Push The Point #43: Around the World
This week, @Ramses_OW and @LoBosco talk about the final round of player announcements, discuss some more caster news, and talk about the schedule and patch formats for the 1st quarter of Season 3!...
We begin with a brief overview of the Mayhem Winter Classic Tier 2 tournament that saw some of the most exciting T2 teams in NA and EU compete for a 7.5k prize pot! We talk about the Florida Mayhem’s desire to give back to the T2 community and discuss the tournament’s standout players and results. We also discuss the recent signing of Main Support Jecse to the Houston Outlaws, and what his play and previous chemistry can bring to the team.
We also discuss the huge announcements from this week regarding some of the league’s premier broadcasting talent. We discuss Bren and Sideshow’s transition from the desk to a casting team, and what the desk might look like for Season 3. We also talk about the departure of MonteCristo and Puckett from the broadcast team to pursue outside opportunities. We discuss their individual reasons for leaving and career philosophies as they begin 2020 working outside OWL. We also discuss their impact on Overwatch and on the league, and what Blizzard will do to fill the talent gaps left in their absence.
Lastly, the hosts discuss several areas where OWL is failing to capitalize on player talent or fully utilize their resources. We discuss possible moves for OWL to increase in its game presence and toss around some ideas for the league to expand in 2020.
