For additional longer-form esports news plus jobs, a team directory, glossary, calendar and data, check out our new esports hub updated daily: http://cynopsisesports.com.

 
Today will see Collegiate StarLeague undergo an overhaul that includes a rebrand that features a new logo and visual identity as well as a new classification system for players as the company prepares for season 11. CSL now features over 1,800 participating universities with 55,000 active players. The new season, however, will now feature player levels known as The StarLeague (Varsity/Competitive) and the Open League (Casual and Social), instead of Divison 1 and Division 2/3 with games set to include League of Legends, Dota, CSGO, Fortnite, Street Fighter V, Madden, Hearthstone, Rocket League, Overwatch, Super Smash Bros. Melee & Ultimate, and more.
 
“We are excited to launch our updated branding for CSL! The rising importance of collegiate esports for the development of the overall competitive gaming ecosystem is in full evidence, and CSL is in a lead position to provide and deliver the appropriate collegiate leagues, on-campus events, programming and content, building paths for aspiring players as well as building and supporting careers in the business of esports,” said CSL CEO and GM Wim Stocks. “ We are proud of CSL’s accomplishments as one of the leaders in collegiate esports, we believe our new branding properly reflects our stature and position in this exciting realm of ours.”
 
COMPETITION AND VENUES

 
DreamHack opened a new partnership with Nintendo of Europe, which recently announced a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate European Circuit. Competition will now take place across seven events around Europe — including DreamHack Winter, DreamHack Leipzig, and DreamHack Summer — culminating with a grand final.
 
Meanwhile, DreamHack also announced an extension with Elmia, the venue owned and operated by the Municipality of Jönköping, Sweden, to keep DreamHack Summer and DreamHack Winter festivals at Elmia in Jönköping through 2022. “It feels great to have come to an agreement with Elmia, ensuring that DreamHack Summer and DreamHack Winter festivals stay where they belong over the coming years,” says DreamHack co-CEO Marcus Lindmark. “The people of Elmia, and all of Jönköping, have always been great partners, welcoming gamers from all over the world to their city and supporting us as best they can, in whatever way they can.
 
Riot Games mapped out plans for the League of Legends 2019 All-Star Event, which will once again take place at the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas from Dec. 5-7.

Meanwhile, IEM Katowice locked in its framework for CS:GO with a 16-team tournament that will once again be held in Spodek Arena in Katowice, Poland and taking place from Feb. 28 -March 1 with a $500,000 prize pool. Ten teams will receive direct invitations while six will be determined via regional qualifiers. “Here in Katowice we do not only remember but also make espo rts history. This Intel Extreme Masters will be very special in that respect,” said Michal Blicharz, Vice President of Pro Gaming at ESL. “When it first took place in 2013 it started the era of esports mega tournaments. Now, a new era starts for us with the first ever Masters Championship of the ESL Pro Tour.”
 
The Overwatch League is down to two for its second season, as playoff action has seen the Vancouver Titans and San Francisco Shock emerge as last teams standing for the sold-out Grand Finals in Philadelphia on Sept. 29. The event will be livestreamed on Twitch in 190 countries and broadcast on ABC from 3–6p on Sept. 29. The match will also be available on the ESPN app, overwatchleague.com, and the Overwatch League app.
 
BLAST unlocked its newest CS:GO competitive circuit, titled the BLAST Premier for 2020, dangling $500,000 for winners of each of the two Season Finals, with a grand prize of $1,000,000 for the 2020 Global Final. Total prizing for the series will hit $4,250,000. The tournament series will be played with both a spring and fall season, starting with 12 teams in three groups, with a week of matches per group.
 
Gears Esports mapped out more of its esports plans for players of all skill levels from around the world to compete for more than $2 million worth of prizing. The 2019-2020 season will be divided into four quarters, each capped off with a major international event.

Top teams in North America, Europe and Latin America will also have the opportunity to qualify for the Gears Pro League.
 
