From October 1st – 3rd The Machines Arena’s first tournament will be broadcast live on Twitch through official streaming partner FACEIT TV. James Bardolph, Tómas izedi Jóhannsson, and Kristján Einar share casting duties while 16 teams including Alliance and eRaEternity go head-to-head for $10,000 in prize money, some brand-new silverware, and the chance to go down in esports history as the first ever winners of the TMA Championships.
What is The Machines Arena?
A 4v4 hero shooter in the alpha stage of development, focused on short, explosive matches, social teamplay, and frantic combat. Competitors will choose from 6 heroes spread across 3 distinct roles: Tank, Support and Assault. So, whether soaking up damage in close combat with a Tank like Pyro, delivering AOE healing whilst slipping in long range skill shots with a support like Tesla, or putting lead down range and dropping orbital strikes in assault with Zulu – teams will have to coordinate flawlessly and make every second count to win.
Who is Competing?
● Copenhagen Flames
● MNM Gaming
● SuperMassive Blaze
● Team EndPoint
● Team Singularity
● Final Team TBC

As well as collecting cards to use in combat, players will also be able to level-up their characters with each battle and choose how to upgrade their skills tree to customise the gameplay.

This is why we’re excited to be partnering with IMX, a platform fully dedicated to gaming, as ImmutableX will help us to easily integrate these aspects,” said The Lost Glitches founder Alexey Ivanov.
Innovecs officially introduces Innovecs Games as its sub-brand into the global gaming market
The reframing of Innovecs Games as a sub-brand is aligned with the significant growth and transformation taking place within the Innovecs gaming practice. Along with the brand identity update, it embodies the energy and enthusiasm of the entire team and demonstrates the dynamism of Innovecs gaming studio.
Innovecs undertook this launch to officially position its Games Studio’s services and expertise in the global Game Development market. For the past seven years, the team has been steadily developing to eventually mark a major milestone in its evolution as a sub-brand of Innovecs.
“Since the inception of a specialized vertical in 2015, Innovecs Games has morphed into the cutting-edge company realm, with a team helping create game development solutions for more than 50 clients in 15 countries. During this time, they have developed over 200 projects, assisting game studios and startups in building innovative games.

As of 2022, Innovecs Games has provided a full range of end-to-end game development solutions for clients such as Zynga, JamCity, Warner Bros.

Innovecs Games also sought to showcase its growth in the past year with new brand elements, including the new logo and motto. Throughout its history, Innovecs Games has owed its evolution to the team steadily improving both service and business processes while consistently expanding expertise areas. Such a meaningful progression required re-evaluation of how Innovecs Games should appear to team members, partners and customers. The visual component of the sub-brand is coherent with the depth of the team’s experience, values and ideals they are committed to.
“Creating a visual concept of the sub-brand in particular, the team strives to accomplish its primary purpose of becoming the best partner for flagship game development studios. Innovecs Games remains a credible, approachable, and predictable ally for customers across game development industry”, — says Oleksii Isaiev, Head of Innovecs Games and VP of Delivery at Innovecs.
The exceptional capacity of Innovecs Games is rooted in the team’s passion for games, an earnest desire to contribute creatively and provide business value to the industry. Also, one of the core values of the Innovecs Games crew is freedom of expression and trust among customers and colleagues. The new visual style mirrors and radiates the team’s values.
“The most valuable virtue of Innovecs Games is a professional, friendly and integrated team, our people. Therefore, developing each team member and providing career prospects are among the Innovecs Games key points. We’d love to see our teammates grow and become experts of their field and leaders. Enabling our people growth with helpful trainings, clear career path and useful experience is part of our strategy. I honestly believe that the most precious thing a company can give to a team member is the knowledge to carry further along their career journey,” — Oleksii Isaiev shared his vision.
Since 2015, Innovecs Games provides a full range of complex solutions for game development, in which many satisfied clients were convinced.
