The world of eSports is still growing, but the day is only so long. Taking the time to find the right eSports tournament to compete in eats into the time you could spend playing. A new feature from eSports tournament service Battlefy aims to find the right tournament for players of any skill level.
Vancouver, B.C.-based Battlefy lets people organize eSports tournaments with one centralized platform. By combining signup forms, brackets, deciding teams and managing livestreams, the company aims to provide a more streamlined tournament experience.
Battlefy Discovery launched today, giving players personalized recommendations for daily tournaments. Discovery takes into account skill level and favorite games, comparing them against the tens of thousands of tournaments organized on Battlefy. Each day, players get up to three recommendations of upcoming tournaments for games like League of Legends, Dota2, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm and Call of Duty.
“With the number of eSports tournaments growing exponentially, it has become more difficult to find quality tournaments that fit your schedule,” said Battlefy founder and CEO Jason Xu. “Battlefy works with super talented tournament organizers who have created phenomenal experiences for eSports fans. We’re incredibly excited to be able to share their events with players around the world through Battlefy Discovery.”
Battlefy has a range of investors and advisors from across the gaming world, including former Eidos president Keith Boesky, Machinima chairman Allen DeBevoise and Maker Studios senior vice president Sam Wick.
The 17-person company has currently raised $3.5 million to build out its eSports tournament service.
