Epulze and VPgame are aiming to grow grassroots esports in Asia by partnering up and launching exciting new tournaments and events for esport fans and amateur players across the region.
The partnership with VPgame aims to grow grassroots esports and create more content for amateur gamers by combining the functionality and reach of the two esports platforms. The partnership will kick-off before Chinese New Year on February 8 with a grassroots Dota2 tournament followed by a special Valentine’s day event on February 14. In the future tournaments will be added for games such as CS:GO, VALORANT and League of Legends Wild Rift.
“At Epulze our vision is to entertain the world through esports. We have seen massive user growth in our primary game Dota 2, and as we add more game titles, we find that VPgame is the perfect partner to work with in reaching even more esports fans. It is really great to work with people who share the same passion for growing grassroots esports as we do” says Markus Lövgren, Co-Founder and CMO of Epulze.
Since its launch in May 2013, VPgame has accumulated rich and professional tournament data as well as a vast amount of esports news and updates.
“We are glad to be building this partnership with Epulze. Epulze is a currently leading the Dota 2 tournament platform and we share the same goal of growing grassroots esports. In the future, we hope for more parties to join us in building a more integrated global esports ecosystem together.” says Trinity Wu, Head of Marketing at VPgame.
