After interacting with over 5000 young adults from Mumbai to Delhi to Punjab to Indore, the brand had a reason to believe that a new narrative was steadily developing in India’s burgeoning e-gaming world.“We identified the need for teaching the sport as the primary task for ourselves. This and then giving people the opportunity to compete against each other in live tournaments and sharpen their skills will form the focus of our efforts in the coming few years”, adds GautamThawani, Business Head is live from May 17, 2016.
