DnD Sports Changes Name To RPG Sports

Earlier this week, I posted about DnD Sports, an upcoming competitive streaming D&D "e-sports" tournament run by D&D Beyond and Encounter Roleplaying, using the Roll20 platform, complete with large cash prizes. As of today, the name of the tournament has been changed to RPG Sports, and dndsports.tv now redirects to rpgsports.tv.


They state that this is a rebranding in order to expand the scope of the tournament beyond D&D. The tournament wasn't anything to do with WotC, as Nathan Stewart made clear: "This is not something [WotC] is driving. One of the keys to our current success is giving the community tools to do what they want and trusting them. Different styles for different folks."

RPGSports explained the change:

"We’ve heard a lot of great feedback, but one thing we weren’t expecting was SO much interest for us to expand outside of just Dungeons & Dragons! Therefore, we’ve decided to broaden our approach and become RPGSports!

We have a new Twitch channel here!

This wider umbrella means that we can position ourselves to easily collaborate with other tabletop games. What other tabletop games would you like to see in a competitive style in the future?

Of course, in other ways this doesn’t change too much. The first RPGSports tournament this November will still be played using the Dungeons & Dragons fifth edition rules. We noticed some confusion online, and so wanted to take this opportunity to clarify that this is an EncounterRoleplay production. While D&DBeyond are sponsoring this tournament, Wizards of the Coast are not affiliated with RPGSports.

We’re excited to start releasing more information on rules, to announce the star-studded teams, and to tell you how you can get involved in RPGSports!

Thanks for sticking with us while this exciting project continues to expand and grow."

Both D&D Beyond and Roll20 are licensees of D&D from WotC.

Well, this opens up their scope quite a lot. Now I'm thinking, are there some good PVP oriented RPGs?
