GankStars Partner with Twitch

We have grown so much over the years: from one team - to seven, from one game - to six. Mobile games are our stomping grounds. At the same time, we have successfully ventured onto PC and consoles and began to look for a streaming platform that could support our growing needs. 

We're excited to announce that, starting October 1, you can only find our professional players on Twitch! Without a doubt, Twitch has the most features and the widest audience right now; it is a perfect fit for organizations with teams on multiple platforms. Plus, purple goes well with black and gold! (Disagree? Watch the movie Kick-Ass.) 

Speaking of kick-ass - we're now building a best-in-class Twitch stream team. As usual, we have a unique spin on the idea and aren't interested in making a cookie-cutter stream team. If you are an amazing streamer with growth numbers to back it up, and want to be on an organized team whose #1 objective is to grow your brand, please reach out to our stream team lead Remix and schedule a chat.

Mobcrush - Thank You <3

"It was Autumn 2015, and I had just received confirmation from Mobcrush that they would sponsor us," recalls our CEO PwntByUkrainian. "I am quite certain I nearly cried that day. We were a new org and Mobcrush was our first major sponsor; and, I was in love with their idea of making mobile game streaming effortless. Mobcrush delivered on that promise."

Mobcrush had been nothing short of amazing partners and we are forever, deeply grateful for their support over the years. We can only hope that we made a similar impression on them.

Mobcrush - thank you for everything.

SuiJeneris Departs as Luke Takes on COO Role

Jeff “SuiJeneris” Chau announced today that he will be leaving GankStars to pursue a rare opportunity. Sui - thank you for the work you’ve done in the short time of being here: from supporting our Vainglory team to recruiting our Clash Royale roster to overall operations management. May the stars shine bright on your next adventure!

We’re delighted to announce that Luke “R34P3R” Hoffman will be taking over as COO. A GankStars veteran and an avid gamer, Luke brings with him experience of managing own business and true love for esports. Quiet and reserved when you first meet him, Luke packs a punch when it comes to execution and is universally-liked by those he works with. 

With that, we’re looking for a kick-ass to join us as the Director of Marketing. Of course: love of games and esports is required. If that’s you, drop us a message at
