Malta-based esports tournament organiser Eden Esports has secured a partnership with h8r.gg to create a new female Counter-Strike 2 event.

Called FemmeFury: Queens of the Server, the pilot online event will utilise h8r.gg’s Pocket Production — a fully cloud-based studio powered by game data and automation tools — to create a broadcast without a broadcasting crew present.

As a result, the event will only feature talent and players on the server. Despite this, the event will still look to create a full-scale production set-up which includes a two-caster setup, game observation, replays, custom HUD, animations and overlays with banners, stats and advertisements. 

By utilising this technology, the aim is to create a professional streaming experience and modern tier-2 event whilst reducing costs associated with running a tournament.

The inaugural event will be hosted between July 7th-14th and looks to take advantage of the Counter-Strike season break to put a spotlight on female competition. In total, 16 teams will compete for its $5,000 prize pool. Eden Esports has yet to disclose which organisations will take part in the event.

According to Eden Esports, FemmeFury is expected to be part of a future series of competitions.

Sergey Bidzan, CEO of Eden Esports, commented:  “Esports, unlike traditional sports, is built on data. Every click, every step on the server is data. And every piece of data can be processed and become a trigger for action. Solutions like Pocket Production may never replace broadcast at a top tier but can surely handle the needs of a solid majority of esports online events in the foreseeable future. 

“A good quality production that requires no investment, no physical space, and is scalable in a matter of minutes, can significantly lower the cost of esports events we witness today. Creating new opportunities on the market and even improving the integrity of online events. We’re happy to be among the first to test it.”

Founded in 2014, Eden Esports has organised a variety of Counter-Strike events and local initiatives. This includes the Malta Vibes esports series and the Champion of Champions Tour, a large-scale CS2 series that was created in 2022.
