Another major organisation has called it quits in Overwatch. With Overwatch League focussing on big money investment from traditional sports organisations and the buy-in being a steep $20 million we have seen a line of organisations exiting the scene.
CLG Overwatch was never the best, but they were a strong force with surprise upsets in many of their matches. The goodbye listed by the website is heartfelt and you can feel their love for their players in the letter. You can read the entire letter below :
We still believe in Overwatch as a competitive esport. The game is dynamic, exciting to watch, and we look forward to seeing the competitive scene develop.
Our Overwatch players are exceptional individuals. In the time that they’ve been here, they’ve exemplified what it means to be a part of CLG. From the beginning, we have always wanted what’s best for our players. For the past few months, the players have had access to all our resources such as housing, food, and equipment to hone their skills and figure out their next steps. We have tried our best to find new homes for our players and coach in these past months and you will all undoubtedly find out more about their future as the year comes to an end. Some players are already a part of new organizations and we are in the process of finalizing deals for others.
We want to thank Mikado, The, Waffletastic, Hydration, iShiny, Miso, Shake, and Henry for being a part of the CLG family. Thank you for the energy you’ve brought to the organization, your enthusiasm for competition, and professionalism in and out of the game.
