ECS partners with YouTube

YouTube is the new exclusive broadcasting platform of the Esports Championship Series (ECS), the league's organisers have announced.

The multi-year partnership between ECS and Youtube will come into effect on March 25, in time for the Season 3 Promotion stage, which will determine the last four teams entering the league.

The news marks a huge shift in the ECS structure, with Twitch having been a partner of FACEIT since the launch of the league, which paid out $3.5 million over the first two seasons.  


ECS signs a multi-year deal with YouTube

The ECS is now the second big CS:GO competition to partner with YouTube, which was announced in January as the exclusive platform for the English-language broadcast of the ESL Pro League throughout 2017.

"YouTube offers fans of the ECS an unmatched online viewing experience," FACEIT Chief Business Officer and co-founder Michele Attisani said in a statement.

"YouTube is by far the most watched platform for gamers in the world and continues to innovate and lead on video technology, making it a great place for us to call our new home for the Esports Championship Series".

All ECS matches will be streamed live in 1080p/60 fps, with "advanced future integrations" soon to be unveiled within YouTube and FACEIT's gaming platform. YouTube has also vowed to work closely with the ECS players to provide guidance on how they can grow the audience of their channels. 

"This is our most significant investment into esports to date and illustrates our continued commitment to growing esports with the hundreds of millions of gamers watching YouTube each day," Ryan Wyatt, Global Head of Gaming Content at YouTube, added.

"The ECS revenue sharing and co-ownership structure reinforces our belief that all players should have a voice. We know the CS:GO community is already watching clips, highlights, and rebroadcasts on YouTube, so we are excited to be able to bring them all this same action live."

2017-03-16 16:30
Youtube chat is just spam of emojis or cringe 15yo wanna be gold nova analyzes.
2017-03-16 16:33
No but you'll have people that think reading the opponents' tactics is based on luck which is far more cancerous than people spamming a Twitch emote of someone laughing.
2017-03-16 16:40
Yeah the youtube chat is way more vicious and cancer than Twitch. I watched Fnatic vs VP and I haven't sen so much hate for fnatic since 2014 Autumn. Fuck Youtube.
2017-03-16 16:56
or if you watch an older match everyone just says whoever won shouldve won whoever top fragged was the best and the other team sucks.... fuck youtube chat
2017-03-17 15:42
What makes event funny sometimes is from the twitch chat. Some random spam, emotes (Like Kappa, PogChamp, etc). Youtube won't give those experience that twitch chat gives.
2017-03-16 18:06
cool
2017-03-16 16:30
youtube is dogshit, guess i have to watch russian twitch stream then
2017-03-16 16:30

2017-03-16 16:30
No difference in quality whatsoever.

Yeah wtf is with Twitch chat being so resource heavy? YouTube chat is great for that but unfortunately sucks in terms of interaction, emotes and mobile. The YouTube player is much better though
2017-03-16 21:18
I would like to thank Youtube for effectively tanking the viewership of online NACS. Most of the matches have been low quality garbage anyway.

2017-03-16 16:32
Fucking cunts only caring about money > production quality. Look at fucking ESL now, not getting am ajor just because they partnered with youtube aswel and valve wants no major streamed on youtube, fucking morons. Excuse me for my language.
2017-03-16 16:32
ESL can go diddle themselves, the past years they became a disgrace to esports with their problems. Valve made the right decision and I don't get why Riot is still letting them run League of Legends tournaments. I'd bet ELEAGUE and Starladder would take ESL's spot with pleasure. Edit: Valve has no problem by the way with YouTube streaming, I'm pretty sure ELEAGUE Major was streamed on YouTube. It's just that if you do it exclusively, a huge viewerbase gets lost because Twitch simply is the leader of gaming streams.
2017-03-16 16:43
Yeah also I hope to see Starladder major or smth, that'd be pretty dope.
2017-03-16 16:40
Money = quality production
2017-03-16 16:39
Youtube sucks nowadays. Not being able to find your old comments and the fucking suggestions. Why would I want to watch only videos that I have already watched? The algorthms are made to make the alrrady succcessful channels even more succesful. I hate that, soon it's all just same.
2017-03-16 16:59
All that may be true but I don't see how things you mentioned would make ECS production quality worse as the guy, who i replied to, claimed.
2017-03-16 17:03
Yeah the production quality is not affected. Just the viewer experience gets worse. Why would anyone think that Youtube will be better than Twitch?
2017-03-16 17:10
Why would you think Twitch is better than YouTube?
2017-03-20 01:17
> Twitch specialized only in gaming > youtube does everything relating to videos and streaming Youtube is only viable because it can offer lucrative deals for organizations, not because it's better
2017-03-20 17:21
Youtube sees the success of twitch with esports Now they have a chance...
2017-03-16 16:33
im so happpy, just look at those retards from twitch chat crying right now haha

