HCS Pro League Fall 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

Are there any other eSports where 80+% of the pro players disagree with fundamental aspects of the settings?

COD pros are forced to play with jetpacks and specialists.

LoL gets balance patches that dramatically change the meta right before big tournaments.

CSGO has been viewed as a competitively neutered successor to CS across the board, especially in regards to movement and shooting. Also, the R8 debacle. Patches in the last couple of months have been well received though.

SC2 isn't relevant anymore but it was always a joke compared to Brood War.

 

DOTA 2 is the only big game I can think of where the devs and pros/competitive community seem to be on the same page, although I'm pretty sure that hasn't always been the case. EDIT - Too soon to tell, but Gears 4 seems promising.

 

Disclaimer: I only follow these scenes on a surface level so I might be completely full of shit

EG: Another example of how stats don't matter and Halo IQ is REALLY FUCKING IMPORTANT. Not  blaming Stellur for loss, but VicX being on the team helped everybody play better. 

 

Vic X For President

Tons of players playing H1Z1, Gears, having full time jobs, or doing other things. T2 -  "Gotta wonder if playing that H1Z1 so much and making more money that way made Ninja play poorly and lose EG that game".(paraphrased) lmao gimme a break T2.

 

Jessica Goch is upset about the stream bringing up Ninja playing H1z1

Well Ninja is her boyfriend and it was inappropriate so...

SC2 literally just got dropped by KeSPA across the board.

 

Brood War is being revived thanks to Afreeca.

While streaming is Ninja profession, do any other players get called out for working jobs by chance?

 

I understand he didn't have the best series but it's absolute crap to talk down to him for making a living.

 

EG had issues for awhile as a team, this isn't anything new. Hope they can bounce back this season.

People sure liked using royboxs jobs as an out for their performance before.

Lol at people who think Ninja still cares about halo. I'm sure he enjoys the halo competition but the dude made 61k in a day, his views are going up, and his sub count is growing every week playing H1Z1. Can't blame him for focusing on H1Z1 when it is more beneficial to him.

The only problem that could arise from streaming H1Z1 all the time is when EG wants to practice, but Ninja is instead streaming H1Z1. Which I'm not sure if that ever even happens. I don't follow anything to know..

I thought most pros, coaches, and ams have some kind of job or school commitment?  Not everyone won life-changing money at worlds.

I think only 3 pros work full time jobs (Roy, Lunchbox, and VictoryX), though I may be mistaken there.

I imagine they do but the implication was why would ninja care about competing in halo to the best of his ability (putting in all the time etc) if he makes the kind of money he does streaming h1z1/other games. It wasn't ninja is distracted by h1z1.

 

thats how i took t2s comment anyway
