Episode 4 - The Overwatch League

September 27, 2017

The Overwatch League was announced last year at Blizzcon, almost a year ago now, and most of us in the esports scene have been keeping an eye out for any news that would come out. We’ve been holding on to this subject since a lot of the details had been speculation at this point; however couple days ago Blizzard gave us some of the last details for the League. We now have 12 full teams confirmed, and a most importantly a start date. Of course, there are still a lot of details that have yet to be confirmed, but we thought it was interesting to start talking about what we know. With special guest panelist Guillaume "Kadium" Lavoie, we go over all the good, the bad, and the down right crazy things happening with the OWL.

So embrace tranquility, heal up, and listen to this a-mei-zing episode of OBAN! *BOOP*

Episode 2 - The PUBG conundrum

August 29, 2017

There’s this trend right now in the gaming industry to try and “esportify” everything. Make any game that has the slightest competitive aspect into a full blown competition with huge prize pools and production value. Take the ESL PUBG tournament last weekend for example. A 350k tournament for an unreleased game, with little to no observing tool and no clear tournament rules. This led to a less than stellar event that still managed to pull in huge viewing numbers, despite ghosting, bugs, delays and just an overall mess. The team discuss this and more, in OBAN's second episode!
