#4 Runner and Mirage step down from starting RunAway roster in News

It's so fucking sad a team as good as Runaway was never got picked up or recognized for their accomplishments in Apex.

#4 ex-BK Stars Carpe joins Selfless for Contenders in General Discussion

Carpe is a phenomenal player that I think is underrated because of BK Star's performances. I don't think Midnight would be a better replacement at all.

#8 KDP vs. Mighty AOD – OGN APEX Season 3 Regular Season Group A in Matches

It really bothers me how OGN stacked this group for Rogue and AOD when it seemed like they would've made playoffs in the other groups. In general the other groups don't even compare in overall skill level. 3 out of the 4 teams have the same W-L record now but only 1 of them is making playoffs even though they all lost head to heads with each other (Rogue to KDP and KDP to AOD and AOD to Rogue). Number of maps won should be rarely used to determine who makes playoffs and yet that was a given for this group from the beginning. Hopefully next season it doesn't happen.

#20 LH vs. Rogue – OGN APEX Season 3 Regular Season Group A in Matches

Yeah I definitely feel like sonething is messed up in the tourney organization when it's possible to miss playoffs even after beating the best team in groups with a 1-1 record. Rogue's group was really too stacked compared to EnvyUs.

#12 Say it ain't so—Denial parts ways with Overwatch team in News

Yeah I have a gut feeling that after Denial's strong results at the Monthly Melee and xQc's stream growing to around 2k viewers the org still didn't want to negotiate benefits or a raise.

#25 $? vs. GFE – PIT Championship North America OQ SF in Matches

yeah I know it was exaggerated. I played on a team with half of the players from "you guys get paid?" and they're talented and have worked really hard to try going pro. It makes me mad when up and coming teams are discounted for beating pro teams. People did that to Kungarna (now Splyce) and bird noises (now LG Evil) during the Winter Premiere because "LUL quad-tank meta" since they love their popular closed beta personalities and teams so much like Seagull and Fnatic.

#21 $? vs. GFE – PIT Championship North America OQ SF in Matches

You're a professional lineup that has been around since closed beta in a gaming house with multiple months of LAN experience against the best teams in the world at APEX and then lose to a half-month old team that's been given no opportunities or money whatsoever. It's the equivalent of losing to a 6 stack of Bronze players in ranked and a situation that should be physically impossible if you're playing at that caliber. Your excuse is dogshit.

#16 $? vs. GFE – PIT Championship North America OQ SF in Matches

Hafficool from Fnatic was the first one to talk shit on NA teams. Then they come back with more than a month of experience against tough Korean competition and get destroyed. It doesn't even matter if it's BO1 at that point it's inexcusable and embarrassing for a professional team sent to represent the West in Korea to lose against a new amateur NA roster.

#10 Overwatch League figures emerge; estimates for bids range from 2 to 15 million in News

As a long time FPS player i actually find the lack of movement accel in Overwatch to be a really good change for FPS games. You can argue that accel/air strafing adds another dimension of skill to the genre but the mechanics are so subtle most players let alone eSports spectators will never ever notice how important it is. It's fucking retarded to lose duels in an FPS if you have equal or better aim and gamesense simply because your opponent can stafe jump to the pickups better in Quake or reset their recoil/movement spread faster in CS:GO.

That is a disadvantage you cannot willfully overcome without putting more time in the game; there is no other alternative. It wouldn't be an issue if most popular FPS games in the genre didn't have incredibly specific movement mechanics that barely transfer well between each other adding artificial difficulty to each separate title.

MOBA mechanics aside Overwatch plays like an incredibly clean and straightforward FPS title which I find hard to criticize.
