CynopsiseSPORTS & GAMING
It’s Thursday July 27, 2017 and this is your weekly early morning eSports & Gaming brief.

Blizzard continues to lay out the roadmap for the upcoming Overwatch League, detailing plans for player signings, salaries and more for the new league. The publisher previously evaluated the world’s top Overwatch players and compiled a stats-based scouting report designed to help team owners discover and measure potential pro players, with players associated with established Overwatch teams—even teams from organizations that have been announced as part of the Overwatch League—not automatically signed to those rosters. Instead, players will be considered members of an Overwatch League team only when they sign the Overwatch League Player Agreement with the team of their choice and it is approved by the Overwatch League.

The official player signing window for Season 1 will run from Aug. 1-Oct. 30, including teams that join the League during the signing window. Teams will sign players to one-year guaranteed contracts with the option to extend the contract for an additional year with a minimum salary for players is at $50,000 per year, with players also receiving health insurance and a retirement savings plan. Plus, teams will distribute at least 50% of their team performance bonuses to their players directly. The total bonuses available for Overwatch League teams in Season 1 will amount to $3.5 million, with a minimum USD $1 million awarded to the Season 1 champion. Meanwhile, each team roster must have at least six players and no more than 12 total and teams will provide player housing and practice facilities during the season which will meet professional standards set by the Overwatch League.

 

COMPETITION

 

ELEAGUE locked in its teams for the ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2017, which starts on Sept. 1 at 10p on TBS, Twitch, YouTube and ELeague.com. Teams will be seeded randomly within their respective groups. “Counter-Strike is an important part of ELEAGUE’s DNA and we’re thrilled to bring it back with a lineup of such elite teams this Fall,” said Christina Alejandre, GM of ELEAGUE and Vice President of esports, Turner Sports.  “We’re also looking forward to a number of compelling storylines including those surrounding the open qualifier and a very competitive tournament field.”

FACEIT and NBC Sports locked in the home for the finals of the Universal Open Rocket League tournament, selecting Santa Ana Esports Arena in Southern California for the event on Aug. 26-27. The Grand Finals will be televised live in the US on NBCSN and across the world on Syfy in the UK, Germany, Australia and multiple countries across Latin America, along with video-on-demand content from both the Regional and Grand Finals on various digital and social channels across the NBC Sports Regional Networks, NBCSN, Telemundo Deportes, FACEIT and Rocket League.

Bluehole, developer and publisher of PLAYERUNKNOWN’S Battlegrounds, is partnering with ESL for a tournament set to take place at Gamescom. The Gamescom PUBG Invitational Presented by Bluehole and ESL will run Aug. 23-26 and feature eighty of the world’s top PUBG players and influencers competing at the game’s first LAN event with a prize pool of $350,000. “From very early on we knew that the success of PUBG was reliant on the passion of its community. We want to celebrate this by inviting eighty of the top players from around the world to compete in the first offline invitational,” said Chang Han Kim, VP and Executive Producer, Bluehole Inc. “It’s been incredibly rewarding to see how quickly our community has grown, and can’t wait to hear about everyone’s experience this summer.”

Speaking of Gamescom, CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher series of games, detailed plans for the Gamescom PUBG Invitational, for a 2-day Gwent tournament. The tournament will feature the final match set on Aug. 26 at the GWENT booth in the Entertainment Area for a piece of the $25,000 prize pool.

Twitch and the Heroes Global Championship (HGC) are teaming up for a Cheering program that lets HGC fans support their favorite teams and organizations, while simultaneously unlocking loot for use on Twitch and in Heroes of the Storm. Twitch viewers will purchase Bits, a virtual good offered by Twitch, that can then be used to Cheer on HGC teams in chat on the BlizzHeroes Twitch Channel, with a portion of the revenue going to the team receiving the Cheers.  

Speaking of Blizzard, the company announced that the World of Warcraft Arena North American Championship finals will be held at the MLG Arena in Columbus from Sept. 7-10 with the top 12 teams from North America invited to compete. In addition to a $100,000 prize pool, teams in the North American Championship will battle for one of four spots available for the World of Warcraft Arena World Championship in November at BlizzCon.

The world’s first MotoGP eSport Championship begins today, as Dorna Sports announced the calendar, tracks, riders, weather conditions and the prizes at stake in the Championship. The esport championship will be closely tied to the races on the calendar, with 6 online events that begin with the Jerez circuit in Spain.   

