Fortnite Is Far Better Than Overwatch

  • Since its debut in January, the Overwatch League has largely looked the role of a significant professional sports league. The broadcasts are more ESPN compared to Twitch, with slick graphics and engaging fortnite weapons, serving the existing committed Overwatch viewers, while also easing in new audiences. There are various camera angles designed for spectators, and maps as well as replays that help create a better comprehension of the overall battle.

    For the finals, all of this was on display, but for a far bigger audience. The Twitch stream gained more than 300,000 concurrent audiences during the two matches, while the finals were also broadcast on ESPN. Blizzard states that 22,434 individuals took in the contest live in New York. As soon as the London Spitfire finally raised the trophy after a dominant performance, it felt like a momentous occasion.

    More relevant for Fortnite, the game's largest rival, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds put on a major e-sports tournament of its own. And while Fortnite may have jumped before PUBG in terms of popularity, the event in Germany revealed that it definitely lags behind when it comes to the e-sports seeing experience.

    For audiences at home, there were map overlays that showed where the numerous teams were hiding out, along with multiple camera angles that made it possible to observe when players got close to each other and a skirmish was going to break out. A constant scoreboard also made it feasible to see who was standing and that had the most points at any given moment. As a casual PUBG viewer, I was still able to take in the competition and understand exactly what was happening. More News was a fantastic series and also one which was quite global; China's OMG held off Team Liquid to take home the grand prize, and there were aggressive teams from Korea, North America, Europe, and elsewherewith a reasonable shot of winning.
