That's so freaky, I was just thinking the same thing but about Australia. It's a shame that South Korea have effectively been given a bye to the Semi Finals

I still don't understand the hype around signing a main tank who wasn't good enough for the #8 team when you've already got a main tank as good as Fate

Team France is laughable, it's a shame that this is the headline match because it will just be a routine 4-0 for the 7Lions

For the Inbox Replies feature could you add a filter that allows you to block out all replies to a thread that you've created?

For example my replies list has been swamped by every reply to the whoru thread and I don't really want those posts there, I just want to see direct replies to comments that I have made.

How are you finding the switch from Console to PC?
Would you say 2900 on PC is the level of 4200 on console in terms of game sense?

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

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

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!
