It’s been a busy week in week in eSports. We take a look back at the most important events in two of the largest games in the world – DotA 2 and LoL. Have fun with our DotA 2, LoL eSports News 2017 Week 4 update.
The official band of casters for League of Legends is prohibited by Riot Games to monetize their streams and other related content. If a caster does stream, the session features no donation or subscription tabs. Likewise, any original video content created by a caster is released to the public without any advertisements. Mitch “Krepo” Voorspoels, former Support and current caster/analyst for the European League Championship Series (EU LCS), is the first to break away from these chains.
Taking to Twitter a few days ago, Krepo announced that the “Subscription” button has returned to his stream and viewers can once again donate if they want to. Considering the rules and regulations placed by Riot Games, it was thought that perhaps Krepo had parted ways with the League of Legends developer.
However, that doesn’t seem to be the case. During his stream, Krepo confirmed that he had renegotiated his contract with Riot Games. He also mentioned that he had to make some “sacrifices” to get back the Subscription and Donation buttons on his stream. No further details have been released to the public so far.
The Big Ten Network and Riot Games are teaming up for a 12-team League of Legends tournament from Jan. 30 to Mar. 27, 2017. The championship circuit will be broadcasted on BTN2Go and the League of Legends esports website. The finals will be televised live on the Big Ten Network.
The BTN tested the viability of a foray into League of Legends with the BTN Invitational in 2016. The event featured a rivalry match between Ohio State and Michigan State at Pax East in Boston. In addition to Michigan State and Ohio State, fellow Big Ten schools Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Northwestern, Purdue, Rutgers, and Wisconsin will be included in the season.
Evil Geniuses won their first tournament for the calendar 2017 and avenged OG for eliminating them from the Boston Major. The final will also be remembered as the longest one in Dota 2 history due to some technical difficulties causing a delay of several hours. But at the end of the day, Evil Geniuses claimed victory and gained nearly $63 000 in winnings, along with the trophy for DotA Pit League Season 5.
Dota 2 Asia Championship this week has announced the dates and the teams for the regional qualifiers. With only four teams invited and with the China qualifiers decided, DAC announced the official dates for the Regional Qualifiers.
Scheduled to start on February 3rd, four regions will have to battle during a ten-day marathon for a single spot/region in the main event. For America, the situation isn`t comfortable at all. Big names such as Digital Chaos, Team NP and compLexity will play against each other for the ticket to the main event. The games will be hard and full of hype because all eight teams crave this shot.
Also, in this event, two new teams will make their debut, after the “Spring Reshuffle,” WanteD and OnyX. Both the teams will have to prove that their new line-ups are strong enough to face all the challenges.
The Europe Qualifiers are also perilous with almost every team from this region having rebuilt their line-ups, so this competition will be crucial to see how their new rosters are functioning. Probably the most unbalanced region is SEA. With great names like TnC Gaming and Fnatic as well as the underdog teams have a chance just as TnC Gaming managed to make their way to the WESG podium, claiming first place.
