ESL announced a new partnership with Shadow Esports, a Berlin-based data startup (Shadow.GG).
As part of the agreement, the distribution of Shadow.Esports GG’s Widget – a data tool created next to Bayes Esports in 2020 will be expanded by ESL. No specific information has been disclosed on distribution plans.
In addition to the other features, Shadow.Esports GG’s Widget provides a detailed 2D map of the game that can serve as an add-on or live stream replacement. When the widget was first announced last year, official channels, computer vision and 24/7 manual monitoring were used as a facilitator for the curation of data.
