Push The Point #35: Apex, the West, and The Rest

November 19th, 2019

We begin by recapping all of this week’s major roster moves, including player signings, trades, and releases. As teams begin to finalize their rosters, player moves are at a fever pitch. We also cover the continuing Houston Outlaws rebuild and the continuing Vancouver Titans drama.

Next, the hosts talk about certain fans’ continued call for all Western rosters amidst the mixed roster rebuilds of particular teams. The hosts talk about the concept’s continued failure when compared to top tier all Korean rosters, and the implications on the concept on the league at large. We also talk about an elite all western roster, and the hurdles preventing such a team from forming. We also discuss the prevailing rumors about possible player pickups, and discuss the implications if these “leaks” turn out to be true.

Lastly, we discuss the legacy of APEX era teams on Overwatch League in its current form. As many teams of the era separate for good, we discuss the impact of the era on today’s players and fans, and discuss the status of the era’s remaining, intact teams.
