Reading Time: 2 minutes

Revenant Esports, an esports, lifestyle, and gaming organization headquartered in Mumbai, has announced a revamped roster for the 2024 Brawl Stars esports season. The new roster retains Indian star and decorated Brawl Stars athlete, Ashmit “Sergeant Clash” Singh, with the addition of two talents from Japan.

Revenant Esports’ Brawl Stars roster for 2024 is as follows:

● Ashmit “Sergeant Clash” Singh

● Takuya “Menmi” Kitano

● Kenji “Ken-G” Oda

● Karthikk “Kizuki” Adithiyha S: Analyst

Sergeant Clash is undoubtedly the most decorated Indian Brawl Stars esports player. The 19-year-old has been competing actively since 2020, making him an experienced veteran despite his young age. Over the years, he has won numerous Monthly Finals in the Brawl Stars Championship, but his most notable achievements came in 2023 with Revenant.

Throughout 2023, Revenant Esports placed first in four of the six Monthly Finals for the Brawl Stars Championship, securing a slot at the World Finals LCQ in Katowice, Poland. After another

impressive win here, the team made it to the prestigious 2023 World Finals, competing against the best of the world for a share of the $750,000 prize pool. However, the team could only manage a fifth to eighth-place finish.

Commenting on the new team Sergeant Clash said, “After an immensely successful 2023 season where we conquered the India region and even made it to the World Finals in Sweden, we are now aiming even higher. With our revamped lineup featuring the talented Menmi and Ken-G, I am confident that we have what it takes to make it to the Brawl Stars World Finals once again despite the tougher format which has decreased the overall number of slots. For now, we are working on increasing our communication and synergy as the 2024 Brawl Stars Championship kicks off.”

Sergeant Clash will be paired with Ken-G and Menmi, two Japanese players who have also been actively competing since 2021. Ken-G has some notable achievements, being a part of the ZETA DIVISION ONE roster previously, where he won the 2022 Mid-Season Invitational and finished second in the World Finals in the same year. Menmi, on the other hand, is a two-time winner of the East Asia Monthly Finals in 2023, previously playing for REJECT, one of the biggest esports orgs from Japan.

Furthermore, Kizuki is set to be the team’s analyst, having previously offered his services to some of the most notable names in competitive Brawl Stars esports including SK Gaming and Aphelion Esports.

Rohit Jagasia, the Founder and CEO of Revenant Esports, said, “For the 2024 esports season, Supercell has made some changes to the Brawl Stars ecosystem by merging the India region with the larger APAC region. As a result, it was imperative for us to scout talent from the entire region and we landed on Ken-G and Menmi, who along with Sergeant Clash perfectly complement each other. Both players are from Japan, and having competed in the East Asia region, which continues to be one of the toughest in Brawl Stars esports, bring a wealth of crucial experience which will help this team reach new heights.”

The Revenant Esports Brawl Stars roster will begin its journey in the 2024 Brawl Stars Championship this month with the APAC Monthly Qualifier. They will be competing throughout the year to make it to the 2024 World Finals, which will have a prize pool of up to $2 million.

Macau Gaming Growth to Slow Down Amid China’s Clampdown on Illegal Money Exchanges

Published

Macau’s gaming sector is likely to see a slowdown in EBITDA growth in June and July due to the mainland’s crackdown on illegal money exchange operations in Macau, according to a recent forecast by Morgan Stanley.

China’s Ministry of Public Security has launched a major campaign to target “money exchange gangs” providing large-scale cash exchange and loan sharking services to mainland Chinese gamblers in Macau. These illicit activities have been facilitating the flow of funds out of China, which authorities view as a threat to financial stability.

The crackdown has already yielded results, with police across China reporting successful operations that have uncovered millions in illegal exchange activities and the arrest of dozens of suspects. However, analysts warn that disrupting these unofficial currency exchange channels could potentially lead to a slowdown in mainland Chinese travel to Macau’s gaming industry.

Praveen K Choudhary, Gareth Leung and Stephen W Grambling of Morgan Stanley project that the second quarter will see the first negative quarter-on-quarter growth in both mass gross gaming revenue (GGR) and corporate EBITDA since the post-Covid-19 reopening. Mass GGR is expected to decline 2% quarter-on-quarter, reaching 113% of 2019 levels, while corporate EBITDA is forecast to decrease 7% quarter-on-quarter, reaching 80% of pre-pandemic levels.

The brokerage firm predicts that June and July will see a slowdown due to the money exchange crackdown, while weaker macroeconomic conditions, consumption, and retail sales in China could persist in the third quarter and further impact the Macau market.

“It’s a huge honor to be a strategic partner with the Chinese Media Group and the Esports World Cup Foundation with the establishment of the CMG National Institute for Esports Development, which marks another key sign of Beijing’s support for esports development,” Chairman of VSPO, Asia’s biggest esports operator, Dino Ying said.

Top distributor for emerging markets secures well-known and respected sales leader to continue expansion of its global footprint 

QTech Games, the leading distributor for all emerging markets, has appointed Crystal Nadal to the position of Sales Director.

Crystal is a well-known and respected operator in the industry, armed with a wealth of international expertise within business development and sales that is uniquely fine-tuned for Asia’s patchwork make-up of territories.

Crystal arrives at QTech Games after successful recent stints at Tom Horn Gaming, where she acted as Head of Business Development for Asia; Aura Gaming, where she was COO; and Solid Gaming where she held a range of senior marketing roles across an array of varied content – including live-dealer and assorted igaming solutions for the fragmented Asian market. In each case, she diligently built the brand’s reputation in gaming markets from India to the Far East, demonstrating a keen eye for strategy and new sales across both digital and land-based sectors.

Now Crystal brings those skills to bear at the industry’s leading platform and distributor for growth territories. She will be responsible for managing QTech Games’ existing partners throughout the world’s largest continent, and spearheading the expansion of QTech Games’ burgeoning influence into other untapped “margin” markets.

Crystal Nadal said: “I’ve always based my business relationships on the ability to add value. Working with QTech Games, I’ve not only found the premier distributor for delivering localised games in Asia, but also a strong, experienced team that are client-focused and share an ongoing commitment to tailor their offering to make it work for the customer.

“My new colleagues at QTech Games have excellent relationships across the sector, and their proprietary platform has quickly become the trailblazer in our home territory of Asia. They’re trusted, supportive, collaborative and well-regarded. I can’t get behind a better story than that.”

Philip Doftvik, CEO of QTech Games, commented: “We’re thrilled that Crystal has joined the QTech Games team and she’s hit the ground running. With her winning mindset and attitude, she is also a perfect fit in our company culture. Her experience and contacts in sales and business development are second to none in the Asia landscape, so she’ll be a real asset to both the company and all our clients.

“Securing the best executive talent has always been a main driver of our ability to scale. Therefore, we’re naturally delighted that Crystal is now taking the wheel for further business development and sales in our core continent.”
