MTN DEW AMP GAME FUEL, the first drink made by gamers, for gamers, will excite gamers looking to take their gaming experience to the next level.”
“ASUS Republic of Gamers is proud to be providing the VG245H console gaming monitor for the CWL 2019 season, helping to deliver the best in class console gaming experience on the world’s largest stage. Both professional and amateur console gamers have recognized the importance of using a monitor with minimal input lag, low response times and a higher refresh rate as key to raising the bar for competitive gaming. We look forward to the most competitive CWL season yet,” said Vivian Lien, Head of Global Marketing for Gaming at Republic of Gamers, and Chief Marketing Officer at ASUS North America.
“ASTRO Gaming is back, sponsoring with the CWL for the 2018-19 season,” said Aron Drayer, VP of Marketing for ASTRO. “We’ll have our booth onsite at every LAN event to interact with the passionate CWL fans and athletes. We’re continuing to reward the top performing player at each LAN event with our custom designed MVP trophy. We’re powering Listen-Ins during every broadcast, and of course we’re bringing back the popular Trading Shots weekly video segments. We’re huge fans of Black Ops 4 and look forward to another great year of CWL competition!”
“Call of Duty esports and professional gaming are deeply rooted into our core DNA. We first designed SCUF controllers 8 years ago to cater for the fast action and competitive demands of Call of Duty esports, so it’s very humbling to see how far Call of Duty esports has come and seeing esports develop as a true industry,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Founder of SCUF Gaming. “Without Call of Duty esports, we would not be where we are so I thank everyone who has been involved in its growth, success and another year with the Call of Duty World League.”
