Activision Blizzard is moving forward with sales to launch a franchised, city-based Call of Duty esports league, slating a franchise fee of $25 million per team, according to ESPN. The report states that Activision Blizzard executives held meetings with prospective buyers for the league, including existing Call of Duty professional teams and ownership groups of the Overwatch League, and asked potential buyers for a non-binding indication of interest within the next 14 days. If interested, Overwatch League team owners retain the first right of negotiation for their current home markets. The new geolocated franchise league is expected to start in 2020.
 
 
COMPETITION and VENUES

 
February proved fruitful for major esports tournaments, according to Esports Charts, which laid out the top events for the month. The period was led by esports’ newest main title, Apex Legends, which debuted at the beginning of the month and saw Twitch host its own tournament with the most popular streamers. ESL’s IEM Katowice Major took second, followed by Overwatch League, LCS, and Fortnite’s Secret Skirmish.
 
ESPN Events deepened its esports ties with the launch of the first-ever ESPN Collegiate Esports Championship, where hundreds of schools from across North America are competing in qualifiers hosted by Tespa and Collegiate StarLeagues that will launch soon, with the semi-final and championship action taking place in Houston from May 10-12 at the George R Brown Convention Center during Comicpalooza weekend. Titles will see players contend for Overwatch, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Hearthstone, StarCraft II and Heroes of the Storm as the first games to be announced as a part of the LAN Championship event. Tespa and Collegiate StarLeague will hold qualifying rounds for Blizzard’s games and Street Fighter V, respectively, all culminating at the Collegiate Esports Championship in May. The CEC will become Overwatch’s only collegiate championship, previously held at the Fiesta Bowl.
 
Allied Esports announced the creation of an original event series called “Day One” that will celebrate the launch of new game titles on the day they are released to the public. The series kicks off with the debut of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 tonight at 7:30p PT at HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas. Each “Day One” event will bring the title’s community together with prominent influencers and fans playing the game for the first time in front of a streaming audience at the very moment it is made available. FaZe Clan’s Apex (@FaZeApex), Teeqo (@Teeqo) and GwidT (@GwidT) will headline the influencer lineup for the debut of the series today.
 
ELEAGUE is on deck to showcase the best rounds and highlight the top narratives from its CS:GO Invitational 2019 on Friday at 11p on TBS. The debut episode will focus on a North America vs. Europe showdown that took place early in the tournament, as American squad Cloud9 faced off against BIG of Germany. The winner advanced to the Grand Final, to compete for the largest share of a $150,000 purse.
 
BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. and Twitch unveiled the roadmap for the return of the TEKKEN World Tour for 2019 with Twitch again tapped as the exclusive streaming destination for competitive gaming league and the managing partner for TEKKEN 7 league operations, circuit events, and content on a global scale. Entering its third tournament season, the TEKKEN World Tour will offer at least a $185,500 prize pool, with a $100,000 baseline purse for the TEKKEN World Tour Finals. The action begins on April 20 at MIXUP in Lyon, France then continues throughout the year with additional North American based stops in Georgia, New Jersey, Texas, Illinois, Florida, Washington, California, and Toronto, Canada. International tour stops will include Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Australia, Dubai, United Kingdom, Germany, Poland, Italy, Argentina, Peru, South Africa, and more. The TEKKEN World Tour Finals will make its return to Asia in 2019 when the world’s best TEKKEN 7 players converge upon Bangkok.
 
Meanwhile, a big week on the mobile front. ESL is partnering with AT&T to launch the ESL Mobile Open presented by AT&T, a continental United States-based tournament that will take place throughout the year at events such as Dreamhack Dallas, ESL One New York, and Dreamhack Atlanta. Games are set to include Asphalt 9: Legends, Clash of Clans, and PUBG MOBILE with year one of The ESL Mobile Open set to run across three seasons, beginning March 18. Each season will be comprised of three phases, starting with Open Qualifier play allowing players of all skill levels to grind through 4 weeks of competition. Next, the field will be cut to the top 50% of players who move onto the Closed Qualifier stage. From that 50%, the field will be narrowed even further where the best players will see themselves featured in live broadcasts produced by ESL.
 
