Atlantic All-Star

All-Star Preview: Team Atlantic

The Disconnect in Competitive OW and OWL: What can be done?

With the off-season in full swing, I decided to do some research on a topic that’s bugged me for some time. Why would people who play Overwatch competitively not be interested in the Overwatch League? It just didn’t make any sense to me.
