South Korea mid game in the Overatch World Cup

The competition will start in early January, with all matches in the first season taking place at the brand new Blizzard Esports Arena in California. Before that, some pre-season games will take place in December to get things started in 2017 as originally promised.

A mixture of experienced organizations and total esports newcomers have managed to secure spots in the competition, meaning the field will certainly be a mixed bag. However that doesn’t mean that it won’t be a great competition. Everything we have seen so far has got us very excited for the Overwatch League – these are the things we expect to happen in season one.

South Korea is by far the best region when it comes to Overwatch, but with just one spot in the league reserved for a Korean franchise, some top players will look elsewhere. We’ve already seen Cloud9, the London franchise, sign the second best Korean team in the form of Kongdoo Pantera and they will presumably be the C9 OWL roster when season one starts. This is a trend we expect to see a lot, as franchises try and secure the strongest teams in the world, and currently those are the Koreans.

Team Liquid Wins The International 2017 Grand Finals For $10.8M

Team Liquid has sponsored champions in games such as Starcraft, League of Legends and more. Formerly, Liquid’s Dota team was American, but their European one took the crown in a more volatile and profitable environment.

The current roster had varying success throughout the pre-championship season. They performed well in the grand Russian event Epicenter but failed to do as well in the Dota 2 Asian Championships. Still, their victory was foreshadowed in their victory at DreamLeague Season 7’s Atlanta finals, where they took first over other international teams.

The most impressive—and game winning—was one final Juggernaut slash by Miracle-, superpowered by a Double Damage rune that helped to wipe out the entirety of Newbee.

The International Dota 2 Championships 2017

 

cand15_001 The International 7, the seventh iteration of Dota 2’s premiere event, begins today in Seattle. The International Dota 2 Championships 2017, but “TI7” for short – is the Super Bowl of Dota 2. Hosted each year in Seattle by the game’s publisher, Valve, it is an esports extravaganza that draws in fans from all over the world. This year’s prize pool is approaching $23,000,000, over $10,000,000 of which will go to the winning team.

Valve pays for the event via crowd funding. Each year, the company releases a Battle Pass (previously known as the Compendium), an interactive booklet filled with goodies that players can buy and spend money to level up. A portion of the proceeds from Battle Pass sales goes to funding the prize pool, and it’s something of a tradition among Dota 2 fans to try to outdo the previous year’s outlandish sum.

There are 18 teams competing in Seattle from six regions: Europe, North America, South America, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS, A.K.A. former Soviet republics), China, and Southeast Asia. Teams could qualify in one of two ways. Six teams received direct invites to The International based on their performance since the last International, while the other 12 teams were forced to qualify through a series of regional competitions.

The transaction took place over eBay yesterday afternoon. Th eSuper Mario game was  purchased in mint-condition  for $30,100.44 USD. Longtime vintage game seller DKOldies, based out of Pennsylvania, initially listed the pristine copy of Super Mario Bros. under a no-reserve auction and set the bidding at one penny.

Female gaming-enthusiasts have heard harsher jabs like, “Go back to the kitchen” and “We’re going to lose. We have a girl on our team.

According to New York-based market research firm SuperData, male viewership more than doubles female viewership on channels that stream eSports, such as Twitch and Azubu.

“It’s a boys’ club,” said Stephanie Llamas, vice president of research and strategy at SuperData. “You have a lot of males who have used games to feel like a community in a way they might not have otherwise felt, and feeling like someone is intruding and feeling like it’s women is a part of that.
