- ALGS Winter Circuit OT#4 Pick Rates
I love that Bang was played lol. Surprising how quick NA has given up on Wraithless comps. I didn’t think they were very good but it was still an interesting experimentID: gq8sx2s
She had a 100% win rate in NA.
Anyone else excited to see caustic fall to the bottom (or hopefully off) of this list?ID: gq8ph1f
If he gets replaced by Bangalore or if we end up in a full bloog gibby wraith meta, not really no lol.
I think this OT had some very good pick rates imo. Don't mind 2 Caustics, I actually welcome them. Now hopefully we'll get some pathfinders as well and some wraith+horizon comps.ID: gq8k3u7
It'd be nice if they kept tuning him, but I wouldn't be upset if they just removed him from the game. Similar to on-release Brigitte in overwatch lolID: gq8o3r5
Yes he’s bad for viewership period
Another OT in the books and the last one on the Season 8 patch. The LCQ and Playoffs will be played on the Chaos Theory patch dropping tomorrow.
Gibraltar and Bloodhound both hit all-time highs here with the Wraith-Gibraltar-Bloodhound comp making up over half of all played compositions. Bloodhound jumped quite a bit (their previous highs in-region and combined were all in the 50s) while Gibraltar grabbed a few more picks, enough to surpass his previous high of 81.8% total set at the Autumn Circuit Playoffs.
The spread of compositions was very concentrated with Wraith-Gibraltar-Bloodhound squads. You have to go back to Summer Circuit OT1 to find a composition that was chosen more in EU and in total across both regions (Wraith-Wattson-Pathfinder in both cases). As for NA, 45.8% of the lobby being Wraith-Gibby-Hound is high as well, though surpassed more recently at the Autumn Circuit Playoffs (by the same comp).
Caustic is curiously still a common pick in NA while he's back to niche levels in EU. In the past EU has always been the Caustic region between them.
Crypto below 20% overall is his lowest mark of the Winter Circuit.
NA has completely reverted to Wraith and abandoned Horizon. Horizon slipped in EU versus WCOT3 but still got some niche representation.
This is the first time a Legend other than Wraith or Wattson has finished as the most-picked within a region.
Team Liquid Flanker's Bangalore pick for Game 6 was the first Bangalore pick in NA in a major finals.
Winning compositions were Wraith-Gibraltar-Bloodhound in both regions (KSZ in NA and Gambit in EU)
I was just thinking about how I hadn’t seen any Horizons in NA. I’m not surprised her pick rate dropped, but I have no idea why it plummeted to 0.ID: gq8pshd
She has no business replacing Wraith and that's how most ppl were using her :/
Caustic basically a niche choice even before the big nerf.
Even though they changed midtourney, wouldn't be surprised if New kept using him tbh. Not sure who is the other team using him in EU but the same goes for them.
What changed form last OT that Horizon fell?ID: gq8pfm1
Wraith teams just ended up doing better than Horizon teams and Wraith portal is just too good for positioning.
That EU Bangalore is all Shiv lol
EU pick rate is mental. Gibby being number 1 and Caustic having only 10 picks even before the nerf is very interesting
