Interview with Seoul Coach Baek Kwang-Jin 

We got the chance last week to talk to Seoul Coach Baek Kwang-Jin about preparing for the Overwatch League in the coming months.  The Lunatic-Hai Manager/Coach is planning for a serious assault on the league with one of the top teams. Here is what he had to say:

  1. Are you excited to bring the team into the Overwatch League? Lunatic Hai has been at the top and now it seems like this league will bring in the best competition in the world.

I am very pleased to work with the back-to-back winners of APEX Season 2 and 3 for the Seoul team in the Overwatch League. Our team will devote time and energy into training to bring the championship back to Korea and earn the value and popularity that traditional professional sports teams are known for.

  1. What has you relationship been like with Kevin Chou in setting up this new franchise?

Kevin Chou provides full support, for instance, the best training equipment and facilities, along with health management, media training, and English language tutoring to the players to positioning the players as professional global athletes. I want to be part of his vision for the team and will endeavor to win the championship in the first season of the Overwatch League.

Interview with Noah Whinston

This past week we sat down with the Immortals CEO Noah Winston to talk about the Los Angeles spot in the Overwatch League. Noah had some fantastic answers and we are very excited to see this team grow in L.A. Here is the interview:

Overwatchscore.com – Con you give us a break down on how the League is shaping up right now. We’re seeing how things are branching out for the league overall, the gap between investors and endemic teams playing out. How do you see things moving forward?

Noah Whinston – I think that as more and more teams have joined Overwatch League, Blizzard has announced more and more plans not just for the league itself but for the future of game. I think a lot of the people who started off pessimistic are now seeing evidence that their initial pessimism was a bit overblown. At least from our perspective as one of the early movers to enter Overwatch League we do hear about some of this stuff before it goes public. In some ways that validates the faith that we put into Blizzard and Activision to kind of put together a strong league not just from a structure perspective but from an ownership perspective. Also, the ability to listen to the community about the features they feel are most important to be changed and updated to create a better play and viewing experience which they are doing. These changes are never going to happen overnight, sometimes it takes concerted effort to get them done as is with any significant changes to league structure or to game structure, but so far from my perspective the changes over the last few weeks have been positive.
