Sixteen teams from across the globe have entered into the deep belly of esports mecca South Korea. Bulldog Turner Jersey . Only one will emerge victorious. From October through December, these teams will slug it out OGNs Overwatch APEX Season 1 for a ?200,000,000 prize pool (roughly $178,000 U.S.) and international glory in this nascent esport.The tournaments first day featured the start of group play with a match each from Group A and Group B. The four groups will play a six-week round robin to determine which eight teams will advance to the bracket stage.In the first match, it was apparent that South Korean teams Flash Lux and Rhinos Gaming Titan are like night and day in their approach to the maps. Where Flash Lux prefers to hit fast and hard with unique hero picks like Mei, RG Titan approaches with slow, steady, and methodical play. RG Titans Yoo Elysium Ji Hwan and Byeoung Munchkin Sang Beum worked in sync for most games, leading to quad kills for Munchkins Reaper and McCree, only made possible by Elysiums suburb Zarya setup with well-timed Graviton Surges.Despite their teamwork, Flash Luxs hero flexible hero pool adapted well, the team always picking the right hero to dismantle RG Titans lineup at every point of the map. Youd either see Mei zoning out key heroes with Blizzard, or a well-executed backline dives with a Reaper or Genji. Flash Lux closed out the series 3-2.The second match of the day featured South Korean teams BK Stars and Team Kongdoo Uncia. Both teams, while equally aggressive, place their priorities differently in their carries. The current meta favors a strong Zarya and Reaper combo, which is potent when executed properly, but BK Star had a different tale to tell with its dominant Tracer play. In every single game played, Tracer was supported by the entire team, even receiving Nano Boosts from Ana demonstrating the players all-for-one mindset. It paid off beautifully for BK with a 3-2 win.There were many questions going into this event about the skill of these newly formed teams, but if these matches were any indication, its going to be a tough, exciting and close tournament for the next few months. The next match takes place on Monday, October 10th at 7 PM KST, and will have the first of the Western squads, the invited team REUNITED, battling it out in Group D against Runaway. The other match will feature Group Cs CONBOX T6 against Mighty Storm. Gary Fencik Jersey .ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche. Custom Bears Jersey China . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. http:///...sey-large-1906t.html . William Carrier opened the scoring for Cape Breton (6-4-2), but Andrew Ryan tied the game and Brent Andrews put the Mooseheads (8-6-0) in front for good with a short-handed goal at 13:49 of the second period. CHAPECO, Brazil -- On a rainy Saturday that only accentuated the grief, 20,000 people filled a tiny stadium under umbrellas and plastic ponchos to say goodbye to members of the Chapecoense soccer club who died in a plane crash.The accident Monday in the Colombian Andes claimed most of the teams players and staff as it headed to the finals of one of Latin Americas most important club tournaments. Seventy-one of the 77 people on board died, including 19 players on the team.Rain-soaked mourners jammed the modest stadium with four or five times that many outside to pay homage to a modest club that nearly reached the pinnacle of Latin American soccer. In total, about half the population of the southern Brazilian city of 210,000 gathered.Thousands also lined the roads as the coffins were driven in a procession from the airport to the stadium memorial.Ive been here since early morning, said 19-year-old Chaiane Lorenzetti, who said she worked at a local supermarket frequented by club players and officials. Ill never see some of my clients again. Its a devastating day that will last forever.Soldiers wearing berets carried the coffins into the stadium on their shoulders, sloshing through standing water and mud on a field filled with funeral wreaths, club and national flags, and other tributes.A tent, with the coffins placed underneath, stretched across the width of the soccer field. On top of the white tent, a sentence from the clubs anthem was written for all to read.In happiness and in the most difficult hours, it said. You are always a winner.Family members and friends wept under the tents. Many hunched over the coffins with photos of the deceased placed on top or alongside as almost everything got splattered by the non-stop rain.Brazilian President Michel Temer, who had not planned to visit the stadium for fear of being jeered, showed up after greeting the arrival of the bodies at the airport. He was treated respectfully and was joined by Gianni Infantino, the head of FIFA -- the world governing body of soccer.This is a time for pain and suffering, not for talking, Infantino said. No words can diminish the suffering.Marco Polo Del Nero, the head of the Brazilian Football Confederation, was mildly applauded but also had insults shouted his way.Del Nero has been indicted by U.S. officials on corruption charges, although he has not been extradited.You only came here because its inside Brazil, one fan shouted, referring to the fact that Del Nero is likely to be arrested on a warrant if he leaves Brazil.Del Neros predecessor, Jose Maria Marin, is under house arrest in the United States awaiting a trial.He was among top soccer officials arrested 18 months in raids in Switzerland.The loudest applause was probably for Brazils new national team coach Adenor Leonardo Bacchi -- known universally as Tite (pronounced Chi-Chi). He has led Brazil to six straight victories since taking ovver, quickly becoming a national hero. Roger LeClerc Jersey. Ivan Tozzo, the acting president of the club, told fans the club would continue on, and reminded them that it was here on this field where this club fought the good fight.This team taught us that everything is possible, he added, recalling the team rose in less than a decade from the depths of Brazilian club soccer to the final of the No. 2 tournament on the soccer-crazed continent.In closing he added, We are all Chapecoense.Chapeco Mayor Luciano Buligon, like several speakers, praised the aid Colombia provided -- along with the club Atletico Nactional, the team Chapecoense was to play in the two-game final.Atletico Nacional summed it all up on its website, the mayor said. Atletico said Chapecoense came to Medellin with a dream, and it leaves a legend. Legends dont die.The stadium memorial came after a heart-wrenching week for residents and family members stunned by the crash.Hundreds of banners, flags and handwritten messages hung around the stadium -- in Portuguese, Spanish and English.One sign in Spanish was aimed at Colombian officials who helped with the rescue. Six people survived, including three players.Colombia, Thanks For Everything it read.They deserve a farewell of champions, said Tatiana Bruno, who stood inside the stadium in the rain, wearing a plastic poncho to stay dry.It wasnt clear exactly how many coffins were brought into the stadium, though television reports put a rough count at 50. Most of the people who died, including the 19 players, were not from Chapeco and were to be buried elsewhere.The rain let up at the end of the two-hour memorial, lifting some of the gloom. It also allowed family members and friends to circle the field, many with photos raised high of the deceased.Ahead of the memorial, the bodies arrived in Chapeco on overnight flights from Colombia.The caskets were received by soldiers waiting in formation on the tarmac. Under heavy rain, they removed one at a time, wheeling them through standing puddles to vehicles to transport them to the stadium.Staff at the Jardim do Eden cemetery, where some victims will be buried, said on Friday they were used to the business of death, but not a tragedy of this size.We bury two people every day. Ive done this job for a long time, but this is different, said Dirceu Correa, caretaker of the cemetery. It is a tragedy for the families, for the club, and also for us because we are a part of the city.---Savarese reported from Chapeco, and Wade from Rio de Janeiro.---Mauricio Savarese on Twitter: http://twitter.com/MSavarese .His work can be found at http://bigstory.ap.org/journalist/mauricio-savareseStephen Wade on Twitter: http://twitter.com/StephenWade .
