On an autumn Sunday before a Patriot’s game, you won’t find Tom Brady coming through the front entrance to get onto the field. You won’t find him in any of Gillette Stadium’s public restrooms taking a leak at half time. In fact, unless you are part of a very small and select cadre of people, you probably won’t see him…
Tracer is probably one of Overwatch’s most fun heroes to play. The way she can manipulate time and zip around maps, darting behind enemy lines and catching the other team off-guard, is a perfect example of what makes Blizzard’s game a different kind of competitive shooter.
It’s finally fall, and as if there weren’t already enough games coming out to play, there’s plenty of big things going on in competitive gaming to watch. This weekend, Europe will crown a Hearthstone champion to send to BlizzCon later this season, and a slew of Chinese Dota 2 teams will compete to see who gets to farm…
League of Legends publisher Riot Games announced major changes to their revenue structure today, addressing concerns waged against Riot by esports figureheads last month.
Virtus.pro went on to win the entire tournament, but before they could do that, Filip “NEO” Kubski had to help get his team through the semi-finals against Team Dignitas.
Today, Virtus.pro swept a two game series against Cloud9 to win the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive finals at the DreamHack Open in Bucharest. The all-Polish team appeared all but unstoppable, defeating the Americans 16-9 on both the first map, Train, and the second, Cobblestone.
Imagine it’s the end of the month. The new NBA season is about to start just days later, but right before that, a majority of the Los Angeles Lakers’ owners decided to cut their losses with the team and sign a new one. With a once proud legacy firmly in the rear-view mirror, they’d had enough. New blood was needed.
It feels like only yesterday I was sitting down to embark on Hearthstone’s latest adventure, One Night in Karazhan. Just over a month later and the scene is completely lit. Blizzard announced it would remove 45 cards from the game’s arena mode to try and restore some semblance of balance to the otherwise rigged…
“ByuN” Hyun Woo took home just under $35,000 after winning the GSL (Global StarCraft League) Season 2 finals earlier today in South Korea. You can watch him almost completely dominate his hot-shot opponent, Kim “sOs” Yoo Jin, across five separate matches below.
It also helps when your fiancé was one of the greatest StarCraft players ever. Oh, and if you are a famous celebrity in your own right, too. Both pluses!
League of Legends earned publisher Riot Games $1.6 billion in revenue last year, but a public debate between community leaders is shedding light on how the game’s competitive players are financially vulnerable. Arguing over who deserves blame, Riot Games’ co-founder and a prominent League of Legends team owner are…
Each year the very best Pokémon video and trading card game players meet at the World Championships to determine who the top trainers are, and each year the Masters (oldest) Division looks really awkward on stage. This year did not disappoint.
Overwatch’s first major international tournament was held over the weekend in Cologne, Germany. Hosted at Gamescom, Europe’s largest games trade show, the ESL Overwatch Atlanta Showdown saw competition from eight pro teams. With a prize pool of $100,000 in the balance, professional players busted out their best…
As time has passed, coaches have become increasingly invaluable parts of pro Counter-Strike teams. During matches, some keep track of strategies, monitor the in-game economy, and call plays. Valve has decided this doesn’t gel with their goals for Counter-Strike.
If you’re not sitting at home on a lovely Saturday afternoon watching TBS, at least you can watch the observer feed of ELeague Counter-Strike: Global Offensive championship showdown between Fnatic and Virtus.pro online.
