OWL Inaugural Season: Week 4 Power Rankings

Written by Luke Greenhouse. Things are heating up heading into the final week of the stage. 7 teams are vying for a spot in the Stage 1 finals, but only 3 will make it. My money is on the three Korean teams, but honestly anyone of the 7 (Fusion, Valiant, Uprising, Outlaws, Dynasty, NYXL, Spitfire) could make it. Then, after this week we get a week off and then into week 2, with roster additions, new maps, and a new patch! Now, here’s who my money is on heading into this week:

OWL Inaugural Season: Week 3 Power Rankings

Written by Luke Greenhouse. What. A. Week. All three all-Korean teams took an L, and SIX GAMES went to 5 rounds. That’s exactly 50% of games played going down to the last match.

On Wednesday, viewers on the English Twitch channel alone peaked at >441k, and that doesn’t count the streams in other languages or the mlg.com stream. The team uniforms and spectating experience were all top notch, and the casters and analysts were a joy to watch. Before I get into the power rankings this week, I want to point out something that I found ext

Destiny 2 Coming to...Battle.net?

The Destiny 2 PC version had been the subject of much speculation, but once confirmed by Bungie, focus turned to a new aspect. What will Destiny launch from? PC Gaming exists in a diverse ecosystem, occupied by Steam, the Windows Store, Origin, Uplay, GOG and even games that launch straight from the execute file. Even further, many “platform” games such as Grand Theft Auto V or EVE have their own dedicated launchers. So what was Destiny going to exist on? Speculation favored
