‘Esportz Premier Series 2021,’ India’s first year-long esports tournament, is the flagship competitive series of Esportz.in, the gaming branch of Gig Work Private Limited, with around ₹40,00,000 as the Prize pool. The series was developed to bring gamers together from varied genres, including PC, console and mobile in one spot to complete the cycle from online qualifiers to the LAN finale. Since January, when the first qualification round went live, Esportz has continued to provide an open-to-all platform where professional and aspiring gamers can play on an equal basis.
Every qualifier is live-streamed for fifteen days in a month on the Esportz YouTube channel, allowing fans to cheer for their favourite teams, resulting in a total of one million-plus views and 7.1 million plus impressions from this series. So far, the championship has attracted over 800 teams and 2,900 individual participants.
The LAN finale in December will feature the best players and teams that qualified through the online qualifications. The finale will deliver an immersive experience for all attendees with music and their favourite characters coming to life during the ‘Cosplay Championship’
The first online Free Fire qualifier winner, Dead soul from 4 Unknown, stated, “We are overjoyed to have qualified, and now all we have to do is wait for the LAN Event in December.”
The first online Valorant qualifier winner, Hell Ranger from Global Esports, stated,:“There are four open qualifiers that give enough slots to all the teams to play and qualify for the LAN event, at the same time the top teams, even if they get upset in one of the qualifiers, can always come and play second, third, or even the fourth – so I think it is a pretty good format.”
Charanjyot Singh, the first online FIFA qualifier winner, said,: “The win felt incredible after a very tough set of games with Saransh. The shift of series from online to LAN would be something to cherish for all us gamers as there have been no LAN tournaments for a year now, and I’m looking forward to it”
“It’s incredible to see how well the Esports Premier Series has been welcomed since its inception,” said Vasu Chaturvedi, project manager at Garena Esports.
