Wizards of the Coast is launching a Magic: The Gathering Arena esports League


Quote:
Wizards of the Coast has announced that it will launch a Magic: The Gathering esports program in 2019 called the Magic Pro League, with a $10 million prize pool spread across both digital and tabletop formats.

The Magic Pro League will feature 32 of the world's top-ranked players, who will be offered "play and streaming contracts worth $75,000," Wizards said. League competitors will square off in weekly contests in Magic: The Gathering Arena that will ultimate take them to new Mythic Championship events.

"Today is an extremely important day for Magic: The Gathering as we announce our commitment to esports and our Magic players by evolving our tournament structure to include a $10 Million prize pool," Wizards of the Coast president Chris Cocks said. "We are fully embracing esports and affirming Magic as a leader in the collectible card game category while providing lucrative opportunities for pros, players, sponsors, and esports partners."

I love esports games. They have the tightest controls, no over the top, poorly-optimized graphics and usually a decent community of players.

I look forward to this.

This isn't surprising at all. In fact I think it is way past due and I'm glad to see Magic getting into the game here.
