In a special fan event, celebrity and influencer teams went head to head for charity, with deadmau5 winning $20K to donate to Extra Life (extra-life.org). He defeated teams of fans captained by Cloud9, YouTube stars The Try Guys and streamer Jericho, coming out on top in three of the four scrimmage matches.
The OGN Super Arena launched this past weekend to a sold-out crowd. The new arena is the largest eSports arena on the west coast, at 35,000 square feet and with more than 400 audience seats and a 100-player capacity. It is also the only arena in the country with a specialized stage set-up for battle royale format competitions.
The arena is entirely modular, allowing it to be shaped into any configuration based on need, or desire.
“With this event, our U.S. launch is now official and we are very excited to be able to unveil our new arena and studio for fans here and around the world,” said CJ E&M America CEO DJ Lee. “We can’t wait to show everyone the next phase in this journey.”
