I'm catching up on the matches last night and for the casters match I know they said there was an agreement for no 3/3 but I noticed that outside of the elimination match that on the other two (normal) maps that they completely stuck to 2/2/2 all the way through. I wonder if they had a build that forced 2/2/2 and used this as a test to see how it performed on a live stage.

I felt bad for Pine being so alone on his side every match. Usually only one or two people next to him who aren't even on his team. Do people dislike him or something?

Who won the Widow tournament? I went to bed after the semifinals.

Apropos of nothing, my personal rankings of how I root for teams:

Root For Above All: Gladiators, Justice

Root For Except Against Above Teams: Hunters, Fuel, Spark, Shock, Dragons

Ambivalent: Valiant, Charge, Eternal, Spitfire, Reign, Defiant, Dynasty*

Somehow Forgot They Existed And Had To Look At The OWL Website, Which Is A Slight Step Down From Ambivalent: Fusion

Actively Root Against: NYXL, Titans, Uprising, Mayhem

Would Root Against If They Were Good, But Just Feel Sorry For Them Now: Outlaws

*Actively Root Against If Fissure is Playing: Dynasty

Nah, they said it was because they just wanted to play dps, and that's what they practiced, and also what roles they play in ranked. That and because last year they went goats.

The reason the talent takedown was so fun was because of how they got to actually play DPS characters and that made the game more exciting. Blizzard better announce some sort of changes tonight or relatively soon because the audience is going to slowly disappear if they aren't careful.

Ugh, I've been fairly accepting of Goats in these two stages but I really hope we don't have another stage of it at this point, that is just excessive. Heres hoping some big nerfs or changes are on the way.
Yeah, I think the meta is due for some changes. After two stages of goats and goats variants, I think it's pretty clear which teams are good at it and which ones aren't. SF and Titans are at the top by a fair margin, NYXL is probably the only team that can meaningfully challenge them, and then there's everyone else who are likely unable to close the gap within the span of a stage. Most of the games by bad goats teams are just horrible to watch, and while the Chinese DPS comps are fun, they aren't that competitive.

I do like seeing good goats vs good goats, but we've already seen plenty of that from SF and Titans. It would be nice to see a change.

Good Goats vs Good Goats is good 1 time, but the 2nd it's literally the same thing as before just flipped or repeated. And then anything else regarding Goats, mediocre or bad is just frustrating and predictable.

Most of it is like that, but I think it's entertaining when there are moments like SF winning the last fight despite ult disadvantage, or some teams pushing King's Row or Gibraltar nearly to completion during the overtime round.

I don't like it enough to want goats to continue, though. I've seen enough finals between SF and Titans.

I agree that it's frustratingly predictable, and even the casting has become very one-note because there are only so many ways you can hype up the same exchanges over and over.

Here comes the rein battle, then someone gravs... Then someone trances to cover the grav. Then someone throws a dva bomb combo, then Lucio boops, then Rein has to air block properly, and if someone happens to die to the bomb then that's a team fight loss and one team resets to try all over again.
