#26 $? vs. GFE – PIT Championship North America OQ SF in Matches
Sideshowbowswer5It'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.
OK I think you strayed a little too far with that analogy. Fnatic have been looking poor recently yeah, but it was a king's row bo1 against a team with some decent talent and they've still got Vone+Haffi on eu ping. Not enough to slam Fnatic into the garbage yet, but after their games in korea and the choke at vegas you can take the lid off the trashcan for sure.

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.

Pendabowswer5PendaNA players are hype beasts smh winning an online bo1 and talking shit
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.
It's an online bo1. Literally means nothing.

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.

#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.

and IMT has been playing great but its way too earlier to put them above c9. They win one smaller LAN that no big teams were really in, and this somehow places them above a team that has dominated the online NA scene for months?

Most of those "big teams" from NA weren't present in that "smaller LAN" because they didn't qualify for it on their own merits. Look at the Winter Premiere qualifier brackets and Group stage fixtures and you would have seen pro teams dropping BO3's to multiple unknown amateur lineups.

21blakkuwolvesIMT and no C9?
There is no reason to put C9 in top10. IMT at least won offline tournament.
Immortals beat a bunch of T2 NA teams to win a LAN. Wow. Good job.

You're actually a fucking idiot if you think those "T2 NA teams" can't compete well enough at an international scale. If anything the only thing wrong with this article is overrating the APEX/Korean scene when we haven't seen enough international competition between Korean/Western teams. NRG was a bad representation for the NA scene in APEX season 1, EnvyUs remains uncontested representing EU in Korea, and the LG/Misfits/Rogue shuffle has arguably made each of their respective lineups weaker overall.

The grand finals of that LAN btw was between Immortals and an amateur team (now pro under GHOST) that had to score landslide 'upset' wins with a fraction of the experience and resources most of these "professional" teams have had since closed beta. Instead of underestimating the tournament results only because C9/Fnatic/Envy weren't there you should ask yourself why Renegades, NRG, FaZe, Luminosity, Complexity, or Selfless didn't make it to the finals over a team that has been unpaid for MONTHS.

#7 Overwatch Patch for January 24th, 2017 - Year of the Rooster in News
ChrizTahFahI also thought new roadhog was in a better place until I noticed that he could one shot zarya which seems unintended. One shotting reaper who is one of the main threats to roadhog is also a little questionable. I like the new hook, but I don't really like how easy it makes it to one shot anything with less than 500hp. I feel like the old post hook damage was much better as it took some focus fire or a perfect combo to kill things with more than 200hp. That being said I didn't hate the old hook mechanics that much either.

Reaper and Mei was always 1-shottable by Roadhog pre-buff as long as you did the movement trick that pulled enemies closer to you. Blizzard just needs to lower his overall damage or change the spread so he can't 1-shot the most reliable anti-tank characters in this game.
