NEW YORK (November 2nd, 2017) — REKT (www.rekt.gg), the innovative new game highlight platform, has partnered with FlipSid3 Tactics (www.flipsidetactics.com), one of the fastest growing teams in esports, to debut an exciting new fan engagement platform.
The REKT video platform empowers gamers to create and share customizable Snapchat style gaming highlights. Fans can connect with their favorite teams, players, & sponsors in branded showcase hubs. Each hub allows fans to easily edit their favorite esports highlights with stickers, GIFs, music, sounds, and more. Creators of the best videos are awarded prizes such as signed jerseys, hardware from the team’s sponsors, and other customized gear.
“Fan interaction has always been a priority for the FlipSid3 organization and our players. We are very excited that our fans will now have the opportunity to interact directly with their favorite FlipSid3 players, without having to attend a physical tournament, through the content they love most,” says FlipSid3 CEO Hector Rosario. “The ability for fans to create hilarious video content using our players’ own footage is a very novel experience.”
“Most esports teams have no physical presence and rely on social media to reach their fans. Our product brings fans one step closer to their favorite esports teams by letting them engage directly with their favorite team or player’s best gaming clips,” says REKT CEO Mo Hallaba. “Flipsid3 Tactics has some of the best fans in the world, and we can’t wait to see what they’ll do with our editing tools.”
The pilot program is expected to launch Q4 2017, with a REKT SaaS product being made available to all esports teams in early 2018.
