Logan McLean, Esports Advisor, for NGame Esports, shares his perspective on the Pittsburgh Knights.
The Pittsburgh Knights recently announced they would add a Rocket League team. What value does this bring to the organization?
Rocket League is one of the easiest competitive esports for an audience with no primer to witness and engage with. Therefore, it follows a logical progression of the Pittsburgh Knights, who have added big celebrities to their investor group. This action enables the organization to connect more easily with fans at the local and national level.
Why do you think the Knights chose to compete in Rocket League?
Rocket League’s small roster sizes mean that the cost to compete is relatively low for the game. You do not need any esports knowledge to know that paying the least amount of total salaries is ideal.
Three or four employees compared to seven or more in other games of competition, make it an easy decision.
