An official launch, interest from overseas Organisations, and the Limbonauts Paladins team scrims against the competition leader. Plus the final wrap-up on the CS:GO changes. Each day we will update readers on the progress, regress, and distress of launching the Limbonauts esports organisation, along with the process of bringing a Paladins league to Australia
We have been working pretty heavily on the league today. We made an official announcement on Twitter for the official Paladins Oceanic Pro League, which consisted of the link to Twitch, the Discord link and the signup link to the tournament. There was a small cost — for an animation graphic just to professionalise the tweet.
The official post from the POPL verifying the announcement of the league! A huge thanks to everyone involved. Welcome champions, to the Oceanic realm of Paladins!

We had the higher-ups in an international organisation contact us about the tournament because they’re interested in picking up a team, which is actually huge. They already have a team in the Call of Duty World League (CWL). That’s very big for Oceanic Paladins, even just getting interest from Orgs like this.
- In How to Build an Org we reveal our daily progress creating an esports organisation and launching a competitive league.
We also set up a few more teams in the tournament, and we’ve had engagement on the tweets from some big Oceanic teams such as Athletico, as well as from professional players from Envy and Renegades. We’re getting coverage from overseas as well.
So far we have eight teams signed up but there are at least four more that will be registered soon. Currently, there are four officially announced organisations with teams in the POPL (Paladins Oceanic Pro League). But we have more organisations and teams interested in the league, and can pretty much confirm there will be another three to four organisations with teams.
On the Limbonauts organisation front, it was a less eventful day for us. The Paladins team scrimmed against CMV, the number-one team in the region. They’re a powerhouse team and we took a few points off them — but to no avail, unfortunately.
We had to let our Limbonauts CS:GO team go yesterday. It caused a little bit of drama. The approach we took after parting ways with the CS:GO team was the right one. They have a talent for sharing their opinions. Anything they said or posted we just completely ignored. It’s pretty much resolved itself now. The other organisation owners I spoke to agreed it was the right move.
