It's patch 1.25 but Sym is banned.
Hanamura sick, great D from GOATs in end and both teams had a solid offense.
Gladiators are 7-0 on blizzard world! wow maps favor glads
Playoffs start July 11th. All games in July probably on 1.24 or greater.
Just in time for the summer PogChamp.
"Dallas Fuel says FU Aero new head coach."
Hell if I was in Saudi Arabia I would play as a lat player.
So far 9 full registered teams, 51 pending, for 128 they say starts next Friday.
Perhaps if teams couldn't ban the same heroes they banned last game, then over the course of a season you might see several metas evolve over lack of certain heroes. Also clearly they can't figure out balancing so it limits some ridiculous things.
This is a valid point, Bliz/OW wants to expand OWL in the future and probably thinks hosting the Grand Finals in a new venue is a way to do that, but if no one in the NYC area wants to go to OWL finals then it's gonna look pretty silly. Barclay's Center says it can hold 19,000, so it's not like they are filling up a football stadium. Also much bigger capacity than OWL arena.
64 Saudi teams AND 64 teams from the seven other eligible countries will compete in a single elimination bracket,
I'm trying to be funny, i'll be shocked if there are 64 teams full of people from saudi arabia. Maybe theres a large community? IDK
There are 64 teams in Saudi Arabia?

It's all about the benjamins.
There is all-star weekend after the finals.
He's definitely had entire games where he's underperformed this season, but he has also carried very hard some map wins against big teams.
Heroes played are wrong for both teams, I guess.
Even having a korean tracer to scrim with is probably a benefit to the team, can probably help coach jake linkxr and clock when they do flex to tracer
They must have figured out what went wrong last week. Tanks definitely didn't help in the big losses.
Your tracer blink and 180 to stay locked on to targets is incredible, i need to learn that.
Best Necro, learning where legends were made...
if it matters I earned top 500 EU playing soloq on a bootcamped macbook pro with wifi from the floor above me
fuck me i couldn't even make gold on that setup.
I can't tell if that Korean emotion is disgust or beauty.
The oasis final stage was 100% to 95% actually
Since it's 12 teams, they can make Atlantic/Pacific teams with 1 member from each team obviously. Will end up being strange how they do voting since people might pick 6 dps stars.
They should be coloring it in shades of red vs. blue. The white in a video game makes it seem pastel and bland.Even if they gave the white a slight team color hue it wouid look better. Home skins solid, white skins need iteration.
There was already another thread on this topic and the other one had rosters. can we consolidate to 1 thread?
Would be nice if since the season is so long, teams are forced to play subs x amount of games.
All the buffs/nerfs are relative. Roadhog makes a good counter for strong Doomfists since he has the highest raw health pool and can heal doomfist charges. Probably still won't make pro meta but I might play more roadhog since people undervalue him.
Scott Mercer was interviewed on stream with seagull and one of the teasers he dropped was a match history and various info about what they might do with stats.
Pretty necessary right now. It was amusing to see somebody on Reddit offer to analyze someone's online stats when there really isn't a valid stat system for game history. (Which surprise, Paladins already has smh.)
My friends and I are just sick of how it always seems like you get to the point just before overtime is over and still lose. The timer is not kind, whether it's lag related or some overtime compensation. There was also a video on reddit that showed that the overtime fuse favors the one of the teams, i.e. if someone is booped off the fuse doesnt tick down right away.
I will eat Sideshow's shed if there isn't an EU-based franchise. They just haven't locked it down yet.
This is a well planned executed announcer list. Sounds like they'll have a main casting desk local and away locations with legit casters in each area.
:( at least LH and KP so strong it might be a 7 game GF
Teams need to be running ana more against Sombra. Zen 100hp so weak to her.
TAIMOU WHY THE F**K YOU USED THIS EMP JUST BEFORE LOSING POINT ON HANAMURA?!?!?!
^^^, his bigger mistake was not having the small healthpack hacked his team ended up getting stuck around
hat can we do better?
add an ICAL feed so I can add the event calendar to my personal one
What pisses you off?
that there is no ICAL feed
it'd be a cool feature for sure. I need those remidners to watch 4am games from korea.
The group stage results of Contenders were super confusing because the checkbox and x showed up after the first day of group stage play. Some way to wait to apply those tags would be less confusing.

Time stamp for the ridiculous Control Center round with the Cwoosh 4kftw: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/148917422?t=06h03m52s
I expected you to reach diamond at the end of that map. Platinum does seem to lend itself to tight 5 round KOTH games, it seems choking and creating reverse sweeps is too common.
The Player Handbook actually shows a slightly different map setup which makes more sense (not including the comp names).
Best of 3: Payload / Control / 2CP
4 Game Set: Hybrid / Control / 2CP / Payload
Best of 5: Control / Payload / 2CP / Hybrid / Control
Best of 7: Control / Payload / 2CP / Hybrid / Control / Payload / Hybrid
You Europeans are so commonly bilingual, I'm guessing l'internethulk probably speaks French as well?
So weird to see the former APEX champion lucio/tank becoming an analyst for the other side. Almost feels traitorish? I guess go where the money takes you, perhaps?
Did you miss the Overwatch PIT tournament? Same 4 maps for 4 days and then on the 5th day of group stage they switch the map pool entirely. This map pool setup was fine.
Also Sideshow's mic was super quiet. I was trying to watch a bit at work but if I turned it down to a stealthy level all I'd hear was Jamerson...
Us OW watchers are so spoiled by NGE/ogn production teams!
Why change the map pool after the 4th round robin game? And having such a small pool weirdly balances it towards practicing certain maps.
This is similar to what I dreamed up in another post, but based on the slide that was presented it doesn't seem like they have any intention of doing it.
So they [Americans/Euros] for example, would rather spend months in Korea at a time as they currently do for APEX?
If anything they should really have like 4 teams a region and have some intercontinental play and not a ton. In America, baseball has the American league and National league and they play their division teams more often then the other teams in the entire league.
4 Pacific teams, 4 Asian teams, 4 NA, 4 EU, etc.etc.,
having 16 teams randomly plucked in places seems like a stretch.
"Overwatch League" as Blizzard wants to dream it up could work if it's not the same as just passively watching LoL/CS/DOTA, but if it's just pro teams becoming regional entities it's not going to draw a ton of focus. If IRL watching events included convention-like gaming experiences it could be well attended. I could see myself going to a Boston OW team event if there is some other draw to it. Big cities like Boston could use more internet/gaming cafes. Perhaps if these are part of the home arena it could boost the draw. High-refresh rate gaming isn't something every PC (and no console) gamers get, the chance to demo OW at one of these events could draw more people in.
Anecdotally, even though OW has sold millions of units, a good fraction of those players aren't playing the game anymore and have no interest in watching competitive OW. There was a lot of hype around some of my circles at launch and now it's only the diehards that love FPSs who are still playing it. OW the universe drew a lot of people in, but the game itself is a particular blend of FPS that doesn't attract everyone.
But if there are more opportunities for casual or high-ladder OW players to play on teams (B-teams for practice, or local amateurs mixed with pros?), then it could attract a more wide spread viewer base. But as it is right now with low viewer counts for current professional tournaments, it doesn't make sense for OW to be a million dollar league without something drastically different.
