Hopefully this shuts up the constant, non-stop, incessant whining by DPS players about tank metas.
Why do people make it seem like DPS are the only toxic players?

Brb trying to imagine bischu on dps
Or better yet, how good is Hydration or Decay on D.Va. The D.Va player would be the projectile (Pharah/Genji) player in triple DPS comps, so one of those two would have to flex onto D.Va is Bischu isn't capable on DPS.

Triple DPS comps are probably going to be comprised of flanker/hitscan/projectile, so Doomfist, Tracer or Sombra/Widow or Soldier or McCree/Pharah or Genji

Well they say hydration can flex to pretty much anything so this is going to be fun i guess

Ark broke people's hearts on Oversight. He was saying Shanghai were looking really good in scrims, but their only Main tank is in Korea, having his role be covered by non Rein/Winston players.

I forgot to post this from yesterday but

"According to Avast, Chengdu has been very adamant about not running GOATS in scrims. At all.
There's a certain player on Chengdu known for his Hammond. Ameng. If the comp CDH is running is Ameng on Hammond, then I think he could be Hammond's Miro."

Welp. New OP looks okayish. I feel like I could do better. I'll see what else I can add.

Anyone have a good subtitle for the thread? My Symmetra one sucked and this one about B.O.B. is the truth but got no reaction from the posters here so I think it's best if one of you all get to decide haha.

You know what. It's time to throw down. No more power rankings about where the teams are right now in the here and now, let's talk what you're betting the pecking order will look like by the end of the season. I'm going to place my bets now and eat shit later bask in how right I was at the end. Want to eat shit with me place your bets? Here's a tool to do so via drag and drop.



And some specific spicy bold takes:

* Flower's pre-OWL hype becomes a meme by the end of the season, despite performing ok overall
* The meta becomes triple DPS with the third DPS slot being a flex by either the flex support or flex tank and Seagull's retirement becomes a rallying cry of disappointment for Fuel fans in what could have been scenarios
* DPS and Flex Support players start playing Hammond in lieu of a DPS, Hammond skills become 'sexy' for prospective DPS players to have. DPS are expected to regularly be able to flex onto Hog, Zarya and Hammond. Hammond gets nerfed towards the end of the Season
* Flex Tank becomes a role that requires filling on all three roles thanks to D.Va nerfs. 3rd DPS player in many scenarios but also plays a good bit of Brig and Hammond. A handful of Flex Tanks will distinguish themselves by playing 'unusual' roles for Flex Tank such as Mercy, Widowmaker, Tracer, Mei, and Symmetra. Nenne is the most distinguished Flex Tank in terms of performance. Nevix fans riot at the loss of the title
* London continues to suffer from inconsistencies and Birdring takes the brunt of the blame without wrist injuries to deflect. Team Performs well but doesn't perform like Season 1 NYXL causing castors and fans alike to remain utterly confused that the roster with the most raw talent in the League is incapable of regularly delivering on their potential. Conspiracy theories blame Birdring, team coordination, the coaches, sandbagging, Monte's porn mustache, and the permabenched players. London becomes Season 1 Philly where they can take games off anybody but fuck knows if they will that day
* The hero after Ashe will be another Orissa, Doomfist or Hammond in that they receive a largely positive reception but show little impact in the League. Pros won't use them regularly until someone in Contenders or Open Division does it for them first too safe fuck that
* Dafran and Erster are the hottest DPS rookie duo on the block and are some of the 'worst' players on their team. Atlanta goes to the playoffs

EDIT:
* Hammond becomes the most role-neutral character in the game and there's a notable undercurrent of pro players that believe that 3+ players should be able to flex to Hammond. People begin arguing about 'What characters every pro should be able to play at a pro level'. Castors start talking about the universality of the Hamster. The only constant in people that believe in this idea is Hammond. People make cases for Mei, Tracer, Widowmaker, Lucio, and Roadhog in an attempt to 'add to the conversation'.
