Chris Sigaty of Blizzard has said that for eSports to "take that next step" in its journey, advertisers need to be poked awake and educated that they're just as 'viable' as other celebrated sports.

They need to be convinced of putting the "same sorts of investments" into eSports as others, with Blizzard happy with StarCraft 2's eSports - but there's an "additional tip that can happen."

Blizzard and Valve have finally announced that their legal tussle over Defense of the Ancients (DOTA) has finally been resolved via a mutual agreement. Valve will own the name DOTA, and will continue to release commercial DOTA games such as Defense of the Ancients 2, while Blizzard's version of DOTA will be renamed Blizzard All-Stars.

Blizzard had challenged Valve's right to trademark DOTA and Defense of the Ancients since the original DOTA was a Warcraft III mod.
