Announcing a new Community Direction for Awaken
We’re excited today to announce that, our staff will be continuing to work with the board of directors and staff to help execute a greater vision of Awaken. Eric "Spectre" Rodriguez also will be recontinuing his position as Chief Administrative Officer of Awaken.
Within eSports, we have a place in the hearts of many of you. You’ve supported us through a lot of ups and downs. We’ve maintained a strong presence in e-sports and gaming entertainment and have grown a lot over the last year while seeing many changes.
For Awaken to continue onward and be competitive, we’ll need to evolve our business and address some age old issues.
We need to develop the proper systems to be a competitive business as e-sports evolves.
We need to connect to our roots, and interact on a deeper level with our supporters. This means better communication and a focus on bringing you closer to what’s happening on the front lines and behind the scenes at Awaken.
Eric, as our Chief Administrative Officer has a strong background in leadership that we need to develop as a business. His primary role will be in executing our community's vision within our company. He will also take on most of the infrastructure and internal building blocks to maintain and grow Awaken as a great, progressive company.
With that being said, we’re relaunching our all female program program dedicated to forming an equal opportunity for professional female players and entertainers in the gaming industry. This means there is potential with building and developing powerhouse teams of professional gamers and entertainers to appreciate them and their talent that they have and the uniqueness that they can bring to the table.
With our YouTube we are going to be implementing a content direction for our Call of Duty and CSGO division to be able to provide a unique entertainment experience and interact with our supporters as that is our mission on social media, we want streamers who can provide that same experience and show the dedication and passion within gaming entertainment and maybe do some creative and innovative ways to grow our reach.
This is what we know what we can commit to. On the way is a brand new content staff, each who will have a separate announcement in the coming month. We’ve expanded Awaken to not only cover our entire social network but also deliver quality video to our supporters.
Eric had this to say about the community initative:
“I’m honored to be continuing my time to such a progressive organization. Awaken has won my heart and respect with its unique culture and its vision to help the people in e-sports to grow. My primary focus is always on the personal development of other beings and organizations. This will be a prime opportunity to connect with our fanbase on a new level than ever before. You’ll begin to see more of livestreams via Twitch and more frequent and consistent uploads from our YouTube channel along with your input being put into the content we do."
You’ll have more opportunities to interact with Eric, our players and creators on a personal level through this. As Administrative Officer, Eric will be making the final calls on our marketing, broadcasting & business direction.
Our founder, Tristin Chambers had this to say about the new additions:
“What I’ve always loved about being a part of Awaken is engaging with the people who support us. For the last year I had to focus on new challenges that come from within not only my YouTube channel as it's been kicking off, but with us as a prolific brand, and it is because of that, we have lost connection with the public. Awaken is finally at the point where we want to get connected back to the public and the industry. Even if I am not present within Awaken, Eric and our staff wants what is best for all of you, which is providing a new and be a large part of our community.”
We don’t want to only create great players and directos at Awaken. We want to help players grow into a successful brand and we’re in the process of developing comprehensive programs to help our players become the strongest versions of themselves. We believe that this industry is underutilizing its resources to create positive change, strong viable and unique gaming entertainment, and opportunities to broaden the gaming world as a whole, and through the audiences that e-sports drives we can organize events that make an impact on the industry and world as a whole.
