Intema Solutions Inc. (TSXV: ITM) (OTC: ITMZF) is excited to provide an update on Parabellum Media Inc. (“Parabellum”), owner of Parabellum Esports and Northern Shield Academy. Intema recently signed a letter of intent to acquire Parabellum (see press release dated December 8, 2021).
On December 12, 2021, Parabellum Esports won a very significant promotion match to earn a spot in the highly coveted Rainbow Six North American Pro League. The team is planning to move to Las Vegas to begin training for the 2022 season. They will be joined by some of the biggest esports teams in the world, including Astralis, TSM and Spacestation Gaming.
The 2021 North American League saw nine teams compete for over US$400,000 in prizing plus the chance to compete at the Six Invitational, which has a prize pool of US$3,000,000. The league is played on Local Area Network (LAN) in Las Vegas, which will continue to be the case throughout the 2022 season.
“We are gearing up to build a championship company and it’s only fitting that our competitive esports team is already picking up major accolades,” said Laurent Benezra, President and CEO of Intema.
Rainbow Six Esports continues to see major growth in 2021. It is ranked in the top 10 most-played PC games based on monthly users and in the top 10 in earnings for competitive play.1
“We are tremendously proud of our team and its accomplishment in getting into the pro league. But we aren’t here for participation trophies, we’re here for championships, and that’s exactly what we intend to bring home,” said Ben Feferman, CEO of Amuka Esports, the parent company of Parabellum Esports.
The Parabellum Esports team was founded and managed by Chris Lamarucciola. The 4/5 Canadian roster includes P3NGU1N, Eskaa, SpiriTz, KoolAid and Melted. Parabellum has already won over US$100,000 in 2021, which includes two North American Challenger League Stage wins and a top 12 finish at the 2021 Six Invitational in Paris. The team’s next match will be in January 2022, as it is one of four teams to compete for the last spot in the Six Invitational, which will take place February 8-10, 2022, at Place Bell in Montreal.
