Kinguin has entered into a partnership with CS:GO pro Maikel “Maikelele” Bill and his new community gaming platform Plearn, where gamers can join events and compete in a variety of challenges to win prizes.
Maikelele and Kinguin have a long-standing friendship, stemming from the days Maikelele played under the Team Kinguin banner, winning Gaming Paradise 2015 and placing in the top 8 at the ESL One Cologne 2015 Major.
Now Kinguin and Maikelele are joining forces in a community-driven partnership for Maikelele’s platform, Plearn, where Kinguin will be providing prizes for challenge winners and participants.
“I am thrilled to be partnering with Kinguin, a company I share fond memories of, going back to my professional CS:GO career. Without the support of the community, I wouldn’t be where I am today – this is my way of giving back. Plearn is a passion project aimed at motivating players to bring their game to a whole new level while also having the chance to win great prizes. Given my history with Kinguin, and their continuous involvement and support of the CS:GO scene, they are the perfect partner for Plearn,” Maikel “Maikelele” Bill, Founder of Plearn, said.
“We are beyond excited to be partnering with a great platform led by such a great player and friend. CS:GO is a much loved game and we have always cherished its community so it is important to Kinguin to play a part in bringing this project to life. We are looking forward to helping grow a platform that puts fun and players first,” Viktor Romaniuk Wanli, Founder and CEO of Kinguin, said.
