  1. 3

    no projects for me - but love just talking about esports.

    1. 2

      I love talking about esports too, I have a close friend who owns a team and we talk about it all day!

    2. 1

      Any particular game that you like?

      1. 1

        for me it's League of Legends & Overwatch mostly!

  2. 2

    Not much there yet (and probably will take a while) but I want to have a place (simpler than the liquidpedia) where I can go and check when is the next game.

    I'm thinking this for any sport / esport. Might start with SC2 which is my thing.

    1. 1

      I also miss games because the platforms all have their own segregated way to notify you about upcoming games!

  3. 2

    Not me, but one of our customers at Outseta is working on a really interesting e-sports project—geex.gg. Their CEO is https://www.linkedin.com/in/geexchris/.

    1. 1

      Are you familiar with PlayVS ? They're also in that space, cool thanks for sharing!

  4. 1

    Solve: Make esports easier to watch and support. We provide, news, calendars, overviews, schedule, and rankings for every tournament, VoDs, and most importantly a 24/7 live stream of all currently live tournament.

    Website: www.esportsgrandstand.com

    Twitter: twitter.com/esgrandstand

    I'd love to get some feedback from anyone interested in Esports or gaming. Hopefully the site makes it easier to follow news and watch matches.

    1. 1

      I think there's a huge potential for noob-friendly streams, not just reminders and overviews/schedule/rankings.
      For example, I would love to watch some Smash games but I have NO IDEA what's going on and the commentators don't make it simple for me to understand. It would be dope if someone solved that issue by re-commentating videos of games that have passed!

      1. 1

        This is a great idea and the exact kind of issue I am trying to solve.
        I don't have time to deeply follow games and leagues so I am hoping this site can help people in a similar situation. Most people I speak to about it seem to identify with the issue.
        I am planning on producing YT videos, noob-friendly streams is a great idea for a category.
