ELEAGUE, in collaboration with marketing partner Dell Gaming, has announced it will leverage eye-tracking technology to offer fans unprecedented access to the minds of professional Street Fighter players at the upcoming Street Fighter V Invitational 2018.

“As esports continue to grow, technology presents unique opportunities for fans to have a window into the decision making of these highly skilled pro players,” said Robert Occhialini, Vice President, esports Products and Technology, Turner Sports.

“Like in traditional sports, these esports stars have distinct abilities that we can now show as part of ELEAGUE’s live event coverage, and we are excited to offer viewers an unprecedented level of access to live fighting game competition through our partnership with Dell.”

It will be the first major fighting game tournament to track both competitors’ in-game eye movements at the same time.

During the event, micro projectors and sensors supplied by Tobii Group will track each player’s eye movements. Later, that data can be used to create a visual indication of where the competitors look throughout a given match

ELEAGUE’s commentary team will be able to use these enhanced highlights to offer fans a more detailed understanding of how the world’s best Street Fighter players gain match-deciding advantages during pivotal in-game moments.

The Invitational will see 22 of the world’s elite players, along with two rising amateurs who emerged from ELEAGUE The Challenger: Street Fighter V, compete for $250,000 in prize money.

The five-week series begins Friday, June 1, at 3 p.m. ET on Twitch. In the United States, featured Friday matches will air on TBS at 11 p.m. ET/PT each week.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
