TRENDS

 

 

As the platform wars wage on, there appears to be one situation that has resulted in a positive change in viewership. Although there are many variations in platform changes, like from Twitch to Mixer or from YouTube to Twitch, the change showing the most promise thus far has actually been from Twitch to YouTube. This week, Stream Hatchet analyzed and predicted the growth from two streamers who recently made that move.

· By taking a week of CouRage’s viewership on Twitch from October and comparing it to a recent week of his on YouTube, his total hours watched grew by 16.37%.
· Applying the same growth percentage increase to Valkyrae over one week, Stream Hatchet predicts she will reach 33.4k hours watched after moving from Twitch to YouTube.
· Both CouRage and Valkyrae had YouTube channels where they posted VoD content before making the switch for live streaming. This pre-existing presence on YouTube could be a reason they’re seeing this level of success.

Kia Motors will also exhibit the latest Kia automobiles for LEC fans at roadshows later this year.

The LEC also announced Alienware as a returning sponsor to provide official competition hardware for LEC, including outfitting the league with the latest Aurora R9 desktop and their brand new AW2521HF 240Hz IPS gaming monitors in 2020. Alienware will be the presenting partner of the Match of the Week show. “As a league, the LEC has had a fantastic year of strong viewership growth and competitive success internationally,” says Bryan DeZayas, director of global marketing for Alienware. “The rebranded broadcast and talented on-camera team create a show that is entertaining for viewers of all levels of play to enjoy. The impressive 2019 performances from rosters like G2, Fnatic and Schalke and have shown the world that some of the best players and competition to come will be found here in the LEC.”

Secretlab locked in a partnership with G2 Esports. Secretlab will be the official chair sponsor of G2’s ten teams, including its League of Legends team, its Rainbow Six Siege players and Rocket League. To celebrate, Secretlab and G2 created the Secretlab G2: Army of Champions Edition gaming seat. “We take it seriously when it comes to deciding what equipment and hardware to use and Secretlab consistently provides top-quality products for our pro players who spend countless hours training and competing from their seats. Our G2 League of Legends and CS:GO players experienced firsthand the unmatched quality and comfort of Secretlab’s gaming chairs on the global stage last year. Now, the pinnacle of sitting experiences is available to our entire #G2Army with the Secretlab G2 Edition, uniting our fans and players on a whole new level.”

POWER PLAYERS-Carlos Alimurung

 

 

The New Year brought news of a bevy of deals from MMA outfit ONE Championship, with the partnerships and subsequent activations set to reach into its esports division, ONE Esports as well. Brands, many of which are activating in esports for the first time, while others are staples, include: JBL, TUMI, Red Bull, Lazada, DBS Bank, Foodpanda, Hugo Boss, Harvey Norman, Secretlab, California Fitness, Kredivo, Reckitt Benckiser, and Unilever. Brands are all primed to collaborate with ONE Championship and ONE Esports on various martial arts and esports initiatives. Following its first events at the end of 2019, Cynopsis Esports caught up with ONE Esports CEO Carlos Alimurung to talk about the state of the league and its events.

Alimurung on joining ONE Esports: There’s really three things that convinced me to join ONE Esports at their CEO. The first one is that when you have an opportunity to meet with a guy like Chatri Trisiripisal, you want to work with him because he has such a passion for his business and his personality is magnetizing and you realize that there is a lot you can learn from him. The second reason is that after four years at Battlefy, I learned how to harness the energy and enthusiasm of the community through technology. I had also worked at Univision, which labels itself as the voice of Hispanic America, because they know how to tell the stories of Hispanic Americans in a very authentic way. So when I looked at the story of ONE Championship and how they pitch it around deep cultural values and heritage, I said to myself that if one can take those same capabilities and apply to esports, I would have a huge impact on the ecosystem.

On goals: Our mission is to unleash onto the world esports superheroes. The reason that is our mission is because our community needs that. From a commercial perspective, if you do the storytelling right, that allows you to broaden your audience beyond just hardcore gamers, and it also allows your brand partners to talk about their company values beyond just logo slapping. We are looking to do this across titles, across platforms and across time. You will see a lot more of that in 2020.

On early takeaways: We proved that the community was there. The net promoter score for attendees was above 90%; that’s huge. The brand recall was also above 80%. When it comes to opportunities to improve, it was our first event so there are all these little production things that I want to get better at. Fortunately, there are no big red flags there and they are all doable. We are only going to get better at producing these kinds of events. When we can go back and saw we got over 80 million views from our Singapore event, I think that is a great place to start from.

On picking titles: There are two ways we think about the titles. We are starting in Southeast Asia but we have global aspirations. We truly believe there is a multi-billion dollar opportunity in esports and we are going to go after it, but that means you have to have a global perspective. The first one is what is relevant and popular in Southeast Asia. That has a different set of game titles than other parts of the world. They way over-index on mobile esports and you will soon see some announcements in that space. But we also have to consider global titles that we think have longevity to them, which we think of as Street Fighter, Tekken, Dota 2. There will be other titles we announce, but that’s how we think about it.
