: What do you guys think your biggest asset is as a team, what I mean is - which part of your game is the strongest - Meta play? Mechanics? Laning? etc? How do you plan to leverage this to beat your competition? Also Raid, do you curl your hair? It's amazing.

Because we only formed as this 5 man roster around a month ago, we're still gelling together as a team, but i'll do my best to answer your question. From an individual level, everyone matches up very well even against the top tier of Oceania, the Tally's, Spookz's, Swiffer's of the league. I think the players, to watch out for are definitely Raid and Seb. Over the off-season Raid has transitioned from a self-sufficient ADC to a very strong laning and hyper carry ADC. The other player to watch out for is Seb, with the meta making jungler's relative strength higher, Seb's aggressive play style has been "buffed" in a sense. Pacman, Frae and Cuden, are definitely very strong players in their own right, so i'm optimistic about our chances this coming split. I think mechanically and laning the players can definitely go blow to blow with the best, it'll just be up to myself and Sype Nav (assistant coach and analyst), to mould the team to cohesively work together as a unit and develop their macro play.

I don't really go for teams, more so players. I generally watch competitive league to learn about the game, but that being said: NA: TSM KR: KT
Staldy (OCE)
: Have you heard about the up and coming gold top laner Staldy?! Kappa But seriously, how do you as a team talk about and put into practice, taking down the established teams/big dogs like Chiefs and Legacy?

Kappa But seriously, how do you as a team talk about and put into practice, taking down the established teams/big dogs like Chiefs and Legacy? As the coach, I feel it's important to get the players to understand that although Chiefs and Legacy have the history behind them, they're still fallible. They miss cs, skill shots, make bad calls, etc. We're not necessarily focused on taking down the "big dogs", we're just more focused on ourselves, and our improvements as players and a team.
: Is claire as good as hes hyped to be? and can Frae handle him?

Claire is definitely a very strong mid laner and one of the best mechanical players Oceania has to offer, there's a reason why he's hyped. It's really going to come down to how he performs at lan however, but Claire definitely has the potential to dethrone Swiffer as oce's best mid laner. I have the utmost faith in Frae that he will match up fine against Claire, you won't have to wait long to find out though, we play Legacy week 2!
: @general how did you get your IGN? Secondly why should I watch Abyss in OPL over watching other teams in other leagues?

Secondly why should I watch Abyss in OPL over watching other teams in other leagues? My ign before i joined a team was 5YearOldGeneral, which i made when i played tf2, when i was 13 - 14. I made my name 5YearOldGeneral, because when i'd talk on the mic and attempt to strategise, people would insult me because of my high pitch voice, and sarcastically joke that i was a "5 year old general". I thought the insult was funny so i changed my steam ID to that, and later my league of legends log in. When i had to make my tournament realm ID for AlterEgo, i just shortened it down to General. As to why you should watch Abyss over other teams? If you like a good underdog story, we're perfect. Abyss is one of the only teams in the OPL to have promoted from OOL -> OCS -> OPL. We're comprised of 3/5ths of relegated players (Pacman, Seb and Frae), and no one really expects much from us this split. So if you want to watch an up and coming organisation and players attempt to break their way through the storied organisations and teams (LGC, CHF, DW), watch abyss! In regard to watching the OPL over say LCS, we're a growing scene that needs the support of local viewers like yourself in order to become a premiere league and make a run at worlds.

: For the whole team, what are the key differences between an OPL team and OCS/OOL teams? other than pure skill.

I'm assuming your question is regarding the differences in macro play between an amateur team (OOL and OCS) compared to a professional team (OPL). In my opinion, it's multi-faceted but the key differences are - OPL teams have better communication and higher game knowledge than amateur teams. Communication: Amateur teams often have scattered and imprecise communication, essentially this means that less information is shared throughout the team, whilst simultaneously using up more "air time." This usually causes teams to struggle in regard to building game plans (the most optimal way to play the game at that time). Game knowledge: This is a pretty broad subject but this usually just comes down to experience. Typically, professional players have been playing competitive league of legends for years and such can recognise the optimal way to play through their many games of experience. This difference in experience usually shows through in the mid - late stages of the game, on a side note: this is way (at least in my opinion) why many western teams do fairly well in the early game stages of the game against Korean teams, but in the mid - late, Korea's superior macro play starts to show through.
: Chogath Top Thoughts?
Cho'gath top's viability is only diminished by his strength in the jungle. IMO right up there with gangplank and nasus jungle.
