Recently there have been a lot of rumors regarding the Overwatch league. With little to no information coming out from the company, Blizzard has been on the receiving end of several of the rumors regarding the Overwatch league.
One of the biggest problems for teams regarding the OWL is the high price point for the franchise spots. With each spot almost reaching $20 million in price, not many organisations are able to invest into the OWL.
Blizzard has come out with statements regarding the situation. They have clarified that they are looking forth to developing the scene and will be looking forth to making the entire competitive scene better.
“Second, we’d like to dispel any rumors that we’re ignoring endemics. Anyone who knows Blizzard understands how deeply we care about the communities around our games. The league is built upon the best elements of endemic esports programs and traditional sports, and we’re in active discussions with many teams and owners from both worlds because it will take a village to stand up a league with such an unprecedented structure. Those conversations have been going well and there’s a lot of excitement around our ambitious plans.
