Are they not airing that anime ending theme thing? I thought I missed it yesterday.
That animation [was sponsored by and features a lot of Coke](https://twitter.com/overwatchleague/status/1403397113354985475) so not sure when or if we'll see it again :|
Thanks for the response. That's lame as hell but what can ya do...
I LOVE that glads popped off. Long time coming for those of us that have been here since s1
Lol yeah, that clip Ga9a mario jumping Gator is legit funny
the fate borpaSpin???
WTF the Gaga bounce! That's why he over-extended XD
despite my abysmal preds this stage, i still can get all 4 winners right at least
Dallas vs Shanghai???
soe cant pred reign again until playoffs
what is she ever to do
Serious question - who gets Map pick for the Finals because I thought Reign would have it for the Losers final but Hunter's got to pick Ilios so I'm confused.
think it goes to glads for winner's advantage
hunters had it because they were higher than reign in technical seeding (+9 diff compared to +7) i do believe assuming you're right and they did have it
How do you know Chengdu got first map pick?
There is no way Atlanta picked Ilios when Hunters rolled on it all CC and they suck at Oasis
Wait I only just thought about it now but of course Chengdu got the first map pick since they came from loser's round 1 while Atlanta came from the winner's bracket.
Shouldn't the team coming from the Winners bracket get map pick? I guess maybe not since both are in the Losers bracket now and then its just map differential
I just assume it's the "losing" team that gets map pick, so the team that came from the loser's bracket gets map pick instead of the team that came from the winner's bracket. Same for the Grand Finals.
Because Reign would be a total idiot if they picked illios into Chengdu after seeing how they performed against seoul.
2 solo kills as Mercy is honestly impressive in OWL
I love Yveltal Mercy.
scriptwriters give us a rerun of june joust HOPIUM
Gonna be a great high octane series tomorrow, so stoked
The one bit of mean banter I’ll allow myself is this - shame ATL won’t get to face LAG in the final, the match thread the other day kept telling me that that matchup would be a total ez clap for them :)
(All that aside they got that playoffs lock yesterday, which is still a success tbh)
I hope it is high octane and turns into a dive mirror because I don't think Chengdu wins otherwise. The Bap/Zen backline counters the Pharmercy and Orisa comps
Dive mirrors are my favourite thing to watch in OW so I’m all for that, and even though Chengdu are the stronger team on that front I can see Glads putting up a hell of a fight.
Honestly though as long as it’s not an extended Orisa mirror I’ll be happy. I’m absolutely sick of watching Orisa/Torb/Bap turtle comps
the finals is all pride now
***story-wise*** ***for seeding*** one of the worst if not the worst outcome?
glads cannot jump chengdu in overall seeding and own tiebreaker over reign so it doesnt matter if they get demolished here (unless again, reign somehow do)
First Yveltal interview !!!
YO anyone got that fresh hawk tweet?
Atlanta is NYXL season 2, very good team but cant beat the best teams when it matters.
6-0 in losers, Chengdu were not here to play
Now Spark can get 3rd spot pog
glads stole shock's clutch factor
chengdu stole angery shock
who will win
alternatively, ATL are 0-6 in losers finals....
Remind me how Houston and Philly have done in losers finals this year...
Hunters will be fine tomorrow if Leave doesn't play Sombra. If you must run Sombra, let Jinmu do it.
Shhhh don't even mention the S word with Leave in the same sentence
Hell, bring Elsa out of retirement and throw him on it. Just anything to have Leave play other heroes.
Honestly pelican still looked like the best player on their team lol it’s kinda sad.
jetlag + ping + tummy ache gap
Lateyoung has no headset he just screams into the fucking room lmao
"The PoTM goes to person who provided such a tremendous aerial support"
Finally my man Yve-
Yveltal will just have to settle for the interview instead of potm.
The pause was bad. Not the reason we lost, but it's a shitty cherry on top of a shitty sundae.
Ggs CDH. They had all the answers
If it makes you feel any better, Chengdu had this crazy momentum against Shanghai (I think in summer showdown, game 1) and then needed a 15-minute pause before the tiebreaker map where they just got wiped. The pause giveth, the pause taketh.
Indeed. Like I said, not the reason we lost, but a shitty feel nonetheless
Jinmu gets POTM no matter what
Mmonk got it earlier today
So happy for chengdu honestly with back to back stage finals. To be thought of as a powerhouse team in 2021 compared to their previous years is such a glow up for this team
The best part is they still keep their identity as a scrappy and chaotic, yet talented, team.
