Why Aren’t You Watching the OGN?

Champions_Spring_2013

Seriously? If you are into the competitive League of Legends scene and you are not watching the Korean OGN Champions you are only depriving yourself of some of the most entertaining and spectacular League of Legends the world has ever seen. If you think the NA LCS is entertaining you haven’t seen anything yet. I have nothing but good things to say about this competition and encourage everyone that enjoys  eSports and gets aroused by  extremely high level competitive League of Legends to head over to the OGN Twitch Channel and watch.

  • The level of play is completely next-level and out of this world. You have never seen anything so incredibly skilled, strategic and tactful, entertaining, and sometimes absolutely crazy in the best way you can imagine.
  • The shoutcasters are divine! MonteCristo and Doa have an incredibly natural chemistry together and are not only incredibly informative about the game, and Korean scene, but also just as entertaining to listen to as the games are to watch.
  • The crowd is incredibly loud and awesome, and they do it without stupid horns! People cheer, girls scream, and every play, juke, and kill is met with the appropriate amount of admiration that you would expect at any professional level sporting event! It makes it incredibly exciting to watch!
  • The level of production that goes into the tournament is incredibly high. Even the “2nd rate” English stream is very impressive and I think even Riot’s LCS could stand to learn something from the production OGN puts into their Champions tournaments.
  • It plays 2-3 times a week, 4 games a day. The amount of content you get access to is almost equal to the NA and EU LCS combined! It also airs extremely early in the morning (AM) which means you get to watch VoDs and can seek out the games you want to watch and skip past all the down times, interviews, and picks/bans if you’re just hungry to watch games.
  • You will learn something new, or see something new, almost every broadcast! It isn’t a secret that Korean LoL is the real deal. If you are looking to improve your game or learn the latest trends and strategies then it would only benefit you to watch the OGN games.
  • It’s only $5.99 a month! This is actually a lot better than OGN’s past broadcasting options where they would charge $1.00 for a 24 hour pass to watch VoDs.

No I am not getting paid by OGN to write this, I wish I was. I just feel bad keeping this secret to myself. Obviously some people probably know about, and watch, the OGN, but not enough do. Like I said in the beginning you are just depriving yourself if you don’t watch these games. They are really that good and entertaining. I have never been so entertained or smiled so much while watching League of Legends and for $6 bucks you can’t go wrong!

Love, Dcgreen

    Couldn’t that be covered entirely by advertisements if they open up the videos for free and include advertising? Twitch.tv is responsible for a lot of the overhead anyways. With a Youtube channel you can also generate revenue strictly through getting more views and being a partner channel.
    Also as Exoplanets said: LPL is free and has ads at the beginning of their videos. I watch them all the time.

    The revenue from advertisements is tenths of cents per view or less. You can’t build a sustainable business model from a few advertisements on Youtube.

    Just go to youtube and subscribe at TVongamenet they upload a VoD of every match.. they really have sick plays and good coordination..deym koreans

    But do you get to watch all these games with English commentary with a special stream that is made as extra to the normal production. With excellent casters and it’s $6 for a month, It’s not like you can’t watch all the matches from Champions Winter and Club Master from earlier this year either, you get access to them all for month. I’m also not getting paid by them, I’m paying them :). Well worth it though. Yeah, the English stream is funded exclusively from subscriptions and the few advertisements they have.

    Video game not video. >_<

    Riot directly profits interest being generated for their video, OGN does not. OGN ONLY profits through advertising fees and anything they charge to view their stuff.

  • Melo

    I don’t watch because I have to pay. Maybe OGN can learn a thing or two from Riot who release their games on Youtube for free.

    I completely and 100% agree. I subscribed to the Korean OGN Twitch and have been blown away by the games.

    The level of play is unreal.
