ESP Gaming Brings Fight Night to Competitive Gaming with the Introduction of the World Showdown of Esports

ESP Gaming, the world’s premier competitive gaming content creation
company, today announced the World Showdown of Esports (WSOE), a
multi-genre esports tournament series featuring fight card-style matches
that showcase the best games, players and teams across the globe. The
first event in the series, WSOE 1, will take place this fall at the
PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas where the first ever
WSOE Champion will be crowned. To celebrate the announcement, the WSOE
in partnership with Auzom will present a special live event, The PUBG
Pan-Continental, broadcast live on Twitch July 14-15 from the PokerGO
Studio with special guests and players from FaZe Clan, Team Vitality,
Team Envy, OpTic Gaming, Tempo Storm and more competing in
PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG).

The WSOE focuses on the drama and spectacle of head-to-head competition
between the world’s best players from a variety of genres and games
across mobile, PC and console. Taking its inspiration from boxing and
mixed martial arts, the WSOE 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.

“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.”

Veteran esports journalist, former ELEAGUE host and well-known esports
analyst Richard Lewis has joined ESP Gaming as the Director of Talent
and will oversee the on-air personalities for WSOE streaming and live
events. Lewis brings innovative perspectives and unparalleled experience
to esports fans across the world.

“With the WSOE, we’re completely flipping the script on the traditional
esports tournament format in a way that has never been done in
competitive gaming,” said Lewis. “The WSOE’s unique format allows us to
create the matches that competitors and fans want to see and that the
competitors want to engage in. We look forward to re-imagining and
growing the sport of competitive gaming and crowning our first WSOE
Champion this fall.”

WSOE fight cards will be broadcast live from ESP Gaming’s PokerGO
Studio. The 10,000+ square-foot facility gives ESP Gaming unrivaled
esports production capabilities, including the ability to stream live
events for a variety of games while continuing to offer best-in-class
esports content for live and delayed viewing.

The PUBG Pan-Continental, Presented by Auzom and the WSOE, will be
broadcast live on www.twitch.tv/wsoe
from July 14-15, where 16 teams of four players will compete for
$100,000 in cash prizes. Invited teams include top players from the
Auzom Premier League and other world-class PUBG organizations.

More information about future WSOE events, including schedules, rules,
formats and games, as well as participating players and teams, will be
shared soon.
