GenG won their first CSGO LAN at DreamHack Anaheim for $50,000, and a spot at Masters Jönköping with their latest performance against FURIA in a dominant 16-7, 19-15 game.

Gen. G came in as a challenger to DreamHack Anaheim, but left the champions with its first title this weekend in the newly built North American roster.

The hopes came across a tough group of ENCE, MIBR and Complexity without losing a map before heading to North in the semifinals to match the current top performers, FURIA in Brazil.

In the final DreamHack Anaheim against FURIA, s0 m was the star for Gen. G. The series.

Beginning with the Nuke map range from FURIA, Gen. G was quick to get a three-round lead out from its CT side of the walls. FURIA never came out, however, with a defensible target of 5 rounds on their T hands.

Nonetheless, a further electrifying start by Gen. G snuffed the hopes of South America out. When FURIA tried to build on its CT half at 14-7, Kenneth ‘ koosta’ Suen put a crazy 1:4 post-plant seal on the map in order to ruin the economy of FURIA.

Sam’s’ s0 m’ Oh was rock firm, both attack and defensive, holding A’s while selecting 26 kills on the map at a rating of 1.55 on Nuke.

Gen. G maintained the momentum on its own Inferno selection. Although they lost the first round on the T side, having an institution gave them the economy to flee with half.

FURIA could never combine more than two rounds at the same time leaving their economy half-strapped and North Americans took advantage of it. Clean performances ensured that Gen. G had a cool lead in the half and nearly packed the game.

FURIA started however during its own half to swing things around. They began to mount a return, bringing it back to just one round, after five of the first six-round for themselves.

Henrique’ HEN1′ Teles almost managed to bring him to a 1v3 clutch even at 11, but IGL Daps ‘ Steele of Gen. G stabilised the ship, leading it to victory.

But without rough waters, FURIA didn’t let it go. After Gen. G had three points in the match, the Brazilians forced back-to-back overtime with two 2v2 clutches.

This was, however, where the fire was ignited. Gen. G nailed four rounds in succession for Masters Jönköping and booked the map 19-15, the title of the DreamHack Anaheim.

They were standing, joyfully booing, booting and boozing. It turns out that New York esports fans don’t vary a lot from their traditional sports fans.

The Overwatch League’s hypothesis has been confirmed by these sponsored fans, who filled an almost 2,000-seater arena across the road from Madison Square Garden.

Jon Spector, vice president of the professional video gaming network, said: “This is all we could have hoped for.”

The OWL opened their third season in February with franchising matches in New York and Dallas, and it seemed like a payoff from the shows of the resurrected players that could be driven to the top of a thriving market by a multinational town-based system.

Both festivals were the first of 52 home-and-out events to bring competitions to 20 venues throughout Europe, North America and Asia. There has not been such a difficult professional league— sports and other things.

The League claims it has taken appropriate action to realize burnout in the stars of its six against six first-person shooter computer game, which earn an average of more than $100 000 a season, while many fans are concerned about their wellbeing — some are still teenagers.

Of note, this world-trotting journey is always an experiment the OWL always readily admits.

The upside of the attempt was evident at the Hammerstein Ballroom in Midtown Manhattan. There were over $100 spent by fans on two-day passes and double-header matches came to force. The squadron was set in four teams–New York, Boston, London and Paris–and fans were almost full for the undercards.

It looked like a traditional, rude crowd of sports — with team gear from the stand, waiting for pizzas and drinks during action lulls, and ruthlessly sniffing off the rival Boston upliftment every chance.

Farzam Kamel, co-founder and Andbox president who run the New York Excelsior, says: “The audience has always been here.”

Blizzard Entertainment was hoping that when it decided to globally misrepresent the global esports trend. OWL-backed by Blizzard believes that the future of the company requires delivering live events to participating partners throughout the year. while other esports, like the decadal League of Legends, have thrived with rootless franchises.

Blizzard started its city project early this year, after staging nearly all of its match in seasons one and two in a facility near Los Angeles. During a 26-week regular season in early August, each franchise will be hosted between two and five weekends of competition.

The League opposed these figures strongly and maintains that its scheduling was flexible enough to keep players fresh.

In mid-January, Paris had players report to team accommodation, which they will use as a base for the beginning of the season. During swings across Europe and Asia, they will get similar set-ups.

The Overwatch League postpones scheduled matches in Seoul for three weeks in the wake of news that Asia is spreading its virus outbreak in South Korea.

In Seoul, in March last month, the League has postponed matches for three cities in China, due to the COVID-19 disease caused by a newly-known coronavirus, infected by tens of thousands of people, mostly in China.

