mousesports enters Mobile Gaming
Today, German esports staple mousesports, announces its entry into mobile esports with the signing of world class Vainglory team, Rebirth of Empire.
Super Evil Megacorp’s Vainglory is the leading touchscreen esport and was the fastest growing mobile game on Twitch in 2015, with over 150 million minutes watched. Together with the new team, mousesports is looking to expand its esports legacy into the mobile gaming world.
The German based team, Rebirth of Empire, was founded in 2015 by Alican Üzüm and Orkan Bolat. Together with teammates Deniz Heinzelmann and Benedict Ward, they will help build mouseports’ Vainglory division. The young group recently won the Vainglory Master Series and finished third at the European Winter Live Championships in London. "We have risen to the pinnacle of Vainglory with a home grown group of awesome players, of which I am proud to be a part. Joining Mousesports is a huge window of opportunity and excitement for all of us," says Ward.
With the expansion into Vainglory, mousesports adds another dimension to its variety of teams. "We have always been known for fielding Germany's elite teams in any game we enter. Once we decided to get into the booming mobile esports market, the former Rebirth of Empire team was our obvious choice. This young team has impressed us with their passion and dedication and I am sure mousesports Vainglory is going to be a success story," says Cengiz Tüylü, CEO of mousesports.
The new Vainglory division will be completed by analyst Enes Aydemir and manager Terence Valentine. “We wanted to partner with the best organization possible and mousesports is Germany’s premier esports club - we couldn’t be any happier”, says Valentine. The team will jump right into action under the mousesports flag, attending the Vainglory European Spring Season Qualifiers on April 9th.
