ArtStudio is just too good not to leave a review for. I’ve been using Photoshop on my PC for drawing, photo editing, and professional work for the past six years and when I finally got an iPad with Apple Pencil support I was really hoping Procreate or one of the numerous other drawing/editing apps would be able to replace the feel of PS. Unfortunately, even though Procreate is indeed an amazing drawing program, it still doesn’t really satisfy my need for the familiar feel of photoshop and drawing with photoshop brushes. ArtStudio Pro solved all my problems. It’s got everything you could need and MORE (I especially love their amazing smoothing/line weight algorithm and pressure customization). It’s basically Photoshop, but without having to pay the ridiculous Adobe subscription every month. The price for this app is perfect, in my opinion (and honestly it’s even a bit low, for all it’s able to accomplish) and I really want to give a huge thank you to everyone who worked on/is working on this app and updating it. You’ve saved me so much money and frustration. Hats of to you!

MLG deals with creating and streaming gaming events, organizing professional competitions and running competitive gaming leagues. The new company is going to become a part of Activision Blizzard Media Networks division, led by former ESPN CEO Steve Bornstein and MLG Co-founder Mike Sepso.

Our acquisition of Major League Gaming’s business furthers our plans to create the ESPN of esports. MLG’s ability to create premium content and its proven broadcast technology platform – including its live streaming capabilities – strengthens our strategic position in competitive gaming. MLG has an incredibly strong and seasoned team and a thriving community. Together, we will create new ways to celebrate players and their unique skills, dedication and commitment to gaming. We are excited to add Sundance and the entire MLG esports team to our competitive gaming initiatives.

Our mission for over 12 years has been to promote and expand the growth of competitive gaming worldwide, and today the industry is at a key inflection point as its popularity soars and rivals that of many traditional professional sports. This acquisition and Activision Blizzard’s commitment to competitive gaming will expand the opportunities for gamers to be recognized and celebrated for their competitive excellence.

MLG will continue to work with MLG.tv, MLG Pro Circuit and GameBattles. There will be continuous support of all the partners and publishers from all over the world. If you are not entirely familiar with these projects, here’s a little explanation:

  • MLG.tv is a premium online broadcast network for professional-level esports.
  • MLG Pro Circuit is the esports league in North America.
  • GameBattles is the online gaming tournament system, which works across consoles, PC and mobile platforms.

The most recent projections show, that by 2017, esports will have over 300 million viewers. It will become a huge business, which will most definitely start to earn hundreds of millions of dollars. no wonder Activision Blizzard is desperately trying to get more esport companies at its disposal. It would be interesting to see, what Blizzard can do with the help of MLG’s help.
