    Launched in January 2018, the Overwatch League (OWL) is the first large-scale concerted effort to build a competitive, global framework for an esport that can rival the largest pro sports leagues. $3.5 million in prize money, a broadcasting deal with ESPN, and the purchase of OWL teams by celebrity owners including Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, and Stan Kroenke, owner of the Los Angeles Rams, set the stakes for the launch. The first season ended in a tense round of playoffs that climaxed in a suspenseful championship series in a sold-out Barclay’s Center. Austin Moorhead, a gamer who found himself fascinated by the emerging world of pro players, embedded himself during OWL’s debut season with multiple teams, including the London Spitfire, which would go on to become Overwatch’s first world champion. In Young Guns, he takes readers behind the scenes of the wild first season of a competition that just might become as ingrained in our culture as Sunday football, revealing a high-stakes, pressure-cooker world of profane teenagers who earn six-figure salaries, TV executives and traditional sports owners struggling to understand and conquer youth culture, and a game whose innovation progresses so fast that fans watch their favorite gamers practice for hours just to keep up with it. Told with perspective on the subculture and unrivaled access into how both the OWL and the teams that compose it have built themselves to succeed, Young Guns is a fascinating look at the ascendance of competitive gaming and the future of sports.

  • HEY! LISTEN!

    A thoroughly enjoyable look at the early days of video gaming – comprehensive and fun. Loved it!
    – Stuart Ashen (aka ashens)

    The ‘A La Recherche du Temps Perdu’ of the gaming community. The ‘A La Recherche du Temps Pew-Pew-Pew’, as it were.
    – Dara O’Briain

    If ‘Games Master’ was a Nobel title passed on through the ages like ‘Duke of York’ or ‘Rear of the Year’ rather than simply the name of a 90s magazine and TV show then Steve McNeil would surely be the current holder of the esteemed position. What I’m saying is, he knows a LOT about games…
    – Scroobius Pip

    Taking us on a historical journey from the very early days all the way through to the late 1990s the book tells the stories of the men and women behind some of the most wonderful (and occasionally awful) games of the golden age, the fierce rivalries, bizarre business practices and downright bonkers risks taken during the pioneering days of computer and video gaming. This informal yet extremely well-researched book manages to educate and entertain in equal measure and this – dare I say – well-informed retrohead actually learnt a good deal. A thoroughly enjoyable read!