2K is shoring up the competitive opportunities for NBA 2K20, announcing – in partnership with the NBA, the National Basketball Players Association and ESL – the NBA 2K20 Global Championship. Dangling than $100,000 in prizes, the event is designed for aspiring NBA 2K20 players worldwide and will feature head-to-head competition in a series of online and offline events that will take place from October 2019 to February 2020.

SailGP entered the esports arena with the launch of eSailGP – in partnership with Virtual Regatta and World Sailing – allowing fans to experience the world’s fastest sail racing in a virtual environment. Virtually, the eF50s will match the look and performance of the real vessel, capable of breakneck speeds in the 50-knot range (60 mph/100 kph) on courses mirroring those used in SailGP. Subsequently, eSailGP will become part of the eSailing World Championship, jointly organized by World Sailing and Virtual Regatta.
 
The United State Golf Association’s upcoming virtual U.S. Amateur Championship esports event will take place this Saturday as part of the WGT at the TCL Lounge at Topgolf in Las Vegas.

The season saw 103,076 players enter the competition, with over 460,000 rounds started with the four remaining players traveling from the USA, Canada, Germany and Brazil (UK citizen) to compete live in the event.

   

 
One of the often under looked sectors of the esports market is racing games. When comparing Lebron James to Faker of SKT can be difficult for brands to understand, the similarities between racing simulator games are one-to-one. Games like Forza, iRacing and many others base their mechanics on actual car telemetry data. This week, Stream Hatchet investigates trends related to the top eRacing titles:
  • The impact of eRacing: esports racing tournaments generated 162.9k H. Watched on streaming platforms like Twitch, YouTube Gaming, and Mixer from March to August.
  • iRacing leads in eRacing market share: Viewers of iRacing competitions generated 71.9k H. Watched in the past six months. That’s 40% of the total eRacing H. Watched.
  • Opportunity for Gran Turismo: While Gran Turismo Sport placed 3rd in H. Watched, GT leads in Avg CCV, indicating an audience that is hungry for content.

PLATFORMS

 
A roster of gaming industry veterans are teaming up to launch VENN, described as a new network launching in 2020 that will feature live studios in New York and Los Angeles, aimed at the core gaming, esports and entertainment audiences. Ariel Horn, the four-time Emmy winning producer that pioneered esports broadcast production at Riot Games and Blizzard Entertainment, and Ben Kusin, former Global Director of New Media at Vivendi Games, unveiled the company, which already landed $17 million in seed round funding from investors spanning multiple industries. The investment round is co-led by BITKRAFT, with other investors that include: Marc Merrill, co-founder of Riot Games; Mike Morhaime, co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment; Amy Morhaime, former head of global esports, Blizzard Entertainment; Kevin Lin, co-founder of Twitch; aXiomatic Gaming; BDMI; YuChiang Cheng, co-founder of World Golf Tour and President of Topgolf Media; Lifeline Financial Group, and Reimagined Ventures, the private capital group of Alec Litowitz.
 
North American high school esports platform PlayVS announced that it had raised $50 million in its Series C funding round. The round was led by NEA and also included Battery Ventures, Dick Costolo and Adam Bain of 01 Advisors, Michael Zeisser, Sapphire Sports, Dennis Phelps, General Partner at IVP, and Michael Ovitz, Co-founder of CAA.
 
Meanwhile, XY Gaming announced a $2.5 million seed funding round co-led by KB Partners and Varga Capital. Funds will also be used to expand the team, create marketing campaigns, partnerships and influencer sponsorships to grow the site, and add new well-known game titles including Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Rocket League.
 
Skillz is working with the International Game Developers Association to provide game developers with new tools to “forge sustainable businesses, by retaining, engaging and monetizing their content.” The mobile esports proponent said the collaboration connects its 30 million registered players and over 20,000 game makers to IGDA’s extant network over 10,000 developer chapters and special-interest groups. Via the new venture, Skillz joins Amazon, Microsoft and Unity among IDGA’s partners, with an eye toward providing resources and support services that can help game makers create the next industry sensation.
 
