Belgrade, Serbia - Dec. 20, 2017 - GNation, a community of companies and individuals leading innovation in the gaming industry, announced today that Team Secret, the world’s #1 Dota 2 team, has joined the world’s biggest gaming nation. This partnership represents the long-term commitment of both parties to improve gamers’ life through continuous education and popularize esports across the globe.

This collaboration came to life because Team Secret recognized GNation as a valuable partner in expanding the global esports ecosystem. Aside from promoting esports, the goal of this partnership is to elevate the whole competitive gaming scene and help non-pro players participate more, so they too can reap the benefits of this up-and-coming industry.

“GNation is providing a great service to esports, helping us professionals become more independent and committed to our sport, and enhancing the community experience for all. I am very excited that Team Secret will be a part of this movement. Breaking into the world of esports often means navigating uncharted waters – for newcomers there is more to learn every year, but also more opportunity to get involved as the scene grows larger. GNation will help gamers worldwide seek and fulfill their passion,” Team Secret CEO John Yao said.

“I'm very happy that the world champions have recognized the value GNation is delivering to the whole gaming ecosystem. Having champions on board means we will be able to push esports – and the gaming industry as a whole – that extra mile, with products that will be tested and approved by Team Secret,” GNation CEO Sergey Sholom said.

GNation recently partnered with Team DetonatioN, the best esports team in Japan, to enhance its presence in the Asian gaming industry. The move has already had a big effect on the Japanese gaming and esports community, and Team DetonatioN is already testing GNation’s products. After having released its Desktop Client Application, which offers a range of benefits for gamers – including discounts on games purchased in GNation’s game store – GNation is also on the path to releasing other products in its ecosystem. These products are already approved by biggest esports teams around the world.

To kick off the partnership, Team Secret and GNation have joined forces to create a suite of free ebooks to help gamers turn their passion into a profession. You can download your free copy here:
