Overwatch League viewership on Twitch exceeds 400000 on the first day

Overwatch League viewership on Twitch exceeds 400000 on the first day

The Overwatch League, billed by organizers as the first major global professional e-sports league with competition organized by cities, begins play Wednesday with three matches at the former NBC Studios in Burbank.

Overwatch League features teams of players playing the popular game "Overwatch", with teams that advance to the playoffs securing significant payouts.

"Overwatch is a first-person shooter that oozes personality and charm, but beyond that surface layer lies a deep, tactical game where your most powerful weapon is your brain". The GRTV team are in LA reporting on the event, and during their adventures, they captured press conference footage of five of the six teams involved in the first day's action.

The Overwatch league's long and packed schedule, with an array of different viewing options for fans, should give Activision Blizzard the chance to cash in from advertisers.

Before the Overwatch League took over the top tier of Overwatch esports, Korean player Se-yeon played with one of the top teams in the world, ROX Orca.

The Google go app appears to be a Lite version of Google Search but also have more functionalities. The company has also made the arrival of the two-wheeler mode in Google Maps official.

Then there's the risk of Overwatch overkill. "To regularly go with friends or family to a place and watch your team live is a new frontier for esports, and I think it's really exciting". Los Angeles Gladiators, Seoul Dynasty, New York Excelsior, London Spitfire, Philadelphia Fusion, Houston Outlaws, Florida Mayhem, Dallas Fuel, Shanghai Dragons, San Francisco Shock, Los Angeles Valiant, and Boston Uprising. Fans stayed throughout the day, the seats still full past 9 p.m. when Dallas and Seoul were still waging war in an early frontrunner for best Overwatch series of the year. You'll get 100 free Tokens if you log in to the game before February 13, but after that you should expect to pay a bit of cash to show your team spirit. Dynasty met their match as they clashed against the Dallas Fuel.

But Blizzard's push to publicize the Overwatch League would be futile if the matches themselves weren't up to scratch.

Simply put, getting more than one team skin will require players to pay up for them.

The camera changes are fast-paced but not hard to follow. Skins are available for all 12 teams, and all 26 Overwatch characters, with 50% of the revenue from every Overwatch League skin sold going toward a shared revenue pool for all league teams.
