Macau (June 26th 2017) – After announcing a Brazilian Counterstrike female team earlier this month, Grow uP eSports has now found a new addition to its competitive teams line-up. It’s with great pleasure that the organization introduces the League of Legends female team formerly known as “MissRippers” into their multinational community. Earlier this year, the team ranked first at the Hong Kong PolyU Tournament hosted by Dream Builder Esports. With the support of Forger Tech, a hardware company based in Hong Kong, Grow uP eSports will assist with the management of the team, while the team itself can focus on the rigorous training that these demanding competitions require for success.

In recent years, worldwide awareness of esports has reached new heights, and MissRippers tapped into the growing demand for female esports teams in Mainland China, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
These countries have started to invest in the development of women’s electronic sports teams, recognizing the huge long-term potential of the sport. Medium and small-sized women esports competitions are starting to be held throughout the region and the team’s captain is determined to lead this group of talented players to the pinnacle of esports success.
To kick-start their competitive season, the team will be fighting for a HK$20,000 Prize Pool, at the upcoming HKXP Female League of Legends Tournament, organized by the Li Ka Shing Foundation in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the HKSAR establishment. The team will be matched against three other Hong Kong teams: Team DreamForce, Stinga and PandaCute. HKXP will kick off on June 29th 2017 at Fashion World, with special guests such as Tat Gor, RZR Xian and TMD Aaron, attending the opening ceremony.
The team also hopes to promote esports in various ways, participating in and attending different activities related to gaming and sports. Team goals include adding more visibility for female gamers as well as participating in more competitive events throughout the ASEAN region. Long-term goals include being the first women’s team from the LMS region to compete in an international Esports Championship Series.
