GRTooCool

Are they not airing that anime ending theme thing? I thought I missed it yesterday.


striator

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 :|


GRTooCool

Thanks for the response. That's lame as hell but what can ya do...


dualityiseverywhere

I LOVE that glads popped off. Long time coming for those of us that have been here since s1


Ph4sor

Lol yeah, that clip Ga9a mario jumping Gator is legit funny


ReyDragons

the fate borpaSpin???


try_again123

WTF the Gaga bounce! That's why he over-extended XD


Ezraah

LMFAO GATOR


ReyDragons

despite my abysmal preds this stage, i still can get all 4 winners right at least gooooo pandas


littlemochasheep

Dallas vs Shanghai???


NiteShad0ws

custa scared


ReyDragons

soe cant pred reign again until playoffs what is she ever to do


onelegonedream

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.


ReyDragons

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


ThatCreepyBaer

How do you know Chengdu got first map pick?


onelegonedream

There is no way Atlanta picked Ilios when Hunters rolled on it all CC and they suck at Oasis


ThatCreepyBaer

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.


onelegonedream

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


ThatCreepyBaer

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.


51167289

Because Reign would be a total idiot if they picked illios into Chengdu after seeing how they performed against seoul.


happychallahdays

2 solo kills as Mercy is honestly impressive in OWL


ThatCreepyBaer

I love Yveltal Mercy.


hyperionfox

scriptwriters give us a rerun of june joust HOPIUM


blankepitaph

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)


onelegonedream

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


blankepitaph

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


ReyDragons

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)


onelegonedream

First Yveltal interview !!!


Fenixmaian7

YO anyone got that fresh hawk tweet?


Plastic-Incident

Atlanta is NYXL season 2, very good team but cant beat the best teams when it matters.


luminieria

6-0 in losers, Chengdu were not here to play


Ezraah

Now Spark can get 3rd spot pog


NiteShad0ws

glads stole shock's clutch factor chengdu stole angery shock who will win


Shikuro

alternatively, ATL are 0-6 in losers finals....


EmpoleonNorton

Remind me how Houston and Philly have done in losers finals this year...


GRTooCool

Hunters will be fine tomorrow if Leave doesn't play Sombra. If you must run Sombra, let Jinmu do it.


onelegonedream

Shhhh don't even mention the S word with Leave in the same sentence


xcleru

Sexy Leave


ThatCreepyBaer

Hell, bring Elsa out of retirement and throw him on it. Just anything to have Leave play other heroes.


Eggowithmilk

hawaii difference


Eggowithmilk

Honestly pelican still looked like the best player on their team lol it’s kinda sad.


Ezraah

jetlag + ping + tummy ache gap


Ezraah

Lateyoung has no headset he just screams into the fucking room lmao


51167289

"The PoTM goes to person who provided such a tremendous aerial support" Finally my man Yve- JINMU


occams--chainsaw

*pause*


not_vichyssoise

Yveltal will just have to settle for the interview instead of potm.


spotty15

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


marylouisestreep

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.


spotty15

Indeed. Like I said, not the reason we lost, but a shitty feel nonetheless


musticamatthew7

Jinmu gets POTM no matter what


one_love_silvia

Mmonk got it earlier today


shivawesome

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


ShinyBulk

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.


one_love_silvia

🥰😅


Shikuro

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


WhosAfraidOf_138

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.


PhoustPhoustPhoust

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.


NiteShad0ws

cries in shock 0-3 in knockouts lol


not_vichyssoise

So is leave back in for mvp consideration now?


ThatCreepyBaer

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.


Shikuro

He had a bad showing on Sombra yesterday and people overracted so hard, he reminded everyone today EXACTLY why he's a frontrunner


WhosAfraidOf_138

Arguably he had one bad EMP. Albeit it's final map and final EMP.


try_again123

The Pharah King! :D


ReyDragons

if reign played chengdu first and glads payed seoul, shock might be in playoffs already lol


NiteShad0ws

i missed the apac games was seoul as tragic vs reign as today?


