Paytm First Games has reported 200% growth in its user base and 4x increase in gameplays during the first half of 2020. Currently, Paytm First Games has over 25 million monthly active users and is expecting to cross 40 million in the next 2 months.

“There has been a 200 per cent growth in our user base and a 4X increase in gameplays in the first half of this year. Fantasy Cricket, Rummy, Ludo witnessed the highest engagement on the platform. What is interesting to observe is that while a large chunk of our monthly active users belongs to metropolitan cities, there has been an increasing contribution of the new users from tier-II, tier-III, and the rest of India towns,” Sudhanshu Gupta, COO of Paytm First Games, said.

Even gaming habits have gone through a drastic transformation as the average age group of online gamers has increased from 18-35 years to almost 18-55 years. “The engagement time has increased to almost 45 minutes for an average user. Also, mobile gaming has become a way of socialising with friends and family members as a means of community entertainment,” Gupta added.

Paytm First Games started small by adding a few games at a time on the main Paytm app itself. “It soon gained massive popularity among our users. From quickly entering the app to make payments, availing services, or ordering on the platform and exiting, we saw more users sticking around to play games and staying on the app for much longer. Slowly our games platform became so big and promising that it only made sense to branch it into a separate app and expanding the number of games,” Gupta said.

South Asia’s Leading esports company NODWIN Gaming is all set to do the exclusive Hindi broadcast of the Asia Pacific Last Chance Qualifiers dated from 11-17 October on Nodwin’s official Youtube channel.

The APAC LCQ will play the best teams from Korea, Japan, China, Southeast Asia and South Asia in the penultimate qualifiers for the Valorant Champions Tour. The South Asia region saw an open door to the APAC LCQ through the Valorant Conquerors Championship by Nodwin Gaming that earned the winner a slot in the qualifiers for VCT. Indian team Global Esports emerged victorious and advanced to the APAC LCQ.

For the first time in PC esports history, South Asia witnessed a total peak viewership of 60K and garnered 6 million views for the whole tournament. Out of which 76.6% was for the Hindi broadcast alone. The hype and the reception for the India qualifiers and the Grand Finals were phenomenal considering the number of people tuning in to watch the matches. The Grand Finals of VCC happened to be El-Classico, the synonym for the greatest rivalry in the Indian Valorant circuit between Global Esports and Velocity Gaming. The tournament ended with Global Esports winning 3-2 in a nailbiter. From losing India Qualifier #1 to winning the title, GE won hearts and praises from all around the world. We will get to see them competing in APAC LCQ for a slot in VCT.

“APAC LCQ is taking the finest team forward and we can’t wait to see how the competition pans out. After giving a great reception for VCC, I’m sure the fans will be eager to watch the LCQ as well and what could have been better than a dedicated Hindi broadcast by Nodwin itself. Let’s make our presence felt. All the best to the lads at Global Esports, make us proud”, said Akshat Rathee, MD & Co-Founder, NODWIN Gaming.

“LCQ broadcast in Hindi is a great way to bring our community together to cheer for Global Esports, and when you have the entire region rooting for you, anything is possible! Personally, I am a big fan of Global Esport’s journey so far and I will definitely be rooting for them on the Hindi broadcast on Nodwin Gaming’s channel. Do drop by to send some luck to the boys. All excited to see some Skrossi supremacy”, said Sukamal Pegu, Publishing Leader, India & South Asia, Riot Games

The hype created from the Valorant Conquerors Championship by NODWIN Gaming solidified the region’s presence in the global map of Valorant esports and its journey in the VCT.

The exclusive Hindi broadcast is aimed at bringing a local flavour to great competition for the ardent lovers of the game and the tournament in India.
