MEC to Offer Mobile Gamers a Wildcard Entry Chance at World’s Fastest Gamer Competition
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Millennial Esports Corp is going to offer the mobile gamers a wildcard entry into MEC’s World’s Fastest Gamer competition via its Gear.Club mobile racing game. Entry for World’s Fastest Gamer will begin on July 20 and continues through to August 8.

“This is a perfect example of the synergies we are able to achieve with our intellectual property and assets. This initiative will introduce a new motorsports-focused audience to Gear.Club while also linking World’s Fastest Gamer with the huge and growing mobile gaming market,” Millennial Esports President, Darren Cox said.

World’s Fastest Gamer will bring together eight hand-picked esports racing champions from different gaming titles, gaming platforms and countries. Two wildcard entrants – one from desktop gaming and one from the Gear.Club mobile platform will complete the ten finalists. These ten gamers will then compete for the opportunity to race an entire season for real starting in early 2020.

“The beauty of esports racing is the costs for entry are significantly lower than trying to compete in the real world. But not everyone can afford a gaming console, let alone a full-on PC and gaming rig. We want to open up the opportunity to everyone. If you have a smartphone or mobile device – you can enter World’s Fastest Gamer thanks to Gear.Club,” Cox said.

“For World’s Fastest Gamer, we are trying to find the best of the best, no matter who they are. We want to know whether there is an incredibly talented gamer out there who had never even considered they might be fast enough to compete in real life,” Cox added.

Darren Cox, Founder of Nissan’s famed GT Academy, now behind the wheel as CEO

Millennial Esports Corp. (“Millennial” or the “Company,” TSX VENTURE: GAME, OTCQB: MLLLF), has appointed Darren Cox as company CEO and President, effective immediately. The founder of Nissan and Sony’s GT Academy, Cox previously served as Nissan’s Head of Global Motorsport. Also the man behind World’s Fastest Gamer, Cox has spent more than two decades immersed in the automotive, motorsport, and gaming industries, earning the moniker “The Godfather of Esports Racing.”

“Darren has proven throughout his career and during his time with Millennial that he is an innovative thinker with an innate ability to get things done,” said Board member Peter Liabotis. “In appointing Darren as CEO, we have not only secured the best man for the job, we have also reaffirmed our commitment to esports racing and marketing data for the growing esports industry.”

Cox made his mark in the motorsport industry as Global Motorsport Director for Nissan and head of Global Sales and Marketing for the Nissan Motorsport Brand. During his time with Nissan, Cox was responsible for the ground-breaking GT Academy program between 2008 and 2015, which took PlayStation gamers and turned them into international racing drivers for the Japanese manufacturer.

Previously, during his 18-year tenure at the Renault Nissan Alliance, Cox held several senior positions including Digital Marketing Director for Europe where he was responsible for, amongst other areas, customer data for marketing. It was in this role that Cox first realized the incredible value of data collection and analysis.

“I have seen the potential of Millennial Esports from day one and am excited to shape the company’s future with the talented group of people we have assembled,” said Cox in welcoming his move from Global CMO and President to CEO and President.

“That future is an unwavering focus on esports racing and data provision for the esports industry as a whole. These are still white spaces with a huge upside in terms of revenue that we can exploit through a combination of my background and our assets, such as our in-house gaming studio Eden Games and our data experts at Stream Hatchet.”

Cox replaces hospitality and technology industry veteran Steve Shoemaker, who has successfully completed his work in restructuring the company. “Steve has done a tremendous job leading the company to focus on its core esports racing and data analytics assets while reducing its overhead cost structure and moving the company towards profitability. We would like to thank Steve for his efforts in positioning the company for its next phase of growth and wish him well in his next endeavour,” said Board member Bryan Reyhani.
