The following is a press release provided to InvenGlobal and has been published verbatim.
Elo Hell Esports is proud to announce Project Inferno, a new venture that aims to give players, professionals, and fans a new look into the semipro Overwatch scene. This project will give aspiring pros the same kind of resources, publicity, and professionalism they'll get at higher levels of play, fostering development while taking fans along for the ride.
To drive these goals, Elo Hell Esports has brought on seasoned coach Ridouan "ioStux" Bouzrou
as Coaching Director, who will be working alongside Jennifer "LemonKiwi" Pichette
as Content Manager. Under creative direction and leadership from Dallas Fuel Coach Justin "Jayne" Conroy and Elo Hell Esports, ioStux and LemonKiwi are dedicated to building a long-lasting framework for talent development, and broadcasting each step along the way.
Through the creation of top tier teams, Project Inferno will tell the stories of the many paths that lead to pro by following the teams’ progress with fully streamed and casted open tryouts to tournament preparation and more. ioStux explained the purpose of showcasing stories of esports in this new perspective and the importance of infastructural development in driving it forward:
“We want to provide Overwatch Esports fans with a new perspective on
Overwatch Esports that turns gamertags into actual people. We want them to share the emotions and experiences that our players go through. We want people to care about our players and the journey that they are going through, allowing our players to not only develop their skillsets, but also build a fanbase for themselves."
Project Inferno's first team, Elo Hell Dante, will be launching in the NA region in Q4
2019. Aspiring Overwatch pros and esports hopefuls of all kinds should note that applications for the public tryouts are NOW OPEN.
