Overwatch League results: Fuel and Dynasty put on a show

Overwatch League

Overwatch League is the company's big esports initiative, and its first season kicks off today.

On Tuesday, Activision Blizzard announced a two-year deal to stream Overwatch League matches on Twitch. It'll be a long time until Overwatch true potential as a spectator sport is fully understood, but one thing is already certain: Overwatch League's opening day was popular indeed. This treatment does not include transmission rights, but technological development and commercialization.

The games will be broadcast on Amazon's Twitch, in addition to OverwatchLeague.com, MLG.com, the MLG app, and the new Overwatch League companion app. You'll be able to dress your character in skins for each Overwatch League team.

Los Angeles is the only city represented by two OWL teams, the L.A. Valiant adorned in black, green and gold as well as the L.A. Gladiators in white, purple and black.

BlizzardPlayers can now pay to buy team skins to support their favorite "Overwatch" League team. New team skins plus a host of new updates have been released, as indicated in the "Overwatch" patch notes for January 10.

US House of Representatives Passes Bill Renewing FISA Surveillance Program
Trump's tweets on surveillance marked the second time this week that he appeared to veer from the administration's position. The White House's efforts to portray Donald Trump as a fully engaged, compos mentis president hit a speed bump on Thursday.

Blizzard have hinted at the team being more available on their home turf in future seasons, which should help with the disconnect fans of the three teams not based in North America: Seoul, Shanghai and London. He has "managed the team's day-to-day operations since then, signing players, negotiating initial marketing deals and launching the brand" (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 1/10). Take-Two Interactive Software is building its own esports league for its National Basketball Association 2k series, and high Overwatch League viewership would likely bode well for its own ability to lure new investors and ad dollars, for example. You'll get 100 free Tokens if you log in to the game before February 13, but after that you should expect to pay a bit of cash to show your team spirit.

Thankfully, the final match of the night between Dallas Fuel and Seoul Dynasty was a lot more exciting.

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.

New York Excelsior, a team whose roster is made up entirely of Korean players and therefore wouldn't have encountered the sort of language barrier that dissuaded Houston from seriously considering Geguri, similarly decided that she just doesn't fit their current goals.

Another important function of the Blizzard Arena, Kaplan said, is the ability to have complete control over the broadcast experience of its games.
