  • Overwatch League: Twitch snaps up broadcast rights

As per yesterday's streaming partnership news for the Overwatch League with Twitch comes the official kick-off of the first season with 12 teams representing major cities in Asia, Europe, and North America. You have the team you support, the players you like, and the rivals you desperately want to see them beat.

Sports Business Daily report the deal is worth $90m, a substantial chunk of change, although their sources claim this may not all be tied up in broadcasting the Overwatch League, but could speak of further collaboration between the two companies under the same deal. "To regularly go with friends or family to a place and watch your team live is a new frontier for esports, and I think it's really exciting".

The NFL will reduce its presence in London by one game in 2018, from four to three, the league announced Thursday morning. Even the chief executive of England's Football Association pointed out the benefits of having NFL games in London.

Los Angeles Gladiators, Seoul Dynasty, New York Excelsior, London Spitfire, Philadelphia Fusion, Houston Outlaws, Florida Mayhem, Dallas Fuel, Shanghai Dragons, San Francisco Shock, Los Angeles Valiant, and Boston Uprising. Overwatch League has different teams associated with different esports clubs.

Outside of that it appears as though the standalone and phone-based versions of Daydream VR will run the same software. The field of view isn't as wide as something like the PIMAX VR headset , but it's pretty respectable for Daydream.

I heard this line of reasoning a few times throughout the day: now isn't the time to give women players a shot, but someday they will totally be part of the Overwatch League, somehow. The latest addition to Blizzard's stable of twenty-one #1 games, Overwatch was built from the ground up for online competition, with memorable characters and fast-paced action designed for the most engaging gameplay and spectator experiences.

The final match of the day saw Dallas Fuel Vs. Seoul Dynasty. If it's anything like the rush of launch day, the Overwatch League will truly be something special year in, year out.
