TRENDS

 
The MOBA genre is the bread and butter of traditional esports. Two teams enter a set battle arena and vie for control of strategic locations to destroy the enemy base and claim victory. This week, Stream Hatchet compares the esports impact of League of Legends and Dota 2, two of the world’s most popular esports titles:
  • On Average, Dota 2 tournaments generate higher Prize Pools: The average Dota 2 tournament generates $1.5M more in prizing than the average League of Legends (LoL) tournament.
  • Does this translate to viewership?: Not necessarily, the average LoL tournament generates 1.7M more hours watched and an AVG CCV that is 8.8k viewers higher than Dota 2.
  • The Why Factor: League of Legends might be performing better as an esports due to publisher influence. Tournaments organized by Riot Games generated an average of 5.2M more hours watched and an average audience that was 29.9K viewers greater than other organizers.

Fnatic, meanwhile, announced that the organization secured $19 million in Series A funding. The investment round was led by tech entrepreneur Lev Leviev of LVL1 Group, who also joins the board, with new and continued support from investors including transatlantic venture capitalist Beringea, BlackPine, Unbound, Raptor Group and Joi Ito. With this investment, Fnatic will enter the next phase of its global expansion, strengthen involvement in tier-one leagues, including the League of Legends European Championships, launch new product categories in its esports equipment subsidiary including a new audio line, as well as scaling up resources to deliver and deploy marketing efforts and reach for brands on an international scale.

Luminosity Gaming saw Canadian rapper and singer Tory Lanez join its ownership group where he will also serve as a global ambassador for the franchise.  The new funding will assist the group in its global expansion.
 
Echo Fox founder and co-owner Rick Fox is reportedly poised to leave the organization. Dexerto reports that the decision was made after an encounter between Fox and a founding partner from Vision Esports, whom the site named as Amit Raizada, that saw Fox inform the team’s major stakeholders that Raizada would no longer be a part of the organization due to his actions, noting that, “The recent outrageous and abhorrent display of pure racism made by a significant Echo Fox shareholder as well as threats to my family have made it impossible for me to continue to remain associated with the company.” An email exchange, according to the report, revolved around a dispute between Jace Hall and Raizada that resulted in Raizada using the n-word. Attorneys for Raizada denied that he used “a racial epithet” to Fox, although a separate statement admitted his use of it toward Hall.
