LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Allied Esports, a global esports entertainment company and a subsidiary of Allied Esports Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AESE), has been selected by interactive live streaming platform Trovo to create and produce a new community esports tournament series for gamers in North America, Latin America and Europe that will run throughout 2021. The Trovo Titans program, featuring over 100 events and 280 days of competition through weekly matches and monthly tournaments, will distribute $250,000 in prize pools for participants, plus additional incentives and rewards for viewers.
Trovo Titans kicks off in May with the Trovo Titans Birthday Bash, a month-long series of multiplayer competitions in celebration of Trovo’s one-year anniversary. Gamers in all three regions can sign up for Trovo Titans Birthday Bash community tournaments, as well as additional weekly events, featuring game genres such as MOBA, FPS, Battle Royale and more.
“We are delighted to help Trovo build on a successful first year with a unique program designed to engage their community week-in and week-out for the rest of 2021,” said Jud Hannigan, CEO of Allied Esports. “Gamers, streamers and viewers have thrived in creating a fun, inclusive community within the Trovo platform, and we believe the Trovo Titans program will help amplify this wave of excitement and growth.”
“The best way to celebrate our first anniversary is to provide more opportunities to play, compete, win and share that experience with our community across the globe,” said Allen Chan, Senior Operations Manager at Trovo. “With a variety of games to play and an engaging esports format, Trovo Titans provides something for everyone in the gaming community, and I look forward to watching this amazing entertainment platform grow all year long.”
Trovo Titans will include community tournaments across a wide variety of game genres and titles customized for each region. In addition to prize pools for each event, players will have the chance to win cash and prizes by accumulating Titan Points, which can be earned through event participation, tournament placement, and engagement on the Trovo platform and Trovo Titans Discord. The series will also open doors for aspiring casters, with hundreds of opportunities to join a tournament as a community caster.
Observed game feeds of weekly competitions and the qualifying rounds of multi-day tournaments will be provided to community casters to be livestreamed on Trovo. The Finals of multi-day tournaments – a total of 70 live broadcasts – will be produced and streamed on the Trovo Titans channel, where viewers will also be rewarded with surprises throughout the year.
Trovo Titans is the second collaboration between Allied Esports and Trovo following a successful December 2020 program – Trovo Holiday Royale – that featured three $10,000 Battle Royale tournaments across nine days with an additional $20,000 cash reward system for players who advanced throughout the tournament. In addition, viewers were rewarded with “sub” prizes while tuning in to watch the action. The Battle Royale festival of tournaments was produced from HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas and attracted over 1,000 players from North America and Latin America.
