#39 AUS vs. ITA – World Cup 2017 Sydney C in Matches

I think Aus and Taiwan are both favourites for their group, Taiwan very much so whereas Sweden may be able to bring it to Aus.

I'm still going with Rogue overall for the win though, I think unless there's a big meta change away from dive the constant practice will overcome the Korean side.

Because it's a top20 world team against a tier 4/5 EU mix

#4 AF Blue vs. KDU – Bigfile Overwatch Battleroyal KotH R3 in Matches

Should be much closer imo, Uncia were in a swamp of awful play during groups and they aren't now. I think AFB should win but this is a new look for Uncia, trying to get back into being a solid tier 2 team in Korea.

#3 FIN vs. VNM – World Cup 2017 Sydney D in Matches

Zappis is playing D.Va for RiP as far as I know, so I imagine it'll be similar here. Only difference to RiP is that Davin plays Tracer while Taimou normally plays S76. Pretty big difference though! Maybe they go triple dps the whole time with zappis on tracer or run more rein comps.

I really liked making this one because it's such a clear demonstration of good macro play and ult economy. Would recommend.

#27 over.gg World Rankings: 6th April - 10th July, 2017 in News

I definitely appreciate the love for flash wolves and the only reason they're not in is the lack of a channel of communication between them and every other scene in Overwatch. That's the only reason. Its impossible to tell where they rank because OPC is so isolated from the rest of ow. Otherwise by form they'd be in around 9 or 10. As for Liquid, you should try collecting their results over the last 3 months. They have losses across a range of teams like TO, Gale Force, CLG, etc.without the wins that ARC6 have.

#5 Did the former Selfless roster stay together? in General Discussion

Not as far as I'm aware. I've heard of Movistar Riders players trialling for a number of teams, heard of a couple Selfless players trialling. Seems unlikely but maybe a few of them might stick together?

#19 FRA vs. ARG – World Cup 2017 Shanghai B in Matches

I'm pretty sure a lot of that is that other Tracers have stepped up massively since November/December 2016. He had very little competition back then - even at the beginning of 2017 - but there are others who have reached and surpassed him by now for sure. I'm not sure his personal level has gone down significantly. Others have become used to playing around Tracers and have strong ones of their own to check him / outperform him.

#3 Lunatic-Hai sister team revealed on stream in News

I put zero stock in the showmatch to give any indication of how strong this roster is, and the team certainly doesn't scream "talent" to me, but given how successfully L-H #1 were able to keep up their skill and adapt, perhaps the org can do the same here. More interested in whether L-H #1 takes that Seoul spot and is transferred off elsewhere. There's no way L-H just made this roster to sit about. They don't have a spot for it in APEX unless L-H #1 disappears.

#31 Overwatch League announces seventh city and future plans in News

When you consider the combined might of all of the marketing arms of these ridiculously large companies or people involved, it'd be a travesty if the publicity was an issue. I think that will convert into viewership if the teams are good enough and they should be.

It seems likely that Seoul will use L-H, with their sister team replacing the current roster in APEX, Shanghai will field a relatively competitive Chinese team, Immortals have a solid base to work from with a genuinely strong team, and NRG and Misfits both have time to replace people as necessary to form a top team worthy of being in there. The two newcomers in Kraft and Wilpon will have the resources to either buy Rogue/EnVyUs (or possibly another Korean team but seems unlikely), or form their own idea of a superteam from Korean/Western pieces. That's before any other owners sign up as well with their opportunities to bring in good teams.

Anybody who fields a shit team to OWL will get roasted. Even though the level of competition is unlikely to match that of APEX in the past three seasons, where the best region played the best few foreign teams, it's gonna be global, competitive, and well publicised. It's also not gonna have any other more competitive league in the world other than APEX, which has stopped taking foreign teams so loses that charm.

Why would viewers not watch? It'll be promoted through in-game items, client announcements, social media everywhere, hopefully in the game itself (though not announced at all yet). I feel more confident now than I did before this announcement. Not saying they'll get hundreds of thousands for every match but APEX finals got something like 150k last season and this will be pushed harder with teams more people in the West care about.

As for your questions to locality robokun, your issues actually make no sense! The games are all happening in LA for the first season, so there's no problem with lack of attendance at local venues. When those are implemented, it will be Overwatch fans/players turning up to watch, same as any other esport - they are just ALSO likely to capture some small chunk of the local wider esports or gaming fanbase.

Would people in LA turn out to see Immortals despite their three Korean players? Fuck yeah of course they would! People aren't put off by watching others of different nationalities, and if they were then American CS:GO major tournaments (with majority European/Brazilian teams and players making finals) would flop in attendance. They're fans of the game, the competition, even the teams and players without that local connection. The locality of it only adds something to those who would otherwise be uninterested. To a 'hardcore' fan it doesn't add much but it crucially takes nothing away.

This clip made me love xQc, he's a straight baller. Idk why people in Overwatch get their panties in a twist over people who aren't bland, polite personalities. Give me some rivalry, banter, and passion any day.
