The MRO Overwatch: Open - EvH vs New_Kings Match Recap

In another night of 3-0 series (which should be the last one, considering that we are getting deeper and deeper into the brackets), there was one map that everyone interested in the MRO Overwatch: Open should watch: EvH vs. New_Kings, on Hollywood. 

Going into this game, it seemed like it should have been a relatively quick walkover for EvH . They had performed better throughout the group stages and had all around better individual players. However, they were as surprised as we were when New_Kings completely disregarded the fact that they shouldn't perform optimally against EvH , and blew through the initial line of defense with a heavy snowball focused approach, make one or two key picks before piling on top of the leftover scrambling squad from EvH. Keeping the pressure up all the way to a short 20 meters shy of the last point, they showcased, most of all, the potential this team has if they up their individual game a little bit and keep playing together. The way that New_Kings moved as a cohesive unit, striking as one at the most opportune of times showed a team synergy that we hadn't seen as much of in The MRO Overwatch: Open up until this point.

Most teams usually revolve around supporting their playmakers (usually the DPS players, although we've seen supports and Savagebeast represent playmakers on the other end of the spectrum), but the way New_Kings was playing promises a lot going into future cups. Unfortunately, despite all this, EvH pushed to point three relatively easy and swept the other two maps. With what should be the last 3-0's of the tournament behind us, one can only look forward with great enthusiasm at the games ahead of us!

Riot Games Sued for “Striker Lucian” Skin Resemblance

Edgar Davids is a former Dutch professional footballer who played as a midfielder for many years and for many clubs. He had a unique look on the field, mainly due to his glasses, which at times were tinted orange and his dreadlocks.  For the most part, he’s been enjoying his retirement after an impressive career, but the Riot Games forced his hand to sue. Davids did so successfully. Obviously, Riot Games tried to defend themselves with an attempted “it was a complete coincidence” tone, but their own history got the better of them. If we wind the clock back to 2014, a Riot employee tweeted these exact words: “For all you wondering, Striker Lucian was inspired by soccer pro Edgar Davids.” Somebody’s getting fired. At the time, Edgar Davids was quite grateful for the inclusion into the game but he was unaware of the immense size of LoL. Therefore, he’s chosen to strike now for compensation.  Below is an extract from the court’s statement. "The player's marketable popularity is enough reason for the former player to fight the use of his portrait. The player's interests outweigh the commercial interests of the game to offer the Striker Lucian skin and no reasonable compensation has been offered to the player. Riot Games therefore owe the player a compensation fee.” The game developer must pay every penny ever made from using his image. Of course, the player’s claim is extremely valid and we’re pretty sure you can see the utter resemblance yourself. Even the use of “striker” closes the gap to the football field. League of Legends will probably take this to heart for future skins.

Are FaZe going to sign Olofmeister from Fnatic?

Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer Gustafsson is, reportedly, about to finalise a deal which entails his movement to Faze and thus, his departure from Fnatic. The announcement was taken from Flickshot.fr’s recent post and will probably finalise Faze’s CS:GO roster for the time being. The Swedish player has been on Fnatic for three years, playing as a rifler and secondary AWPer, with some time out do to an unfortunate wrist injury. Nonetheless, he’s been a very effective player for the organisation winning a total of 8 events with a 2nd and 3rd to 4th finish too. Known by the community as “Boostmeister” or “Tec9mester” due to his notorious Tec9 shot, he was one of the best players of 2015. In fact, he was named the greatest player of that year by HLTV.org. We don’t know why exactly the 25-year-old will be leaving or who’ll be replacing him, we just know where his new home will most likely be; Faze. Alongside “GuardiaN” from Na’Vi, “olofmesiter” is part of a fresh Faze roster who will definitely prove their potential in upcoming events. Below is the roster with “olofmeister”, who will be replacing “kioShiMa”. Håvard "rain" Nygaard          Finn "karrigan" Andersen Nikola "NiKo" Kovač Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström (coach) Looking at the new additions, this team looks to be fierce. Hopefully, the changes haven’t been for nothing, but we’ll have to wait for another event to really find out for sure. Photo courtesy of HTLV.org
