There are times when you come across someone doing deeds for someone else, but this week saw a leading Injustice 2 esports player do something truly special. On-the-other-hand, Toronto-based esports team for Overwatch pulls out due to branding issues, and we wrap up the Rocket League Championship with Cloud9 taking the trophy home.
Good guy SonicFox
As reported by Kotaku, during the post-finale interview, McLean decided to bring up McCall’s father, who was diagnosed with stage three cancer. To offer some form of support, McLean said he would donate $10,000 of his winnings to McCall’s family, stating he doesn’t participate solely for the money.
Now that is true sportsmanship.
Toronto Esports pulls out of Overwatch
In the announcement, Toronto Esports stated “good riddance” on leaving the Overwatch League, which was met with some degree of criticism.
We have been informed by Blizzard that we will be forced to remove “Toronto” from our brand in only 6 weeks. Mid Contenders season 3. The reason cited: @TorontoDefiant have purchased “exclusive naming rights”. We will be leaving Overwatch effective immediately. Good riddance.
