Well, in a brief summary, our plans for this league and our different game launches were quite literally turned upside down. The launch of our Rocket League portion fell flat, and for reasons quite honestly unknown. Our marketing strategy went off without a hitch; our outreach was far and wide, so theoretically we should have had participants pouring in. Although, that was not the case. All that said, what was the lesson learned (and quite an expensive one might we add) here?… Stick to your roots.
This organization was founded in 2017, with hardly a thought of taking the competitive aspect of eSports seriously, much less branching off to 6 different games, acquiring whole teams, and now starting up a well-designed eSports league positioned to dominate part of the platform. HydraCore Gaming was established on the back of Rainbow Six: Siege and that is where a majority of our reputation is nested, so why didn’t we just start the launch there? To make an example of how multiverse this organization is? To show we are ready to leap into other games in multi-faceted competitive stages? There really is no answer, but all that matters is that HydraCorp’s HydraCore League is OFFICIALLY announcing the launch of its R6S branch!