How is the delay on youtube, anyone know?
2017-03-16 16:33
Same as with Twitch
2017-03-16 16:36
But the chat is annoying af, because people with low internet (my guess) watch the stream like 10 sec delayed, and all the teactions come in 10sec delayed waves.
2017-03-16 17:00
Chat is the only Thing that doesnt Work good but everything Else is better than on twitch. The Thing that is important for me is that i Can watch at a good quality on YouTube but Twitch always buffers on good quality for me
2017-03-16 17:03
So you have bad internet? If Youtube gets all the big organisations from Twitch, they don't even have to make the viewer experience better, since no one else is streaming the matches. And even if they lose some clients, it doesn't matter since they have so many different sources of revenue. I don't care about the rewind feature, I'm watching the game live for a reason.
2017-03-16 17:14
Ye Bad Internet Cause my dad is like,why pay more for Internet if i Can get it cheap :/
2017-03-16 17:16
:/
2017-03-16 17:30
Then why dont you chip in the extra money for a better one? Quit acting spoiled.
2017-03-16 17:57
It may also be due to people rewinding slightly (or accidentally) and not bringing it back live. The live button also doesn't work as well as actually dragging the bar. Otherwise the player is good and the quality is amazing
2017-03-16 21:21
Youtube sucks
2017-03-16 16:33
Youtube > Twitch everday!
2017-03-16 16:34

youtube quality is better than twitch. Flexibility is more. You can move back and forth more comfortably and its infrastructure is better than twitch. Good to see companies recognise this
2017-03-16 16:48
but yet they still didn't invent a direct redirect method to youtube gaming. putting 'gaming' in front of every yt url is annoying as hell
2017-03-16 16:52
dont have to...
2017-03-16 16:54
is the another way?
2017-03-16 16:55
youtube.com/watch?v=T8KNsxNdsWg is the link for ESL Pro league stream. We dont need to add gaming.youtube.com everytime.you can just open ESL's youtube channel and see what live broadcasts are happening,click on what you want to watch,enjoy.
2017-03-16 17:07
I prefer YouTube Gaming over classic white skinned YouTune. it's just so much better for watching livestreams.
2017-03-16 17:13
What? You're watching fullscreen anyway, the theme doesn't matter?
2017-03-16 18:01
Some people multi task while watching online games or predictable rounds such as a full glock eco.
2017-03-16 18:08
Well you do have the choice of using extension etc. in most web browsers which solves this problem.
2017-03-16 18:09
well once you open the normal link there is a place on the top right side which says "Switch to night mode in YouTube Gaming" Just click that and you will sent to night mode..without having to type the URL
2017-03-16 18:30
Since everyone moving away from twitch hopefully we will see EG finally get a team
2017-03-16 16:50
why?
2017-03-16 16:54
Teams said they would boycott twitch as they own eg snd the players felt they would receive special treatment as far as whats streamed
2017-03-16 19:07
It's all the same to me.

Thank god, twitch is so shit
2017-03-16 16:54
First ESL now ECS, RIP CS viewership, they underestimated the pettiness of Liberals in the US election, and YouTube likewise has underestimated the serious resistance to change that gamers have i.e. see every valve update changing maps or guns in CSGO and the initial reaction.

