Vancouver Overwatch League Franchise Reveal

After going over 40 days without a sign of life on Twitter, @VancouverOW dropped some serious news a couple days ago with the following tweet:

That’s right. Confirming what we here at Ready Set Pwn already shared with you way back on November 8, the official reveal of the Vancouver Overwatch League franchise will happen tomorrow, December 1st!

While some had already run with the news we shared (and the leaks we saw via email replies from Canucks Fan Services) to buy tickets to the Canucks game, there is actually an official reveal party happening at The Sports Bar concurrent to the Canucks matinee against the Dallas Stars – so long as you were lucky enough to grab one of 150 free or 100 50 VIP (which cost $100) tickets:

Since that announcement, little else has officially been shared and as you see us here as your premiere source for Vancouver Overwatch League news, you’ve asked questions of us.

Well hold on to your shorts, because I’ve got answers for you!

If I have tickets to the Canucks game, do I get into the reveal event at The Sportsbar?

No.  A ticket to the Canucks game will not grant access to the Sportsbar event.  That said, the reveal will happen in-bowl, so Canucks ticket-holders will see the reveal and simply miss the party.

Can people live stream the reveal if they are in attendance?

While an official live stream will be available on Twitch (https://twitch.tv/vancouver_owl) that will have exclusive content that won’t be shown in-bowl, those in attendance – either at the Canucks game or the reveal party – are permitted to live stream so long as they follow Rogers Arena camera guidelines.

We’ve actually got this covered too.  Ready Set Pwn’s OmniStrife will be at the reveal and will be sharing exclusive party content on Twitch (https://twitch.tv/theomnistrife)!!

Can I bring my kids?

You sure can.  Everything about the event will be family friendly!

Are all ticket holders (free & VIP) guaranteed access?

Anyone with one of the 100 50 VIP tickets is guaranteed access.  The remaining 100 spots will be filled by some of the 150 General Admission (free) tickets will get in on a “first come, first served” basis.

Will non-ticket holders be granted access on a “first-come, first-served” basis?

For non-VIPs, priority access will be given to the people with free tickets.  If someone wants to take a chance and hope not enough people show up with free tickets, they can try.  Simply put, you’re rolling the dice that you’ll get in without a ticket.

Are you going?  We’d love to hear from you in the comments below or on Twitter!

Update (7:30pm on Nov. 30) – the @VancouverOW team reached out to clarify that there were only 50 VIP tickets available, not 100.  They also reconfirmed that there are a total of 150 spots available for both VIP & General Admission ticket holders (with only VIPs guaranteed access).

Vancouver Titans – Are They For Real?

Ever since Vancouver was awarded an Overwatch League expansion franchise, I’ve had my ears close to the ground.  And in case you missed it, I heard some pretty loud “whispers” that became very specific about the franchise itself:

While I left that tweet somewhat cryptic due to the nature of the whispers I was hearing at the time, once the proverbial cat was let out of the bag, others started whispering the same thing.

The franchise would be known as the Vancouver Titans, they would rock blue & green colours that were similar to that of their cousins on the hockey side, and would have a Yeti within their logo.

Now we still don’t know this to be the case for sure, and while we wait for official word from the franchise, that hasn’t stopped the whispers from getting to me.  So I decided to do some digging and discovered a few things.

A WHOIS Record

If what I’ve heard about the name of the franchise being accurate, then it would be safe to assume that vancouvertitans.com would need to be secured.  Since November 8th, I’ve been performing a daily WHOIS on the domain and today struck gold – a record was created yesterday!  And thinking like a Canadian, also took a gander to see if vancouvertitans.ca was registered – yep, record created yesterday too.

So, is this the smoking gun?  Heck no.  Based on me sharing those whispers a couple weeks back, some enterprising soul could’ve easily picked the domain up for squatting purposes.  Yet it does seem intriguing the creation only happened yesterday.

Winston’s Lab?

If you haven’t heard of Winston’s Lab, then you’ve missed out on the analytics world of esports.  And while we could pen an entire post dedicated to all the statistical information that’s available to the world of Overwatch, a particular page caught my eye.

A Vancouver Titans record on Winston’s Lab!

That’s right – they have a record for the Vancouver Titans!

Again, not the smoking gun we’re looking for.  Yet it is a gun.  And a gun that not only references the name I shared a couple weeks back, but a country flag indicating Korea.  Anyone know of a group of Korean Overwatch players available?

So… what do you think of this new information?  Are the Vancouver Titans the real deal?  Have I started to decipher the code?  Only time, and the broken silence of @VancouverOW, will ever tell.

But boy, do I love a good mystery.

Episode 3 – Ashe to Ashe

The Vancouver Overwatch League expansion franchise has still been quiet even though much of the league is making noise. We also learn who Hero 29 in Overwatch will be, see how Canada fared at the Overwatch World Cup and do a run-through of what we learned at BlizzCon.

Episode 2 – Lumination

The Vancouver Overwatch League expansion franchise has partnered with Luminosity Gaming, so what does that mean? We also take a spin around the league, talk about the recent fan events in LA and London, and wonder if a new hero will be announced at BlizzCon.
