New UK eSports organisation Team Profuse has spoken out against the focus placed by other orgs on winnings and money.
They were founded last month by James Rodger, who has since been working alongisde Andy Kerr, and picked up a Call of Duty roster featuring Typical Nerd, Weeman, JME (not that one) and Hobbsy for i58, but were defeated in the quarter finals.
And they say there’s more to UK eSports than just money.
“I hope the organisation will grow step by step, plan to gain some new sponsors and potentially look for some investment to take us to the next level.
“As with most goals, we have no limits and keep moving on making Profuse successful. UK eSports right now is a growing industry, this online community has been built and it is something quite unique. I think all companies involved are doing a great job, providing tournaments and events for these players to compete at and exposure for their organisations.
“Without giving too much away, we are exploring lots of different avenues to make Profuse as big a success as possible.”
