05/07/20: Ubisoft detailed plans for a North American league

 

Medias First Morning Read
Thursday May 7, 2020

Good morning! This is your weekly Esports Brief.
Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Siege is taking over the desert, announcing plans for the launch of a new North American League that will open in late June. The league will feature two major divisions with a four-team Canadian league along with an eight-team US league as well as an overhauled path-to-pro system to cultivate new stars with the minor league system featuring eight teams apiece, creating an overall landscape that will have 28 teams competing in the new North American League.

The US division of the North American League will be headquartered in Las Vegas and deliver an offline format, while the Canadian division will be played online. The inaugural eight teams competing in the US division will be: Spacestation Gaming, TSM, DarkZero Esports, eUnited, Oxygen Esports, Disrupt Gaming, Susquehanna Soniqs and Tempo Storm. Each competitive season runs for nearly a year – from March through the following February – concluding with the Six Invitational global championship. A full season is comprised of three five-week Stages.

“We are tremendously excited for the new Rainbow Six Esports global structure that prioritizes investment and regionalization in each of the territories,” Che Chou, senior director of esports at Ubisoft, said. “In the North America League, the eight US Division teams were selected to ensure a thriving and stable team structure for a premium offline league. “Setting down roots for Rainbow Six Esports in Las Vegas puts our pastime within one of the greatest epicenters of entertainment in the world, which as of today now has an esports league to call it home. Alongside the US Division, we believe the Canada Division and respective Challenger Leagues completes the competitive scene in North America, providing vast opportunities for players of diverse skill levels to pursue the esports dream.”

ESL announced that the 2020 edition of ESL One Cologne will take place without a live audience from August 21-30. In addition, the company stated that Intel Extreme Masters Melbourne 2020 will now be rescheduled for 2021.

Epic Games shut down plans for The Fortnite World Cup for 2020, announcing that all remaining Fortnite events for the year will now be hosted online as a result of the pandemic. “Physical Events – For the rest of 2020, all Fortnite competitions will be held online,” the company announced via the Fortnite Competitive, Twitter account. “Due to the limitations of cross region online competition, there will not be a Fortnite World Cup in 2020.”

Meanwhile, Valve and the Defense of the Ancients team are postponing The International due to travel concerns due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The International main event was set to run Aug. 18-23 in Stockholm, Sweden. “We have been exploring various date possibilities, but it is likely that the event will need to happen in 2021,” the company said in a blog post. “Given the highly volatile landscape for local gathering restrictions, virus trajectory, and global travel policies, we don’t expect to have enough confidence to communicate firm dates in the near future.”

Also going fully online this year will be EVO, the biggest fighting game events in the world, which was set to return to Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas starting July 31. “The health and well-being of our community is our highest priority,” the Evo team announced in a statement Friday. “We hope everyone stays safe during this time.”

All DreamHack Starcraft 2 Masters and DreamHack Warcraft 3 Open stops of 2020 will be moved online, including the previously-announced stops at DreamHack Valencia, DreamHack Summer, DreamHack Dallas, DreamHack Rotterdam, and DreamHack Montreal. DreamHack is working together with ESL on a redesigned ESL Pro Tour for both Starcraft 2 and Warcraft 3 which is soon to be revealed for fans.

The American PUBG Mobile Pro League is now locked in to run from June 6-28 in an online-only format. “In order to ensure the safety of everyone, which is of paramount importance to us, we have decided to completely reimagine the first season of the PMPL Americas as an online competition”, said James Yang, Director of PUBG MOBILE Global Esports, Tencent Games. “While this has not been a decision we’ve taken lightly, we do think it also generates new opportunities and exciting avenues for teams to gain even more exposure, while enjoying an improved format and quality, with a new exciting twist to it!” The new schedule also sees the introduction of Scrims, giving players and viewers a chance to warm up ahead of the proper season with the American Scrims starting today.

Overwatch League VP Jon Spector served up a state of the league, where he addressed dips in viewership after moving to YouTube from Twitch before this season, noting that the global nature of the league made YouTube a better fit and that the league has seen strong viewership upticks in Asia. “We are not satisfied with where things are today. So, we are working with YouTube to improve discoverability of our content while looking at other changes to build excitement and raise the stakes,” Spector said. “The May Tournament is a good example of a change in response to that feedback. And I’m excited to share that we are a few weeks away from bringing back token drops for watching on overwatchleague.com and our mobile app.”

Collegiate StarLeague unveiled plans to host its 2019-2020 collegiate season finale all online on May 30-31.

STREAM HATCHET TRENDS
Activision Blizzard recently made the move from Twitch to YouTube for all of their esports leagues. While YouTube has been growing their streaming market share, they still remain a distant second to Twitch in total live viewership but have had success streaming esports events. This week, Stream Hatchet analyzes how the Call of Duty League and Overwatch League have performed YoY on each platform.

