#7 Thorin's Seagull Rant in General Discussion
OrangePearsharshaOrangePearsWhat do you guys think? I feel like it was a lot to say without giving us proper evidence.i don't understand why people ask for evidence when people clearly won't give it because it'll put OTHER'S lives in jeopardy.

either trust thorin or don't - asking for evidence makes no sense.

Why would players talking about why their past org not performing well put them in jeopardy? No one is inherently flaming Seagull. They're just honestly talking about issues faced.

Would you not hire someone after they told you what they found lacking in their previous job?

Someone has never been employed.

#13 IMT vs. NRG – Overwatch Monthly Melee April 2017 Groups Group A in Matches

NRG actually looks alright. I think seagull made a mistake "retiring". Their performance is kinda what you'd expect from a team that hasn't competed in like 4 months.

This is reminiscent of the arguments that go on in the UFC/other mma orgs, and to a less extent in boxing. Matches that make the most sense from the sports perspective, vs matches that attract the most eyeballs. The reason UFC has gotten as big an popular as it has, basically burying other orgs, is because until their recent sale they have leaned heavily towards matches that make the most sense in terms of finding out who is best, not just making fights between the most popular.

I don't think this particular instance is a HUGE deal because NRG should still be competitive, but favoring popularity over performance in event invites can do serious long term damage to the "sport" overall, because it become less and less of a sport, and more and more of an occasional spectacle.

#20 Alienware Monthly Melee March groups revealed in News

You can still play scrims, the tournament doesn't start tomorrow. Meanwhile you're saying scrims are as valuable as playing in an actual competitive environment with stakes? That's not remotely true. A round robin group tournament that's online is perfect to hone whatever game you might be developing. I don't see any reason not to do it except insecurity in not wanting to appear like the same losing nrg side they were before. That's the completely wrong approach if you actually want to get better.

SideshowNRG are also not playing in PIT Championship, as they feel they haven't had enough time to gel as a team

Is that trolling? The way you gel as a team is by playing high level teams...

#14 KDP vs. LW Blue – OGN APEX Season 2 Playoff Group B OM in Matches
WallhuggerThat Lijang match was crazy. Those ult charges looked like pre global ult nerf. I just want to see Panthera and LH play a 2CP map seeing how good they both are on them.

I don't want to see anyone play a 2cp map pre spawn change. That anubis round was completely fucking ridiculous (in a bad way).
