Danye is such a beast, I hope he gets himself on a top team soon

My favourite contenders team getting signed to an org is amazing news, I'll be so happy for them all if it goes through.

I know it's a little thing but I really don't like their new name, I'll keep on supporting them nonetheless though

If you're in Silver it's because you fundamentally don't understand how to play the game not because Moira is too tanky

That Volskaya gave me goosebumps

So I was downfragged a lot at the time for disagreeing with the hive mind that NYXL were sandbagging during stage 4, so now that some time has passed and the playoffs have come and gone for New York I ask you all the question, do you still think they were sandbagging?

The main argument was that there was no reason for NYXL to reveal strats ahead of the playoffs so instead they were simply testing other teams out to probe for weaknesses whilst at the same time giving nothing away. Does that make sense though? They knew the new Hanzo was going to be live during the playoffs, they knew that the meta was going to change quite dramatically and that old strats would be rendered useless. Any weaknesses that they discovered would also surely be spotted and fixed by the teams they played during vod review and analysis so is it even worth it to reveal the weakness during the main season?

The only reason I see as somewhat logical is that they sandbagged and didn't prepare for games in order to reduce burnout and give the team a chance to breathe. This makes sense from one perspective, the season was long and a huge grind, performing so consistently at the top for so long no doubt takes a lot out of you both individually and as a team. Was it wise to take the foot off of the pedal though? Whilst NYXL were taking it easy it seems like other teams such as Spitfire and Fusion never let up, yes their Stage 4s weren't incredible either but from what it seems, they didn't stop working hard to improve at any point and they've come good in the playoffs. I accept for both of these teams it might just be the meta but I'd also argue that the pressure that they were under during stage 4 kept them on their toes and they were able to carry that momentum forward.

All of this being said NYXL still went 7-3 in Stage 4 which is a tremendous achievement. I realise I've asked a million questions but I'll ask a few more: Do you still think NYXL were sandbagging or were the teams that defeated them actually just better teams on the day? If you do think they were sandbagging do you still think it was the correct call to make given their semi-final exit in the playoffs after a 2-0 defeat? I don't mean any of this in a "Hey losers, I was right all along" way, I'm genuinely curious. For example I'd perfectly understand if you think they were sandbagging, it was the right call and Fusion were just the better team/got lucky with the meta for the playoffs

My new Fusion jersey, snapback and glass arrived today just in time for the match tomorrow. Can't wait for another easy 3-0 and I can't wait for the final where they might play some Koreans who know what they're doing

Okay so I'm probably biased as a Zen main but I think every single one of us aspires to be jjonak. Okay yeah we can't but we still dream. I'm interested to see how he does in a none Zen meta.

Btw my personal MVP was Carpe but again I'm biased

I'm 100% with you here, if I have to pay to watch a load of games that aren't timezone friendly to me then there just isn't much point

That Boomhog though! Great series I'm glad we're back

From my perspective academy teams are here to test out potential players to see if they will fit into their OWL roster. There are exceptions like British Hurricane but generally these teams are wanting to try out the next big stars and as always seems to be the case a lot of them are Korean. I very much doubt the academy teams are playing for the prize pools.

I started to grow tired of the grind of the regular season but now I'm ready more than ever for some OWL. Let's go Fusion!

Huge C9 from Bye Week on Anubis, without that the map win easily could have been the catalyst for a reverse sweep

It has always baffled me that there is enough money in this for pro players to risk their careers over it. Like who are all of these people buying these accounts? Do they not have better things to spend their money on?

Congrats on your promotion to Contenders!

It must suck for Surge but rules are rules I guess. Originally I felt so bad for Surge but after I put myself in the position of PIXL it was definitely the right move

I love the storyline we've created on over.gg where Robokun is the number one villain

From a personal perspective, meh it's been fun I guess, bit boring as an EU fan not being able to watch games live and it has dragged on a bit too. The production is great when I do actually watch a game but there's no hype on my end anymore. I've had much more fun watching the recent PIT tournament where I actually stop what I'm doing deliberatly to watch the games by setting aside time, that's not something I can say I've done for OWL since stage 2.

Gonna go a bit hipster and pick Croatia, their team is scary and they started well too

Do people actually like Semmler?

Whenever he's casting it's a pure ResidentSleeper from me which is a shame because Hex does such a great job. It still feels like he doesn't understand the flow of the game and misses key moments in team fights, at times it's like he's just describing the kill feed to us.

New York with yet another display of strategic genius! Clearly sandbagging against a top team like Shock to try and provoke weaknesses and gather information for the playoffs.

Except Shock won't be in the playoffs and the meta will be very different so the information is useless. NYXL still next level brains though!!!!!
