ArcaneBet becomes headline sponsor of the Balkan Pro League

first_imgGameAgents has partnered with ArcaneBet to host the second season of the Balkan Pro League which will have $3,500 on the line. The CS:GO competition gets underway on the 26th of April and will last for six weeks with more than 50 matches taking place. It’s now part of a wider project titled the ‘GameAgents Euroleague’. The general format (round robin and play-offs) will remain the same as in the previous season but something new is the Open League. This will see all teams that failed to qualify for the Pro League given a second chance to participate and fight for two spots in the Pro League next season.Tim Hurks, ArcaneBet CEO, told ESI: “We at ArcaneBet are glad to be involved with this tournament and see it as an opportunity to give back to the community by partially funding the prize pool and thus enabling esports to become an even stronger phenomenon in the region.”He continued: “CS:GO is by far the most popular game and we were delighted to be contacted by Game Agents to help make the Balkan Pro League a serious competition. With their experience and expertise, we strongly believe that this tournament will be yet another success story!“We hope that a number of as yet unknown esport teams see this tournament as an opportunity to put their name out their and get the ball rolling by signing up for the open qualifiers.”Invited teams include Outlaws, Nexus, exDarkPassage, Sensei GG, Binary Dragons and MK. This Pro League season will form a part of the wider GameAgents Euroleague which will incorporate eight regional leagues, though the Euroleague itself will not take place until 2018. GameAgents CEO Aleksandar Gligoric commented: “We are happy to start the new season of Balkan ProLeague this time with help of ArcaneBet. Last season went really well and showed that this competition is the most important one in the region in terms of developing teams and the scene.“We are glad that ArcaneBet showed interest, and we are sure that going forward it will prove a great partnership.”Esports Insider says: Last year the Balkan Pro League was sponsored by Vital Bet and it now has another bookmaker on board in the form of ArcaneBet. Last year’s victorious team was iNation, the Serbian team has since been signed by Binary Dragons so they’ll be the team to watch out for once the league gets underway.last_img read more

Yu Darvish not as sharp, but Dodgers still win

first_imgAgainst the much more combative Diamondbacks, however, Darvish was forced to fight for every out.He went to the full count on each of the first six batters he faced and seven of the first eight, searching for the strike zone with his fastball in particular. The Diamondbacks had seven baserunners in five innings against Darvish (five hits, two walks) including the leadoff man in three of his five innings – twice on leadoff walks.But the Diamondbacks went 2 for 12 with runners on base. Seven of Darvish’s 10 strikeouts came in those situations.The only thing easy about Darvish’s night was the offensive support. Only four times in his 22 starts with the Texas Rangers this season did the Rangers score more than four runs for him – and one of those was a 22-10 loss in his final Texas startBut the Dodgers have scored 14 runs in Darvish’s two starts since they acquired him at the non-waiver trade deadline and Darvish has not thrown a pitch as a Dodger without the lead. PHOENIX >> The Dodgers have done everything they can to make Yu Darvish’s transition to a new team easy, showering him with good will and run support.It was Darvish who made things hard on himself Thursday night. The right-hander was far from sharp and threw 106 pitches in just five innings. But the Dodgers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 8-6, anyway.Darvish is unbeaten in his two starts with the Dodgers. But those two starts were as different as the two opponents.Against the sagging New York Mets in his debut, Darvish was dominant. He allowed just three hits and one walk in seven scoreless innings, striking out 10 and cruising to the finish. He retired 20 of the final 22 batters he faced. The Dodgers put three runs on the board before he took the mound Thursday. Kike’ Hernandez drove them all in with a bases-loaded double. Hernandez has 29 hits against left-handed pitchers this season – 20 of them went for extra bases (nine doubles, two triples and nine home runs).The Diamondbacks chipped away at that with single runs off Darvish in the third and fourth innings (including a solo home run by J.D. Martinez) but undid their own work in the fifth inning. Chris Taylor led off the inning with a solo homer but a walk, a throwing error by catcher Chris Iannetta and two infield singles led to two more runs.Justin Turner drove in two more with a double in the sixth inning and the Dodgers needed every bit of the offense.Brock Stewart gave two of the runs back on a homer by Iannetta in the bottom of the sixth. Ketel Marte drove in two more with a single off Brandon Morrow in the eighth. But Tony Cingrani came in to strike out back-to-back lefties, Gregor Blanco and David Peralta, with a runner on and Kenley Jansen closed it out in the ninth.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