On a related note, DreamHack unlocked plans for the DreamHack Mobile Series, featuring Clash Royale and Brawl Stars, with a collective prize pool of $20,000 per event. The DreamHack Mobile Series will premiere at DreamHack Dallas on May 31. At DreamHack we’ve always been optimistic towards mobile esports, but we have also been cautious to get involved“, said Michael Van Driel, Chief Product Officer at DreamHack AB. “We now believe the time is right to really jump in head first, and we believe that the DreamHack Mobile Series will bring the right mix of a professional esports experience alongside open competition that fits the ideal structure for mobile esports.

Finally, Tencent announced plans for the PUBG MOBILE Club Open 2019, a competitive year-long event featuring both semi-pro and pro teams playing PUBG MOBILE and $2 million on the line. Beginning this March, players from around the world can register, with PMCO 2019 divided into Spring Split and Fall Split, each with separate prize pool and a Global Finals.

FACEIT is adding Twitch to serve as a platform partner for season seven of ECS, which had previously been exclusive to YouTube. “The community has made it clear to us that Twitch is important to them as viewers, so we’re delighted to be able to offer them access to ECS on that platform,” said Michele Attisani, Co-Founder & CBO of FACEIT. “ECS has broken records for CS:GO viewership on YouTube over past seasons, and now opening up our distribution gives the community more choice on how they watch their favorite teams compete. Season 7 has seen a number of changes to the format and viewing options to ensure we create exciting, engaging and entertaining content.”

INSIGHTS

 
For sponsors, victorious sports franchises are logical choices for branded integrations. In the realm of esports, the ability for gamers to connect on a one-to-one level with fans adds a new element to the sponsorship ROI equation. This week, Stream Hatchet explores whether winning LCS franchises generate higher stream team viewership and engagement. Here are the insights:
  • Victory in the Rift and on Twitch: The top five ranked LCS franchises drove 2.4 times as many hours watched as the bottom five ranked teams. 
  • Placing first in LCS doesn’t make you #1 on Twitch: Although Team Liquid has put together an LCS roster worthy of winning a world championship, Team SoloMid generated nearly 5M more hours watched and 21k more mentions in LCS Twitch Chat. 
  • Last place doesn’t mean dead last: The 100 Thieves franchise may be ranked #10 in LCS standings, however their stream team generated the 5th most hours watched, and the 4th most mentions in LCS Chat.

POWER PLAYERS

 
With ESPN Events opening the doors to the ESPN Collegiate Esports Championship in May, Cynopsis Esports asked John Lasker, vice president of Digital Media Programming for ESPN and Clint Overby, vice president of ESPN Events, about the new endeavor, its role in ESPN’s relationship with esports, and what we can expect.
 
Lasker on what ESPN has learned from esports: Less a learning, but more a validation that esports and more broadly gaming, like traditional sports, brings with it a passionate and engaged audience that has an insatiable appetite to engage, consume and commune around the games, leagues, titles, teams and players they care about. Although we are still in early stages, we believe the passion and an engagement will continue to grow and that ESPN is uniquely positioned to serve that audience.
 
On the launch of the ESPN Collegiate Esports Championship: ESPN has a deep and rich history and unparalleled position in the college sports space. As well, we currently own and operate some of the most impactful collegiate sports events in the country through our ESPN Events team. The combined position of strength and expertise in these areas naturally led us to the creation of the Collegiate Esports Championship. – John Lasker 
 
Overby on picking titles: There are so many great games out there, and while we certainly did not want to exclude any one, we recognized we needed to work with groups that had an interest in the concept and build out from that point. Blizzard and Capcom have been excellent partners to us over the years so we are excited to build on that.
 
On measuring success: We feel like there are multiple levels of success. First and foremost, we want a first class experience for our participants which includes having great games in a great venue in a great city. We feel confident we can deliver on that level of success, and beyond that, we want to monitor how the event performs from an attendance standpoint and well as how fans interact with the content from a cross platform perspective.
 
On sponsorship opportunities: The event will feature a wide variety of on-site and media centric options. Most importantly, we are open to the needs of the potential partner in developing something that works specifically for their needs. Currently we are looking to secure a title or presenting sponsor for the event to give them the first crack at customizing a package that maximizes their assets in the space.
