Congrats to Nouns DotA on their 2nd place finish in the BTS Pro Series Season 14!
It may not be the result we wanted, the team showed that they they can compete with the best of 'em, with convincing wins over beastcoast & Shopify Rebellion on their way to the Grand Finals.
Although we smoked Shopify Rebellion the day prior, sending them to the losers bracket, they regrouped and won the rematch. GGs.
Now it's time for us to shake it off and get ready for the next competition!
Meanwhile, enjoy The Lima Major.

Lots of news on the crypto-frontier while we keep plugging away internally. Sam has made some awesome development on the website, some great conversation this last week regarding Revolution implementation, and some talk about L2s (Coinbase is launching an L2 running on Optimism, what!?)
Personal opinion: extremely low transaction fees are necessary to facilitate user engagement and get people that may have purchased ETH on an exchange like Coinbase to actually use it toward something meaningful, like becoming members of Nouns Esports and supporting esports players and creators!
Season 1 Retro Payments have been distributed! Thanks to Sasquatch and maty for putting a ton of time & thought into this. Most importantly, thanks to everyone that contributed to get Nouns Esports off the ground! I think it's important to reflect on what we've accomplished so far with contributors from all over the world!
A proposal has been brought forward to add Boosh & Mach as Pod members. Sasquatch writes: "Inevitably we may expand our governance past a Pod, such as via a Nouns fork or Revolution. In the interim, this proposal hopefully reduces friction around getting feedback from voting members of the Esports Pod." Be sure to drop your thoughts in the Discord thread!
Peter put together an awesome pitch for a Smash Club. Check it out and be sure to leave feedback in Contributor chat.
We host a weekly Contributor Call on Fridays at 3PM EST on our Discord. Everyone is welcome! Drop by if you would like to discuss these ideas, get team updates, and more!
Lastly, check out our Contributor Dashboard for all things Nouns Esports.
