    Valiant don't go down quietly.

    Also KSP just 360d off the ledge on his way to the point during setup. I'm glad the pros do it too.

    I'm sure things will settle soon but it is nice seeing different team comps be used.

    omg the rarest of rare DLC heroes has appeared.

    Soldier's speed ability helps you run back to spawn to change heroes more efficiently!

    They'll settle in the next few weeks but then hero pools are happening and there's already another balance patch in the pipeline. Based on the games we've seen so far, heros to get banned based purely on play time have to be Rein, Mei, Reaper, Lucio.

    Have they said how patches will work this season? There are no stages, so there are also no clear times to move to the latest patch.

    Two weeks after patches go live, they will be implemented in OWL. That's a pretty standard timeframe for esports.

    Edit: I should clarify that this is the official procedure.

    Went to the Fuel game live with some friends, it was a lot of fun! I'm aware of the game, but my much more knowledgeable friend had to explain some of the plays to me.

    If Mei gets banned out I could see hog getting some playtime maybe.

    Could be! Pulled Pork's best counter at that level is throwing up a wall to cut off the hook.

    Due to people not being able to watch live, please spoiler OWL match specifics.

  • mightyjongyomightyjongyo Registered User regular
    Just results? or any discussion about what happens in a match?

    (just want to make sure so i can be more careful in the future)

    The person that does the balance patch comparison videos/gifs on Reddit put together a highlight reel of opening day in OWL. It's really, really good. They used composites of POV from the OWL Viewer with broadcast audio overtop.



    Edit: Noooooooo the copyright jerks got em

    spent some time replicating that GiG charge on lijiang garden, it's actually pretty tricky to pull off because you have to graze the geometry at just the right angle

    wild that it happened in game, let alone an owl match

    Vancouver had no clue what hit them.

    Is there a clip yet of the "Reddit Lucio, except good" bit? Because it was super impressive and funny.

    If you have the OWL viewer installed (through the battle.net client) you can watch it from FDGod's pov.

    Patch went live -- https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/overwatch/t/overwatch-retail-patch-notes-–-february-12-2020/458690

    pretty much exactly the same as PTR from what I can see, interesting note here is that there are console-specific changes

    Generally results, or anything that would infer knowing who won a given match.

    This is my personal request but I think the last two seasons several others agreed since they couldn't watch live either.

  • BionicPenguinBionicPenguin Registered User regular
    This is something we go through every season. The season starts and we're all really excited and forget that not everyone can watch it live. People not being able to watch live is going to be even more of a thing this year with all the homestands. It's easy to add a spoiler tag.

    I may try to go to one of the Dallas homestands this year. They're playing Houston in July. Also I think I may not hate Dallas this year? They seem to have gotten rid of most of the jerkfaces, or at least they aren't starting anymore.

    I'll just type map names in all caps

    Edit: Not even when something exciting happens. There's a reset happening and HANAMURA in the thread.
