The Canadian esports organization Gaimin Gladiators is setting its sights beyond Dota 2 prize money.

Gaimin Gladiators, renowned for its Dota 2 team, aims to expand its horizons at the prestigious Esports World Cup (EWC) 2024 by collaborating with the Indonesian Free Fire team INDOSTARS and the Malaysian MLBB Women team HomeGirls, recently announced on their X (Twitter) account.

The team tried their luck on the mobile games

In addition to PC games, Gaimin Gladiators has a PUBG MOBILE division. However, they missed the 2024 EWC because they didn’t rank top 6 in the EMEA qualifier. Despite this setback, the battle continues as they partner with Southeast Asian teams for other mobile game titles.

INDOSTARS, competing under the name INDOSTARS x GG, is one of the 18 teams in the Free Fire EWC 2024, contending for a total prize pool of $1,000,000 USD. The team is relatively new, having entered the local pro scene in April 2023. 

"Hopefully, this collaboration will make us soar higher, like the stars on our chest, and help us become the largest esports community team in Indonesia, partnering with Gaimin Gladiators," as tweeted on June 12.

HomeGirls, the MLBB women division of Malaysian esports organization HomeBois, is the strongest team in the region, remaining undefeated with a 9-0 score during the Malaysia & Singapore qualifications. The EWC 2024 tournament for MLBB Women, named the MLBB Women's Invitational 2024, boasts a total prize pool of $500,000 USD.

Gaimin Gladiators' EWC 2024 Participation

At the time of writing, Gaimin Gladiators have secured their participation in four game titles for EWC 2024: Dota 2, Apex Legends, Free Fire, and MLBB Women. These titles feature a combined total prize pool of $8,500,000 USD.

The organization may still qualify for additional titles, including Tekken 8, Fortnite, Overwatch 2, and others.
