campercan someone eli5 what's going on pls :)Overwatche league is coming up and teams are realizing it's not fiscally viable for them to try and get in, so they're dropping their teams
On the upside, hidan and ube are now, those are both big pogchamps
Except Fnatic, LG, and Splyce all have spots lined up for OWL. Don't know about Dignitas. Blizzard has said that the first iterations/announcements for OWL are set to start Q3 of this year.
Teams are actually being dropped the following reasons:
1. Under performing rosters with a league spot are being released in anticipation of getting new rosters/buyouts for the league. (Splyce/Fnatic)
2. Performing rosters without a guaranteed league spot are releasing to get a buyout from teams/investors that will have a league spot. (Dignitas I think)
3. Under performing rosters are being dropped after months of under performing. (Denial, LG, etc)
Also in the case of Denial the players said Denial was not treating them well and wanted to leave the org regardless of performance issues.
Anyways, since OWL is *supposedly* imminent in Q3 many of these teams are taking this opportunity to drop rosters in anticipation of picking up new ones for the league whether they be new or existing orgless teams.
