My favs:

NA- GFE

Europe - Fnatic

Korea - MVP Black

 

Ill be happy with any one of those. 

MVP Black may face an uphill battle to win this one, since they are not even a part of the tourney ;)

      Deathwing will be nerfed in a future balance patch. We're looking at more general nerfs across the board, mainly to Destroyer form, overall talent tuning, and some World Breaker buffs.

      Hey Calcaz!
      We get enough data, even with a massive ban rate. Of course, as more data comes in we’re more confident with where things sit, but we have always had enough data to make educated changes before the first balance patch after a new hero release. After the first balance patch, we always have an even more clear picture of where things stand since we have that much more time for data to come in.
      Balance patch is looking good!
      For Deathwing, more general nerfs across the board, particularly to Destroyer form. Also some World Breaker buffs and talent tuning.
      Can’t confirm dates. Confirming dates is the path to the dark side.