They’ve been such a fun team ever since they came into the league.
It’s great to see them succeed and still maintain all the players we love (Jinmu, Yveltal, even Ameng making an incredible appearance last tournament). On top of this, they’ve added such massive difference makers to really boost the flexibility of this team.
atlanta made THREE tournaments in a row and have not gotten farther than third and have gotten 3-0d twice in the times they made 3rd place
It's okay I've waited years for Chengdu to get good and it's finally here.
Runaway needed multiple grand finals to finally win. Fuel was awful for so many season. Shanghai needed 0-42 to become the best team in OWL.
We'll get there brah.
This time I think Pelican’s extreme ping may have been the difference. It’s a real shame because I think this was their best shot yet. Hopefully they’ll regroup for the Playoffs.
cries in shock 0-3 in knockouts lol
So is leave back in for mvp consideration now?
Leave was more than "in for consideration" even before today. After today he is looking like the front runner or, at worst, just behind LIP.
He had a bad showing on Sombra yesterday and people overracted so hard, he reminded everyone today EXACTLY why he's a frontrunner
Arguably he had one bad EMP. Albeit it's final map and final EMP.
The Pharah King! :D
if reign played chengdu first and glads payed seoul, shock might be in playoffs already lol
i missed the apac games was seoul as tragic vs reign as today?
Nah, because losers match would be Atlanta and Seoul and Seoul were booty cheeks this weekend. Atlanta wins that, gets a point, shock are out
that's assuming glads beat seoul which who knows about that
it's likely but not guaranteed hence the might
? Glads beat Chengdu who dad-dicked Seoul.
overwatch is a weird game
maybe day 2 seoul could beat shittier ping pelican reign lol
Actually fuck you’re right
One day the Glock will get the honours it deserves
A Man Without A POTM
Well deserved POTM, Jinmu Pharah is mind boggling to watch
my boys 🥺
CAN WE STOP GIVING JINMU POTM
I know a way.. but you might not like it
>Makes Countdown Cup
>Wins game to knock shock out of playoffs
>refuses to elaborate
Jinmu Pharah POTM, this day really could not get any better
jinmu overshadowed? He’s amazing and I think people know
He also has been constantly getting potm this stage
Atlanta Copium tonight is *looks at hand* ~~jet lag, high ping,~~ unsportsmanlike pause.
Well the Pelican thing is legitimate.
they got absolutely **0** map wins today, even without Pelican at his best that's just inexcusable
Pelican was fragging on Blizzard world too, along with Kai. Gator was the one that looked like he was on 5000 ping.
What a performance today. Let's get that championship.
So what we learned is that Seoul was the pretender here, and it's hard to carry when you're on high ping and recovering from surgery
Neither were pretenders. Glad and hunters just played at a higher lvl today.
sad, I thought Atlanta would at least cap second
We're getting the best teams in the Grand Finals, that's for sure
so the truth is, Edison wasn't the problem at all, because Pelican changed nothing for the Reign.
I mean. We don’t know what ping Pelican was playing at. Sure he played but he was at best on 170 ping. Which can make certain things especially tracer recall more difficult.
He said he was playing at 240 ping in the first map against LA
But the CN caster said probably because he need to connect from ATL -> Tokyo -> Hawaii instead of ATL-> Tokyo -> Seoul like yesterday
Yeah. His ping was probably really bad. Made worse by playing tracer. But it the end. Chengdu did great. Atlanta secured top 3 spot so that’s good enough since they now lock in a play off spot.
But 240 ping
Post match thread: [Atlanta Reign vs Chengdu Hunters](https://www.reddit.com/r/CompetitiveOverwatch/comments/p8lfm9/).
Lateyoung emotion update: actually smiled.
Question is did Leave and Jinmu smile
Gator 3ks his team back into the map and then just suicides into a stationary self destruct?????
Edit: the bomb was on the back of the payload, not on the ground behind it. Could he have lived if he hugged the front of the payload?
Pretty sure it would kill u through the gap under
Not a lot you can do on ball there. You can't "duck" behind the cart with Hammond. He had to stay on cart or it would have been map over.
hard to blame him there it was ot
He needed to be on the cart, it was overtime
Sacrifice to keep OT going I think
not his fault, he tried to avoid it but i guess the LOS still caught him behind the cart
the monkey's paw
It was overtime, no? Somebody needed to touch
Atlanta taking Chengdu to that map after what they just did to Seoul was bold...
so good to see atlanta gettin rolled by chengdu feelsgoodman
Was actually worth bringing ATL to Hawaii to see them getting properly crushed again.