Now is the time to catch up! We are proud to be partnering with ESL for the Cynopsis Esports Master Class, a unique opportunity to pull back the curtain and experience for yourself what the competitive gaming industry is made of. Featuring not only lectures from some of the most successful executives in the space today, who will break down the ABCs of the business and its players, attendees will also go behind-the-scenes of ESL One New York at Barclays, and receive tickets to the weekend’s festivities for the largest esports tournament on the east coast (if you register early)! Get ahead of the learning curve and register today.

The Esports Integrity Coalition wrapped up its survey canvassing community opinion on the appropriate sanctions for those caught cheating in esports with the results prompting ESL to align with the ESIC’s recommendation. Tournament rules for all events in IEM, ESL One, ESL Pro League series, as well as the ESEA Leagues and amateur competitions, will be updated to reflect ESIC’s recommendation, effective Aug. 1. Additionally, all indefinite match-fixing bans placed on players before February 15, 2015, have been lifted, including bans placed on ex-IBUYPOWER players. “We believe that integrity and fair play are of the utmost importance in esports, and our updated catalogue of sanctions reflects that commitment”, said Ulrich Schulze, Senior Vice President Product at ESL. “All of these adjustments do not apply to bans and punishments issued by Valve directly though, which will still be in place for all Valve sponsored tournaments run by ESL, such as Majors.”  

FIFA announced plans to launch the first Interactive Club World Cup competition in London on Aug. 5. Overall, 24 players from 19 professional football clubs will take part in the tournament. First six teams were revealed, and include Brondby IF (Denmark); Manchester City (England); Paris Saint-Germain (France); Schalke 04 (Germany); Sampdoria (Italy); Valencia (Spain).

POWER PLAYERS – Machinima’s Jason Dimberg

 

This week saw Machinima unveil details for BCF2, with the Body Count Fighting series featuring a lineup of Street Fighter V, Injustice 2, and Tekken 7 show matches pitting some of the world’s top players. BCF2 will be held at Machinima Studios in Burbank today at 9p ET with Krizz Kaliko hosting, streamed live on Twitch and YouTube. Battles will feature:

  • Injustice 2 Title Match: Slayer (Champion) vs. Han Rashid
  • Street Fighter V Title Match:Commander Jesse (Champion) vs. LPN
  • Injustice 2 Feature Match: Awesomo vs. Krayzie
  • Street Fighter V Feature Match:LowTierGod vs. KillerMiller
  • Tekken 7 Feature Match: Princess Ling vs. SperoGin.
Cynopsis Esports caught up with Jason Dimberg – Senior VP of programming/editor-in-chief for Machinima – to discuss the event, how content is evolving for the platform and the strategy under new owners Warner Bros.
 
Dimberg on programming: Last year, we did a full year’s worth of work in programming as part of our partnership with Verizon’s go90 platform. We did a show called Inside Esports, that was very much a news/highlight SportsCenter-type of show for esports. We didn’t find that it resonated very well within the community, so in 2017, we were looking for something that was more on point for what the esports community wanted and a format that could be blossomed into something that was higher up the funnel that a more general audience would find entertaining. We had found some success with that in our past, such as Chasing the Cup on CW, and we are preparing a season of Injustice for them that will air on Oct. 3. That appealed to a broader audience, one that is more female than is typical for esports.
 
On the appeal of BCF: For an event like Body Count Fighting, core esports fans get to see the matchups that they want to see as opposed to hoping that they happen in open tournament play. This event is also good for the competitors themselves because they are the focus of the marketing and the promotion to help build their recognition and brand. In addition, the format is familiar, like a UFC or WWE fight card, and allows us to play up the rivalries and dramas that exist.
 
On the future of the format: We are looking to do an event, not quite every month and probably closer to every six weeks. It will be like a string of live events that will probably see us do eight or so next year. We are contemplating other games as well, for example Marvel vs. Capcom is going to be big. We are contemplating maybe adding Smash as well, with a core of Street Fighter, Injustice, Mortal Kombat and then Tekken making up the big four.
 
On changes with Warner Bros.: We are certainly putting the focus on Machinima content back on gaming and the gaming community. If you think back to Machinima’s roots, it was a collective of creators from the gaming community who came together at a time when, in order to make money, you had to band together. We are now laser-focused on that audience and we want to make being a gamer more fun.