Sp3ctre7

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


ReyDragons

that's assuming glads beat seoul which who knows about that it's likely but not guaranteed hence the might


Sp3ctre7

? Glads beat Chengdu who dad-dicked Seoul.


ReyDragons

overwatch is a weird game maybe day 2 seoul could beat shittier ping pelican reign lol


azngamer101

YVELTAL ROBBED


blankepitaph

Actually fuck you’re right One day the Glock will get the honours it deserves


Ezraah

Punished Yveltal A Man Without A POTM


blankepitaph

Well deserved POTM, Jinmu Pharah is mind boggling to watch


marylouisestreep

my boys 🥺


AthulK1

CAN WE STOP GIVING JINMU POTM


slugsrbad

I know a way.. but you might not like it


Reinhardtisawesom

>Makes Countdown Cup > >Wins game to knock shock out of playoffs > >refuses to elaborate > >leaves


Ezraah

blame seoul


[deleted]

Jinmu Pharah POTM, this day really could not get any better


twinpeachOW

yveltal robbed


jogging_cantaloupe

jinmu overshadowed? He’s amazing and I think people know


shankhouse

He also has been constantly getting potm this stage


DudeCripple

Atlanta Copium tonight is *looks at hand* ~~jet lag, high ping,~~ unsportsmanlike pause.


kevmeister1206

Well the Pelican thing is legitimate.


Shikuro

they got absolutely **0** map wins today, even without Pelican at his best that's just inexcusable


alienangel2

Pelican was fragging on Blizzard world too, along with Kai. Gator was the one that looked like he was on 5000 ping.


Is_J_a_Name

What a performance today. Let's get that championship.


Sp3ctre7

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


one_love_silvia

Neither were pretenders. Glad and hunters just played at a higher lvl today.


hyperionfox

sad, I thought Atlanta would at least cap second


[deleted]

We're getting the best teams in the Grand Finals, that's for sure


Qverlord37

so the truth is, Edison wasn't the problem at all, because Pelican changed nothing for the Reign.


DrKoala_

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.


Ph4sor

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


DrKoala_

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.


dg0117

But 240 ping


OWMatchThreads

Post match thread: [Atlanta Reign vs Chengdu Hunters](https://www.reddit.com/r/CompetitiveOverwatch/comments/p8lfm9/).


alienangel2

Lateyoung emotion update: actually smiled.


WhosAfraidOf_138

Question is did Leave and Jinmu smile


fish_slap_

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?


shankhouse

Pretty sure it would kill u through the gap under


EmpoleonNorton

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.


NiteShad0ws

hard to blame him there it was ot


Gogal_

He needed to be on the cart, it was overtime


DudeCripple

Sacrifice to keep OT going I think


LilRushin

not his fault, he tried to avoid it but i guess the LOS still caught him behind the cart


littlemochasheep

the monkey's paw


Gaaaaaaaaaaabs

It was overtime, no? Somebody needed to touch


BarstMain

Atlanta taking Chengdu to that map after what they just did to Seoul was bold...


sombraz

so good to see atlanta gettin rolled by chengdu feelsgoodman


tungns91

revenged


alienangel2

Was actually worth bringing ATL to Hawaii to see them getting properly crushed again.


windsor2650

Now i can sleep.


ShinyBulk

Tomorrow is going to be sooooo good


kevmeister1206

Wow can't believe a pause made Atlanta lose dozens of fights even before it happened!


[deleted]

No, clearly they lost Blizzard World just because of that pause, reddit told me so


try_again123

Woohoo, Chengdu!! We get a rematch of glads and Hunters tomorrow! It's going to be a banger!


WhosAfraidOf_138

And this time we won't ignore Kevster Tracer. Leave is going to make sure that doesn't happen again


ReyDragons

welcome to our side of the bracket, pandas :)


dg0117

Atlanta is a team that seems to have very weak mentality


ShinyBulk

Which is funny because they have the biggest ego lol


WhosAfraidOf_138

sToRyLiNe


HippocratesGymSock

Welp, hopefully Chengdu gets their first tourney win tomorrow


LilRushin

that bomb kill killed any chance for the reign


Shikuro

yup, a day of 3-0verwatch in a tournament with equal teams, totally expected


Ezraah

Leave smiled :D


arthurmillr

Did Gator just stare at the bomb?


