The best players from their respective qualifiers will get the chance to work with noted regional influencers. ESE Entertainment notes that the influencers will not only train and mentor the finalists but will also compete alongside them in duo games in a final phase.
The influencers are Cyan68 and YuChengHao from China, GENJ1 Gaming and Zelarl from Japan, Duchi & Bbuggu and Sad TV from South Korea, Tien Zombie v4 and Quang Cuon from Vietnam, and Tecnosh and TobocoTV from Brazil.

Their passion for the game, dedication to their fanbase, and eagerness to play side-by-side with promising players, guarantees not only great fun but also high visibility of the project”
ESE will be responsible for the production and infrastructure of the show, including the development of the project concept, media plan, technology implementation, marketing, and overall campaign roll-out, the company announced.
