Translation of the OWL Update from the Commissioner

Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

The Overwatch League commissioner made an announcement today about a scouting report for the league. I translated it as I’ve always found Blizzard reports weird to read for whatever reason. So here goes:

Hello everyone,

From the day OWL was made, we wanted it to be the pinnacle of OW competition.

China, Korea and SEA are doing a good job. We also launched OW Contenders in NA/EU and announced an OW Open division as a clear ladder for masters and above to get into the competitive scene.

We’re excited, you’re excited, we’re all excited. And itchy, but mostly excited. We can’t wait to see people make good teams.

Onto the main point. To make team building easy we are making a scouting report to team owners.

We sent an email to a bunch of players who can opt into this report based on X criteria.

On top of this, these players can’t be on our shit list (Hello Dafran!)

The survey will ask about their experience, preferences and sharing info with team owners.

By doing this, we hope that we can help teams make a good roster, especially for teams that are hilariously bad at making them despite having tons of NBA money (Hello NRG!)

Stats are only one aspect, please stop asking about that? Anyway this should help.

Also, the survey won’t guarantee anyone a spot. Shoutouts to the crew holding down the block from the players, viewers, streamers, cosplayers, fan artists, esports fans.

RIP Prodigy, we love you.
