From 2022, Freaks 4U Gaming will take over the Northern European ERL (European Regional Leagues) region from DreamHack/ESL and Telia, and will implement a ‘multi-division league ecosystem’ that is ‘open to all’, similar to the League of Legends Prime League in the DACH region.

Pokemon Unite is way better than it has any right being

Pokemon Unite is a barnstormer right out of the gate. Watch on YouTubeThe world of Pokemon has been applied to many genres of video game, but I think it’s pretty fair to say that only a handful of them have been runaway successes. There’s the original turn-based RPGs, of course. There’s the photography simulation of Snap, and the augmented reality adventures of Pokemon Go. These aren’t just successes, but in most cases are also milestone titles – but for every game like this, there’s something that’s just sorta fine – puzzlers, fighting, and a slew of mobile money-spinners.

Dota 2’s championships won’t be held in Sweden because esports aren’t ‘elite’ enough

Valve’s plans to hold the finals of their Dota 2 championship The International in Stockholm seem dead after the Swedish Sports Federation voted against esports being accepted as an ‘elite sport’. The classification was vital to secure the same travel exemptions that other sports have during the Covid-19 pandemic. An appeal to the Swedish government was denied, which seems to shut the door on the event’s initial location. Valve have committed to holding the event somewhere “in Europe this year”. Read more
