Interestingly, there are still quite a few details we’re not privy to, including the identities of several wildcard selections (the Los Angeles Sunset, Hong Kong Stars, and Montreal Nationals have yet to announce their final roster spots) nor is the structure of the games and matches been conveyed to many people’s liking.
Despite its continued existence in the abstract, optimism for the GPL is high for league, as people get ready to tune in and see what it is all about on Tuesday… although healthy skepticism remains in some corners.
