GamersOrigin grows partnership with Nicecactus

French esports organisation GamersOrigin has established a partnership with player performance platform Nicecactus.

The agreement will see GamersOrigin share its knowledge and resources, while Nicecactus will offer up its registered user base for talent scouting purposes.

Nicecactus provides tools for gamers to improve their skills through training, analysis, and competition. It hosts daily tournaments in titles such as League of Legends, Fortnite, and Counter-Strike Global Offensive. Thousands of users are said to have registered to its website hoping to level up their game and join a professional team.

It’s exactly that user base that will be pivotal in Nicecactus’ partnership with GamersOrigin which competes in the likes of Fortnite, Hearthstone, Apex Legends, and League of Legends. GamersOrigin has launched its own League of Legends Academy as a direct result of the agreement, which will offer cherry-picked amateurs from Nicecactus’ platform the opportunity to start their esports careers.

In return, GamersOrigin’s coaches and analysts will lend their expertise through “a host of events and activities held throughout the year,” while its players will compete in Nicecactus’ tournaments, according to a release. The team will also offer its training centre for special sessions with Nicecactus subscribers.

Both parties stated that their arrangement was “driven by our shared desire of bringing high-level competitive gaming to everyone” in separate announcements posted on their respective websites.
