The point was supposed to be silly banter. I thought people might get a laugh out of how ridiculous what I'm saying is. In an earlier thread I picked Dallas to finish higher than Houston s1, and I still think that's likely, but I cheer for Houston, so I make up shit about the Dallas team because that's what fans do. I understand that I didn't necessarily convey that well, and for that I'm sorry. The twitter war between the Fuel and Outlaws has some pretty sick memes, and I figured, if tftv has good memes, Over.gg would have them too. But I guess Over.gg isn't like tftv, so there's not as much of a place for that, especially when I didn't do a good job explaining what I was trying to do.

My apologies. I guess I shouldn't have expected OWL teams and their fan bases to be treated like traditional sports teams. They are very different and I can see why people would take insults personally, especially when people don't always cheer for the team closest to them geographically. I guess Over.gg is different from TFTV, even if they are made by the same person. Y'all care about actual news and analysis here, rather than banter, is that right?

You do realize this is trash talk, right? None of it is meant to be taken seriously. This is supposed to be similar to how traditional sports teams' fan bases banter. Also, teams that are geographically close to one another traditionally make the best rivals, and Envy and Optic have been rivals for years.
There's a difference between banter and actually trying to start shit. I love Seagull as a player, but I'm an Outlaws fan, so I'll make up shit on him.

In the last few days there's been some pretty sick banter between the Dallas and Houston teams' fanbases, but not enough here on Over.gg.

Dallas Fans are all 10 year old Seagull fanboys who didn't even know who he was until the World Cup last year, and think the Fuel are better than London or Seoul, when we all know there's no chance in hell they're beating those teams. Their management clearly cares more about signing stream personalities than good players, and Taimou is overrated. Linkzr is better than any of these fools.

Also, your team name is stupid. Like, seriously. The only thing fuel makes me think of is gas stations, and how awful they smell. We own Texas, boy.

Go Outlaws!

OWL - Outlaws
WC - Australia
Normal - Kings Gaming Club. I can't not cheer for Termo and Yuki.

Except for maybe the Seoul Dynasty, they definitely have the best branding of any team. Here's hoping I somehow get good at McCree so I can play with that awesome looking skin. #rememberthecorndogs

At least the Mercy meta slightly favors USA, since ryujehong and tobi are so unbelievably good at Ana and Lucio, respectively, that forcing them to not necessarily play those heroes helps.

Then again, Korea could probably run a full-time Symmetra and still not lose a single map.

Zebbosai always finishes second to MGE Mike

posted about 2 years ago

He does. I'm just saying Knoxxx would have done it too.

posted about 2 years ago

They've got ryujehong listed as "sub support". You know your team is good when you've got the captain of the Korean national team and the single most accomplished player in all of OW on the bench.

posted about 2 years ago

I still can't get over how much of a shame it is that Knoxxx isn't in OWL. He would've been perfect for the Fuel, and would've preserved flag meta!

It'll be interesting to see how they use all their DPS players. I hope my boy Clockwork gets some real playing time.

AF is a very good team, or at least, they've played like one very recently. The way they've handled their opponents so far in APAC indicates they're still the team that 4-0'd Ardeont in July and finished 3rd in APEX s3.

Best name so far. Logo is solid, skin is pretty good. Hoping for a great roster to go along with what they've got.

"Ok, chaps, we've bought the London spot, and we've got c9 teams from NA and EU. Surely we can build a team to contend with the combined power of two Overwatch teams... Wait, New York signed a team of Koreans? That's alright with their fans? They're going to destroy us? Well then, I guess we'd better sign a third Overwatch team. I hear these KDP blokes are the consensus best team in the world that hasn't already been signed in OWL... Wait, our Koreans lost? These GC Busan upstarts beat them 4-0? You're telling me our three Overwatch teams aren't going to be enough if someone else picks these guys up? Well, I guess there's only one thing to do. Lads, it seems like three wasn't enough, so we here at Cloud 9 are buying four Overwatch teams. Surely, with this many players, one of them will remember not to get off the objective during overtime!"

But in all seriousness this team will absolutely pound.

It's so strange to me to hear people talk about the "new generation" and how "old OW pros are retiring". The game has been out for less than 2 years. Nobody on Earth is a veteran of the game.

The name isn't awful (although immortals would've been better), the colors are great, but the skin is really strange. Mercy's staff looks messed up.

Envision haven't had a big win since week 1 of contenders. Flash Wolves haven't had a big win since, well, ever. So I guess 2-1 eV?

posted about 2 years ago

Harsha was right. This team won't win a single match.

posted about 2 years ago

It won't fail, necessarily, but the owners are probably going to lose a considerable amount of money. In terms of viewership, it'll be about what we see during the World Cup, at best.

I really liked the play A Raisin in the Sun my freshman year of high school.

Mercy was one of the top 3 most-played heroes in comp before the change. Mercy mains aren't going anywhere. Ana and Lucio, on the other hand...

ez for Team Australia

posted about 2 years ago

LH 3-1. Despite their recent struggles, they still are the team that has shown themselves to be the best in the world over multiple seasons. Miro and ryujehong will find a way to clutch it.

Edit: Well, fuck.

Dota, until very recently, was the usually most played game on steam every day, beating out CSGO in terms of at least raw player numbers. The prize pools in that game are a bit inflated, but it seems like Valve thinks it's a sound economic strategy.

posted about 2 years ago

4-0 Corndogs. FNRGFE is playing like a tier 1 team right now (well, tier 1 NA). Mangachu's pharah is good, but Buds can play well enough to keep the odds in FNRGFE's favor on control maps.
