Beginning from the occasion of International Women’s Day, Microgravity – which brings location-based entertainment concepts to India, under which they’ve launched an innovative 12,000 sqft gaming arena in Gurugram, Haryana – is in the hunt to sponsor an all-women squad of 5 members above the age of 16 for the Global Valorant Championship happening towards the end of 2021.
As the number of women gamers in India are rising slowly, but rising nonetheless, this would provide a great platform to showcase some of India’s finest female gaming talent.
Now, a simple explanation on how this works. Women – above the age of 16 – can register and play the Microgravity Gaming League for free. This gaming league will consist of a 5v5 character-based tactical shooter game called Valorant, among other games as well. All-women squads have to compete against each other and the winner will get a chance to represent India and compete at the Valorant global gaming championship. Individual women gamers could also get selected from their teams based on their performance in this tournament.
Microgravity have also mentioned that the ‘principal partners like Sony, HP, HTC provides cutting edge gaming tech and equipment’, which would be beneficial to compete at an international level.
“It gives us great pride to begin the search for India’s Top Women Gaming Squad on International Women’s Day. Under our campaign of #ItsHerGame, this initiative has been curated to promote gaming among women in India. We want to highlight the abilities and power of female gamers in the Indian gaming industry and take them to newer heights. The increasing population of women gamers in the past one year has given a boost and different spin to the entire gaming industry. We would like women of our country to represent India at global gaming championships, set a worldwide example and encourage other women gamers around the world”, said Rahul Bhattacharya, Co-Founder and MD, Microgravity.