Twitch added Internet Gaming Database under its umbrella. “Going forward, that means that you will now contribute information to Twitch as well as IGDB and the thousands of apps, services, and websites that are powered by this information,” said IGDB product owner Jerome Richer De Forges in a blog post.
 
TEAMS

 
Call of Duty has now recruited a full dirty dozen with the official announcement that NRG Esports, Rogue, and Luminosity Gaming had all locked in franchise slots for the upcoming city-based league. The other nine cities had previously been announced, including: Atlanta Esports Ventures for Atlanta; Envy Gaming Inc. for Dallas; Misfits Gaming for Florida; WISE Ventures for Minnesota; Sterling VC for New York; c0ntact Gaming for Paris; OverActive Media for Toronto; and Immortals Gaming Club and Kroenke Sports and Entertainment would both own separate franchises in the LA market, similar to how they run the Gladiators and Valiant in Overwatch League respectively.
 
Meanwhile, former OpTic CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriquez announced that he would head over to NRG to serve as co-CEO of the team. The news came shortly after Rodriguez announced his departure from OpTic Gaming and new owner Immortals Gaming Club.
 
Kroenke Sports & Entertainment will now use its own esports front office to manage the Los Angeles Gladiators and one of the upcoming Los Angeles-based Call of Duty teams after mutually parting ways with Sentinels, according to ESPN. The organization had been running the Gladiators, but now the front office is expected to be overseen by KSE executive Josh Kroenke and Michael Neary. According to the report, among potential front-office candidates the two have spoken with is former Echo Fox president Jared Jeffries.
 
Team SoloMid announced plans to start construction on a 25,000-square-foot training center in Playa Vista.

POWER PLAYERS – The Story Mob’s Nicola Piggott.
 
 
The Story Mob released its newest insights into the world of esports with the release of “Beautiful Weirdos: Telling the Stories of Esports Heroes.” Below, Nicola Piggott, co-founder at The Story Mob, broke out key takeaways of the new guide to esports storytelling.
 
Every good sports story starts with passion – and with a human at the center of it all.
 
When it comes to the newest sport of them all – a sport played with keyboards and controllers instead of cleats – we believe that we have the opportunity to completely rewrite the rulebook when it comes to how those stories are told. At The Story Mob, we spend a lot of time thinking about how we can tell stories truly worthy of esports champions – what we learn from traditional sports and what we need to rip up and start again.
 
For those millions of gladiators who roam digital battlefields every day to discover themselves and prove their worth, we owe them nothing less. Here’s our key learnings:
 
Esports pros can fit the sports archetypes….
 
From the hero to the underdog, esports players fit the age-old narratives just as closely and can tell universal stories of struggle and sacrifice.
 
If you’ve taking a friend who’s never played a game in their life, to an esports event, there’s one surefire way to get them cheering along with the crowd, and it’s not teaching them their barons from their minions. Everyone understands a human story – and esports pros train harder, sacrifice more and play with more precision than almost any sportsman in the world.
 
…But if we confine them to the traditional playbook, we’re ignoring what’s so unique about them.
 
Just like digital sports created new innovation in online streaming technology, it’s also brought a new breed of star – a multi-dimensional, quirky, highly relatable superstar that appeals directly to a target audience that has felt wholly unseen and unrepresented in mainstream culture.
 
Whether it’s Cloud9’s Sneaky and his gender-bending cosplay, or pros from different ecosystems sharing their struggles of anxiety and trolling their rivals online, this is an entirely new breed of hero.
 
Esports pros have the ability to be a whole new breed of sportsmen, connecting with and reflecting their fan audience more than any other group in history.
 
This level of celebrity is unprecedented. These sportsmen not only connect directly with the biggest digital audience in history – they are spearheading a cultural movement that show them to the world as heroes and dreamers, not losers or underacheivers.
 
As esports becomes more and more embraced by the mainstream (and traditional sports increasingly reaches out to learn how to hang on to a young audience), it’s vital that we hang on to what made us so powerful. We must allow our esports superstars to be exactly who they are – in all of their multi-dimensional, weird and beautiful glory.
