Buffalo Wild Wings Inc. announced on Oct. 17 a partnership with Team Dignitas, an internationally acclaimed esports team. Through the partnership, Buffalo Wild Wings is now the “official hangout” of Team Dignitas. The partnership comes with a Buffalo Wild Wings logo on the sleeves of Dignitas player jerseys, player appearances at restaurants, exclusive digital content, and branding on monthly Team Dignitas live streams on Twitch and Facebook.
This is Buffalo Wild Wings’ first team sponsorship deal. Bob Ruhland, the company’s Marketing Vice President started discussing a possible partnership since last year. He mentioned that their sponsorship of Eleague increased the number of esports fans attending Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants. They are hoping that with the appearance of Team Dignitas in restaurants will make last year’s viral reports vanish in which patrons said they were not able to watch Eleague broadcasts at their sports bars.
An all-day livestream was conducted by Dignitas streamer Elle “Elektrikk” Lokyer on October 18 from 10:30 a.m. EST to 7 p.m. EST marking the first “Buffalo Wild Wings Stream of the Month.” Team Dignitas and Buffalo Wild Wings will be presenting a 1v1 amateur League of Legends tournament at Twitchcon this weekend and will be hosting an online amateur tournament in a few months. The three-hour 1v1 Amateur Legends Tournament and Team Dignitas Showdown will take place at Twitchcon on Sunday, Oct. 22. Team Dignitas representatives will allow first 16 Twitchcon attendees who have reached level 30 in one of esports’ most popular games to sign up and participate. All tournament participants each receive a custom gift bag. Finalists will be competing against Team Dignitas players Terry “Big” Chuong and Adrian “Adrian” Ma. The winner takes home the most coveted grand prize package which consists of a $300 Buffalo Wild Wings gift card and merchandise from Team Dignitas.
Not only is Dignitas the first esports team acquired by a sports ownership group, it is also among the very few esports brands to have a streaming deal with Facebook, and among Mountain Dew’s first sponsored teams in esports. With the partnership, Team Dignitas fans and esports bettors can look forward to seeing them in the popular restaurant and will leave a good effect not just to Team Dignitas but the continuous growth of the esports world. Seeing that reputable brands are confident enough to team up with some of the top esports teams can help cement the reputation of esports and attract bigger crowds even further.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
