ESL recently signed an exclusive live streaming deal with Facebook for the next one year. The ESL Facebook deal has received a lot of flak since Facebook is generally considered to be a very negative company overall. Despite having a huge playerbase, Facebook has been known to take data from users, have a very bad UI on their app as well as trying to buy into esports without any investment at all into esports.
People predicted the death of Pro League after it went to Youtube, and the most recent finals had record viewership. I encourage everyone to give this the benefit of the doubt and just wait for what the viewing experience will be.
