Culver City, Calif. – July 25, 2018 – Sony Crackle announced today their first ESports docu-series titled “Hook’d,” in partnership with NRG ESports and Complex Networks, slated to premiere Friday, July 27, with subsequent three to five-minute episodes rolling out on Monday, July 30, Wednesday, August 1, and Wednesday, August 15. The teaser provides a first-look at the improbable journey of 21-year-old Eduardo Deno (aka HookGangGod), an up-and-coming ESports gamer. Simultaneously, Sony Crackle will host a virtual Twitch livestream event to kick-off the series on July 27.

 

Filmed in the final month leading up to the largest and longest-running fighting game tournaments in the world – The Evolution Championship Series (Evo) in Las Vegas from August 3-5, “Hook’d” will immerse viewers in Hook’s professional world. Viewers will connect and hear Hook’s story of how he has overcome challenges as a young adult to contend for the Evo world title in Dragon Ball FighterZ and the influences that help guide him there including his New Jersey neighbor, mentor, and professional NRG ESports teammate Nairoby Quezada (aka Nairo), as well as New Jersey-born NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal.

 

Hook was recently discovered by NRG, the ESports mega-team financially backed by the co-owners of the Sacramento Kings, as well as celebrities like Shaquille O’Neal, electronic music DJ Tiësto, and Alex Rodriguez. Hook rapidly ascended the North East local and conference fighting game competitions in just under four months to defeat some of the top ranked players in the world at the recent Summit of Power invitational. As the rookie, Evo is an opportunity for Hook to prove to everyone, including himself that he is a fighter – a fighter in a fighting game world, and a fighter to succeed out of the hard realities of his hometown of Paterson, New Jersey. Viewers will be given unprecedented access into Hook’s process and training, following him from his home to the international stage in Las Vegas as he prepares for the fight of his life.

 

“Hook’d” is produced by Complex Networks. The series is executive produced by Justin Killion, Brandon Killion, Andy Miller and Melissa Brooks.

University of California, Berkeley Announces Esports Partnership with NRG Esports/SF Shock

Untitled.png

PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

University of California, Berkeley Announces
Groundbreaking Esports Partnership with NRG Esports/SF Shock;
New Esports Community Center

The first of its kind partnership between a major university and professional esports organization includes Women in Gaming, Career Center and educational initiatives

SAN FRANCISCO –  April 18, 2018 – NRG Esports, the San Francisco Shock and the University of California, Berkeley today announced an innovative partnership between the leading public University and the Northern California-based professional esports organization. As a premier sponsor of the Cal Esports program, NRG and the San Francisco Shock will collaborate with UC Berkeley and additional sponsors to launch the new campus esports community center at the Foothill complex in fall 2018.

The announcement comes on the heels of the Cal Esports team’s second consecutive win at the recent Fiesta Bowl Overwatch Collegiate National Championship, and as the SF Shock begin the second half of the inaugural Overwatch League Season. This partnership with NRG and the SF Shock marks the latest expansion of the University’s new esports program, which takes an integrated approach that incorporates multiple aspects of the student experience and focuses on five overarching pillars: community, competition, social responsibility, wellness and lifelong learning.

“Over the past few years, esports has gained a lot of momentum, and we’re incredibly proud of our student athletes,” said Stephen Sutton, Interim Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at UC Berkeley. “Student interest has been a major driving force behind our program. Our unique, holistic approach puts UC Berkeley’s public mission at its core. We’ve quickly learned that esports isn’t just about gaming — it’s a growing industry and lifestyle. We’re excited to partner with the SF Shock to create career pathways and educational opportunities for students in this expanding job market.”

 

“By investing in this esports program, we’re investing in the future: technology, reinvented community, new learning models, and of course, the students,” said Andy Miller, owner and CEO of NRG and the San Francisco Shock. “Not only is UC Berkeley one of the most prestigious institutions for higher learning in the world, but it also runs the best collegiate esports program in the country. We look forward to the many things we can do together not just in our Northern California market, but hopefully throughout the esports community as well.” 

In addition to competitive gaming, the partnership will provide support for educational and professional development programs for esports student athletes, including a community innovation lab, exploring tie-ins to for-credit courses, connections to a professional, competitive team for students interested in becoming professional players, industry internships and job fairs in association with the campus Career Center, and an alumni gaming chapter.

The partnership will also highlight a mindfulness, health and wellness program for gamers, as well as a Women in Gaming Initiative to create a gateway for more female gamers to play more games, with more confidence. UC Berkeley student and gaming community leader Cherie Lin, who is also co-leading the Women in Gaming initiative, believes UC Berkeley is full of active and committed gamers, brought together by their shared passion for esports. “Thanks to the new center and our partnerships,” Lin said, “we can build on that dedication to promote gender equality in the gaming community, in addition to creating new opportunities for the entire student body.” 

The new Shock and NRG sponsored Cal Esports community center, located at an historically under-scheduled side of campus, will provide students a place to gather, watch matches and hone gaming skills. Beyond being an esports arena, the center will serve as a campus hub for collegiate esports and gaming-related activities with ongoing events such as mixers, TED-style talks for gamers, meetings with industry leaders and student lab hours. 

