"The significant response from 907 players during the registration phase is evidence of the growing popularity of esports in this region. As in the past, this year, we have strived to promote awareness of responsible behavior in the virtual world, which is of great importance for the current generation growing up in the digital age. We will continue to provide additional value to our participants, and considering the increasing interest, I believe we will positively impact a large part of the younger generation," said Branka Bajt, Brand Director at Hrvatski Telekom.
The message that "esports is not just a game" is the guiding principle of this year's Telekom eSports Championship. That is why influencers Lobanjica853, Aryssa641, Malajski Tapir, MarkoKC, and Crni Ante have supported it, aiming to spread the message about the importance of responsible behavior to young people, on the internet and in everyday life alike.
