Singapore — Video game developer Riot Games has appointed GosuGamers as its official media partner for this year’s Wild Rift Champions Southeast Asia Finals. The agreement enables GosuGamers to provide coverage for the tournament on the esports front as well as dive deeper into individual teams that are making waves in the MOBA mobile game, League of Legends: Wild Rift.
Esther Quek, head of marketing of GosuGamers, said that they want to capture the attention of the young generation, gaming community, and Wild Rift lovers by creating more meaningful, inspiring and entertaining content for the community.
“By delivering content that is entertaining, educational, and vital to these fans, we hope to continue to be the best place to visit when it comes to global esports tournaments that have the potential to create positive impacts,” Quek said.
Of the 11 teams that have qualified for WCS 2022, GosuGamers will be inviting fans for a closer look at Team Flash from Vietnam, RRQ from the Philippines, Buriram United Esports from Thailand, and Flash Wolves from Taiwan. Esports fans can enjoy more updates surrounding these teams and the tournament itself via GosuGamers, alongside editorial and social content.
In addition to the premier esports coverage that is the signature of GosuGamers, the portal will also be holding the GosuAwards: Wild Rift Champions SEA Finals, designed to recognise players and teams for their outstanding efforts at the tournament, as well as serve as a reminder of the excellent play on display.
The GosuAwards will run after the WCS Finals from May 15-29, 2022. The winners will fall under the two categories of either Editor or Community Choice. The winners of Best Newcomers, Best Player in Each Position, Best Moments of the Tournament, and the Overall MVP will be recognised with coveted GosuAwards plaques that are fully customised.
