yawn I cant watch the best players in the world play goats for one more match.
lol so many downvotes for the correct prediction
seeing goats or goats like comps every match is getting pretty borring. turns out overwatch needs less hard counters.
ok it has turned from an uphill battle into the great wall of china
damn man china feeling really strong. Canada hoping for some key fights to turn out in their favor but just seems like they are fighting an uphill battle.
jake is actually a really good game caster
I think they get a bit egocentric and usa built their ego being in the finals with south korea last year. It's easy to forget that you have to prove yourself in the games and each game is a new opportunity. Let your ego give you confidence and it may detract from your actual gameplay.
I agree. Not sure what his shatters were doing. Maybe he read that his team was losing the goats war and he needed to make a play but shattering into fusions shield multiple times when he could have saved it.
Also in general it seemed like usa gave the uk alot more opportunities to melt an isolated tank. UK for sure had discipline backing out and giving ground when they needed to and coming back in 6 strong at the right time.
And that time uks winston was zoning the usa widow. Winston had low hp and was completely seperated from his team and any mega healthpacks. And widow healthpacked up to full. Still usa let it be a 1v1 and he won it while the rest of uk also won the other fight. Clearly UK played very well.
Yeah the world cup viewer is awesome. Everything I wanted from an overwatch viewing experience. Would be nice if they allowed the camera smoothing to be toggled off and for commentary to be toggled on. But yeah its awesome. I hope they keep using it for owl.
Thats what jeff kaplan said in the developer update. Also you have the ability to use this mode to replay matches.
Currently all 240hz monitors are using panels that were not intended for 240hz.
0.5 ms may sound insignificant but to those who use them including the pg258q that owl used, they know they do have a bit more motion blur than many expected. 1.0 ms rating is actually a best case transition and average transition times for 240hz monitors are around 3.5ms or higher which are a significant portion of the 4.16 ms frame time.
Look for new monitors advertising 0.5 ms in 2019.
No pressure, Paris. Nooooooooo presure.
The game changes the meta changes. Even the psychology changes. But its hard to be successful when you swap your players so often. Im thinking of dallas and nrg as examples of how swapping doesnt work. If anything you just want room to add one or two players who can cover a new meta. And you want players like seagul or mickie. Adaptable, experienced, and bringing something extra to the table. Then more than anything you want to stick to your players as much as you can. One of the main things holding people back is their own psycology and the teams dropping players all the time adds a new dimension.
Im not trying to say you should ALWAYS stick by your team. But I think there will be teams that do that prove that it can be a really good strategy.
Too bad. They showed some promise at the end. Super volatile league right now. What team will have the balls to stick with thier players? Not florida
:🎂: I have mad respect for the guy. Think he is one of the smartest players. But he gets the birthday cake cause he is doing what he wants. Will rock the dallas fuel pharah skin for him.
As for gameplay changes I think it has become a bit TOO much of a rock paper scissors game. If you play dps its like you HAVE to flex instantly when the enemy changes. Supports are becoming part of this too. Its so bad Ive had games where an enemy dps and I are just holding tab switching back and forth in spawn while our teams fight. Because the difference in being one second late to the fight with the right hero is that big.
Also the hitscan range buff could be toned down a bit for soldier and mcree. Not sure people realize it yet but it makes a big difference not only vs pharah but all heroes.
As a fix for pharah mercy I feel like it was kindof penciled in. Its devistating vs solo longrange pharahs but still mcree and soldier are less than ideal vs pharmercy by themselves. If they want to fix pharmercy they are going to have to spend some time comming up with something better.
And it really speaks to what is causing the whole rock paper scisors problem. The release heroes to fix issues. This has always been the policy. To balance one hero ths just buff others to work against them or add a new hero that crushes them with no skill. To some extent they need to tone the whole thing back and just let skill be skill.
Yeah I agree with this. It got alot better when they increased the report sensitivity for abusive but... I THINK they also just changed the punishment to a one day silence. They need to make it so that it ramps up and they need to make silences after the first also count as a ban from competitive for the durration.
People just laugh when I say enjoy the silence. Im pretty sure its just a one day silence over and over and you can still play comp.
I literally get 5 thank you for reporting messages a day when im playing frequently. The punishments especially for recursive actions have got to be too light. I really love it when my team communicates and stays confident. Almost always win that way.
the owners are probably losing money. they gotta give em something
yeah london was my 1st team i wanted to win and phily was my 3rd
the differences between best of 5 and best of 4 with a tiebreaker and some maps possible to tie are subtle. the main reason its considered a tiebreaker is to cover cases where you could have each team with 2 wins and a tie. besides that its basically bo5
flexibility on the individual level and also coordination and flexibility on the team level with both compositions and strategies has always been something that impressed me with korean teams in general
dallas vs the fuel for the final is gonna be sweet
The whole point of this is really that the committee wants to communicate to the gaming design and development community that they should look at terms like "killing spree" or "team kill" if they want to be taken more seriously by the olympics. The most any gamer representative could speak about is the gereal mentality of competitive gaming around these games and their depiction of violence. Which honestly won't ammount to much. If blizzard is interested in the olympics then they will have already talked about design elements that can be more appealing and may talk more after the committee. Thats the real meat of the situation. What jake and geguri say matters little if at all. What does matter is how the committee feels about the whole thing and as with most human beings that has alot more to do with how people talk to them than the intellectual content communicated.