NOO TWITCH IS 1000000000000000 BETTER THAN THAT YT
2017-03-16 17:02
Honestly with my shitty internet I get better quality from YouTube, so I'm not even mad. Twitch chat has literally no value to the event organizers.
2017-03-16 17:02
youtube is such a bullshit for streaming :(
2017-03-16 17:07
YouTube is probably a better streaming platform than Twitch but there will definitely be a loss of viewership since many prefer Twitch to view games on since the format is so simple and easy to follow.
2017-03-16 17:07
youtube's livestream system is just broken at it's core. I hardly notice when EPL is live so I often end up not tuning in
2017-03-16 17:09
yeah basically what I said. YouTube's format is a lot harder to use than Twitch.
2017-03-16 17:58
I mean if you aren't a pleb you can check HLTV every now and then to check which matches are played the following days.
2017-03-16 18:02
stopped after : "YouTube is by far the most watched platform for gamers in the world" yeah sure more people watch shitty YT live streams than on twitch lul
2017-03-16 17:12
youtube streams lag so much more than twitch for me. even at a much worse quality. can hardly watch any real time gameplay. always slows down and speeds up.
2017-03-16 17:13
YouTube just need a better live chat system and a good easy design otherwise eSport livestream will not work for them.
2017-03-16 17:14
Why do you care about the chat, all you do is spam kappa cringe aimlockg0d anyway.
2017-03-16 18:03
There are people who stream and their community isn't that stupid where you just see things like Kappa, 4Head etc.
2017-03-16 18:13
Well it does function as it should when not under pressure of 5K kids with below average internet speed try to spam.

Sellouts Twitch gets so much more viewers and is just generally better for streaming
2017-03-16 17:23
YouTube is too much political for CS, it's a platform without a soul. Emotes: Political to not offend anybody extremely boring. Layout: Not functional, chat aways missing when you expand the video. Just those two things kinda totally ruin the experience as a viewer

2017-03-16 17:58
anyone banging on about Twitch chat is a moron. the real problem with this is that YouTube's format is shit meaning that it's difficult to find an Esports stream if you don't follow the scene much on YouTube meaning that it's less convenient to find a game when you want to find one.

not everyone following CS:GO knows about the existence of hltv. most people watching the game are casuals who probably don't know about what HLTV is and just watches big tournaments/majors occasionally. of course for people who know about HLTV this is the solution but for normal casuals looking to find games on twitch then it's a big problem.
2017-03-16 18:35
I don't particularly care about casuals. You shouldn't either. HLTV masterrace
2017-03-16 18:47
They're vital when it comes to growing up the game tho
2017-03-18 03:25
yeah. Its a compromise but lot more casual casuals on youtube gaming I would guess
2017-03-18 07:05
quite happy with this switch, twitch had a good run but its had its issues also
2017-03-16 18:04
fak, i have 50/10 internet and it keeps buffering all the time in youtube
2017-03-16 18:04
There is like no difference for the viewers.
2017-03-16 18:06
Noice twitch is ridiculous
2017-03-16 18:10
I wonder how much money youtube is spending to buy all the big events at the moment.
2017-03-16 18:11
Now i can watch on SmartTV :)
2017-03-16 18:18
Dude, I'm watching almost every event on smartTV. It doesnt matter if its twitch or youtube.
2017-03-16 18:23
my third world smart tv doesn't have twitch app
2017-03-16 18:32
Does it have internet app? I do it in internet app.
2017-03-16 18:37
Panasonic dont have twitch app and i cant watch through the browser idk why
2017-03-16 20:21
I have some 50'' Samsung and everything works in browser. I just have to turn off twich chat to watch full hd without lags/lil freezes.
2017-03-16 23:01
LUL youtube in 2017 LUL
2017-03-16 18:20
lmfao the youtube player is so much better than the twitch player but i am esport fan and i am hate change so boo!
2017-03-16 18:22
I'm actually pretty happy about that. Youtube's quality is waaaay better than twitch.
2017-03-16 18:22
Also one funny thing Twitch is a co-owner of the league ESC in partner with faceit. play.faceit.com/faceit-and-twitch-partne.. esports.inquirer.net/14598/faceit-and-tw..
2017-03-16 18:26
good: i will be able to watch matches in my smartTV, cuz i don't have a twich app bad: quality problems, no legendary twitch funny chat and more :(
2017-03-16 18:29
I had quality problems with twitch on my SmartTV.
2017-03-16 19:56
all games will be streamed at 1080/60fps with desynced/delayed sound you mean
2017-03-16 18:32
Google is putting up big money to fight against amazon dominion in esport. Rivalries are good for customers!

