The games were still competitive, though. As they noted in the post-game, there’s a gap between SKT and the rest of the world, but G2 showed it’s at least bridgeable. At a few points in each loss, it could have easily gone G2's way.
Updated! Sometimes you’re thinking the right thing but type the wrong one.
In the case of a tie, the player with more “away” goals wins (which was almost the case in the game above). But overall score still wins, and if both aggregate score and “away” score are tied, the match goes to a sudden death on the second game’s system, where first goal takes it.
I feel the same. As I said above, I’d love to be proven wrong, and there’s a passionate grassroots scene for 2K. But this league already feels like putting the cart in front of the horse.
There’s no shame here, I looked up my dollar-spent count the other day and it was both horrifying and somehow the lowest amount out of my Discord group’s.
This is a very good point, especially for TOs. When tournaments already run the span of multiple days and pools keep getting bigger, that delay starts to really add up.
In certain situations in the past, coaches like Crunch have sat beside players and given advice mid-set.
It also apparently stuns like his proper ultimate does, so get ready for some Aghs/Bloodstone/Refresher Warlock matches.
The really cool thing (I think) is that while it’s promoted and programmed like wrestling, the computer plays out the matches—there’s no method of “forcing” a win or loss without direct human interference. From what I’ve read into, a lot of the storylines end up being written on the fly.
The spectator issue, especially for a layperson, is something that games like Dota 2 tend to struggle with, for sure. It can get difficult to discern if you don’t know what to look for. Some moments are bigger than others (it’s really obvious when Enigma lands a huge Black Hole, for example).
Talance, I want you to know I’m on this. I’ll report back from the trenches of internet Brady fandom.
Reminder that this happened in 1996 and is Brady canon:
Per Capcom’s blog:
I asked a lot of pros, both for the piece and candidly, about the possibility of a new Smash. It seems like they would all still toe the water and feel out if the new one was competitively viable, but consensus was that if a Smash 4 Deluxe (for example) came to Switch, most would jump over.
Rocket League is cross platform, as is Street Fighter. So there’s still a few out there where it works and the input discrepancy isn’t as significant.
Each regional has a separate Xbox One and PlayStation 4 bracket, and then for the grand final, the winner of each individual console tourney plays each other in two games on “home” and “away” consoles, with an aggregate score deciding the winner.
Bojack Horseman is my pick, but I also really dug Legend of Korra.
It does happen at sports events, but granted, those are often of cheering fans, or it’s a segment like kiss cam. Like I mentioned above, some of the shots like the french fry bit and the tongue-piercing are what steer it into strange territory.
My first take was that it was a good idea handled terribly, as random singled-out crowd shots of women with (seemingly) no consent doesn’t look great, especially with some of the clips they included. (Really, with the slo-mo french fry?)
Oh, I’m counting The International they’re about to win.
(But yes it was only four... for now...)
