Today we talk about the CS:GO Open Circuit, whether or not MMOs are truly dead and you’ll never guess whose on Twitch now…
Counter-Strike is one of the oldest esports scenes in the industry and has always operated a bit differently from leagues like Overwatch or League of Legend. Dreamhack and the ESL are teaming up to form the CS:GO Open Circuit. We also talk about the launch of World of Warcraft Classic and if the popularity of the launch could actually be evidence of the end for the MMO genre. Plus, the United Kingdom’s Parliament has a twitch channel, you read that right, the House of Lords and the House of Commons is on Twitch.
