This week’s episode of OWL Things Considered is out and is focused on player representation in the Overwatch League. This week’s guest is the show’s guest is Ryan Morrison, who is a founding partner of both the Morrison Lee law firm and Evolved Talent Agency. We dig into Ryan’s background, specifics around player representation, punishments, the tier two and three scenes, and some random questions towards the end that I really wanted to ask but couldn’t think of a category for.
Ryan has an amazing amount of insight into the workings of the Overwatch League. His agency represents roughly two-thirds of the players in the League, and he has grown both a law firm as well as a talent agency across video games and esports. We talk about what the process is like negotiating a contract for a player with a team, addressing players who are unhappy with their current situation, and how punishment and arbitration works. We also dig into the ecosystem of esports talent representation, sponsorships and a lot more!
