Streaming Partnership Expands Complexity-Limit’s Reach to New Audiences
Complexity-Limit, the world’s #1 raiding World of Warcraft guild and partner of Complexity Gaming, announced an exclusive Chinese media rights deal with DouYu, one of China’s leading streaming platforms, for the guild’s upcoming Race to World First event. As part of the partnership, DouYu will produce its own Complexity-Limit Race to World First broadcast exclusively for the Chinese region.
“We aim to deliver engaging content to our fans both at home and overseas,” said Kyle Bautista, COO, Complexity Gaming. “Through our partnership with DouYu, we will be able to bring one of the most unique experiences in gaming to our Complexity-Limit fanbase in China and contribute to the growth of World of Warcraft fandom around the world.”
Not only will the deal enable Complexity-Limit fans in the Chinese region to have access to a tailored broadcast experience for the most renowned World of Warcraft event of the year, but it will also help to boost visibility and global reach of the North American guild. DouYu will adapt and localize the raw Complexity-Limit broadcast footage for its 194 million monthly viewers.
“In recent years, World of Warcraft RWF events have gradually gained more and more attention on live streaming platforms in China, each time creating one peak viewer number after another,” said Cheng Chao, COO, DouYu. “By partnering with Complexity-Limit, one of the best World of Warcraft guilds in the world, DouYu will provide the best content and viewing experience to the Chinese World of Warcraft community.”
Over the years, grassroots Race to World First events have entertained millions of viewers over weeks on end, establishing itself as one of the most thrilling and unique esports competitions. In February 2020, Complexity-Limit overcame this daunting task to become the Race to World First: Ny’alotha champion, defeating the first nine of 12 bosses as well as the final boss days ahead of the next closest guild. The decisive victory solidified the guild as a global leader in World of Warcraft and made Complexity-Limit the first North American guild to win a Race to World First event in ten years.
Complexity-Limit’s Race to World First streams kick off on December 15. To stay up to date on the latest Complexity-Limit Race to World First news, be sure to follow the guild on Twitter. For more information on Complexity-Limit, please visit https://www.limit-guild.com/.
