Global esports expansion and Season Two details announced
Black Bulls crowned Season One Champions

 

As part of the celebrations at the recent Guns of Boom Season One Finals in Los Angeles, Game Insight has revealed the plans for the game’s second esports season in partnership with ESL, the world’s largest esports company. Beginning in early 2019, Guns of Boom Season Two will introduce Gods of Boom, a new stadium-level series of tournaments that will be part of the world’s biggest esports events. The first Gods of Boom competition will take place at the IEM Expo in Katowice, Poland, with the final match taking place on the main stage. Guns of Boom will be the first mobile game to step on to one of ESL’s mega stages.

“I was competing in esports nearly 20 years ago, and have been a fan of competitive gaming ever since,” said Anatoly Ropotov, CEO of Game Insight. “To bring Guns of Boom to IEM Expo, the biggest esports trade show out there, feels like something of a homecoming. I can’t imagine a better place to debut our Gods of Boom tournament series.”

Game Insight has also revealed that their Pro League will be welcoming players from Latin America and Southeast Asia to compete for the first time. Previously limited to Europe and North America, Guns of Boom’s Pro League now welcomes competitors from four of the world’s largest regions to complete in their live studio events.

“From the moment we launched Guns of Boom, we’ve been fortunate enough to see passionate player communities develop around the world,” said Nikita Sherman, Game Insight’s Head of Strategy. “In regions like Brazil and India, our fans have been clamoring for a way to show off their skills in professional competition. Expanding our reach to these territories was our top priority for Season Two. We’ll also be bringing some of our Pro League studio competitions to these new regions. To our players around the world: we’ve heard you, and we’re excited to see what you can bring to the arena! Let’s mix things up and see which team from which territory can take home the trophy in Season Two.”

Guns of Boom will continue to welcome all players to join in their esports season by competing in Challenger Series online matches. Formerly known as Go4, Season Two’s Challenger Series will give all players a chance to earn rewards and prizes, with the top Challenger Series teams earning a place to compete at Pro League events throughout the season. Together with Gods of Boom and Pro League, Guns of Boom Season Two will be supporting three distinct levels of competition for the first time. Challenger Series competition will kick off Season Two beginning in January.

“Seeing Game Insight embrace ESL’s ‘Zero to Hero’ approach in their second year is fantastic,” said Sean Charles, ESL’s Senior Vice President of Publisher & Developer Relations. “Guns of Boom is taking a dominant stance in mobile competitive play, and it answers directly the desire of the community.”

The Guns of Boom Season One Finals ended in a rematch between the teams that duked it out for the title of European Invitational Champion earlier in the season. Black Bulls triumphed over Back-to-Back during the Season One Finals for the second time to take home $60,000 in prize money. Black Bulls secured their place in the final round after defeating Yakuza in the semi-finals — a new team created by a former Black Bulls teammate, using their original moniker. In addition to the prize money, Black Bulls have also been awarded with the first confirmed competitor slot for the Gods of Boom Invitational at IEM Expo 2019 in Katowice.

Spain’s Ombudsman Calls for Gambling Ad Ban

Spain’s Ombudsman Calls for Gambling Ad BanReading Time: 1 minute

 

Francisco Fernández Marugán, Spain’s acting Civic Ombudsman, has recommended the Spanish government to issue a complete ban on advertising gambling products and services. Marugán addressed the recommendations to the Ministries of Finance and Health, Consumer Affairs and Social Welfare.

The ban would mean that operators would be prohibited from displaying any form of broadcast pertaining to gambling products and services before a particular time, in addition to the prohibition of celebrity endorsements and gambling signage at sporting events.

Marugán has stated that any operator found to be in contravention of the proposed ban could result in the cancellation of an operator’s license, however, this can only be justified if a total ban is imposed.

Marugán considers that the advertising of gambling and bets “should not be considered protected in the freedom of business, as it is not in products such as tobacco or addictive substances.”
