Silkthread thoughts on Overwatch League

Well, my thoughts on OWL is that I think it’s definitely exciting and awesome even coming from a person who most likely won’t be participating in it. I think it’s a great step for the future of esports in general and hope that it succeeds as much as I desire it to. Obviously, many orgs have been dropping/leaving the OW scene recently so it’s hard to view the scene going in a positive direction at the moment but I really hope the OWL fixes that. Regarding the recent announcements for OWL, it’s just so great for me personally to see this fantasy-like thoughts of an official league for Overwatch slowly turn into a reality.
