Push The Point #117: This Weeks News and Play-In Preview
We're covering a particularly busy news week in the OWL and OW world along with a preview of this week's play-in tourney....
We kick off the episode with some brief follow-up on the Activision Blizzard lawsuit as a month passes without leadership response to employee demands. We talk about the response from ABK recruiters attempting to redirect the conversation and the long term prospects for ABK workers as the movement still awaits a legimate response from the company.
Next, we recap this week’s Countdown Cup tournament games as the Chengdu Hunters, Seoul Dynasty, Los Angeles Gladiators, and Atlanta Reign battle to win the regular season’s final tournament. We highlight major moments and player performances from each match as the league’s best player fight for tournament wins and league points, and talk about the strategies and plays that decided each match. We wrap up with a brief preview of the play-in tournament coming in 2 weeks and make our initial predictions for which teams will make the final group.
