2018 began with huge amount of marvelous events and great esports tournaments like revolutionary Overwatch League or ELEAGUE Major 2018.

The Internet significantly accelerated the pace of our live, and Twitch, as the world's largest online broadcast platform, is a living proof of this simple truth. Online broadcasts are unstable, like a pebble in a mountain stream. Let’s see what surprises the first month of 2018 hid from us.
Esports develops rapidly, gaining new viewers, players, teams, organizations are tournaments every month. All of this couldn’t exist without sponsors, who invested millions into the industry to help esports become bigger and better. That is why the news that ESL signed a contract with Facebook didn’t surprise us. In the same time we were frightened by potential problems since online broadcast toolkit of the world’s largest social network is much lesser compare to Twitch.
Counter Strike: Global Offensive is considered to be one of the most popular esports discipline in the world. The biggest advantage in its simplicity — any person, even who is far from gaming, can understand what is this game about and what should players do to win. That is why CS:GO is the first and the only one competitive video game in the world, which has direct contact and cooperation with the US television. ELEAGUE is a best proof of this fact since it works with TBS, a major American television channel.
Dota 2 developers, Valve, announced a new tournament system for the next season during The International 2017. They introduced us to Dota 2 Circuit. If teams want to get a direct invitation to the next The International you have to collect qualifying points all year round. Valve have also announced 22 tournaments with this system in the next season — 11 Majors and 11 Minors. Four months passed since the Dota 2 Circuit started working, we observed 2 Majors and 6 Minors. Let’s look at the statistical results of the new tournament system.
Our service continues to evolve, rapidly building up new functions and capabilities. We do not want to limit ourselves to esports alone because we are interesting in the entire streaming industry. Let's watch which games were the most popular among the viewers on Twitch in October and compare the results with the previous months.
Blizzard is not just some random corporation. It is the brand with a large gaming community, it is a huge army of talented and experienced developers, they are true revolutionaries in the world of computer games. That is why the annual BlizzCon collects so much attention from the world community. BlizzCon 2017 was no exception.
League of Legends is the most popular esports discipline in the history. The annual World Championship can rightly be called the biggest holiday of electronic sports, as it attracts the attention of millions of spectators. The last Worlds for the first time in history gathered more than 100 million viewers online — it is an unprecedented moment for esports.
Esports Charts is on the road to the biggest IT event of the year: the Web Summit! They call it “the Davos for geeks”, but we also thoroughly enjoy the non-business side of it: a massive celebration of tech and gaming culture.
China is a planet inside the planet, a unique country which is almost completely independent of the outside world in culture and economical ways. It occurred primarily because of the huge number of the Chinese nation - there are more than one and a half billion Chinese in China.
