Compelling content showcasing the game’s strategic depth and Esports potential was produced. This included high-quality video guides, tutorials, and competitive gameplay streams. Additionally, collaborations with established Esports players and streamers were fostered to promote the competitive scene and reach a wider audience within the gaming community.
