Petr Parshakov spoke on the scientific seminar at University of Vigo, Spain

Petr Parshakov spoke on the scientific seminar of School of Economics and Business Administration at University of Vigo, Spain on the 18th January, where he presented the results of the study «Team vs. Individual Tournaments: Evidence from Prize Structure in eSports», implemented jointly with Dennis Coates in the framework of PhD thesis at University of Vigo.

The distinctions between spreads of prize of individual and team tournaments in eSports are analysed in this study. The issue of information asymmetry considering the effort of each player becomes more important for team competitions than for individual ones. According to the results, eSports tournaments correspond to the classical tournament theory of Rosen, however there is a difference between the motivation of groups and individuals. The presentation of the study is attached below.

The International Laboratory of Intangible-driven economy fulfils the project “paper-based PhD”, providing the opportunity for Laboratory members to write PhD thesis based on journal publications under the supervision of foreign professors and to get PhD degree at University of Vigo.
