Late on Tuesday, Blizzard announced a two year streaming deal between Twitch and Blizzard's Overwatch League that will see every match broadcast on Twitch's streaming platform. This treatment does not include transmission rights, but technological development and commercialization. Twitch was able to block this deal by paying over $900 million for these broadcasting rights according to the Sports Business Daily first published by VentureBeat. The league has attracted a lot of attention not just because of the quality of Overwatch, the video game, but also because of the reputation of the various team owners in sports such as football, baseball and basketball.
The usual social media channels will be constantly updating too and Blizzard have also released an official Overwatch League app for mobile devices. 12 teams will square off over six-months to figure out which city's collected players deserve the title of best Overwatch team. And just like an NFL, NBA, or Federation Internationale de Football Association fan can buy and wear a jersey showing off their support for a particular team or player, so too can Overwatch players now buy League skins repping their favorite OverwatchLeague team.
The league has two teams representing Los Angeles: the Los Angeles Gladiators, owned by Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke and his 37-year-old son Josh, and the Los Angeles Valiant, owned by Immortals, a Culver City-based e-sports organization. The Valiant and the Gladiators dominated San Francisco Shock and Shanghai Dragons with 4 to 0 victories.
It aims to follow the model of traditional North American professional sports leagues by using a set of permanent teams and regular season play, comparable to the National Basketball Association or NFL.
Along with competing for their share of a $3.5-million prize pool, each player who has a spot on any of the team's rosters is guaranteed a minimum $50,000 salary, health benefits and a retirement plan. Dynasty met their match as they clashed against the Dallas Fuel.
Tomorrow's matches are: London Spitfire vs Florida Mayhem, Philadelphia Fusion vs Houston Outlaws, and Boston Uprising vs New York Excelsior. For just logging into the game, you'll get 100 tokens, redeemable for any one skin.
