UK esports organisation Radiant Esports have moved into multiplayer shooter game H1Z1: King of the Kill.
They have acquired the roster of Zero Gaming, who are currently sixth in the largest community project in the under 18 scene: the Chicken Dinners Ladder.
The roster includes:
Radiant Esports already have Rainbow 6 Siege, Paladins and Crossfire teams, and felt the time was right to move into H1Z1.
"I can see so much potential for the game when private servers are re-introduced."
Nathan "NoVaa" Edmonds, Radiant Esports
Radiant's 17-year-old founder Nathan "NoVaa" Edmonds told Esports News UK: "We have decided to expand out into H1Z1 as we are impressed with the exponential growth of the esport, with a huge LAN event being announced. It's just a shame it's 18+.
"But I can see so much potential for the game when private servers are re-introduced, this will lead to so many benefits."
On the Chicken Dinners Ladder league and the growth of H1Z1, NoVaa said: "Out of a current 80+ teams we stay at sixth place. Matches are taking place via public servers, due to the recent update that no longer allows private servers on the new updated map.
"However, Battleground is becoming a lead competitor. When private servers are back, this will allow outside companies to expand into H1Z1 and host their own leagues and tournaments.
"Therefore there will be more interaction within the community, more to play for and of course more money being pumped into the esport title, which will help it grow."
