Welcome to the Outback, ya bloody drongos. Or maybe that should be flamin’ galahs? Thankfully, Siege’s take on bringing Aussie operators and an Australian map to the game aren’t quite that cringeworthy. It rides that line soooo closely, but overall, it’s OTT grouse Aussie Straya yobo stuff – but it works.
The latest Esports Moment is a chat with Order General Manager Jake ‘Spawn’ Tiberi and Order Chairman Adrian Giles. From founding the org to the future of the industry, we cover a lot of ground in this latest episode.
Every week, every month, there’s yet another sign that now is the time when esports levels up and shows the wider world why it’s time to take notice. This new show – The Esports Moment – will talk to people who have had a big hand in the esports journey so far, and those who are shaping its future.
Blizzard shocked fans when they announced they were shutting down the Heroes Global Championship at the end of 2018. But now the esports community is stepping up to keep the scene alive. All we now need is the fans to show up and make it a viable long term effort.
We’re back after the summer break (which included a literal break of a bone, so things were slower than we expected…) and this is a short and sweet catch up on what went down and just how important the year ahead seems to be for Blizzard.
Genome is back to help dive deep into all things Overwatch, and we explore all the recent big events – Overwatch World Cup, new OWL teams (and their colour schemes), all the movements of Aussie players around the global scene, and Contenders S3 kicked off this week so we take a close look at what to expect there too.
The biggest event on the annual Blizzard games calendar, Blizzcon, is right around the corner. So to kick off The Scrapyard, we’re taking a close look at all six games in the stable to think about the year so far and what we expect from the big show.
