Picture a huge arena, filled with thousands of fans cheering as teams battle it out for the championship title — no, we’re not talking about the Superbowl. We’re talking about the fastest growing spectator sport in the world: esports.
Last year, the League of Legends World Championship finals had a record-breaking 100+ million views, according to Business Insider. Now, the industry is growing more mainstream with esports broadcast on live TV.
But there’s a glaring gap in the world of esports: there are no esports tournaments for mobile games, even though mobile gaming is 48% of the global games market (Newzoo).
The problem is latency, or how quickly a game responds to the gamer’s commands.
Phones are less reliable than other gaming devices, and with all the gameplay happening via touchscreen, any lagging or accidental mis-tap could cost a player a championship game. Although there are bluetooth game controllers for phones, they’re plagued by latency and connectivity issues that make them unusable for esports.
For mobile gaming to go pro, what’s needed is a wired controller that provides console-quality gameplay.
We have created the go-to accessory for a superior mobile gaming experience for all gamers, whether they’re playing for fun or training for the first-ever mobile gaming tournament!
T2M’s Rotor Riot controller is a mass-market mobile gaming accessory designed to let gamers play without worrying about lagging or latency. There’s no required software, downloads, Bluetooth pairing, batteries, or even charging. Our controller is plug and play: gamers can plug the controller into their devices and immediately start playing.
Because our controller connects to devices via a lightning cable, gamers get more seamless and reliable gameplay, just like what you’d see in PC or console gaming. With our controller, mobile gameplay has the control and precision needed for esports gaming tournaments and events.
The Rotor Riot controller is available both for iOS and Android devices. Both versions of the controller have the same benefits and features which include:
- Plug and play: lightning/USB wired for guaranteed connectivity and latency free gaming
- ZeroG device holder for balanced, light-weight gameplay that helps prevent hand cramping while gaming (patent pending)
- Full-size console buttons, joysticks, and triggers including L3/R3
- Improved 8 way D-pad for greater control
- Power pass through charging for unlimited game play — no need to break for charging (currently iOS version)!
- Companion app Ludo Mapp directs users to:
- 1,000 compatible games in the iOS app store
- 500 compatible games in the Google Play Store
Our controller is sold through brick and mortar stores as well as on Amazon. Across all channels, the Rotor Riot controller is affordable and competitively priced at $50.
Currently, the majority of T2M’s controller sales are in North America. We plan to expand globally, with the goal of having half our sales in the United States, 30% in Europe and 20% in Asia.
Ludu Mapp Companion App:
Ludu Mapp makes it easy for gamers to know which games are compatible with our Rotor Riot controller. It provides a community for mobile gamers, including esports players. T2M generates affiliate revenue from special offers displayed in the Ludu Mapp.
We’re uniquely positioned to take advantage of the growing esports market through our ownership of T2M Sports. T2M Sports is working with one of the largest esports promoters to create the first ever mobile gaming tournament. The company also anticipates collaborations with ESL, Epic and Apple.
T2M owns 80% of T2M Sports and will benefit from future T2M Sports mobile esports tournaments, which could also drive T2M’s Rotor Riot console sales. There is also the potential to develop more mobile esports accessories.
One of the largest sectors of the entertainment industry is in your pocket. The gaming market this year is projected to be larger than both the film and music markets combined, at $160 billion. Of that, 48% or $77 billion will come from mobile gaming, per Newzoo.
The mobile gaming market is projected to surpass $200 billion by 2023, according to TechCrunch. Newzoo reports that there are currently 2.6 billion mobile gamers, and forecasts that this number will reach 3 billion in 2023. This year, mobile is expected to have a 2.8x lead over PC gaming as the biggest gaming platform, according to The Verge.
Meanwhile, esports tournaments and events let skilled, professional gamers compete live for audiences across the globe. In 2019, the esports global audience topped over 440 million spectators, according to Newzoo. And the sector is projected to grow to over $1 billion in 2020 (World Economic Forum). Increased interest in esports has also created a higher demand for gaming accessories, and the market is expected to continue to grow between now and 2025, according to Mordor Intelligence.
Our products are mass market, non-platform specific, and are of better value compared to competitors such as Razer, Steel Series, and Xbox. Our controller also provides latency-free gameplay, while competing wireless mobile gaming controllers have latency and connectivity issues.
Because the mobile gaming market is evolving quickly, there is a competitive advantage for companies that bring their innovations to market swiftly. We compete on quality, innovation and price, and are aiming to compete on ubiquity. We are also the only product on the market that can satisfy the demand of the esports gamer.
