FACEIT Pro League status and new features have been announced, including DotaTV feature with full player information, plans for integrating TeamSpeak into the DotaTV client and multiplayert-watch with player perspectives.
Only days days after Johnathon“Loda” Berg announced the creation of FPL inhouse league, admins have already started to make adjustments and improvements to enhance both the player and viewer experience. Milos “Mikey” Nedeljkovic, one of the prominent admins for FACEIT, has provided all of the exciting new and coming plans:
We are truly happy that besides giving professional players a new home, we also gave a lot of entertainment and good content to the community. I think watching professional players everyday in a relaxed environment with TeamSpeak on was truly magical and we agreed to push even harder to bring you required features to be able to have an even better FPL experience.
New integrated features
From now on, you will be able to watch all matches on DotaTV and also:
- Track teams, player names and captains
- Check whenever games go live
- Check game time
Features coming soon
- Visit Twitch pages of players playing (yet to be added)
- Check which heroes are players playing (yet to be added)
- Total number of viewers on DotaTV + all player Twitch streams combined (yet to be added)
- Multitwitch link combining POV’s of players in the game (yet to be added)
This is just a temporary solution until the FPL ticket gets added to the client. Until then, you will be able to visit faceit.com and easily access DotaTV from there.
Faceit also announces regular coverage of FACEIT Pro League, which will run everyday and try to cover as much games as possible, with all of the vods being uploaded to the FPL Youtube channel (TBA). ODPixel will cast FACEIT Pro League on his stream over here.
Professional players will be joining him often to co-cast with him and provide you guys top-notch analysis along with Pixel’s hypecasting.
Teamspeak + DotaTV
Plan is to have TEAMSPEAK_DIRE and TEAMSPEAK_RADIANT bot inside the DotaTV, so DotaTV viewers can experience the game in the client, but aswell have access to listen to the teams.
On Saturday, April 25, you will get to see James and Draskyl in action live at the GD Studiso. You can expect the unexpected and enjoy top quality allstar matches (and probably some tryhard ARDM’s too).
Faceit currently have a total of 89 players and usually 2-3 games up during the afternoon until midnight. The activity is really intensive and it’s just a sign that every piece of the puzzle is coming together.
An even bigger Season 2 is supposed to start on May 13. DotaTV tickets will of course be free.
