Push The Point #90: December Monthly Recap w/ Dhulky!
We're joined by our friend dhulky to discuss the new new Eternal, Houston, Mayhem, and NYXL rosters, and all of the other huge free agency moves from the last month!...
After a month off, we begin with brief coverage of an announcement from League Vice President Jon Spector regarding some logistics for the 2021 season. We learn about the likely start time of Season 4, the further development of a tournament-based structure, and get a small glimpse at OWL’s coming presence at Blizzcon Online in February. We discuss the brief peek behind the curtain, and discuss what other details may be coming with so much time left in the offseason.
Next, we go through each OWL team’s current roster and breakdown every player pickup, release, and trade as of now. We look at potential strengths and weaknesses for each teams, as well as further potential signings for rosters with needs.
Lastly, we cover a bit of unfortunate news from South Korea as OGN, the home of the Overwatch Apex tournament, announces that they will be ceasing operations by the end of the year. We cover the importance of the network to the growth of Overwatch esports and to the history of the game, and offer our recommendations for absolutely necessary “games to watch”.

CD Project Red is sorry and says they'll do better, Lucasfilm Games is doing better in sharing the Star Wars license, and fan sites need to do better in speculating on trademarks.
We finish up Act 1 with The Heist, meet Claire, learn about Rogue, and meet T-Bug for the first time before infiltrating Konpeki Plaza.
This week we recap the Maldraxxus portion of the campaign and talk about the great characters you meet, like Marileth, Vashj, Emeni, and more!
Happy New Year! We're making somewhat educated guesses about what lies ahead in 2021 for Final Fantasy XIV! Also we goof off a lot in this one. It's fun!