These matches were now postponed, together with previously scheduled Seoul dynasty dates.

“We cancel plans to host OWL 2020 matches in South Korea during Weeks 5, 6 and 7, including in the Seoul Dynasty,” the league said in a statement to protect the health and welfare of our teams, fans and personnel.

South Korea reported on Monday 161 more cases of the virus in the town of Daegu, with the country total at 763 cases and seven confirmed outbreak deaths. “We will share info as to where and when games will take place at a later date.”

It’s the first year of OWL’s world-class programme with host matches in Asia, North America and Europe for its 20 municipal franchises.

The Dynasty is the only South Korean franchise based. On the landmark Dongdaemun Design Plaza the team had planned to host matches from 7-22 March. The next tournaments of the Overwatch League will take place on 9-10 May in Seoul.

The staff of the Activision / Blizzard Esports Division — video game producer — worked towards an objective that they called “Project 2020.” in the last two years or so. The Company had already circled its 3rd 2020 season when it introduced the Overwatch League (OOWL) in 2018.

The new decade represents the beginning of a new era for the League, which aims at playing games in a more conventional “home and away” environment of 20 organisations, from China to London to Vancouver. Over the entire season, some teams travel for more than 50,000 miles.

This isn’t everything. The Call of Duty League, which features 12 opening teams including many of the same cities in North America that play in Overwatch, was first played in 2020.

“Project 2020 really is no longer called by us,” said Pete Vlastelica, CEO of Activision Esports and Overwatch Commissioner. “With regard to Overwatch, the philosophy of the League shifts from an operational role to a support role, providing teams with everything needed to conduct successful events and ensuring that they can market these events properly.’ We call it to work because it’s time to do the thing we designed for the last three years.”

“The exciting part for me is to sit back a bit and watch each team add their own flavour to the mix and produce events and experiences that are a little different than what others across the league are doing,” said Vlastelica.

For example, Toronto Defiant owner Chris Overholt comes from traditional sports backgrounds within the NHL and as Chief Marketing Officer for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics for the Canadian Olympic Committee. “I think there will be a lot of innovation, for example. The ideals of generating passion for fans all apply to sports, he said.

“An Overwatch fan is not a Call of Duty fan is not a League of Legends fan,” said Overholt. The underlying contradictions between the two sides are seen internally as a valuable asset. “These aspects are all distinctly distinct in their own way. Hamilton likened Call of Duty fans to listeners of hip-hop, while Overwatch fans can be contrasted with EDM fans.

Vlastelica has a split audience between the two hemispheres of about 50-50. Thanks to its vivid, colourful, cheerful and cartoonic setting, she said. Topics of inclusion and diversity among the heroes players can choose from are appealing.

In the meantime, Call of Duty was much longer and has a casual fan appeal, as it is easy to watch. Vlastelica sees a future for Activision in two different ways.

I think Call of Duty has this true potential, not just Overwatch, but also most sports games, to become a mainstream sport,” said Vlastelica.

This practice has benefited from collaborations between the Wilpon Family in New York (Mets) and the Wilf Family in Minnenota (Vikings) which have traditional sports backgrounds. Ten of the 12 Call of Duty teams are also overviewed, which made the development of the League more effective, and Activision did not have to build any new employees in place to launch.

“Bringing the Call of Duty team into New York at the same time as the Overwatch League team was really very similar for us,” said Scott Wilpon, co-founderof Andbox, the company owned by the New York Excelsior (OWL) and the New York Subliners (CoD). “The difficulty is just that none of this has ever been achieved before. Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan’s central city was sold out with nearly 1,600 fans during the opening weekend, on 8 and 9 February.

Sixteen of the world’s top CSGO teams will be competing for their share of the $500,000 awards pool at Monday, February 24.

The ESL Pro Tour, the open circuit sponsored by ESL and DreamHack, will have over 20 LAN tournaments by 2020 and will be its first Masters Championship in this area.

The world’s top ten teams will be at IEM Katowice, so there are some fun and close games that are expected during the week. Is Astralis going to defend the title and lift the trophy again? Danes, like Liquid, Fnatic and Evil Geniuses, have to face heavy competition.

Here’s all about IEM Katowice 2020 that you need to know.

The IEM stream https:/www.twitch.tv/esl-csgo is broadcast on two Twitch channels of ESL since simultaneous matches will be broadcast on the platform until the quarter-finals. No action on the main broadcast or the second channel will be missed.

