Confirmed- they had to pay a pretty price to get their monitors in the league (at least 100K+)

Btw it can bee seen that labels on the scene's monitors are covered by stickies (hidden to cameras). Probably you wouldnt do that if Asus is your sponsor. But yes, its clearly the PG258Q model.

One of their early sponsors was displays by hp omen. I think they wisely want a full sponsor willing to pay for the logos on the monitors themselves and untill then they are keeping them logo free. The logo space on those monitors is arguably the best advertising spot they have without going full nascar and billboarding the whole arena. The fact that overwatch is one of the main games people get monitors like this for makes it a huge deal to see a company logo every time they show the monitors. Also its just personal opinion and I don't have experience with other 240hz monitors but I think that the pg258q may be the best monitor for them considering max brightness and only semi gloss will hold up alot better with all the lights around that room. I cannot comment on how it holds up to response times and input lag of other 240hz monitors but I assume it is very close to the other top 240hz in those catagories.

I hope Season 2 will be an even bigger success. I've read somewhere that 8 more teams are joining the league. That's pretty cool. I'm sure more sponsors will jump on board too.

Yes the league is expanding. Its hard to use that as a metric for success because the teams are bought with investor money. As with other blizzard games I'm sure the best measurements will be kept private.

On a side note the world cup is today and tomorrow and they are showing a new technology that will let you spectate the game with your own camera. I think this is an amazing concept for esports and will be watching.

Also bringing it back to the original post I noticed that the world cup is using hp omen displays now WITH logos. Not sure what display this is but it must be a high end 240hz option.

And the world cup viewer is awesome. Love watching these games at high fps gsync and with my own camera controls.
