  3. Yo Gary first off love your stuff. Kinda comedic sometimes tbh. But you talked about the best platform for esports. But what do you think is the best route for streamers/gaming content producers? You know with all the contract moves with streamers people are moving away from Twitch. Just wondered what your insight was!! Thanks!

  4. Elephant in the room…… Game developers have all the power and are the only ones who can even create or allow others to create a league or make money off their IP.

  5. Do you think the eSports infrastructure that Activision Blizzard is putting into eSports, with the Overwatch League, has potential?

  6. Even if e-sports becomes a huge thing, not everyone who spends 8 hours a day of their youth doing it will make a single buck. Am hoping these parents are prepared to pay for therapy for those kids, because there won't be spin-off careers like ball-boys, trainers, etc. like there is in real life sports. Most likely outcome is that more of them go postal like the kid in Florida did.

  7. Call of Duty is never going to blow up again, it's been over a decade and hasn't innovated. Fortnite BR blew up because it was the most accessible BR game to casual gamers when most BR games such as PUGB were too hardcore (steep learning curve), all it took was the Ninja/Drake event to raise awareness. Call of Duty is just a staple now, it's never going away but it's never going to be king. The only FPS that's innovative and popular is Apex Legends but it's not as accessible as Fortnite, but with time it's only going to grow because it's the best BR out there and people are slowly adapting to it.

  8. I know that Overwatch has done it worldwide, League of Legends in China and it also seems like CoD in the US. Do you think something so internetbased, so based on the players and brand and very little about physical world location, can long term work as "city based". Like Minnesota Rokker, as an example. Compared to Fnatic, Team Liquid, SKT, G2.

    Basically, do you think branding on physical world location has brand value? And in what way?

    Reply

  9. You jumped the gun on the last question, NO there will not be another CoD league (short term). BUT as we're already seeing with Epic Games and Fortnite, they encourage community and third party hosted tournaments. You're semi right but I doubt an actual league forms that isn't directly operated or connected with the publisher. For esports, Riot Games will take over the next 5-15 years with their new games and leagues. Epic's way of community run tournaments will not become the norm for atleast another 25 years if it even does.

  11. Gary… About the only time I've ever had a question to ask without already knowing what you'd say to me. What's your view on the new trend of Physical Esports??

    Reply

  12. I love this! It's so good.
    I think with the guy thinking he ruined his sons future, I think he is too focussed on becoming a player when that is a small part of Esports in general. Yes, it can make the big bucks, but there are so many other people in the background as well, coaches, event managers, IT, marketing. So he can still do it… hell he can even setup his own Esports company maybe!

    Gutted you didn't invest in Overwatch, that's my game!
    Do you play the games at all?

    What do you feel about developers restricting leagues? Like Blizzard has made it impossible to create any real league around Overwatch.

    Just gold as always Gary, love it!

  13. I wish I had known about you in my twenties. I could have at least consumed right content on internet. But its never late. Now I am 36 and I feel like in next 4 years I am gonna definitely achieve something. Now I am not wasting my time at all. Using every minute of it. Thank you @Gary for inspiring millions on us.

  15. The more time goes on the more i doubt in e sports. My main problem with it is viewership experience. Everyone can appreciate and understand how hard it is when a football player plows through 3 guys one after another, or when a golfer gets a hole in one. I play overwatch at a very high level, ending some seasons in top 500. But even when i watch the pros playing there is some stuff i barely keep up with. I have friends who play overwatch casually, and almost all the time i go "OH DAM" but they're silent not understanding what happened.
    When it comes to football there are tons of viewers who are watching who dont play football, because they can at least understand whats going on. Everybody understands body movment. But if you dont play overwatch you would be absolutely lost watching pros play. I dont see e sports being profitable in the same way the nfl is. The nfl makes money though the viewers watching ads. But these gaming companies are pouring tons of money into pool prizes and tournaments, because they look at it as an advertisement to the viewer. Its widely known that most of these teams (even ones that cover multiple games) are not very profitable. Players get paid salaries, but the team brand itself usually struggles (expect for south Korea teams). At the moment almost all the growth you're seeing being covered in the media is a result of companines pouring tons of money into a game with the intention of advertising the game. Not becuase so many people are watching it that the ad revune makes the sport itself profitable. Fortnite e sports 2019 cost over 100 million for epic games (owner of fortnite), yet the world cup had less than a million viewers… the nfl doesnt have pool prizes, and teams buy their own stadiums. The nfl grew on its own, however e sports is being forced to grow.

  21. My takeaway is that "consumer centric" businesses have the advantage over profit based businesses.
    I really appreciate businesses that go out of their way to prove to the customer that they are more than just profit.

