Push The Point #124: Off-Season Week 3 (2021)
Tons of news to cover this week with the off-season rolling onwards! #OWL2021...
We start things off by looking back at the past couple weeks of news surrounding the Activision Blizzard lawsuit. In response to ABK’s recent move to settle for $18 million, the California department of Fair Employment and Housing has submitted an objection to prevent further damage and shredding of documents. We discuss the ramifications of the possible settlement, as well as the intentions of the objection, as ABK still attempts to wait out their frustrated workforce.
We move ahead to the past week of Overwatch League news. Many teams are releasing players and (occaisionally) even entire rosters into the free agent pool. We talk about the past wave of player moves, as well as some retirements from key players. With some of Overwatch’s most hallowed names moving away from the game, we discuss the transition underway as the scene moves into a new era.
We wrap up with a roster-building activity as both hosts attempt to build their dream rosters out of the pool of available free agents. We mix and match potential players from free agency and Contenders as we build our ideal Season 5 squad.
