FaZe vs. FNC – MLG Vegas Invitational MLG Vegas Playoffs SF in Matches

Ok, seems like I haven't watched a game where a team I root for wins for ages. It's a surprisingly nice feeling.

Misfits vs. LH – IEM Gyeonggi Invitational Main Event QF in Matches

I guess by playing in "competitive" you have gained a deeper understanding of what upper pro level is about? Like you can probably gain unique insight into NBA playoffs by practicing in your backyard?
I guess you've never played dynamic FPS's competitively?

That was shitty and reactive of me. Sorry.

Misfits vs. LH – IEM Gyeonggi Invitational Main Event QF in Matches

The game has until now always been about individual mechanical skill. It has been determined and dominated by the invididual talent of Surefour, Tviq, Taimou, SDB, Soon, Nevix and so on. And western teams didn't have any real struggle with the korean teams. Until now they won every asian tourney they participated in. And NRG and Reunited were and are still in a huge slump.

What is every player at a certain level able to do - is to coordinate and compose the team. This is not Dota where you click one unit on a two-dimensional scree. This is fps.

Misfits vs. LH – IEM Gyeonggi Invitational Main Event QF in Matches

Best Dps'es on tanks and supports. Wasted talent, stupid metagame. The west was strong for mechanical FPS skill. Current meta is anti-skill. It looks like a moba. If that's the intended direction - then what a waste.

If Nevix really is on support - I think it will be tough for Misfits. Will they have enough firepower?

Well it's hard to call the NA scene overrated now - because there is nothing to rate it over. EU scene is harvested to death.

I'm sorry but all these Korean teams have not really proved themselves against western competition. Both tournaments lost. Both finals one-sided. Although Envy and Rogue are not that dominating in the western scene.
No C9, Faze but Afreeca Freecs? I'm not really convinced that even Kingdom, Immortals, Rise and Complexity are weaker than these Korean teams with the exception of probably LH.

NiP vs. FNC – DreamHack Winter 2016 Playoffs SF in Matches

3-2 isn't a brick wall. And it wasn't some kind of a reverse sweep, where one team "figures" the other. You are putting too much stock into "meta analysis". This is not Starcraft where a battle between units is decided by the numbers in the spreadsheet. It is a game of execution. Misfits won this tournament with a Widowmaker, although it almost always felt countered from the start - especially considering D.va's buff. Roadhog's hook kills no matter the patch.

NiP vs. FNC – DreamHack Winter 2016 Playoffs SF in Matches

Why would they change it? Their composition is strong, solid, pays to their strengths. It's an FPS - you need to surprise when you can't outplay. And they definitely have the skills to outplay - they constantly show it online. I think their problem is psychological. They underperform on stage. Guess that's what they need to work with. When you lose two series in 3 months you don't look at your gameplay you look at the circumstances first.

They had 1 official game with EnVyUs which ended 3-2 in the last 3 months and they crushed Afreeca Blue (their second possible choice) two times 3-1 and 3-0 recently.

RunAway vs. KDP – OGN APEX Season 1 APEX S1 Regular Season Group D in Matches

Do you form your opinion on something other than Apex? Or were you able to find something special in his play during these two crushing defeats? (real talk :)
Because yes - you can make excuses for someone being occasionally countered but you usually do that when you have a history of this player being successful not ground to dust in 2 of his 3 official matches.

Sombra in General Discussion

So, a movement based character with only her basic weapon to do damage, a character that strips others to a basic FPS gameplay - is ruining the basic FPS gameplay?

RUS vs. KOR – World Cup 2016 Playoffs Grand Final in Matches

Well, judging from the initial maps - our team gave up before showing to the final. Guess that's what you get with popularity voting and no competitive motivation.

Temple of Anubis, Lijang tower and Hanamura in the first five maps - that's really bad. It seems our team needs to take both Dorado and King's Row to have a chance.

RUS vs. FRA – World Cup 2016 Playoffs Quarterfinals in Matches

Well, I think that Germany was a really good example of what is really the most important part of the game.

If your DPS's aren't on par - no amount of pros, no skill level of tanks, or supports will really save you. Also Faze recently won Alienware without Zombs and lost 2-0 to H2K gaming without Shadowburn. Kinda shows.

Well Faze are 2-3 USA team atm(considering Fnatic's problems). As soon as the DPS half of the team won't have to play from EU (including SB from russia) they will probably contend for the 1 place.

NRG vs. TL – Overwatch Open North America Group Stage NA-A-USF in Matches

No, sorry that wasn't a fantastic job. Overwatch doesn't really have a wide variety of casters for now. But these guys were completely lost in the pace, didn't know what to look for. They just followed what the screen was showing at the time losing track of the kill feed, off camera ultimates. As was said earlier - the main event is a bad time to practice.

HL1 and Stopwatch return in ESL in News

How can a game be more competitive when players are forced not to choose the best heroes for certain situations? It's like you shoot all runners in the leg - to make sure the run goes slower and funnier, with no regard to the core of the competition. Sports is about comparing at your best - and this is a skill based FPS. Not a game where kids pretend to compete by controlling one little cartoonish figurine while two-button clicking a stream of AI-less mobs.
