Overwatch League viewership on Twitch exceeds 400000 on the first day

Overwatch League

"Overwatch" players can now stream a league game whenever one goes live, using the new Overwatch League menu option, as Blizzard listed out in their forum post. London Spitfire's team, for example, is owned by esports powerhouse Cloud9 and all the players are South Korean. Twitch and Overwatch League officials declined comment.

Other team owners in the 12-team league include the Kraft Group, which also owns the NFL's New England Patriots, Comcast Spectacor, the owner of the Philadelphia Flyers, and Jeff Wilpon, the son of New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon. With the league focused on just this one game, Overwatch oversaturation is real a possibility. The Valiant and the Gladiators dominated San Francisco Shock and Shanghai Dragons with 4 to 0 victories.

Trump's Uneven National Anthem Performance Fuels Dementia Fears
President Trump is the oldest person to be elected president in US history, and his memory has often been called into question. There was no such kneeling protest before the game as college players remain in their locker rooms during the anthem.

Overwatch League does involve a number of big esports superstars, as well as big investors behind each of the teams, and it promises the kind of worldwide action that competitive fans have been waiting for. You can peruse the Overwatch League's schedule here. You can catch up with the matches on the Overwatch League Twitch channel, and I've popped a couple of highlights below. During the incredible Seoul Dynasty and Dallas Fuel match, commentator Christopher "MonteCristo" Mykkles jokingly pointed out how the crowd was chanting "USA!" for a team that only has one American player. See what both teams had to say about the keenly contested match in the two videos below.

While other teams in the league need to feel each other out a bit, these two teams know exactly what the other is all about, and we saw some very high level play. In response to the query, the game director said, "Blizzard World and the new loot box items release early this year". OVERWATCH, OVERWATCH LEAGUE, BLIZZARD and BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT are trademarks of Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. However, the matches taking place in China will not be broadcast through Twitch. Key events that may have been missed are replayed nearly instantly, while each match is followed by a highlight reel and a deconstruction of each round's key moments by the League's presenters. Skins are available for all 12 teams, and all 26 Overwatch characters, with 50% of the revenue from every Overwatch League skin sold going toward a shared revenue pool for all league teams.
