US-based Allied Esports has introduced an original event series called “Day One”. The innovative new series will celebrate the launch of new game titles on the day they are released to the public. The series started with the debut of Tom Clancy’s The Division® 2 on Thursday, March 14 at HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas.

Each “Day One” event will bring the title’s community together. That is, prominent influencers and fans will play the game for the first time in front of a streaming audience at the very moment it is made available.

“There is nothing like the anticipation around the launch of a new game and ‘Day One’ will take that excitement and deliver an experience, both in-person in Las Vegas and in our stream, that unifies the community in a significant and authentic way,” said Frank Ng, co-CEO of Ourgame Holdings International, owner of Allied Esports. “We look forward to working with publishers like Ubisoft to create a can’t-miss event and must-watch content that generates a powerful buzz and helps drive momentum for their new title.”

The debut of “Day One” will include a roster of influencers whose gameplay will be featured on Allied Esports’ main stream as well as on their respective Twitch channels throughout the night.

Esports Innovator EGENCY Announces Name Change to Abacus3
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

The builder of world-class esports and gaming centers decided to change its name from EGENCY to Abacus3 after the company’s mission and direction evolved. Abacus3’s new focus is to empower students through esports by growing communities on university campuses with its permanent, turnkey solutions and ongoing support.

 

EGENCY, founded in 2018 as a premier esports production, marketing and talent management firm, has announced the company will change its name to Abacus3 effective immediately. EGENCY’s leadership was compelled to choose a new name which embodies their core mission of creating unparalleled esports and gaming centers that empower future leaders to collaborate and create.

According to company President Mark Nausha, “The esports and video gaming space is rapidly changing. The community is always building, growing, and evolving, and we felt we needed to go to market with a name that signifies that we are much more than merely an agency specializing in esports.”

As the company’s leadership team pondered names, Abacus3 rose to the top of the list. CEO Greg Skasko explains why, “We felt it was a very fresh take on a familiar name. The abacus is a basic building block for math, while we provide the building blocks for esports on college campuses—a facility where students can collaborate, innovate and grow. The number 3 also resonated with us because our messaging kept intersecting at three words, in particular, the value we facilitate through competition, career and community.”

Today, esports isn’t just about the competition and how people traditionally think about the industry. As Nausha explains, “It’s a new way people are connecting in communities and socializing. It’s also about giving students and others who utilize esports venues potential career opportunities, whether in esports or not. Our solution helps broaden those communities, connect universities with one another and provides a base framework for the university, in collaboration with Abacus3, to respond to the continual evolution of esports.”

In order to achieve its mission, Abacus3 takes a novel approach to esports community building. The company provides a permanent, turnkey solution that includes the design, building and programming of world-class esports and gaming centers on university campuses.

Unlike traditional venue builders, the Abacus3 solution is funded through strategic brand relationships, which means there is little to no cost to students, the university or its donors. After the infrastructure is built, Abacus3 also provides a general manager to support the facility, along with ongoing marketing, content and programming support. The company is committed to supporting its university partners for the long-term, while providing value to local communities.

“Our goal is to support and empower the college students, but ultimately, everyone will benefit from this. Along with future industry leaders and pro esports players, benefits will also trickle down to the high schools, middle schools and even younger people who can utilize these facilities. By taking this philosophy to universities around the country and around the world, students, pros, universities and the local communities can all benefit,” Skasko says.

Newly-developed technology brings hundreds of matches per day, granting unprecedented interactivity for gaming-savvy audiences.

 

Unikrn, a global leader in esports entertainment and wagering, has innovated Unikrn Virtual, a reinvention of RNG experiences, allowing fans to bet on the world’s most popular esport every minute, 24/7.

Virtual betting enables esports fans to bet on top teams from iconic past rounds competitions. A unique algorithm utilising both archival and display techniques developed by Unikrn gives users access to key information about an upcoming round of CS:GO, then they may bet on the outcome. Unikrn Virtual is a regulator-approved RNG game which uses an approved third-party to randomly generate a round of CS:GO from an existing pool of past professional matches, giving fans the thrill of betting on live esports match without the delays or waits associated with live matches.

Rounds of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) last under 2 minutes, meaning fans can bet on around 500 match-ups per day. In 2019, CS:GO has been the most popular esport in Europe and North America and has remained one of the world’s most-watched competitive video games for nearly a decade.

“Unikrn Virtual brings fans the excitement of live competitions, but in an always on format with faster resolution and fewer interruptions,” said Andrew Vouris, Unikrn’s COO. “Unikrn Virtual will not only change quality and interactivity expectations for a bet-on-demand experience, but will fundamentally shift the future of the Casino industry as we bring wildly popular esports without the baggage of downtime.”

Unikrn will be launching with multiple exotic options to appeal to any user, including both true-random and expertise-based estimation categories (such as upcoming round number or final round score, respectively).

Additional esports titles and major esports competitions will be added in ongoing rollout throughout 2019 and beyond.

“Our goal with Unikrn Virtual was to bring unlimited content to esports fans,” said Rahul Sood, Unikrn CEO. “We succeeded. There’s never been a delay-free, 24/7 way to bet in on esports… until now. This is just the beginning!”
