Slingshot Readers,

We NEED your support. More specifically, the author of this article needs your support. If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat.

If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support.

G2 announces its players will stream on Facebook

G2 Esports announced Wednesday its professional esports players will stream on Facebook in what it calls a “non-exclusive” precedent starting Feb. 1.

“One of G2’s biggest goals is to share our love of this industry with all fans by making our content as accessible as we can, while also helping lesser-known streamers looking to make a name for themselves,” said G2 founder and CEO Carlos “ocelote” Rodríguez Santiago said in a news release. “We pride ourselves on innovation, and by leaning into Facebook as an audience platform, we see a world of new opportunities beyond what the current streaming ecosystem offers.”

The announcement did not specify if the streaming would be in addition or in place of other streaming platforms, but the use of “non-exclusive” makes it appear to be the former (which G2 later confirmed in a tweet.)

G2 has players in League of Legends, Counter-Strike and Hearthstone.