NiteShad0ws

had to contest


DrKoala_

He had no choice. Someone had to stay on point since it was overtime.


arthurmillr

Couldn’t he roll to the other side of the cart to hide or is it impossible?


DrKoala_

Impossible. He was on ball. His hit box can’t hide in that payload from the bombs line of sight.


arthurmillr

Unfortunate


omelettefoot

LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOO WE GET THE REMATCH


Khran1086

NO TOUCH


[deleted]

Yeah Kai, your face is understandable lmao


mysidian_rabbit

That was crazy.


onelegonedream

So pumped for tomorrow now.


[deleted]

[удалено]


PortalGunFun

ah yes the reason Atlanta lost the series is one team fight


onelegonedream

Yep, that was def why they won.


ThatCreepyBaer

If you think Atlanta was going to reverse sweep that you're delusional.


Fenixmaian7

HA he really thought they were gonna win this. LUL he deleted it too


anonthedude

A day of 3-0 Overwatch.


fish_slap_

Why the fuck did gator do that


jogging_cantaloupe

gg


theLegACy99

~~Gator~~ Hawk tweet incoming?


clankgod

What did gator tweet that made people mad wasn’t hawk the one crying on Twitter not gator???


theLegACy99

Yeah, my bad, sorry. Mixed up the animals.


Mind_Mischief13

I mean this time i won’t fault him. Pelican wasn’t there so that really sucks for them


jogging_cantaloupe

hawk


Fenixmaian7

time to read 200 words


theLegACy99

Whoops sorry.


Mind_Mischief13

Damn gg


distortedtheory

Atlanta would have won that if they kept 3 on cart. Unbelievable throw.


spotty15

Cant have 3 on cart if they're dead...


distortedtheory

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.


jonasinv

gator carried but then he stood infront of a bomb?


ThatCreepyBaer

Damn man what an absolute trouncing Chengdu has given Seoul and Atlanta today.


Mystletaynn

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


WhosAfraidOf_138

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


cdean5623

Oof gg


AllHandsMiniBrute

lmao gator realizing "oh i got nowhere to go"


ReyDragons

onelegonedream

3-Overwatch today sadly


isnotav

Wait, why did Iris dropped lamp there?


[deleted]

Leave just...so effortlessly murders. I know that's a dumb thing to say but he just does.


jonasinv

why was that drone used?


try_again123

Poor Iris, he can't heal fast enough.


onelegonedream

Okay Leave is fucking now on Hanzo


Sp3ctre7

"Do Ducks fly?" "'DO DUCKS FLY?'!?!" "Sorry, I was thinking of chickens" We don't deserve Bren and Sideshow


51167289

Yveltal: Oh yeah time for round 2 glock Monk: **HELP ME, HELP ME.**


one_love_silvia

"DO DUCKS FLY"?!?


dg0117

Asking the real question here, do ducks fly


JesusAcHe

Oh Josh has today's brain cell, good to know.


try_again123

LOL, BrenShow always have these moments :)


LSApologist

Someone fill me in since it's 1 am and my brain no good, what's Philly pause?


Ph4sor

Philly paused at least twice when Chengdu have the momentum against them, resulting in them able to roll back Chengdu every single time


MirrorkatFeces

Philly has had multiple pauses near the end of rounds, people always complain about it


LSApologist

Was hoping it'd be spicier than that ngl


SirBilliam3

This is not the first time Bren has asked that question


[deleted]

THE NONCHALANT ROCKET AT A BARRAGING PELICAN


HippocratesGymSock

Everytime Yveltal pulls out the glock i get scared


my_head_hurts_

chickens can fly.


spotty15

But do ducks fly tho?


alphabet_order_bot

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.
