The current developer team working on Overwatch 2 recently stated that Overwatch will be fully replaced by Overwatch 2 on its October 4th launch date. Having stated this, the developer team plans to completely transition Overwatch gamers to Overwatch 2 and close out service for Overwatch 1. Director Aaron Keller stated that “When OW2 launches on October 4th, it will be a full replacement for the current live service.” Hopefully, this works out for Blizzard and the Overwatch community will be satisfied with the new transition and updates.

League of Legends New Champion Release Update

League of Legends has released exciting news as we wait on the upcoming melee marksman champion, Nilah. Riot Games has Nilah released within the Public Beta Environment where you can practice her new abilities. Get a head start learning her skill set to avoid an old-fashioned molly whopping in your first couple of matches. Nilah is of course a little overpowered as her W increases her movement speed and reduces incoming magic damage. To top it off, Nilah dodges all basic attacks for the duration of the W and can grant an ally those same buffs for half the duration. As a champion, Nilah holds her role in the bottom lane where her passive gives some decent ally buffs. Pair her with strong enchanter support and you'll have yourself an unstoppable duo. To find out more information about her role and skill set, head over to pcinvasion.com.

The North American LCS Summer split began last Friday, kicking off with EG vs C9, a banger of a game. With the return of Jensen in the mid lane for C9, fans were expecting to see how he would mesh in with his new teammates but ultimately EG jojopyun’s Corki showed him why EG reigns as champions of the LCS. EG ends the weekend with a 3-0 start and C9 with an underwhelming 0-3 beginning to their season.
