MaSsan is no stranger to being involved in Blizzard games, with a wealth of experience in streaming and playing professionally in StarCraft II and Hearthstone. He has now stepped down as Meta's CEO and owner, leaving to join Team Seoul in the Overwatch League.
Meta have announced that they have acquired new ownership, an as-yet-unnamed Canadian investor. The organisation will also be acquiring a team house for its Athena and Bellum Overwatch rosters. Athena is currently undergoing a rebuilding phase after being knocked out of APEX Season 4 without a single victory, putting the team at risk of relegation from the tournament.
