Bombers are the OPL eSports premiers


#523

Awesome. Thanks for the heads up. A good insight. Never read up on Korean gaming houses.


#524

Use of the bombers facilities is a major win. They are awesome.


#525

2 games Friday, which the Bombers won reasonably easy. Make one mistake against them, and its pretty well lights out. All in pretty good form. Another today. Mammoth I think.

BMR vs GRV | Week 10 Day 1 Game 5 | OPL 2019 Split 1

Yep today’s game at 4pm is the last for this split.

Assuming we win the game today we finish on top of the ladder, which means:

We will represent Oceania in Rift Rivals (along with the other top 3 teams) in a round robin tournament usually against like Vietnam or Japan or two teams!

We will be placed in to the OPL split 1 grand final (or into the semi final if we end up in 2nd). And if we win that in April? Then we will go into an international tourney. Keen for that.


#527

They got the win pretty comfortably.

End this part of the competition top of the table.

Pretty exciting times ahead for this team if they can hold it together.


#528

So they’re not doing playoffs?


#529

Yep, we are in the Grand Final. Whatever that means. I think it is a best of 5.


#530

Yep the top 5 teams go into a gauntlet now.

So 4th and 5th play, the winner plays the team who was in 3rd, the winner of that plays the team who was in 2nd, then the winner of that plays us!

There’s a bar in the city called ggez that play esports on TV, went there today to watch today’s game, no crowd but it was nice!


#531

Oh really? Where is it


#532

Played very efficiently. Awesome stuff. One mistake is punished mercilessly. Gratz to the boys on making top position for the gauntlet.

Quickly finding this is my “goto” tv event for the weekend. It is well produced.

Near the corner of queen St and little Collins, it was pretty neat and amusing watching it at a bar.

Edit: and agreed BrettS, the production values are really great, I’m struggling with how internet memey the humour is, but I also realise I’m a few years past their main audience so it’s alright I guess.

#535

#541

hoooo boy. Order beat The Chiefs 3-0.

meaning we get to play against Order next week instead… Noice


#542

Man did they get walloped. Was a major surprise. 3-0. Wasn’t even close. Order was all the big 5 man battles. Prefer to play order though than Chiefs. Should be fun.