The first co-sponsored event will take place at UC Berkeley’s campus on Wednesday, April 18, 5-9 p.m. PST. Students will be invited to an SF Shock viewing party as the team takes on the Dallas Fuel. Reporters interested in attending the event should RSVP by 4 p.m. day of the event to:  adam.ratliff@berkeley.edu

Team-Based Competition Comes to the World’s Largest Mobile Esports Competition with the Clash Royale League

Cloud9, Team SoloMid, Tribe Gaming, Immortals, NRG, Complexity, 100 Thieves and Counter Logic Gaming to Represent the CRL North American League and Build Rosters for 2018 Competition

 Every Player in the World Given the Chance to Be Recruited by a Pro Team, Advance to the World Finals Event and Compete for Their Share of the $1M Up for Grabs

Helsinki - April 3, 2018 - Supercell, the developers of Clash Royale, welcome eight of North America’s top esports organizations, Cloud9 Esports, Team SoloMid, Tribe Gaming, Immortals, NRG, Complexity, 100 Thieves and Counter Logic Gaming, to the Clash Royale League (CRL), the all-new team-based esports league for the world’s best players. Clash Royale made history in 2017 with its inaugural competition which crowned sergioramos:) from Mexico as the best player in the world. This year, Supercell offered players the chance to be signed by one of these elite pro teams through an in-game event called the Clash Royale League Challenge. Twenty five million players competed to qualify for the CRL in 2018, and just under 7,000 players from 113 different countries made it to the next round. In the coming months, pro teams will create their rosters and prepare to compete for their spot in the World Finals event that will take place later this year, as well as their share of the $1 Million.

The eight teams representing North America in the CRL are Cloud9, Team SoloMid, Tribe Gaming, Immortals, NRG, Complexity, 100 Thieves and Counter Logic Gaming. Each of these teams will be building a roster for their Clash Royale team from the pool of players that completed the in-game Clash Royale League Challenge. The European region will be represented by FNATIC, Misfits, SK Gaming, G2 Esports, Team Liquid, Team Queso, Team Dignitas and Allegiance. Mainland China will be represented by EDG.M, GO, JDG, LGD, NOVA, OP, SNAKE, WE and Asia will be represented by OGN Entus, Sandbox, Kingzone, OP.GG, GameWith, PONOS Sports, DetonatioN Gaming, FAV Gaming, AHQ ESPORTS CLUB, KIX, Chaostheroy and Bren Esports. The teams representing the Latin American region of the CRL will be announced at a later date.

“It’s tremendous how quickly Clash Royale revealed itself to be the next big esport and we are impressed with Supercell’s thoughtful steps to build an exciting global league,” said Jack Etienne, owner of Cloud9. “It’s also incredible that the Clash Royale League gives every single player the opportunity to go pro, giving us the opportunity to draft new and upcoming talent. We’ll be watching to see who rises to the top over the next few months of competitive play and can’t wait to put our team together and compete for a spot at the World Finals.”

Reflecting the game’s global player base, the CRL gives the top players and teams from around the world an opportunity to compete for prizes and glory. Two CRL regions, Mainland China and Asia (which includes all Asian countries other than China), will have a Spring Season which runs from March 23-Jun 3 in China, and April 27 - July 14 in Asia. Other regions in the world will begin competing with the Fall Season in August, leading up to a World Finals event which will take place in Winter 2018. Along with the CRL, a new tournament format will be introduced that will make the competitions more fun to watch, with an emphasis on finding the best team as opposed to individual player. Each of the CRL regions will be comprised of 4-12 teams, with 4-6 players per team. Top teams from each of the regions will advance to the World Finals.

“The level of enthusiasm we’ve seen from the most respected esports teams in the world is as humbling as it is exciting, and we’re looking forward to supporting them in order to grow the Clash Royale esports ecosystem for our players,” said Tim Ebner, who oversees esports at Supercell. “Staying true to the Supercell vision of making games everyone can enjoy for years and years, the Clash Royale League will

continue to offer as many players as possible an open path to competing at the highest level.”

"Having seen the growth of Clash Royale first hand since its launch, I couldn't be more thrilled about the unveiling of the Clash Royale League,” said Patrick "Chief Pat" Carney, CEO of Tribe Gaming. "At Tribe, we're excited to be welcoming in a number of iconic esports organizations into the Clash Royale ecosystem, and we look forward to doing battle with them in each and every arena."

Clash Royale is a real-time multiplayer game starring the Royales, your favorite Clash characters, and much, much more. In the game, players collect and upgrade dozens of cards featuring the Clash of Clans troops, spells and defenses Clash players know and love, as well as the Royales: Princes, Knights, Baby Dragons and more. Players must knock the enemy King and Princesses from their towers to defeat their opponents and win Trophies, Crowns and glory in the Arena. Players are able to form a Clan to share cards and build their very own battle community and lead the Clash Royale Family to victory!
