over.gg World Rankings: 8th Jan - 8th April, 2017 in News

Wnv is a Chinese org that won't let their Korean roster play in Apex.

On top of this, the players themselves are not Chinese, so they cannot play in the big Chinese league either

Site update 30th March in Site Discussion

If I search for Hammers, I get three results in the search bar, but no way to tell what link is which. Maybe their should be, in brackets, the current team that each of the three rosters is on.
Something like:
Hammers (defunct)
Hammers (LG Evil)
Hammers (Current)

Editorial: EnVyUs and Rogue are European teams in News

I think the confusion stems from the different ways the flags are used. In EU the flags are used to denote the majority country the team is made up of, while in NA, everyone gets an American flag because they are in NA.
To me there are two ways to do this:

  1. Use only two flags: the US/CA flag and the EU flag to denote which servers each of the teams play on or..
  2. Use the majority country flag of the players on the team.

In Overwatch someone set a precedent with Envy that NA uses system 1, while EU still uses system 2.

personally I think using system 1 is better as it lets you more easily at a glance see which teams play against each other in online tournaments, which form a lot of the competition in OW atm.

Edit: It may also be a cultural thing that EU cares about the Nationality more, as EU is many different distinct groups while NA is really only one

Editorial: EnVyUs and Rogue are European teams in News

Is anyone arguing that they're not European teams?

This seems to come from a place of EU pride and wanting to see the little EU and other EU country's flag next to the team in standings and fixtures, but is that really helpful? Is having the flags denoting the nationality of the players next to any of the teams helpful?

What would be good would be to have the regional flag next to the name of the tournament, to know where the tournament is being played. The flag of the teams doesn't really matter here. But in conversation and in casting and in talking about the players, I don't think anyone is calling Envy an American team except in times when they lose, or they are talking about their record 'back home' which would be NA, as their record in EU is now several months old.

Editorial: Tournament clients are necessary for "competitive integrity" in News

The last day of Apex groups A+B was played on a tournament client, so I would assume the rest of Apex will be as well, and hopefully the next big LANs will be able to use it as well.

But we definitely need replays and resume from replay. Hopefully this is the next big thing they are working on now that their other big projects such as server browser and tournament client have been shipped.

only gripe with this list is Meta Athena. is it just me or did they not impress so far in Apex? They beat MVP and BK who aren't top tier, and the only other thing they did was qualify.
