"SDB vs Kang"

We actually have improvised watch parties on Discord, in #tournament-talk. Whenever a match happens, don't hesitate to start the discussion here, people will follow. It's the same with voice chat, offer to go in VC while watching a game and often people will follow the initiative.
As for coaching pages, I agree 100%, we should have that. Also have them listed in the team pages. #GiveChefHeidiAPage
Runner was here!! He hugged everyone after the match on stage! https://twitter.com/deeeepQQ/status/1028204140055343104/
For team Korea it didn't have huge implications, for RunAway though it was a way to prove their worth against some of the best OWL players. I think RunAway did a great job.
They're all in Korea yes.
Shame "Rawkus" Flaherty
Glad to get some positive streamers in OW on Twitch though!
Thing is, Outlaws get their colors from OpTic Gaming, so unlikely to change imo. Plus this color scheme gained them so many fans already.
OH MY GOD
PINK RUNAWAY SKINS INCOMING
As of recently, Overwatch is a game where in order for someone to have fun, it requires their enemy to not have fun. You're having fun with your cool Brigitte combos? Great, but the enemy is having a shitty time being permastunned and knocked back to spawn. You're having fun with the invisibility, teleportation and hack from Sombra? Fantastic, but the enemy probably doesn't want to play hide and seek while their abilities are unavailable. You're having fun with Hammond just rolling around a pole with 2000 HP, or with the new Symmetra wall with 5000 HP, or 1v1ing a DPS as Moira? Awesome, but you know, the enemy doesn't have fun having to cut through all that HP and lifesteal.
This is why I left Overwatch, tbh. It's not that I hate the game itself or that I'm fed up with it, it's because every. single. change Blizzard makes contributes to ruining the fun of those who have to confront those changes.
That, and also the fact that Blizzard hates when people find cool stuff with their engine and remove it instead of making it a feature just like almost every other FPS (:
There are as many coaches and managers as there are players monkaS
I will only speak of Fusion because they're my favorite team.
Neither HOTBA nor Poko will leave. They both have their specialties, they both perform well, and they're both loved by the fans. I see no reason to make them leave.
Joemeister will likely move to a background spot: coach, analyst, or something. Dayfly will probably stay, or be traded.
Fragi might be transferred, but if he does, it's certainly going to be to an OWL team, I doubt he falls back to Contenders. He certainly is OWL level. Even then, I think he's still an asset to the team, and I'm sure they can fit him in some strategies where Sado wouldn't particularly fit.
Snillo being transferred doesn't sound like a surrealist idea, but I think they can make great use of his Soldier if needed. He's also a pretty good McCree, so if the meta shifts to double hitscan again (which, given the hitscan buff, might happen), they can run Carpesnillo again. Their duo is super deadly, so it would be a shame to break it. Overall I think they'll keep Snillo.
ShaDowBurn... As much as I love him and dislike EQO, his very particular playstyle doesn't really blend in with the rest of the team. It's a really tough situation. He might be transferred, but I would hate it. I hope they can make him fit somehow.
The rest will stay, 100%.
As for recruiting FU players, I doubt they'll do that a lot. They'll probably just use FU as a talent greenhouse and help players grow until they sell them, and only recruit them if they need someone in that role (ie. Alarm, but when they have Boombox, he might just be a benchwarmer).
To put it in a nutshell, my fangirl heart think and hope they'll stay together for a lot longer, because they look like a really united family and have shown how far they can go by sticking together when the world was against them.
decide if Linkrz will be hitscan or projectile
PEOPLE SHOULD STOP PUTTING PLAYERS IN SUCH DETERMINED AND UNFLEXIBLE ROLES THANKS
LiNkzr is too good of a Genji and Widow to stop him from being that. He's the central point of the Outlaws besides their tank line and Rawkus, and as Gigantti said, "just let LiNkzr do his things, and it works".
Also I doubt Seoul will get rid of Gambler.
Mangachu back on D.Va???
For real though, I'd love to see TiZi play again, along with WooHyal.
Yui like... Jasmine Tea Yui from TF2??? POGGERS if that's the case
That guy chose a name very dear to me as a nickname and plays the same role than me and I honestly don't know if I should hate him or root for him and his team until death lol
:candle: for Fusion, so close to stage playoffs again. Hope most of the roster will stay the same next season. Hyped for league playoffs though.
The two-way player thing is awesome, that means players on bench can still participate in tournaments and show their worth, meaning we might see more trades or less permabenched players. Really looking forward to that.
Do you guys go for the Nerd-signal just like the Bat-signal?
hopefully in jail, unironically

So for me:
whatever team he decides to go to, I'll support his decision.
Pay me the plane and I'm coming I'm not kidding I know someone to host me and I can pay for food and I'm free this weekend
you people really want mendo in lmao i love it
So now, you can vote for your OWL All-Star team for each division: https://twitter.com/overwatchleague/status/1002590077887787008?s=19
Let's share your teams and discuss them!
For my Atlantic division team I went with:
Mostly NYXL players because they're so good, plus Gesture who's an awesome tank and most importantly Carpe, my favorite player of the whole league.
Pacific division team is this:
Fleta, Shaz and Fissure were the first obvious choices. Choosing an offtank was a bit harder but in the end I went with Space because he's really good at the game. Then Surefour and Gambler because I love them and they're doing great imo.
What are everyone's teams?
I know we are competing hard with Reddit
We're really not
over.gg is here to follow the Overwatch competitive scene, while Reddit is here because it is. It exists because it's what subreddits do. As much as I like /r/compow, it's just a clusterfuck.
Only improvements I might like to see on the site is the inclusion of coach information on the team pages. Actually that'd be huge.
YES PLEASE ENIGMASTER
Like currently for OWL we just have some kinda confusing standings in the "summary" section but I think we could expand this into win streaks and power rankings and such to really make it pop.
We actually have those on the Teams section of the website.
and a bit more in depth discussion of balance and patch changes.
Usually those happen in the comments of the articles describing every patch. What I would like to have though is metagame discussion: sharing ideas to counter some comps, discussion on how to deal with some combos, strategy ideas, etc. I don't think there's anything like that anywhere. All it takes is starting a thread on the forums, and I would personally be down to discuss this kind of stuff because it's really interesting to me, so if anyone wants, go ahead!
Overall I think the website is in a really good place. Most people know that the website exists, everyone goes here for schedule, events and teams and also for the amazing news coverage our wonderful redactors give us, and the most active members regroup in a great community that is fun and great to hang out with, whether it is on the website or on Discord.
(Also this should probably have gone in "Site Discussion"?)
PoiChamp report as always! Thanks for the useful info <3
I genuinely wonder if Geguri will play Zarya or Brigitte.
