I know I am a minority but I kind of enjoyed watching the OW League and I still do (not as much as before, but I can’t say I don’t at all). I feel like the hero bans don’t really make thing unstale… it just makes people play heros that are the best for that weeks temporary scenario… which does not showcase how good a player is on a hero or the best team winning per se. Since what they should play is out of their hands. IE there are probably people in top 500 who are actually mechanically better at that individual hero, IE some Torbs in top 500 were likely better than some we saw this weekend and I wouldn’t say an automatic turret killing a hero is enjoyable to watch at all. But the hero is strong in the meta even if they are not the greatest Torb so they are forced into the pick. I also hate how they have muted the general chat in games now for the most part, I feel it detracts soo much from players personalities and antics. But I mean it is free and it is something to watch so I can’t complain massively.
You’re right though, the real issue is cheaters and the growing frequency you encounter them, while how long they exist without actioin taken against them.
I gave up, this is me now, two gaming comps… plays Nintendo Switch haha.
Good luck sir