  27. I don't know if you will see this, Gary, but I think you should reach out to Devin Nash (twitch streamer and analytics guy). It would be a super interesting collaboration

  28. We often can't understand the next generations, because we somehow stop learning at some point, we don't try new things and we feel comfortable with the world how we learned it and think this is the only truth!
    The future will change a lot, and the more old jobs will disappear, the more people might realize they need to learn every day!
    The world still loves to keep things slow, but technology will move people faster and faster, and maybe it is already too fast for many of the older generations. Thanks Gary, for teaching people the future! 🙂

  29. OWL is literally in the middle of bombing over following the strategy you laid out here. Esports absolutely has won, but probably not like this.

    You and many others, imo, are making the mistake of comparing esports and sports too closely.

    LoL and CS:GO are the most successful current games. Succeeding on pure clout and effective tournament structure, respectively.

    There are a couple reasons we can't emulate the sports recipe in esports.

    Firstly, there is NO PHYSICAL RESTRICTION ON PRACTICE HOURS. Genuine aspiring pros practice 8 hours a day minimum. Usually more. That means that the kids who are really going to make it are going to drop out of high school or college. They don't have recovery time they can spend studying. So tying scouting to those systems won't work.

    Also worth nothing that the nation wide competitive ladders we have access to through the internet are already a great environment for scouts to operate in, so the HS/college system isn't ideal.

    Secondly, effective practice in esports requires competitive environments with other top teams. You aren't just building muscles. You need to practice how you respond to situations that other pro teams will actually put you in. This makes it far more sensible to centralize the competition. Like how LoL runs everything in NA out of LA. It doesn't matter how good the NY team is if they're miles away from everyone else and don't have access to good practice. They'll lose in the end every time. And that kind of clear advantage will damage their following for decades.

  37. There's a lot of natural talent that goes into being a pro gamer. If you can't reach the top level of a game within a year, you should stop trying to go pro.

  38. Pop culture celebrities may have pushed the popularity of Fortnite but the big esports such as League of Legends, Dota, and CS GO already established their platforms years beforehand and were lightyears ahead of the games in the battle royal genre.
    These games caught the eyes of big time investors like Rick Fox and others long before the Drake and Ninja event.
    Its really streaming platforms such as Twitch, Youtube, and own3d that brought these games to their prime fanbase and revealed the esports phenomenon

  39. I think this one is very disingenuous, you can count the number of people who really made it in E Sports on your fingers it’s much harder to make it statically than getting into the NFL

  41. There's no chance for COD league. The audience isn't there. The people playing/watching cod moved to mobas, Fortnite, PubG, Overwatch, etc. Counter Strike has also taken the market of CoD as it's surged in popularity. Right now, MW has 5k viewers on Twitch. Not even a top 30 category. Only 2 high tier orgs joined(Faze and Optic).

    And high tier competitive gaming has already moved on from consoles to PC as well.

    I guess we'll find out next week, but im expecting it to be D.O.A.

  44. I was not aware you were investing in Call of Duty or eSports in general. I had the upmost respect for you prior to this, and this makes the respect level doubled. I've been saying that eSports would easily be the next thing above the NFL since 2013… No one realized it and they thought I was legitimately crazy, including my parents. It's amazing to see the traction it has picked up and the amount of people on boarding over the years. Unfortunately, viewership used to be immensely higher for Call of Duty, so I'm really hoping what you were saying about it's viewership going to rise in the upcoming years, I'm really hoping that's true.

  48. I don’t like esports organizations long term.. it’s not like traditional sports and in the end the “teams” have no leverage.. the players and influencers have ALL the leverage in esports I see almost none of these gaming org teams actually making money and almost all the investors will lose $$$

    As an advertiser why would I work with the “team” when I can go direct to the influencer (or 10) with the audience.

    The ROI of being a Call of Duty league sponsor is terrible compared to giving that $$ direct to an influencer. The best influencers already aren’t on pro teams and as more PRO gamers figure out they have all the leverage and a organization offers them no value it’s going to be bad for orgs… HUGE bubble in esports orgs right now

  49. Gary I noticed you wore a team liquid hoodie a few months back. I really don't think it's gonna be call of duty bro. Clash Royale is where it's gonna be. In it's second year, that free e-sport mobile app made a billion in rev. Call of duty isn't native to mobile, which is where we are going. Not to mention, Team Liquid has Clash Royale players. Give it a few years. But right now, it's crushing hard

  52. I watched this whole video bc I was highly intrigued. I am a gamer and still play games today(not as much) but I played cod when I was young with my brother prolly 13+ years ago and it is still on the up today with the remake of modern warfare. There will be another. Also gamers know how to adapt to how the game is being played depending on new things added to the game or other players in public games getting better. I don’t think your players will need to be cycled how you say bc most gamers will change their play styles based on the meta of the current state of the game. With add ons or new maps, etc. The meta of all games are always changing and I think as gamers we enjoy that and we are very good at changing slightly enough to still be in the win column.
