Scrub League Weekly – EVO gambling & the Scrub League awards picks

It’s a debate-heavy episode this week on Scrub League, as hosts Colin, Kevin and Samantha discuss (read: yell at each other about) EVO’s confirmation that there will be no officially sanctioned gambling at next year’s tournament.

The premier fighting game tournament, held in Las Vegas, seemed the ideal spot (at least to most of the Scrubs) to lay a bet if you’re competitive gaming fan, especially after the news that League of Legends will be gambling-friendly.

Blizzard’s upcoming Overwatch league gets some time in the audio spotlight as the Scrubs dissect the pros and cons of having teams required to “buy in”, and the pressure that puts on them to seek outside capital investments.

Next it’s on to the esports Industry Awards. No, not the REAL industry awards. Scrub League has chosen our own winners for each category. Let us know if you agree with our picks or not, and tweet us @ScrubLeagueCast!
