Earlier this year, Wanyoo opened its fourth studio in the UK at shopping centre Westfield Stratford in East London.
Abdiqani ‘AB’ Ahmed, Founder and CEO of Lionscreed, said: “It’s not based solely on our game-winning strategies or the team’s performance, but it’s really about our ongoing mission to create a community that everyone can engage with, an interactive social networking scene for all gamers. What we call our family, our pride.”
Lionscreed was formed in 2019 and since then has jumped into various titles such as CS:GO, League of Legends, Rocket League, and Rainbow 6 Siege.
Zhaorong Chen, CEO of Wanyoo Esports, added: “We welcome every type of player here. From those who are just starting out to veterans, we are always listening, learning, and engaging with our teams and players to ensure they have a high-quality experience and are provided with every opportunity to grow their talents.
“Lionscreed also believes in supporting their players in chasing their dreams and rising to professional levels, so it is a partnership that recognizes both our missions.”