Now i can sleep.
Tomorrow is going to be sooooo good
Wow can't believe a pause made Atlanta lose dozens of fights even before it happened!
No, clearly they lost Blizzard World just because of that pause, reddit told me so
Woohoo, Chengdu!! We get a rematch of glads and Hunters tomorrow! It's going to be a banger!
And this time we won't ignore Kevster Tracer. Leave is going to make sure that doesn't happen again
welcome to our side of the bracket, pandas :)
Atlanta is a team that seems to have very weak mentality
Which is funny because they have the biggest ego lol
Welp, hopefully Chengdu gets their first tourney win tomorrow
that bomb kill killed any chance for the reign
yup, a day of 3-0verwatch in a tournament with equal teams, totally expected
Leave smiled :D
Did Gator just stare at the bomb?
had to contest
He had no choice. Someone had to stay on point since it was overtime.
Couldn’t he roll to the other side of the cart to hide or is it impossible?
Impossible. He was on ball. His hit box can’t hide in that payload from the bombs line of sight.
LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOO WE GET THE REMATCH
Yeah Kai, your face is understandable lmao
That was crazy.
So pumped for tomorrow now.
ah yes the reason Atlanta lost the series is one team fight
Yep, that was def why they won.
If you think Atlanta was going to reverse sweep that you're delusional.
HA he really thought they were gonna win this. LUL he deleted it too
A day of 3-0 Overwatch.
Why the fuck did gator do that
~~Gator~~ Hawk tweet incoming?
What did gator tweet that made people mad wasn’t hawk the one crying on Twitter not gator???
Yeah, my bad, sorry. Mixed up the animals.
I mean this time i won’t fault him. Pelican wasn’t there so that really sucks for them
time to read 200 words
Atlanta would have won that if they kept 3 on cart. Unbelievable throw.
Cant have 3 on cart if they're dead...
Actually I may have misinterpreted the situation. I dunno if they would have reached the checkpoint, I think I misread their final position as the checkpoint mark.
gator carried but then he stood infront of a bomb?
Damn man what an absolute trouncing Chengdu has given Seoul and Atlanta today.
This has been an incredibly disappointing Countdown Cup but when hero pools are gone and we get Echo Ashe Lucio and Sigma back with Pelican healthy, the league better watch out
You guys had a great tournament run. Let's rematch in the playoffs. Pelican vs. Leave on more time, this time with Pelican all healed up
lmao gator realizing "oh i got nowhere to go"
why. what is life.
birdring wasn't even be cocky yesterday, just blasting truth
Pelican and IR1s can’t do more
Pelican and Iris with heroic
yo how many times are we gonna watch Gator try to walk down the street on this slow ass robot horse
3-Overwatch today sadly
Wait, why did Iris dropped lamp there?
Leave just...so effortlessly murders. I know that's a dumb thing to say but he just does.
why was that drone used?
Poor Iris, he can't heal fast enough.
Okay Leave is fucking now on Hanzo
"Do Ducks fly?"
"'DO DUCKS FLY?'!?!"
"Sorry, I was thinking of chickens"
We don't deserve Bren and Sideshow
Yveltal: Oh yeah time for round 2 glock
Monk: **HELP ME, HELP ME.**
"DO DUCKS FLY"?!?
Asking the real question here, do ducks fly
Oh Josh has today's brain cell, good to know.
LOL, BrenShow always have these moments :)
Someone fill me in since it's 1 am and my brain no good, what's Philly pause?
Philly paused at least twice when Chengdu have the momentum against them, resulting in them able to roll back Chengdu every single time
Philly has had multiple pauses near the end of rounds, people always complain about it
Was hoping it'd be spicier than that ngl
This is not the first time Bren has asked that question
THE NONCHALANT ROCKET AT A BARRAGING PELICAN
Everytime Yveltal pulls out the glock i get scared
chickens can fly.
But do ducks fly tho?
Would you look at that, all of the words in your comment are in alphabetical order.
I have checked 176,799,870 comments, and only 42,950 of them were in alphabetical order.
Heal Leave challenge (very difficult)
what is the most defensive sided hybrid map?
