Bit of a change up, maybe still not running tactics they'd use in real games, but alot of Shocks team seem to be playing characters they are known for?

edit - oh damn, striker with the boston spray and the X spray

edit edit - I say that and then Architect is on Mercy, fml

Uh oh..

Seems to me he wasn't aware the players weren't happy about the community countdown. He should have surveyed the teams better before they went ahead with this.

That's what you get when you do a half ass attempt at a preseason that no one really wanted this close to the actual season.

Just do an event with more fun distractions rather than try and sell this crap as scrims, lmao.

Watching seagulls stream right now, and he pretty much said it should have been mystery heros/memes from the start since no team would try their hardest and show strats.

I wonder if any team coach/whatever told them that would happen, since it seems they expected something else.

Should have let Jayne host a pick up pro pugs with hero bans like they did last time, with a laid back in person Q/A with some of the players .

Such an easy solution to this fiasco.
That would have been actually a better idea. Its something that has clearly worked in the past, but then again, it was all randoms and not team vs team.

Yeah, this definitely isn't on the players with 5 days until the actual season starts. It should have always been mystery heroes, or whatever arcade mode. Or better yet, just let us watch Trials and give the teams a final weekend off before the season starts in earnest.

Plus with hero bans it would force mixed player teams to think of new strats on the spot, and not defaulting to secret tactics that coaches wouldn't want to be revealed. It would basically be a showcase of mechanical skill and shotcalling ability.

Lol to be fair I had no idea that this existed sorry! I'm working on the true 2019 thread right now.

And I was wondering on the following.
Sorry to interrupt! But I was wondering if you guys were cool with each team having like a fan description about why that team is awesome. Sort of like what Jam did for the champs lol. But not that long. Like a paragraph or something. I'm sure every team has a fan here in ResetEra. So maybe one person can make a description for that team and I'll put it in the OP.

Sure, I'll write a paragraph up tomorrow. Is there an established format or anything you're thinking of?
Oh something like this! Maybe:
Dallas Fuel:

This team consisting of a group of players that became household names in Overwatch since beta is the most popular team in the League. This is not only because of famed streamers like xQc, Seagull and Jayne being a part of, or are still part of the organization, but the core of this team comes from the most popular and dominant Western team pre-OWL, Envyus. Envyus holds the honor of being the only Western team to win a tournament in Korea in any e-sport game ever, and have shaped the meta of Overwatch over the years due to excellent and coordinated team play. However, despite coming into the first Season with so much hype, they faltered badly due to lack of a deep coaching staff, and disruption in player ability to play on stage. Problems compounded so hard that they finished bottom 3 in the League.

With many edgy personalities, different nationalities, and washed up players, it's a wonder how this team can ever succeed #burnblue
Maybe a little bit smaller.

You don't have to color the text or anything. But basically just something about why a newcomer to the OWL should root for the team you chose.

Do you have a team in mind?

Not sure they want hero bans anywhere near leagues name tbf, even if it is just the preseason.

I feel like I'm the only one who enjoyed some of the stuff yesterday lol. Soon trolling his teammates not capping, people going for hammer kills on Torb in all his glory. That stuff was hilarious. The biggest flaw was to tease this as actual scrims when that was never going to happen, so of course the community response is warranted.

As fun as it might be, it paints the image of OW esports as a joke and helps players moving on to other sports cause toxicity and trolling are real issues in the game and even pros are doing that now, also what kind of league allows for trolling in anything sold as “scrims”? This was the chance for many new teams to go and show their play value in order to bring in more people, they could have just played on an older patch to prevent leaks idk

I’m tempted to move to Apex after that shitshow lmao, blizzard cares so little about the OW brand by letting this happens that makes OW look like a sinking ship

OW is a sinking ship and there are a laundry list of reasons to prove Blizzard cares little about the brand, but a low-viewership poorly-advertised community event nobody cares about is pretty far down the list of those reasons.

It should be, not everyone is smart enough to know this season’s real games won’t be a joke like that

Just a heads up the All-access pass does not have POV VODs
Cheers, Love! The Game Master is here! I am Lasirraste and I’m on the objective!

Thank you for getting a hold of me with your question about the new Command Center on the OWL all access pass on twitch. the extra views available will only be during live games. We will still have all the vods and replays and clips available after the match but those will be in the standard game view.

What a fucking swerve.

Dogman is EASILY a top 3 Western Zens. 3 Kungarna players in OWL now.

Atlanta is my team of choice in the Atlantic Division.
