On the heels of the exponential growth of live-streaming gaming, E-sports Bush League has announced the launch of the first ever E-Sports minor leagues.
Major professional sports such as hockey, baseball, basketball have their own minor leagues. It is in these lower levels that players spend their time perfecting their art and mastering their game. Currently, there are no minor league systems in place for E-Sports. Now, E-Sports players can do the same.
The first 3 games will be Paragon, SMITE, and Orcs Must Die! Unchained, with more games to come in the near future. From the initial sign-up to the actual competition, the E-Sports Bush League will mirror how professional tournaments are run, so participants will get an understanding of what is expected of them in a professional setting. E-Sports Bush League Tournament will hold their first minor league competition this summer between the months of July and August.
In a press release, Commissioner James Wagner stated:
“We noticed the current atmosphere of the E-Sports industry is entirely focused on the professional players and tournaments for those players. The E-Sports Bush League intends to provide a middle ground for the average everyday player and the Professional E-Sports Player.”
This league will give players an opportunity to showcase their skills, win prizes, gain sponsorships, and receive invites from professional teams. The site will host seasonal tournaments with cash prizes, sponsors, and shout casting to assist those individuals looking to break into the Professional Ranks. E-Sports Bush League hopes to help the average everyday player become a professional player in what is currently an overly-competitive market. The minor leagues will be open to all players who wish to compete.
The league’s scheduled tournaments will all be happening online and running on the GamerLaunch.com Platform. Gamer Launch is the flagship product of the Launch Media Network, creators of publishing platforms, data analytic tools and mobile apps for the gaming industry.
Founded in 2016, E-Sports Bush League is the creation of two former, semi-pro gamers James Wagner and Mark Deola. Their company’s mission is to help competitive amateur and semi-pro players make the leap and get to the professional level. Their league acts as an incubator for talented gamers looking to make their way into the pros.
