ZENWAY PRODUCTIONS ACQUIRES ESPORTS TEAM DEADLYKITTENS
Singapore – May 25, 2017 – Zenway Productions is proud to announce the acquisition of esports team DeadlyKittens. As a consistent team with top placements in the major tournaments they take part in – they were the Southeast Asian champions from 2015 to 2017 in the SEA Heroes of the Storm Global Championships (HGC) – DeadlyKittens has gained a reputation as one of the top teams to watch out for in the region.
Currently, DeadlyKittens consists of a Heroes of the Storm team and Zenway hopes to eventually expand to other games.
“With DeadlyKittens’ recent qualifying to represent SEA in Dreamhack, we felt like this would be a good time to do our part in supporting and growing the esports scene here,” says Lee Jian Ming, founder of Zenway Productions. “We have close bonds with the Heroes community here in SEA and have watched this particular team grow from strength to strength. I feel that they have the potential to push themselves even further with proper support”.
With a USD$250,000 prize pool, the HGC is a major event where all top teams of Heroes of the Storm can look forward to in order to compete at the highest level.
“With Zenway Productions’ support, we have reached another milestone for our team,” says Michael “DK.Mirr” Luo, team captain of DeadlyKittens. “There is lots of talent in this region to be nurtured and I hope there will be much more support for esports to come in future. We definitely have the skills to make our mark in the global scene.
DeadlyKittens will be making their way to Dreamhack Summer 2017, held in Sweden, to represent SEA at the Heroes of the Storm Global Championship Mid-Season Brawl.
