New Esports League, World Showdown of Esports is Coming
ESP Gaming has announced today that a multi-genre esports tournament series is coming in the form of “World Showdown of Esports”. WSOE will feature fight card-style matches, showcasing the best games, players, and teams from around the globe. The first of these events, WSOE 1 will take place at the PokerGo Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The first ever WSOE Champion will be crowned here, and to celebrate it, WSOE, in partnership with Auzom will present a special live event, the PUBG Pan-Continental, broadcast live on Twitch July 13-15, from the PokerGo Studio. Special guests from Team Vitality, Team Envy, OpTic Gaming, Tempo Storm and more will compete in PUBG.
What makes WSOE interesting is that it will focus on the drama and spectacle of head-to-head competition between the worlds best players, across a host of genres and games from mobile, PC and console. They take their inspiration from boxing and mixed martial arts, and will crown champions in several competitive divisions. Uniquely in the world of esports, and unlike
round-robin or bracket-style esports competitions, the WSOE’s “fight card” style presentations will feature compelling matchups of champions and challengers going head-to-head in every event. Also featuring innovative prizing and production elements designed to reward aggressive gameplay and foster rivalries, the WSOE’s bouts will offer fans the most entertaining broadcasts in competitive gaming. More information will be available soon, but it should be a very interesting approach to esports in general.
“ESP Gaming is bringing a new type of esports tournament to the gaming community that ensures every single match is a must-see event featuring top competitors in a drama-filled showdown,” said ESP Gaming president, Jeff Liboon. “The WSOE will highlight the most compelling narratives in competitive gaming driven by the very essence of what makes traditional sports so popular, the players. The WSOE will represent what gamers really love about esports with the intensity turned up to the max.”
