ZOTAC starts a good cause with the ZOTAC CUP and donates the US$100,000 prize pool to charity with the ZOTAC CUP Fight for Charity LOL Tournament held at COMPUTEX Taipei this year. A truly generous gesture indeed, inspiring professional Esports players and gamers around the world to unite for a great cause.

The ZOTAC CUP Fight for Charity online qualifiers through Asia, Europe, and Americas kicked off in April of this year, where best nine League of Legends players on the online platform made their way to the semis on May 28th and 29th. They were met by popular local influencers MMD, Eggroll, 7Z, WeiWei, Toyz and Gear to compete for 5 coveted spots in the Grand Finals, where the top international streamers await. 

The 10 finalists will then compete to raise funds to help support the Esports Foundation US, Gaming-Aid, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Mercy Malaysia, and Oaktree Foundation.

For the Esports Foundation US, Voyboy and Kammr raised US$18,500
For Gaming Aid, CooLifeGame and DEX raised US$17,000
For Make-a-Wish Foundation, Guan Zong and Lukalux raised US$22,000
For Mercy Malaysia, Hao Kai and Cipher raised US$19,500
For the Oaktree Foundation, KayPea and MMD raised US$23,000

The ZOTAC CUP was also streamed live in various languages on Twitch, Huya, and official Microsite. Popular casters Riku, Fish, and Spawn also took the stage to provide commentary on all the action at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center as well as audiences around the world. 

“As an industry leader, we are excited to take the lead in encouraging the gaming community to create positive impacts. This year is very special because we have many talented individuals allocating their time, only with the aim to help make a difference. We also thank our partners NVIDIA, JUYA, Intel, Logitech Gaming, ViewSonic, COUGAR, and Battlefy for providing their support,” said Tony Wong, CEO of ZOTAC Technology.

Chinny Chuang, ZOTAC Global Director of Marketing added, “Our charity partners have also set up their own donation page to accept international donations, enabling our global audience the ability to directly make contributions to support their favorite LOL streamer and charities.”

Powering up the systems of the players is the all-new 9th generation MEK MINI from ZOTAC GAMING – an ultra compact desktop gaming PC equipped with  ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2070 GPU and an 9th generation Intel Core i5  CPU. The compact gaming desktops are also tethered to the ZBOX Streaming Mini PC pre-installed with Streamlabs OBS and an Avermedia M.2 video capture card for players to simultaneously livestream during the tournament.

It’s definitely great to see ZOTAC’s push in setting the stage for the very first tournament for charity at COMPUTEX, and we’re hopeful it will start off a chain reaction for the years ahead!
