The MRO Overwatch: Open - Project Eversio vs EvH Match Recap

To provide additional coverage of The MRO Overwatch: Open, we will be releasing a recap of the most interesting matches we will be having! 

For the very first featured game, we will be looking at Project Eversio vs EvH. Although both rosters have undergone some changes since the last AOC MCS: Masters Overwatch Tournament, the match between the third and second place team respectively was one we were greatly looking forward to. Unfortunately, like most of the games that day, it turned out to be a rather one sided affair. 

Project Eversio had previously swept Entropy with a quick 2-0, and surprisingly enough they were able to repeat this versus EvH. On the first map, Dorado, EvH's offense proved to be unable to break through, especially the supports of Project Eversio. A plethora of heroes was used on the side of EvH (D.VA, Widowmaker and Reaper were all seen, in conjunction with the regular roster of Reinhardt, Soldier 76, Lucio and Ana) and they even employed some unconventional offensive plays. However, in the end all effort was halted by Cin on Ana and Serenity on Lucio, defending the payload extremely close near the second capture point for an extended time versus Z4mbu on Reaper and Soulkilla on D.VA. Lacking the time to cap the second point, EvH had to yield the first map to Project Eversio as they easily pushed the cart throughout Dorado in the second half, with some interesting Widow versus Widow sniper battles and a Pharmercy combo being used by Project Eversio.

The second map, Numbani, turned out to be a pretty straightforward 3-1 for Project Eversio, where their standard play proved to be stronger than what EvH was able to bring. A personal highlight here was the flanking play made by Yumadrebel, where he spent a good amount of time crouched into a corner, before surprising EvH and hitting a 4 man Earthshatter. 

Regardless, while the score seems somewhat lopsided, the actual games had EvH show some real promise. Although Project Eversio will be the team to beat with an extremely strong showing on the first day, they did not seem invincible. Tune in on February 28th at 20:00 CET to see the second day of The MRO Overwatch: Open!

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
