TNL Take: This week's review was an unusual one as it started over the weekend rather than Monday. This past Sunday, The Next Level broke the news that I had been working on for a few days that 4 members of WME-IMG's eSports team was leaving. There is a much deeper story here and will have more on that once the dust has settled.

Wait, why is there a logo about Activision-Blizzard's upcoming Overwatch League but no info?

Because The Next Level is working on something unique that will be published next week that goes deeper into what has and has not been revealed.

Also, look out for some more interesting news next week 😉

 

Have a great weekend!
