'An eSports organisation should not be all about money' – Team Profuse

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.

James told eSports News UK: “We decided we wanted a family atmosphere inside the organisation, giving all the members a stable place to grow as a team. The main goal is to do that whilst maintaining a professional atmosphere, with all of the team sustaining a high work ethic.

“Now I believe that as well as supporting a team financially, we provide our players with a respected and friendly organisation. What I mean by this is we help them with any issues outside of the game by discussing any problems in group chats, arranging their league games etc, this enables them to focus on the game and perform at the best of their ability.

“An organisation should not be all about money. The players and staff at Profuse are like a family, we have jokes, support each other and as an owner it’s great to see our small community.”

James added: “A perfect example is our League of Legends team, they have no interest in CoD yet still supported our team through i58. Any organisation could potentially provide funding, I believe Profuse is unique, we dedicate our team to supporting and helping out teams, in and out of game.

“Our goals for 2016 are to try and reach CWL qualification and just grow our different aspects of social media. We would like a supportive fanbase to surround us, and enable our teams to compete and the highest level of eSports.”

Team Profuse are on the hunt for several staff and players as they try to expand.

Their CSGO roster currently consists of BluRRyy, Synzo, Alfie, Nexio and M1kker.

“We are now focusing our attention on other aspects of the organisation, including CSGO – we have a team in the EEG league – Gears of War, Call Of Duty and League Of legends. All respective teams are competing in leagues.

“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.”

Someone should make a fan owned Esports team for the UK. Make it a community interest company and sell shares to fans. That way it wouldn’t be about the money.
