Here's The Thing
September 13, 2019

Here’s The Thing officially launched today, serving as the new Australasian hub for esports industry news, and kicking off in action with a thoroughly experienced leadership, editing, and reporting team.

Here’s The Thing is working actively with a range of esports stakeholders to bring insight into the minds of esports consumers throughout the region, and use its diverse team to cover the stories that need telling.

“This project is the culmination of months of work after the recognition that there is a lack of hard-hitting, straight-shooting reporting in Oceania.” said CEO Benjamin Scott. “Our platform will serve as a stable voice that sheds light on the progress behind closed doors in the business of esports. I'm hopeful that we will deliver on what we are aiming to achieve and I hope the community can get behind this new wave of esports news culture in this region.”

The team at HTT have assembled a crew of young and budding contributors, with a deep-rooted passion to share the untold stories, and a trio of editors that have experience spanning all walks of the written content to ensure only the highest calibre of journalism is associated with the HTT brand. In addition to our writing team, we’ve collaborated with some of Australasia’s top talent to create up-to-date, in-depth team power rankings across the region’s most watched titles.

2019 is proving to be the strongest year yet in Australasian esports, with team mergers, non-endemic apparel deals, and viewership growing, all of us at HTT are excited to bring a new level of insight to the region’s coverage.
