Due to the normalization of gaming and the internet (along with technological advances) the real surge of esports came in the noughties. It was then that we began seeing what we now know to be modern-day esports. As streaming platforms such as Twitch and YouTube took off, people began to show interest in not only playing videogames but watching them too. Popular tournaments now sell out stadiums and professional players (like Ninja) can earn millions between prize money, advertising and salaries.
A further 16 games will take place on Week Two this week starting with Washington Justice facing London Spitfire in what is now a must-win game for the current Champions, who then also face a tough second game later in the week when they take on the as-yet undefeated Huangzhou Spark in the first of four games on Sunday. Other key matches include a double-header for New York Excelsior against Los Angeles Valiant and then the winless Houston Outlaws, while the Philadelphia Fusion will hope to continue their positive start against the Florida Mayhem and the Dallas Fuel. At the other end of the table, the luckless Shanghai Dragons will continue their search for their first win in the Overwatch League after going all of last season without a win, as they have just one game this week against the Boston Uprising.
