Greetings, everyone! I'm Jeff from the Overwatch team. We're here to talk about esports today. So, esports is incredibly important to the Overwatch development team. When Overwatch was first released, we were so impressed with how many people in the community sort of grabbed on to Overwatch and decided that they wanted it to be the next great esport. And, throughout the year, we were developing things like the Overwatch World Cup and Overwatch League. We've also introduced things like Overwatch Contenders, which is sort of our up-and-coming league, to show all the great talent coming into Overwatch esports. But, we realized that there's a lot of challenges with Overwatch and esports in general. And probably the top thing that we hear on the development team is that sometimes watching Overwatch esports can be very challenging to follow the action and know what's going on. So, for the past few months the Overwatch team has been extremely dedicated to working on a number of features to improve the viewing experience for all of us, so that when we're watching things like Overwatch World Cup or the upcoming Overwatch League, it's an amazing, great experience.
