Another Friday-in-quarantine has made its way to the world, which means a new digital IGEC 2020 panel is fast approaching. Today's panel, 'Oversaturated Content Market', will be hosted by Inven Global Director of Corporate Strategy Nick D'Orazio and will focus on the saturation of certain types of content in the esports and gaming spaces.
All forms of esports content are valuable, but there is an unfortunate case of content oversaturaiton in the most popular areas of esports. A repetition of narrative-focused questions has catalyzed an increase in players' ability to understand the public perspective on them and their careers. In an interview with Inven Global during the 2020 League of Legends Championship Series Spring Split, Team Liquid Mid Laner Nicolaj "Jensen" Jensen made it clear he understood his career arc.gg
"I don't think any amount of pressure will compete with the pressure I felt in joining Team Liquid for my first split with the team... I joined a roster that dominantly won the previous two splits, so I felt that if I joined the team and it became worse, there would have to be something wrong with me, right?"ggg
