    World Cup 2017

    So despite my efforts to lower NZ's average rating single handed we just squeaked into the world cup with a number 30 position.

    Voting is on to select NZ's committee, which then picks the team, the committee will be made up from 3 peps from the below list
    Name:  NZ Region.jpg
Views: 182
Size:  80.6 KB

    Voting will finish at midnight, Thursday 4 May for us.

    Anyone know any of the players in the list? any GP'ers to vote for? and if anyone has links to any streams from these people that would be awesome, because my google-fu skills failed me and i could find nothing

    This seems like a strange system.

    Yeah its a bit of a weird system. I'm guessing they want to avoid last years shambles of all the teams either being pro's or streamers, could be aiming for more high ranked amateurs this time. (I would definitely watch those matches)

    Picking a batch of popular players to represent a country would be an unmitigated disaster. Can you imagine all the egos in one room being told to work together?

    Think that is what happened last year? Don't know if it was a disaster or not. Do know that a lot of the streamers were just picked because of popularity rather than skill though.

    I watched the Aus team last year lead by Muselk, and damn was it just straight up embarrassing. I mean i know there were teams like Sweden that were so stacked it was ridiculous, but it was so cringeworthy it was almost uncomfortable to watch

    League of Legends does this and it's great. Big egos working together on a team is something every professional team of any sport/esport has to deal with.

    Why are you going around posting completely worthless responses to threads? It seems like you're trying to get BST access by spamming the forum.

    After watching the games our team didn't get destroyed because we didn't have one, we had a bunch of (skilled) solo queuers

    I want every single player in the NZ overwatch team to retire. Especially legabril, he is the most garbage tank/player ive ever seen in Overwatch. How did this troll get in the team? Holy shit I dont even tank and I can do better than anything he has done so far.
