NRG Esports finally managed to take a prominent offline tournament by demolishing TyLoo in the grand finals of IEM Shanghai. The North American side took home $125,000.

Other than facing off against the Chinese squad, NRG Esports took down 5POWERHellRaisers, and Gambit Esports throughout the event - which isn't part of the Intel Grand Slam due to it taking place during the player break.

Seoul Dynasty allegedly block London Spitfire from visiting fans


According to London Spitfire's General Manager, Susie Kim, Seoul Dynasty is blocking her team from hosting a fan meet in Seoul - the capital of South Korea, where the entirety of the team hails from. When companies bought into the Overwatch League, they acquired territorial rights for other areas in their region, too. This means, for example, that the Houston Outlaws also own Austin and San Antonio - and they have to approve any fan meets or activities from other teams who want to host something in one of their areas.
