This Wednesday morning, via MSN, the acquisition of one of the most active e-sports platforms, dedicated to the creation of e-sport tournaments and competitions, was confirmed: Smash.gg
Smash.gg started its activity in 2015 with a small amateur cast, to end up currently supporting more than 6000 organizers of tournaments online and live.
The platform also released the news but rushed to emphasize that they will continue to work independently. Although they should be expected to get more support now that they have Microsoft behind them offering their services as additional support:
Since our beginnings in 2015, our goal has been to create active esports scenes around the games people love to play. Today, we’re excited to take the next step on this journey by joining Microsoft to help strengthen our existing relationships and explore new opportunities. It will remain a self-service eSports platform available to tournament organizers from all player communities. If you have any questions about existing tournaments, please contact [email protected]
