NetEase is looking to keep the esports momentum going in Southeast Asia by launching Top Clans 2020, one of the biggest esports tournaments of the year, with extravagant prize pools, multiple game titles, and a prestigious production value, in a full play-at-home, online format.
Top Clans 2020, slated to begin on September 26, 2020, has expanded to (5) five competitive game titles. Joining NetEase games Rules of Survival and MARVEL Super War in the roster are popular game titles DOTA 2, and TEKKEN 7, as well as NetEase’s newly released game, Tom and Jerry: Chase.
Esports is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, and perhaps one of the only few sports that isn’t significantly affected by the ongoing global pandemic. Esports’ flexibility when it comes to holding tournaments and competitions while operating remotely has allowed it to thrive in this crisis.
