Faceit and Genvid Technologies have revealed a partnership to provide exclusive experiences for those with a Premium Pass for the Esports Championship Series (ECS) Season 8, available as a one-time purchase for $4.99 USD.
This pass unlocks access to the Command Center, letting fans see 11 additional streams, stats, in-game information, player POVs, interviews, and an interactive HUD, along with a clapping feature for favourite players.
Genvid is helping make this possible, with stats coming from StatsHelix, and what's more is that premium chat rooms and emojis are also coming to these users.
The Faceit Major in London last year saw this Premium Pass debut, and since then it has grown in terms of the content offering.
"Premium clapping brings the people on Twitch directly into the online digital stadium experience. Viewer feedback so far has been very positive; once fans are able to directly contribute and show the world their favorites in real time, they never want to go back," says Chris Cataldi, COO & Co-Founder of Genvid.
"We always want to provide fans with cutting-edge ways to follow and support the players they love. We're extremely happy to be able to offer our audience the interactive Command Center experience, and will continue to innovate to not only meet, but exceed their expectations going forward," adds Michele Attisani, CBO & Co-Founder of Faceit.
The ECS finals are running from today until December 1. Are you excited for the action to kick off?
