The Run Out: Is This The Second G2 Era?

By Arran "Halo" Brown

Over the last few years, professional Siege has been known for one thing, G2's incredible dominance of the scene. Winning 11 Premier and Major titles combined, (14 if you're going back to the days they were playing under Penta Esports), G2 have been the face of Siege esports for a significant period. While the last 6 months has seen the team's form dip to a point they needed a direct invite to the 2020 Six Invitational. G2 have not only retooled their roster but shown that they are willing to head into a different direction, as they look to move forward into their second era of dominance. This time, as Siege's super team!

At This Point, The 2020 Overwatch League Season Should Be Asterisked In The Record Books

The 2020 season of the Overwatch League should have an asterisk beside its entry into the record books, to indicate that that the season does not hold any importance at the earliest opportunity, so that 2021 can be the focus for teams moving forward and that the homestand format be reattempted. Yes, you read this correctly. While I want to see how the league plays out and give the eventual winner the respect they deserve for winning the season, I also believe that in the grand scheme of things, the 2020 season should not be assessed as the important season it was meant to be.
