Qlan is a new social networking app designed for gamers and aims to boost the esports community in India. The platform serves as a bridge between gamers, enthusiasts, gaming organizations and more. Qlan will commence its first public beta and will start onboarding gamers for it in the fourth week of October.
What is Qlan and who is it for?
The game networking app has a holistic approach towards the evolving gaming ecosystem in India and through its social media networking, it wants to change the way players in the gaming and esports community get discovered and compete with each other. Now that more and more young players are playing games, the time is ripe for an integrated approach towards the esports ecosystem which helps those who want to take it up professionally. All of this and more will be possible on Qlan where gamers will make verified connections with their peers, support and grow their content and also help organizations efficiently discover more players.
The app is a one-stop solution to:
- Create custom Solo, Squad & Org profiles
- Showcase gaming skills by syncing in-game statistics
- Access AI enabled gamer matchmaking for verified connections
- Share gaming & esports content with an option to monetize early
- Promote esports tournaments & IPs to a target audience
- Get recognized & discovered as an esports/gaming professional
“At Qlan we dedicated several months on research and surveyed over 5,000 gamers to garner insights to better understand their problems. This is what encouraged us to build a dedicated platform for the gaming and esports community,” said Sagar Nair, Co-Founder & CEO, Qlan.
On Qlan, players will be able to create custom profiles, share in-game stats, matchmaking for verified connections, sharing clips and more such audio-visual content, monetization, promote esports tournaments and get recognized by esports organizations.
“Gamers communicate differently, they need to showcase themselves on a purpose-driven platform, whether they’re looking to go pro with esports contracts and celebrity-style “partner” streaming agreements or just looking for their next gig as a gaming professional. Qlan is built with a focused vision on creating a robust and sustainable gaming and esports ecosystem starting in India then world over,” Nair added.
Qlan has already seen over 10,000 registrations within a span of just two weeks on qlan.gg and the beta launch is scheduled for the fourth week of October.
While commenting on the app, Co-Founder & CBO, Navin Talreja, said, “We saw how the absence of a professional esports hub limits the overall growth of the gaming ecosystem. We reached out and spoke to 40+ gaming organisations in India to understand their pain points. The need for them to get access to and engage with a targeted audience is higher than ever, with the clutter across existing platforms. The barriers are immense for gaming content creators to monetize their work which is something Qlan will actively address. Gaming is much bigger than just going pro and Qlan will facilitate a place for gamers, creators and orgs to bond over their passion for gaming and bolster their universes.”
