10/14/21: 100 Thieves take Higround; The International 10 opens hot; CSL’s Badger add


Medias First Morning Read
Thursday October 14, 2021
Good morning! It’s Thursday, Oct. 14 and this is your weekly Esports Brief. 

A new era for 100 Thieves, which jumped into the peripherals business with the acquisition of Higround, a technology hardware company specializing in design-forward gaming keyboards. To drive the initiative, Higround recently hired former HyperX executive Baron Lee to lead the company’s product development. Higround will maintain the brand identity and operate independently, offering products like collectible gaming keyboards and keycaps while 100 Thieves will serve as an accelerator to support Higround to elevate gaming culture and reach a growing audience. To kick off the collaboration, 100 Thieves and Higround will launch a special product capsule for their community that consists of a custom keyboard, jelly bag, and hoodie. 

“Everything 100 Thieves does aims to push gaming culture forward,” said Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, Founder & CEO of 100 Thieves. “That’s why we love Higround – they have a similar mindset to take something functional and elevate it with quality and unique design. This is the first time we’ve found a brand that shared our philosophy so I’m excited to make our first acquisition and welcome Higround to the 100 Thieves family.”

“Peripherals are the new sneakers. Gamers aren’t looking for black keyboards anymore – they want to express their personalities through the equipment they perform on,” said Rustin Sotoodeh, Co-Founder & CEO of Higround. “As a young brand, our focus right now is improving our products, and we’re excited to partner with 100 Thieves to build the next generation of hardware.”
COMPETITION


The International 10 kicked off this week on a high note, with the first day of playoffs snatching a new viewership record for the opening round of the tournament, anchored by the team Secret/OG matchup, according to Esports Charts, peaking at nearly 1.4 million viewers. Overall Day 1 averaged 853,021 viewers, according to the site, with over 12.3 million hours watched.

Esports platform Challengermode partnered with the International Esports Federation to host the regional qualifiers to select the top athletes from all over the world for the world finals of the IESF 13th Esports World Championship, EILAT 2021 – the world’s only multi-game esports tournament that features national teams.

STREAM HATCHET TRENDS



The release of New World was felt across the entire gaming and live streaming industry. While the game’s initial closed beta launched in late July, the full release of the game came in September. Although viewership of the beta remained prevalent, the spike in audiences upon full release was massive. So how did New World’s emergence affect the audience of other top MMORPG titles?
· Last month, 56% of viewers that had watched World of Warcraft also watched New World content. New World successfully secured substantial viewership from competitor titles. 
· Viewers of New World also watched less WoW and Final Fantasy XIV content last month. Not only has the new game stolen viewership from other titles but is also retaining their own audience.
· Given its success, New World has quickly become the destination for digital marketing campaigns targeting the MMORPG community. How will New World build on its growth to sustain the advantageous ecosystem for their fans and creators?
