    Question Why partner with Facebook? WHY?

    Legit, like, why though?

    A professional eSports League, being streamed, not on the top dedicated game-streaming sites, but a social media site?

    I mean, it's not even centered around gaming, and that's not where gamers will go to watch gaming-related content.

    It is legitimately hurting viewership, less people view because they don't want to go to Facebook just to watch and, and even before that, the UI and customizability given is lackluster in comparison.

    So why Hi-Rez? Why not Twitch? Or even YouTube? Why Facebook?

    Psst, over here.

    Streams that are made on Facebook are simultaneously made over twitch and youtube.

    Not only are there fewer gamers on facebook, the facebook streaming setup is extremely clunky compared to youtube gaming or twitch. I am not gonna go back to fb just to watch Paladins esports anyways.

    Imo they don't really care about actual advertising though and rolled with it coz it might be more profitable in ad revenue (just speculating ofcourse based on the lackluster advertising efforts for the game)

    And I'm calling it, they're gonna come up with another skin set to bribe people to watch the streams on fb..

    It is another proof that the paladins project is lead by people who dont have a clue about where they want to go with this game, except for cashflows. Sorry being a bit harsh and repetitive about this, but I can list 50 obvious things that make me think they are literally trolling us at this point...

    I did pay a dime for this game, because I support good decisions

    golden quote : "OB64 did come out because of the responses we got during the PTS cycle"

    Glad for OB67, now that we are back on track, work on the Matchmaker please!!!

    The new Paladins Premier League which is associated with WESA, has partnered exclusively with Facebook for streaming. So there'll be no more simultaneous Youtube or Twitch streams :/ Only on Facebook Watch, which I doubt anyone even uses. No one I know in the gaming community does.

    I never knew there were streams on facebook. Worst case you need to make an account there if that is even needed to watch.

    Tho idk why would they make it facebook exclusive, barely anyone will watch it compared to twitch/yt.

    Why would HI-Rez do it? Thought they were trying to invest heavily on E-sports transmissions.

    Never expect your team to do their job, if you want something done right, do it yourself.
