OWL got off to a cracking start last Wednesday and hasn’t slowed down since. In addition to introducing esports to a larger audience and sparking important conversations about diversity and team management, there were also a bunch of really great games.
Hopefully the quality continues today as the league’s last three matches of the inaugural week wrap up. In addition to Blizzard’s hero shooter, however, there’s a lot going on in Dota 2 and Counter-Strike, along with a Call of Duty tournament in New Orleans.