As far as overwatch or video games being at the olympics I don't think it maters. What matters is really just the populairty and proliferance of video game competitions. This will rise even without being in the olympics.
It's ok dumb people like you will of course not understand and even feel threatened by this.
The difficulty level should be one up from that tv show he was on. I still think the general principal of jake looking good and being pleasant to be around is way more important than anything either one of them could say. And it doesn't hurt to point out the fact that overwatch has a girl in the league representing the pinnacle of competitive play. That alone will surely win some people over automatically.
The whole debate is silly really. Video games are not considered sports because the definition of sports seems to have "and it can't be a video game" in it. What can and can't be a sport is already incredibly vague and is just basically what people want it to be.
Go there, smile, be a female, maybe say something smart while you kiss ass and make "important" people feel good. Then video games are one step closer to being a sport.
Often times there are multiple forum posts on the same thing or copying articles. It would be nice to have comments carried over when the subject matter is exactly the same what do you guys think?
Looks good to me. Also ana is best support right now.
We wanted rocket cat but i guess this will do.
Edit: this will somehow counter the zarya rein hanzo meta. and then rocket cat will naturally counter the mouse robot meta
it will be something meant to balance out the hanzo zarya rein meta by countering the fuck out of half the hero pool and forcing a new oppressive meta as is blizzards policy
Yeah its nice. The camerawork and casting has improved over the season. Was a bit disappointed with the dallas start and the xqc drama but its pretty understandable i guess. Overall i think its on par with the scene it replaced and thats really all i can ask for.
As far as being profitable / continuing well its obvious that that was a big risk from the start. Given how much outside investment they procured I dont think blizzard was ever too concerned about thier own financial risk. And i dont think anyone expected it to blow up like pro sports leagues. The real reason for it to exist is for fun / to make the game feel alive.
Someday esports will blow up. Overwatch still has potential. Blizzard has a tendency to slowly get things right. Right now its mostly an issue of balance patches, patch harmonics with league schedule, and report system effectiveness. As far as the execution of the league itself everything is fine.
I say its a success and i have posted some pretty critical posts about the whole thing before.
3-2 los angeles
also chat is glorifying seagull who they ripped on hard at the start of owl. moral of the story is alot of chat is just kids and immature adults spamming
yeah la is going to win but i will watch and hope that dallas does
Lol the high rated team would crush the level 0 team every time. On one side they are figuring out their strat and using voice to communicate. On the other side they are attacking eachother from the start and getting tilted over every lost fight. One person didnt like how the rest of the team didnt build around him so he went rein and is just charging in and feeding. The two dps are attacking eachother over who is worse and neither is doing anything effective. The one healer actually tried to throw out a comp but because it didnt have hanzo in it the hanzo is now claiming that hes not getting any heals. The only one still trying is doing so because hes not in voice to hear the flamewar but he doesnt realize his team has given up. They all report him for gameplay sabotage. Meanwhile the level 4 team is literally setting up each spawn rape in a highly ochestrated manor. One player has little tank experience but it doesnt matter because his team is filling him in on every enemy action.
What about in game will you be able to see peoples top 5 heroes? Can we set it to team only? Would be nice to hide it from the enemy team but let your team see it.
I expect the system to be abused and simply provide a new reason for people to tilt on eachother. It probably will be fine but to be honest the backbone of the whole thing is still the report system and the agressive silence sensitivity. People have a major coping mechanism in attacking others to make themselves feel better about losing or just in general. Right now the report system seems to be in a delicate state where it is effective but its also close to being sensitive to false reports. Multiple torb and sym onetrick streamers have been actioned. Blizzard seems to be on the fence as well stating that you can play whoever you want and the report system should not be used based on hero selection. While also saying that if you got actioned its working as intended even if you were not trying to throw. Its a pure numbers game and the worst thing that could happen is people abusing it. I think blizzard have the right approach in cultivating positive psychologies. The fear lies in will people start seeing others with high ratings that they dont like and reporting them just to attack them?
So yeah I am for sure paranoid but like most of the changes that have gone into this and heroes of the storm (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE MERCY CANCER META) Im confident that my fears will be unfounded and I will learn to love the changes with time.
If you pay for my food travel lodging and tickets and travel expenses im there
guys guys don't downvote me. It's not about the quality of xqc's posts it's the quality of his FANS posts
