In two years, the GameHeart project changed expectations for audiences of StarCraft II by Blizzard Entertainment, becoming the standard for tournaments around the world. Presenters will detail how a game company, a community modding group, and a university research lab worked together to rapidly iterate on the observer experience of an eSport. Each presenter will individually retrace the experiences and best practices in the project, examining how communication between game developers, content-creating fans, and tournament organizers can push further experimentation with the live presentation of competitive digital games. The session concludes with Q&A and discussion between the speakers.
Attendees will better understand the responsibilities and opportunities for game developers, publishers, tournament organizers, players, content creators, broadcasters and streamers to create an iterative loop that allows an eSport to respond dynamically to the changing needs of a simultaneously maturing and broadening audience.
