Episode 25 – Even The Pros Stupid (An Overwatch League Episode)

Welcome to another episode of Make Me A Gamer! It just so happened that when we recorded this, it was at the exact same time that the Washington Justice were playing the London Spitfire in Overwatch League. Since TMan and HarveyZ are both fans of the Justice, they ended up multitasking and talking about Overwatch League and Overwatch in general for basically the entire episode while watching the game! TMan goes into detail explaining some of the finer points of strategy and new & old Overwatch metas to HarveyZ. This was a bit of an experiment, but we hope it turned out fun, entertaining, and informative! We hope you enjoy! (This episode was recorded February 21st, 2019.)

Episode 11 – Social Awkwardness: +5 To Speed

This week on Make Me A Gamer, there’s a lot of news for TMan to catch HarveyZ up on. There’s updates on Pokemon, the Rockstar 100 hour work week controversy, as well as new info on the Overwatch League and a brand new Overwatch character!

Overwatch League Has a Maturity Problem

We’re now officially past the halfway point of the first season of Overwatch League. Clear leaders have emerged (the New York Excelsior who have the best record in the league by far), there’s underdogs (the Shanghai Dragons who have yet to win a match) there’s general favorites (the Houston Outlaws, much to my chagrin) and there’s the teams with drama that make the non-game days exciting (both the Dallas Fuel and Los Angeles Valiant). Blizzard has really been pushing their premier eSports league and while the OWL is definitely suffering growing pains, it’s slowly but surely been on a decent course to a more mainstream popularity.

Unfortunately, this weekend a huge accusation and bombshell dropped. Namely DreamKazper, one of the star players of the Boston Uprising, has been accused of knowingly sending message of a sexual nature to at least one underage fan – but possibly multiple girls.

Action has already been taken by his team – the Uprising has terminated his contract already (in under 24 hours). It seems like other members of the Overwatch League and OW pro scene have been instructed to keep quiet about anything else as the matter is investigated by actual police and what-not – this is thanks to a now-deleted tweet by one of the OWL broadcasters who said as much, but now that it’s deleted even just acknowledging that may have been deemed too much sharing.

But DreamKazper’s contract termination and (assumed) expulsion from the Overwatch League brings up a bigger question about the maturity of the Overwatch League and whether it’s really ready for the big time – both in its players and how the general league functions.
