On a per capita basis interest in the league in Canada is highest of all countries. Surprisingly, South Korea is 17th. Canadian interest will decline as the weather gets better.
I suspect OWL will continue to be a "strategic initiative" for ATVI for the rest of 2019. Blizzard has the lowest operating margins of any ATVI Division. Its going to be interesting to see if top OWL people get replaced in the remainder of 2019... or if top people leave on their own.
Blizzard must make some big, bold moves in the next year to stop OWL's continual decline.
