Vita Paulina, Operation and Marketing Manager of Forest Interactive Indonesia, explains that the qualifying stage was fun, especially due to the active participation from the university students in supporting the tournament during all of the livestreams on TikTok.

“We appreciate the high spirit and enthusiasm shown by each participating team throughout the tournament. The students also showed good sportsmanship by coming on time on every occasion, even during the technical meeting. While supporters from the respective universities did not compete in the tournament, they still tuned in to the livestreams every week during the qualifying rounds and actively engaged with their peers in the stream’s comment section,” continued Vita, who also oversees FIGHT Esports’ operations in the country.

Angga Anugrah Putra, Head of Operations at TikTok Indonesia said in agreement: “The enthusiasm from many students in Indonesia in watching the FIGHT Campus Legend’s streams is a testament to the growth of the community and esports enthusiasts on TikTok. We hope that TikTok can be a platform that will open more opportunities for the gaming community to reach out to bigger audience, unearth their potential, and provided endless entertainment.”

The first 10 weeks of the inaugural varsity league’s qualifying stage saw numerous strong teams, even from universities outside of Java like the esports team from Poltek Negeri Pontianak, which is the team from Universitas Surabaya.

Additionally, Axel Arkenzo, the caster for the tournament, noted: “One unforgettable scene happened during the 6th week when Universitas Trisakti fought against Universitas Langlangbuana. They competed head-to-head and both teams battled it out strategically. The playback is worth watching over and over again, especially if you need a reference of a well-played game.”

This tournament, which is organized by FIGHT Esports in partnership with TikTok, is also supported by non-endemic brands such as Axis, Top Coffee, Lazada, and Yamaha, while esports industry players like Wallet Codes Indonesia, Moonton Indonesia, NYK Nemesis, and Evos Esports also came in as partners.
