EU LCS franchising is also happening. While those talks really haven’t had much reporting the buy-in cost is like a third of what an investment group would pay to be a european OWL team next year assuming they can negotiate all the way down to the 35mill USD minimum.
Its kinda sad but Open Division basically serves the same purpose that ESL Go4 does.
Confirmed or reported by major outlets
Washington DC 🇺🇸
Possible but not rumored, possible season 3
Sao Paulo 🇧🇷
I think they will become the New XL2 since pretty much all of those players except maybe Cloneman and Goliath are probably OWL bound.
Mangachu, Tizi, WooHyaL, Nanohana, Adam and Nenne are all quality players.
would not be shocked if its flow3r on tracer with mangachu still starting
korean rumor mill thinks nenne is going to vAliant
time will tell.
but their season (as in shot at end of year playoffs) is practically over at this point bar miraculous happen stance.
as in ex-Kongdoo DNCE?
In korea yes. Players are paid chicken seed
Finding my discord shitposter calling.
dont twist ya knickers yet
ol Andy Rush will probably do contenders as will anyone who has been left out more than likely.
if this was later in the season i would agree with you hardcore.
but for now philly is a team without significant scrim time together compared to the rest of the league and with likely very few players in town for long enough to get used to a timezone shift.
Fusion might have better players on paper but Outlaws will be better prepared for week 1
PHL 1-3 HOU
tfw only 5 of these teams will "make it" to contenders
we probably know some of them will get picked up by people who hold the slots in contendies anyway
How does one have over 1000 posts but not even 2 full nerd stars???
NO MORE FASHIES IN ESPORTS
:rage: :point_right: :door:
i mean why would they disband if they havent lost some of their players
stands are steep and i like that. Esports tifo time lads. Should create a better enviroment when full. Especially with 400 seats. Kinda wish the stage was closer to the fans though.
Heres hoping concessions actually makes food because otherwise it looks like a convenience store. Gear store seems small. Hoping they will be able to stock team jerseys, scarves and hats for all the clubs.
Other than that a liqour license would be useful.
NO LGD WAT
Ooooo that logo is dope as hell
My favorite match will be one i see in person, i dont really have a fav tbh
Reinhardt, Winston, Roadhog and Bastion
Overwatch is my most played game at the moment but i have a soft spot for the Need for Speed franchise. I own every single main series game from the franchise that released on PS2 and PS3 and i enjoy almost all of them
And Mendo as a streamer and Alicus as a General Manager
C9 has 24 people with their organization for Overwatch wtf.
EZ 4 M17
FeelsBadMan 4 Nippon
London Bluebirds Electronic Sports Club-Simplistic name-could fit the cloud9 colors and thematics easily, also super easy to make a mascot suit out off. :)
London Ironworks Professional Gaming Club-Referencing Thames Ironworks Football Club, a steelworker's team that laid the groundwork for the club now known as West Ham United.
London Pilots Electronic Sports Club-Referencing the well known history of the British Royal Air Force
the rumor about faze is something i heard on discord.
everything else is just guesses and speculation
rumors are that FaZe Clan is close to a deal to be a part of season 1 although there is no information on what market they will represent, although the Las Vegas teamhouse for Carpe, George and the boys might have something to do with it.
I think that we will see what comes up but i do believe that the current official teams plus FaZe, EnVy and a second European franchise in either Paris, Frankfurt, Cologne or Berlin will be where we launch the league from. negotiations will likely continue to take place for additional franchises for season 2 and beyond. expect Season 1 to last from early december to late april with double round robin league play and the opening round of playoffs taking place at a studio in Southern California with the Semis in a larger arena in town before going overseas for finals, likely in a city that will gain a team for season 2
On a side note- inner city derbies in places like Seoul, LA, Toronto, London and Moscow would be cool
reminder: OGN is a tv station and the Korean language broadcast was also on Afreeca which is similar in popularity to twitch over there. Twitch is only a portion of the total viewership although i would still expect it to be somewhat down on last season viewership. RunAway was a one of a kind story.
prolly like whenever there are sizable relevant topics to discuss
50/50 split western teams and korean teams :eyes:
-im looking forward to overwatch esports failing-
2-2 equals draw equals 1 point in the group standings per team.
FNRGFE is 5 points back, if they dont maximize points in their next 2 fixtures Arc6 qualifies for playoffs
I M P O R T S O N S ** W A T C H ?
putting 3 of the best 5 teams in the tournament in a single group
OGN Super Babo In Jung
RL won't come around even if it does succeed as an esport.
most of that video is "LIBRULZ MAKIN MUH VIDYAGAEMZ REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" to put it memeily
NRG playing like they have senioritis :thinking:
also bo1s HYPERLUL
the only reason TSM cant afford it is probably because they aren't willing to sell equity.
they are to LoL what EG has turned into for Dota
We are looking at building 2 separate rosters, a Masters+ and a Diamond and below, if you're interested PM me here on overgg and i will send you a link to the team discord. tryouts are this weekend.
ToucanSquad, due to interest from both upper and lower level players may split into 2 rosters.
1 for Diamond and Below. (ToucanSquad.Prime)
Another for Masters and up. (ToucanSquad.Mighty)
The 2 rosters will share an analyst (sandshrewz) and a manager (myself) who will schedule the scrims.
The split will only occur if there is interest from enough high level players to do so.
We are also looking for people willing to record the vods of team(s).
