The meaning of «pvp live»

PVP Live was an American esports news website. It was founded in 2012[citation needed] and included a statistics database.[1] The website was owned by PVP Live Interactive, Inc. PVP Live came out of its most recent beta on June 8, 2015.[2] The company is based in Frisco, Texas.[3]

Prior incarnations of the organization include the Heroes Live, PVE Live,[4] and Hearth Live[5] websites, a podcast,[6] as well as Armageddon,[citation needed] an online World of Warcraft Arena tournament, and Tavern Takeover, an online Hearthstone tournament. The third production of Tavern Takeover was widely criticized for poor sound production, resulting in the CEO issuing a public apology and stating that sound issues would be a thing of the past.[7] Several months later, the first episode of PVP Live's Hearthstone Pro League also struggled with sound issues.[citation needed]

In 2015, the website planned on producing a 24-hour online show along the lines of ESPN's Sports Center.[8][9]

On May 23, 2016, the site broke the news that ESPN was in talks with Riot Games to purchase television broadcast rights for League of Legends content for approximately $500 million.[10] Several hours later, both ESPN and Riot Games issued statements that the story created by PVP Live was false.[11][12]

PVP Live ran the Hearthstone Pro League, a professional Hearthstone competition, produced in partnership with Twitch, Blizzard Entertainment and PRG.[13] The $60,000 prize pool tournament was officially announced on May 27, 2015.[14] The company was unable to actually pay the top finishers of the competition and refused to answer questions concerning the matter. Later on April 13, 2016 it announced it would pay out the prize money if another organization would pick up all associated costs, excluding the prize pool.[15]

As of June 8, 2016, PVP Live had raised around US$2 million in private funding.[16]

On February 5, 2018, PVP Live shut down all operations immediately.[17]
