Venruki's Teams to Watch
Caster and esport personality Elliott “Venruki is a former World Champion and an established member of our analyst desk. Check out his to 5 teams to watch for the North America region below:

Team Name: Method Black
Roster: Snutz, Smexxin, Samiyam, Gorecki

Snutz holds the most World Championship appearances of any North American player having placed top 3 five times since 2010. Last year was the first time Snutz played in a regional final and failed to qualify for the World Championship. For a player of his caliber, this was unacceptable and resulted in him going back to the drawing board. With a hand-sculpted roster, who currently sit 1st on the NA ladder, Venruki puts this team at Number 1.

Team Name: Super Frogs
Roster: Chanimals, Wealthyman, Mageiden, Kubzy

Another all-star roster, Chanimals leads his frog army again with the addition of Mageiden for this year. Chanimals was the most recent North American representative to hold the World Championship, and he hopes adding Mageiden on the mage will free up Wealthyman in more of a multi-classing role. Utilizing his elemental shaman, they could run the Warlock-Shaman-Druid composition we saw XRB use to win Europe Cup #1.

Team Name: Bologna Ponies
Roster: Novoz, Thugonomics, Chunli, Vellido

Formerly known as Splyce, this is one of the few rosters to stick together through the off-season. This team came 5th at BlizzCon last year utilizing Vellido and Chunli’s synergy as Windwalker Monk, Death knight. This composition is still strong, and with Thugonomics bringing his patented Destruction Warlock, this is a team that should be feared.

Team Name: Method Orange
Roster: Trill, Mes, Cdew

Another strong cleave team, Trill and Mes are melee specialists. They’ve added Cdew for 2018 and hope to bank in his experience as a 3x BlizzCon competitor in return for that final acolyte all 3 of them are so hungry to achieve. As a fan favorite, these players are popular streamers and Venruki states this support can give them a home-town advantage. The roster is still hosting try-outs for a 4th to round out the squad, so watch this space!

Team Name: The Rejects
Roster: Jahmilli, Roastyz, Sethcurry, Rubcub

Every off-season has sob-stories, but you wouldn’t think this is one looking at the roster. Each of the 4 players are considered some of the best of their class, and although they haven’t ever played together this makes them a real wildcard. Jahmilli led Tempo Storm to #1 in online competition last year, and if we learned anything from BlizzCon 2017, it was to never count out Rubcub.

    ANd I personally want to see my toon one day at level 200
    It's objectively not silly. 120 levels is a lot, and if there is no reward for each and every one of them and the mobs scale up around you with each one you get, then levelling up is going to feel like a punishment; everything becomes harder, not easier.

    Just the idea of having a chance to get a Swift Spectral Tiger of Feldrake would make me buy that promo without a doubt.

    Pay money for loot-boxes with TCG goodies is just around the corner... maybe as part of maintaining recurring subs? Devious.

    Western players when they add Store mounts to Western realms: "Moneygrabbing omfg they never add unique mounts to the game anymore fuck you Blizzard!!"
    Western players when they add a promotion mount setting you up for 6 months of payment to Chinese players: "GIVE IT TO US OR RIOT!!!".

    How about equality? they get a promotion for paying 6 months we get the same treatment, we have Store mounts they get the same sstore mounts.

    Item level 1000 - Now Item Level 280
    Item level 970 - Now Item Level 250
    Item level 940 - Now Item Level 220
    Yet the picture shows iLvl 1000 being reduced to iLvl 250? Nobody noticed that?