The Overwatch League had a slight decline of 3.9% in average viewers from their inaugural season in 2018 to the 2019 season; nothing unusual. However, after switching to YouTube, the average viewership plummeted 64% to under 50k viewers.The Call of Duty League realized an opposite effect as it grew 89% on Twitch then 94% on YouTube over the past two years.The growth of the CDL may be partially attributed to its new franchised model (from the CWL to the CDL) and a popular Call of Duty title. The OWL is fighting several battles to retain professional players, fans, and consumers as the switch to YouTube may have accelerated its decline.For more information regarding viewership of platforms and leagues, please contact sales@streamhatchet.com or visit www.streamhatchet.com.

FANAI INSIGHTS
Philanthropic Players

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic
, Twitch streamers are wondering how to get in on the fight against the disease. This week, the top two streams were TheGrefg’s special event, a Fortnite stream with a fundraising focus for COVID-19. The stream raised $100,000. The funds will be donated to the United Nations’ efforts to research the disease and develop a vaccine, as well as supply frontline workers with personal protective equipment.

Notably, the 4th and 5th streams were Grand Theft Auto V, perhaps due to Auronplay’s specific roleplay server and the story he builds on his stream. GTA continues to be a top game due to players continuing to creatively innovate how to play the game. A good example of this is the new war between the “green gang” and “purple gang.” With in-app purchasable skins, players are able to team up with the gang of their choice and wreak havoc on Los Santos. This shows a clear opportunity for brands to build stories in-game with branded skins.

TEAMS
Oxygen Esports unveiled its debut, looking to compete in tier 1, multi-title esports courtesy of strategic mergers between Helix eSports, one of the nation’s leading provider of esports/VR centers, Team Genji, a leading provider of esports analytics and pro rosters acquired from Team Reciprocity. The team announced that titles would include Rainbow Six: Siege, Rocket League, Fortnite, Hearthstone and Magic the Gathering Arena. “We are beyond excited to breathe new life into New England’s esports scene and build on the region’s winning heritage with our championship teams,” said Murphy Vandervelde, a Co-Founder of Helix eSports. “OXG will create the path-to-pro for all of New England esports. We cannot wait to leverage our chain of Helix eSports centers, including our soon-to-be-opened Patriot Place location, to create a hub for content, social and competitive environments across New England’s amateur esports scene.”.”

The Florida Mutineers, of Misfits Gaming Group, are hosting the $25,000 Wrecked Royale charity Warzone tournament, presented by SoFi, with all prize money going to COVID-19 charities. May 13 will see the team join pro athletes that include: Terrell Owens, Ryan Shazier, Mack Wilson, Sheldrick Redwine, Shaq Thompson, James Bradberry, Jedrick Wills, Vernon Butler, and Deejay Dallas to play with pro Call of Duty players and streamers to compete in a one-day Call of Duty Warzone tournament made up of 12 squads of 4. Fans will be able to tune in and watch the tournament live on the Florida Mutineers Twitch channel.

INDUSTRY
With E3 down this year, Geoff Keighley, founder of The Game Awards, announced plans for the Summer Game Fest, described as a four month long run of announcements and news from platforms and game publishers. Major game companies participating include 2K, Activision Publishing, Bandai Namco Entertainment, Bethesda, Blizzard Entertainment, Bungie, CD Projekt Red, Digital Extremes, Electronic Arts, Microsoft (more details coming next week), Private Division, Riot Games, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Steam, Square Enix, and Warner Bros.

ReKTGlobal locked in an investment and partnership with TalentX Entertainment, for a new company titled TalentX Gaming, catered toward personality-driven esports athletes and streamers. “TalentX Gaming is the formation of a unique and dynamic talent management company, combining ReKTGlobal’s esports industry leading position and TalentX’s meteoric and unprecedented success with TikTok content creators,” said ReKTGlobal co-founder and CEO Dave Bialek. “This partnership now affords gaming and esports influencers and athletes with unparalleled support, insights and execution.”

Electronic Arts unveiled financial results for both Q4 2020 and the full fiscal year, topping investor expectations, reporting $1.39 billion in revenues for Q4, and $5.54 billion for their fiscal 2020 to represent a 12% markup over 2019. “We’re humbled to see people around the world connecting through our games during this unprecedented period,” EA chief executive officer Andrew Wilson said. “Thanks to the amazing dedication and determination of our teams at Electronic Arts, we’re able to deliver the games, experiences, and content choices that our players are looking for during this challenging time.”

Activision Blizzard posted its own earnings, reporting Q1 revenue of $1.79 billion, with in-game net bookings up 21% to $1.52 billion for the period. “Activision Blizzard exceeded its first-quarter outlook, driven primarily by our investment in creative and commercial initiatives for Call of Duty delivering better-than-expected results throughout the quarter,” said Activision Blizzard. “We also saw continued momentum for World of Warcraft and better-than-expected results for other key franchises, as populations sheltering at home turned to our content for entertainment and social connection. These trends have continued so far in the second quarter, with business momentum accelerating further in April.” The company also upgraded its outlook for the year ahead, increasing its revenue expectations from $6.45 billion to $6.8 billion.
