    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.

    I don't follow the scene, but holy shit Riot is fucking stupid for not giving Immortals an NALCS franchise partially because of IMT's buy into an Overwatch franchise. Story still developing.

    Rick Fox vs a random collection of investors.

    Rick Fox wins.

    Doesn't look like it's because of IMT buying in, but because IMT has invested too much into their Overwatch franchise and doesn't have the resources to support their LoL team.

    I don't understand why anyone would bother investing in the OWL, blizzard have shown they suck at esports. They bungled starcraft 2, they bungled HOTS, their overwatch approach is rubbish - very few people give a fuck about competitive OW, they don't understand internally what makes something a good esport.

    I mean overwatch is still really fucking popular. League is a perfect example that your gameplay doesn't even have to be spectator friendly for a game to be crazy popular. It's not like riot isgreat at figuring out what makes a good esport either, their tourney formats tend to be awful, they try to control the meta way too much and they constantly have shady business practices that hang over them but league is still the most popular game by a mile.
