Melbourne, FL (October 6, 2022) – ASA Entertainment announced the Super Girl Gamer Series’ Summer Season VALORANT and Rocket League Champions with Misfits Black taking home the VALORANT title and Team BG winning the Rocket League Championships.
Weekly online Qualifier Tournaments took place from July 30 – August 21 with tremendous success and high-level game play from some of the top female players in North America and Europe. After four straight weeks of competitive play, the top four VALORANT teams and the top four Rocket League teams earned a spot into the Super Girl Gamer Summer Season Championships with $17,500 in prize money for the taking.
After hard fought semifinal and finals matches, the two Champions emerged. VALORANT was held live at the Super Girl Festival in Oceanside, CA where Misfits swept Mystic Venus 2 – 0 in the Finals for their first LAN title. In Rocket League, Team BG rolled through the field and defeated Team Pinky 4 – 1 in the Grand Finals.
“This is a really important series for women, and I am so happy to be a part of it,” said Emmalee “EMUHLEET” Garrido, Captain of Evil Geniuses’ women’s VALORANT team.’ “It’s such a great step for Super Girl Gamer to expand its reach to women throughout North America via the seasonal tournament series and the online qualifiers. Most people recognize how critical it is to create meaningful opportunities for women, and it’s been gratifying to watch the progress Super Girl has made over the years and their long-term commitment to supporting women.”
In its sixth year, the Super Girl Gamer Series was created to provide a platform for female and non-binary gamers in a safe environment and to help both inspire and empower women to take a larger role within esports. Ultimately, the goal is to facilitate a future where women and men have an equal playing field within the gaming industry. Not only is the series supported by the top female players, but the broadcast talent also features passionate female leaders including Stephanie “missharvey” Harvey, Lisa “LucyMae” Malambri, and Elyse “herculyse” Herrera.
The Series continues to provide women with opportunities going into the Super Girl Gamer Fall Season starting October 8, 2022 featuring League of Legends and Hearthstone. The Fall Season will also consist of four weekly qualifier tournaments per title that lead into a Championships weekend held November 12 – 13, 2022 with $12,500 in prize money at stake.
The Super Girl Gamer Series and its message is supported by several like-minded brands that are passionate about the importance of this platform and want to take a leadership role in developing equality for women in gaming. Nissan, the U.S. Marines, Logitech G, RESPAWN, Pixio, Twitch, and Facebook Gaming are each using their influence to amplify the Super Girl values and provide opportunities for women in gaming.
“We are exceptionally grateful to have such a committed group of brand partners who are zealous about creating more diversity and inclusion in gaming,” said Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment and producer of the Super Girl Series. “These companies understand that only through our collective voice can we change the culture and eliminate the toxicity that prevents women from more actively participating in the esports community.”
