Today I am pleased to announce the partnership of IGN and Team ReIGN. IGN will not only be providing the support needed to maintain the ReIGN team house, but collaborating with ReIGN to provide quality live and pre-recorded media coverage to the StarCraft community. Much of this content will be shown through the Team ReIGN stream, while other content will be featured as part of IPL TV. IGN will also assist in the creation of the official Team ReIGN website.
We're extremely happy with what IGN has worked on in it's brief time in eSports including IPL1, 2 & 3, IPL TV, and IPL Team Arena. We believe this partnership will help bolster IPL in many of its avenues into eSports.
And before you ask, while we have been in talks with IGN for quite some time, it was just a serendipitous coincidence that KiWiKaKi picked a name for us that contained the letters IGN. We're not actually that clever intentionally.
One of my goals for the IGN Pro League is to help support the eSports community, and bring eSports talent into the spotlight. It is a true pleasure for me to have the opportunity to work with Team ReIGN, who has been extremely successful in both our IPL individual and team tournaments.
