Developers & Gamers Unite

We believe our PCs power up the most vibrant movements pushing forward the gaming industry: eSports and the indie scene. That's why OpNoobs established its competitive division: E4I: eSports 4 Indie

We work to shape gamers into professionals players, and to transform indie games into a competitive phenomenon, exposing each title’s subtleties and unveiling its true potential in gameplay, through its most skilled and exhilarating encounters to date.

 

 

Our Philosophy

In designing E4I, we considered the needs of indie teams developing online multiplayers, we lauded the rise of eSports but deplored its barriers to entry, and we concluded that titles receiving positive feedback from Steam communities could use a platform to evolve and prosper competitively, and in turn, present skillful gamers with a constant flow of opportunities to prove themselves as eSports worthy.