Format The contest lasts seven days, with the grand finals set for 1 March. Sixteen teams will compete for a $500,000 prize pool share, while the Intel Grand Slam champion won one point.

The Intel Grand Slam will be contested for $1 million, and six out of ten consecutive big ESL Pro Tour tournaments, four of ten main events like IEM Katowice, ESL One Cologne or any major organised by ESL or DreamHack. The Intel Great Slam competition involves Liquid, Astralis, EG, Fnatic and mouse games.

Teams is split into two classes and a GSL double-elimination format is included. Apart from the best of five grand finals, the competition will be completely played by Best-of-Three. That category has three top teams advancing to the playoffs that use the one-elimination format. Group stage winners will directly proceed to semifinals and quarter-finals will feature second and third-place teams.

Fortnite draws more participants, viewers, and revenue on its worst day than most other online games. It has a NFL and its own toys alliance. The Masked Singer was his most popular player. Most businesses even want a portion of what Fortnite had won last year in $1.8 billion.

But the free to play game just isn’t the juggernaut that it used to be. Last season fewer people played, leading to a decline in revenue and less viewing hours. If a worthy rival rises, the decline can be worse.

Thursday began Chapter 2 of season 2 with the addition of a theme for the secret agent and a cameo from Marvel Deadpool. Nonetheless, this may not be the blast of excitement the game needs to recover.

The game created unparalleled revenue over the two years Fortnite was involved. Developer Epic Games have developed a strategy to ensure that more and more decisions are made to keep players spending more money.

A large margin dominated Fortnite in 2018.

Revenue from Fortnite was insane in 2018. According to SuperData, research firm, it stood at 318 million dollars in May 2018 alone and amounted to 2,4 billion dollars a year. The battle Royal game was almost one billion dollars more than Dungeon Fighter Online’s next free-to-play title.

Substantial income is mainly derived from in-game cosmetics like trays or masks, emotions focused on renowned dances and other material that tailors player avatar. Some of the cosmetic products can be purchased via a seasonal combat pass, which allows players to access a variety of contents as much as they play. Additional content is available to purchase via the Item Shop for the game.

Epic Games is mostly based on original ideas, but others are based on common characters like John Wick, Batman and Harley Quinn. Epic signals also deals with designing outfits for leading players like Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. Players need to purchase Fortnite’s in-game currency called V-Bucks, which has a conversion rate between 100 and $1, to purchase any of those items.

Epic Games raked in the money for some time. However, in 2019, things changed and the Fortnite train started slowing down. Month after month, in comparison to the previous year, sales for the game decreased. Fortnite was SuperData’s top-earned console game and SuperData published on PC in December 2018.

According to SuperData, Fortnite ended 2019 with revenues of $1,8 billion, down 25% from 2018. The business is always the top source of sales but has a small decline over Dungeon Fighter Online and Honor of Kings, which both earned $1.6 billion in the United States, better known as the Valor Arena.

The digital timeline dominated in 2018 by SuperData Fortnite. Apparently, Drake played with Ninja in the stream and over a half million people were watching it. Fortnite made a crossover with Avengers: Infinity War, the biggest film of 2018, enabling players to play temporarily in a match as Thanos. The online search and streaming game sites were topped.

Nevertheless, this value started to decline in 2019, as did its revenues.

According to the data tracking site SullyGnome, Fortnite was the most-watched video game on Twitch in 2018 for over 1.3 billion hours. After his views fell by 22% in 2019, Fortnite was de-tripped.

The last time around in a winless week, G2 Esports had a healthy dose of reality. Today’s reigning champions began with a clear win over Excel Esports, led by Jungles Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski’s Karthus, on week five of the 2020 LEC Spring Split.

One of the most dominant and versatile champions, Orne, has only fallen into the lap of the G2 mid-line Luka “Perkz” Perković in some way in the second round of bans. Excel selected Vayne for his lane opponent, Son “Mickey” Youngsmin, with their last selection.

Perkz easily pulled Vayne into almost obsolescence with a little support from his jungle. Six minutes later, Jankos got his ultimate blood from Mickey — and three minutes later he did the same again. His demanded job from beyond the grave, which punished Excel’s highly squishy dual-CDA team structure, was easily snowballed.

While Mickey could not achieve his goals in the laning process, in the sometimes one-vs-one circumstances in which he found himself, he showed remarkable duelling abilities. In the end, however, he couldn’t differentiate between G2 and him. Excel could only delay the inevitable, suffering its fifth defeat.

Martin “Wunder” Hansen was dissatisfied with Aatrox’s resistance to G2. Excel’s squishy bursts apart, even without a challenge to an absolute Karthus.

Changes like these will only stipulation Orn tier lists further up, particularly Patch 10.4, which saw essential Immolate boosts, the Bami Cinder passive and, by extension, all things it includes, including the Forgefire Cape, an Ornn unique Sunfire upgrade. At the end of the game, Perkz was almost unturnable. His teammates deliberately hit the tanks for 10 seconds at one time while padding their stats when they drew the fuck out.

G2 enter Misfits Gaming 7-2 at the LEC stage halfway through the group. Tomorrow at 13:00 CT, you will face the upstart MAD Lions.

The company is developing its very own escape programme, as Riot Games quickly grows its game library.

The publisher of League of Legends plans to push a new kernel driver to ensure that the games are equal, the developer announced earlier this month. This driver’s incorporation in games will greatly contribute to the prevention of scams, but some players are concerned that Riot will have to incorporate the personal computers.

While the Anti-cheat programme of League of Legends currently exists at the operating system level and relies on its tools, cheaters find many ways of working against it unknown.

“The problem here is the fact that code in kernel mode can hook up the very system calls we would rely on to retrieve our information and modify the results in ways that we may find legitimate,” Riot said. “That’s why the new anti-cheats driver is working on the operating system itself.”

The abundance of cheats is now more privilege-free than our anti-cheats. Technically, the kernel driver has control over the entire machine, which is an ideal way of making sure the cheating is detected. This is especially troubling given the number of security problems the organisation has had in the past.

“This doesn’t provide us with any surveillance capability we haven’t already had,” the developer said. “We don’t have any monitoring capabilities,” the developer stated. “The purpose of the upgrade is to monitor system integrity (so that we can trust our data) and make it harder for cheaters to get stuck into our games (that you can’t blame goal bots for their personal failures)”

The kernel driver will soon be at the centre of the computer operation. At the end of the day, it is difficult to find why the developer is interested in seeing the personal files of the player. In fact, for AAA developers, it is not a new idea to incorporate anti-cheat drivers too deeply into a programme.

The tournament organiser announced today that both BIG and Copenhagen Flames were invited to FLASHPOINT’s global qualifier in March.

The teams of AVEZ and Skade from Sweden, Chaos and We are North American Orgless, DETONA Gaming and Redemption POA from the United States will enter six teams from the national online qualification teams. The regional training will take place from 3 to 5 March at FACEIT’s Los Angeles office.

Since ESL modified its format and cut the team list in half, BIG was one of the teams that lost their ESL Pro League spot. According to HLTV’s world rankings, in January the German team led by “tabseN” Johannes Wodarz won the DreamHack Open Leipzig, which is now the 25th best in the world.

On the other hand, after qualifying for ESL One Rio Major European Minor, Copenhagen Flames broke into HLTV’s top thirty this week. The squad includes mostly Danish rookies, excluding René “TeSeS” Madsen and Asger “Acilio No” Larsens, former OpTic Gaming players, who were mainly involved in the SK Gaming events of 2015 and 2016. It announced that AcilioN had held talks to replace Nestor “LETN1” Tanić with c0ntact Gaming, a franchise partners of FLASHPOINT.

The regional qualifier FLASHPOINT uses the best-of-three bracket double disposal format with the top two teams advancing into season 1 FLASHPOINT.

FLASHPOINT is the current CS: GO League and the first team organisation. There are currently six franchise partners in the League, including MIBR, Dignitas, Cloud9, c0ntact Gaming, MAD Lions, and Gen. G.

The fight today for first place between Gen. G and DragonX was to be a barn burner with for the first time in 2020 two of the top teams in the Korean League of Legends— and that didn’t deceive.

Gen. G. Gwak “Bdd” mid-laner Bo-seong found his way today and took his team to the top of the LCK table.

After a tricky one of Gen. G, Bdd turned to dominate Zoe and Galio, counting 19 kills between two games. His old Longzhu-self looked like again; he wandered through the map, found picks, and trusted his team.

The inexperience of DragonX has caught them up. They seemed to tip the face of Rift of Summoner after the dubious collection and ban phases.

Yet Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu and Ryu “Keria” Min-seok left much to hope for in the hands of Kim “Deft.” They died eleven times between them, casting off Gen. G’s early bot lane advantage.

After the series today, Gen. G has five winners and one loser on top of the league. The group looks like the Mid-Season Invitational is now promising later in this year. But if you want a fighting chance, you will take T1 down.
On Thursday, Feb. 27, Gen. G will face the Afreeca Freecs for their next LCK series.
