There is a new game genre in the works. The developers at Ubisoft call it Connected Arcade Team Sports (CATS), my co-host calls them Virtual Spectator Sports (VSS) and my brother calls them Maybe Boomers Will Actually Recognize These as Sports, Sports (MBWARTSS). Our listeners sent in suggestions for other names for the genre and we ran those by Ubisoft developer Stéphane Drapeau who told us about the inspirations for the game. Then Max Bettendorf joins the program to give an honest of review of this game (based on the pre-alpha version) and if it may be the next Rocket League.Rate and subscribe!New episodes Weekly.For daily esports news, check out the Esports Minute (https://esportsminute.fireside.fm/).Follow Mitch on Twitter @Mitch_Reames (https://twitter.com/Mitch_Reames)Follow Esportz Network on Twitter (https://twitter.com/EsportzNetwork), Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/esportznetwork/), and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/EsportzNetwork) @EsportzNetworkOr visit our website esportznetwork.com (https://www.esportznetwork.com/) for updates on what's to come!
OpTic Gaming was one of the largest esports organizations in the world. In 2017 they had the best Call of Duty team with a rabid GreenWall fan base, they secured spots in both the LCS and OWL franchising and were still expanding. They secured extra funding from Infinite Esports and Entertainment, which took the company out of the guiding hands of Hector 'H3CZ' Rodriguez, a move that proved to be fatal. Now, halfway through 2019, OpTic Gaming is just a brand under Immortals Gaming Club competing in the new CDL franchise league. Their LCS spot is being rebranded as Immortals and their Houston Outlaws OWL team will have to be sold. In this podcast we look back at the OpTic dynasty and how it all fell apart. Here are the links I mentioned in the podcast:Dexerto's documentary (https://www.dexerto.com/videos/the-best-call-of-duty-team-of-all-time-optic-gaming-documentary) on the OpTic Gaming dynasty which details more of the key moments and gameplay in Call of Duty.OpTic Hitch, a longtime videographer of OpTic, explaining what changed under Infinite Esports (https://www.dexerto.com/call-of-duty/h3cz-tells-story-infinite-tried-sell-opt-call-of-duty-team-663839) and Entertainment.