A lot of the fun for many people is the ridiculously nonsensical, meme churning, twitch chat. You take that away, you're taking away a huge amount of viewers.
2017-03-16 18:59
Youtube live is so bad. Twitch >>> YT
2017-03-16 19:03
not sure what to think. rip emotes.

nice way to lose half the viewers but I guess money talks
2017-03-16 19:17
Time will tell. ;)
2017-03-16 19:57
who cares csgo has no future anyways AND is dying. youtube losing money, not amazon.
2017-03-16 19:23
What on earth are you talking about? Prize money increasing, eSports gaining constantly more structure so does CS:GO and VALVe keeps improving the game. CSGO is dying to you but that doesn't mean that the industry is dying.
2017-03-16 20:16
CS:GO is one of the few esports that is getting recognition from the more traditional sports media outlets. What are you on about?
2017-03-17 14:15
YouTube is a billionaire organization. Will ECS be able to beat WESG's prize purse?

YouTube has to implement some better emotes then. I don't wanna lose any PogChamp or BibleThump :c
2017-03-16 19:27
"YouTube is by far the most watched platform for gamers in the world" why the fuck u lying?
2017-03-16 19:31
They don't refer to streaming only. They take VODs and clips into account. ;) I bet there are more views on YT overall than on twitch. So...yea, it's the biggest platform overall.
2017-03-16 19:55
tought they were talking about streaming in youtube , if the major would be streamed on youtube i wont see more than 100k viewers
2017-03-16 20:03
It depends on where the cases are raining. :D If you can link your steam account with YTG and cases will drop while watching the YTG stream, you will have the same amount of viewer on YTG than twitch had before.^^ ^^

google keeps getting bigger and bigger... even their new parent company name suggests this: alphabet
2017-03-16 19:50
amazon was too slow to put their full weight behind twitch--now google is going to eat their lunch

2017-03-16 20:17
Wtf, twitch is so much better plz twitch
2017-03-16 20:19
I fuckign hate to watch games on You Fucking Tube! On Twitch its 100% fun and then its 60% video and 40% chat. On Youtube its 50% fun with 90% video and 10% chat and that is very boring.
2017-03-16 20:28
and youtube chat is fucking BAD compared to twitch :[

"YouTube offers fans of the ECS an unmatched online viewing experience," HUH? how, just how? ESL has been unwatchable so far in youtube, how in the fuck is it an unmacthable experience???
2017-03-16 21:54
GREAT news, hope other leagues do the same!
2017-03-16 21:58
watching YT in 2017 LUL ULULULULULUL
2017-03-16 22:35
hahahaha damn this sucks.
2017-03-16 23:46
not hahaha...
2017-03-16 23:48
Who cares about chat and emoji? It's ridiculous. Didn't you guys just sit back and watch it in fullscreen?
2017-03-17 03:30
Ay lmaoo
2017-03-17 03:51
I prefer youtube. Better quality and you can pause and then resume easy as well as rewind. Thanks!
2017-03-17 07:08
Youtube is becoming really good streaming alternative for twitch.
2017-03-17 13:00
youtube has better quality in my opinion, but outside of that is same shit to me lol, both are ok
2017-03-17 13:01
I like listening to matches when I'm at work to pass the time, the twitch app has an audio only option so I can have my phone in my pocket and earbuds in. YouTube doesn't have this option, that I am aware of.
2017-03-17 13:04
It's hard to compete with the kind of money Google can offer...
