Akshat Rathee, MD & Co-Founder, NODWIN Gaming has commented that “Northeast India has been a remarkable region in the Indian esports circuit that has shown consistent growth over time. Mrinmoy, existence, Deathmaker and many more like them have made it to top ranks in a number of titles. What I personally love about the 8 states put together is the diversity in the community, their hunger to excel, their undying passion for the game and their down-to-earth demeanour. With Northeast Esports Summit, we strive to bring forth the Northeast as a key region driving esports in the country.”
Note that the tournament is restricted to the residents of the North-Eastern states.
