I have a feeling Vizility is about to get a phone call from the Gladiators...
I'd like to see spark pick up another dps to pair with godsb, shadowburn to justice, and Jehong and tobi to mayhem
I love how Huk had really nice things to say about all of the other players and their contributions to the team, but for Aimgod all he said was "Aimgod is a talented player"
The Sparkle bidding war is going to be nuts
The timeline where Houston slowly replaces its entire roster with former Shock players is a strange one.
The game is being shown on ESPN. On Saturdays, ESPN airs college football games all day. They like being able to broadcast OWL, but not if it takes away from their most profitable content. On Sundays, nfl games are aired on Fox, CBS, and NBC instead, so ESPN has time slots available for non-football related shows.
Striker's quiet revenge tour is almost complete. 4-1 Shock
To be fair, they are playing Titans, the one team with an even better win percentage in OWL. Also, Mayhem won 36 maps this season, so your intuition on that stat was correct, but maybe not for the reason you were thinking.
Bazzi on Doomfist 4-2 Fried Weiner
Who needs a full team of OWL and high-tier contenders players when you have Hafficool, I guess
Playoff Profit 4 - 2 Empty Sandbags
Hopefully this time around it goes better for Mineral and the team doesn't end up like Mayhem
It seems really strange that Boston is #1 in adjusted SOS despite being in the Atlantic division. They had to have been really unlucky.
Denmark shouldn't lose a single map for the rest of the tournament. Their roster is insane compared to everyone else.
I hope DuDuDuDuDuDu is able to find another team
Both Sigma players had gold damage on every map this game. He's a main tank. His normal left click just does so much work plus he's really difficult to kill if you aren't Doom.
We pray for Atlanta Reign now, I guess
Edit: Now I understand what this is talking about yes playing the same map twice is probably not a good thing.
Cameron, Mouffin, Punk, and Swimmer are all native English speakers, and as far as I know Scaler and Klaus are both fluent in English as well. They probably had better communication than the Uprising OWL team.
He got absolutely rolled by Linkzr on junkertown. YXL was the best dps player in the server that match and taking him out could have cost Chengdu the match.
Danteh said "here, Chengdu, take this emp, my life, and a spot in placements" on Hollywood. Baconjack then tried his best to lose it, but in the end, YXL was able to cover for him.
There are now 2 teams in OWL that have won more games in stage 4 than in the other 3 stages combined
Time for a necro: knowing what we know now, which of these teams would be the best (assuming they played during season 2)? I'd probably go with Volamel's team (Detroit), if only because he didn't specify which players would be starters, so he gets the benefit of the doubt over RadoN (Gangnam) who benched Twilight and Decay.
Second Wind, Phase 2, First Generation, Second Generation, Square One, and now, finally, Third Impact.
no engineer no win
I'd probably go with either Haksal or Twilight, but DDing wouldn't be bad either.
So, rookie of the year is probably going to produce a better result for who the mvp is than the actual mvp. Nice.
I'm curious as to why a team with EQO would trade for another brig player, but I guess Kyb would be a good option if for whatever reason EQO wasn't playing. Maybe they can trade for Fusions or Kruise and slam teams with the 3 brit meta.
The showdown to determine the fate of all of Overwatch, at least until they play again in playoffs.
your move, every other team composition
Alternative slightly less hot take: NYXL is an extremely inconsistent team and judging Dallas'/Taimou's performance based on a singular match is useless.
Chengdu number 1 I guess
The big worry comes from the fact that not all of the queues are going to be the same length. Especially at lower levels, the DPS queue time will be 5-10 times longer than tank queue time. Hopefully this will encourage dps players to bite the bullet and learn other heroes, but in a worst-case scenario a decent proportion of the player base might just stop playing.
Well, most teams just lose to Titans and Shock anyways, and if you forced teams to declare starting lineups before the ban phase, you eliminate the problem of shock having the best Tracer player (I'm assuming you're talking about Striker). The issue ends up being that you just don't get to see the best players on their best heroes. Imagine how much less fun games would be if everyone just always banned Zen against Jjonak. Or if DDING and Jinmu never got to play Pharah.
If the goal was to get rid of goats, this is probably the worst way to do it. You could better solve the "problem" while simultaneously allowing for creativity in comp choices by simply deleting brig.
Wait but DPS is a main tank player
I never realized I could want a player to somehow get signed to OWL this much. All of the casters would cower in fear at the prospect of having to say DuDuDuDuDuDu on stream.
I mean if Violet is such a good flex support how could rebellion lose contenders now? It'd be like XL2 having UltraJjonak!
nLw have already clinched their spot in contenders and as such casters will have to say their team name without laughing throughout the entirety of the season.
Mayhem Academy to follow?
University of Waterloo
Vancouver out here speedrunning this series. Two 100-0's and a full hold.
It makes the site not a quite as much of a financial burden for enigma and you can ignore the betting stuff fairly easily
Yuki coming in hot to pull off the upset
Vancouver and Shock are just a tier above everybody else at this point. Not much more to say.
Florida kinda looked better today than they have in the past. Winning control against Philly is a start, and they were fairly competitive on King's Row and Junkertown. If Swon starts playing better and Saya gets more comfortable on brig, the Mayhem could at least pass the University of Waterloo and climb out of the bottom tier of teams.
Unless Gladiators legion sign a new player this will be the contenders debut for xQc
I miss seagull, runner, kresnik, and the crazy shenanigans of hero limit 0. Also I loved the 2016 world cup and how the US went up against the Koreans with Ster on Ana against Jehong and how Muselk's Australia team somehow got a win.
One thing to add is that the stadium itself won't actually open until 2021 so next season the fusion will have to play in an existing location in Philly.
