If I had not been covering the event, I would have liked to drink beer to raise my vibes and watch the competition, but I had to hold back for the sake of taking pictures.

The "AFTER6 LEAGUE" is about to start. The commentary is by Nanai!
Before that, however, Yuka Kuramochi, the MC, declares not the opening of the event, but the opening exhibition match!

The opponents were recruited on the spot, and those who were well played who stood for the match!

Now it's time to get down to business. The entrants for this year's "AFTER6 LEAGUE" are all members of society.
Nash Tajima, a newly graduated engineer with only half a year of working experience, was quite nervous.

It is strange to see a fangler among the renowned companies....

And April Knights Maru know editor-in-chief bukkey vs. Fangler Nash Tajima!
April Knights has a lot of similarities with Fangler's business, so we can't lose at our own will!
Nash Tajima smoothly greets the audience by exchanging business cards, which he learned in business manner training after joining the company, and MARU KNOWLEDGE Editor-in-Chief bukkey, who participated in a cosplay of Colin!
As you can tell from his outfit and name...

Bukkey, the editor-in-chief of Maru-Shiranai, dressed up as "Colin," of course, uses Colin!
Nash Tajima, as his name implies... "Abigail"?

With the host and the play-by-play commentary baffled, the game was on!

The winner was Fangler Nash Tajima! He beat Maru-knowing editor-in-chief bukkey, who was taking countermeasures against Nash, with his Abigail!

The battle had already begun, as he had been distracting his opponent with his entry name on the match-up list since the day before...!

Round 1, Game 3: iid vs. CyberE

DeNA's SOOGZ is a little nervous because he is playing against Wellplayed Singh.
Wellplayed Shin is also under pressure not to lose as a company specializing in e-sports, and you could sense the tension between the two players.

The result was a convincing victory for Wellplayed Shin!

Semifinal 1: Marubeni vs. Fangler

And now, the semi-finals! Marubeni vs. Fangler! Personally, I have a lot of fond memories of Marubeni Group's Alteria Networks, as I used their lines in my data center for a while...!

The customary exchange of business cards. I think I'm getting a little more stooped than I should be....
I wonder if a new graduate engineer from a small venture company without major capital in front of an elite engineer from a major general trading company listed on the first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange would already lose the battle....

But Fangler won brilliantly! Nash Tajima's great accomplishment in his first six months with the company! It was a great decision to hire him, as being an infrastructure engineer wasn't enough for him, and he is now active in e-sports as well!
The author interviewed Nash Tajima and hired him because of his love for games.

Semifinal 2: iid vs. Wellplayed!

The second semi-final was between IID Inc., a game media company, and Wellplayed, an e-sports player management and event planning and management company!
You definitely have a relationship...

The result was, of course, a victory for Wellplayed! Well Plaid is too strong...

And now the final! Fangler vs. Well Plaid!

Finally, the final! I didn't expect Fangler to make it to the finals...

You may have noticed that he was not as nervous as he had been at first, and was speaking with an air of confidence.

Through eSPORTS, he has grown as a member of society in a short period of time.

Thus ended the memorable 1st eSPORTS TRINITY, AFTER6 LEAGUE.

Impressions & Epilogue

After the event, we exchanged greetings and business cards with the participating companies.
I was not able to meet all of them, but I was able to have a meeting with April Knights, DeNA, G-STAR.Gaming, and others later on.

Unlike so-called cross-industrial social gatherings, it was a novel and new experience for me to have a common topic of conversation through games, and to have a job opportunity through games.

Also, in business-to-business sales, it is difficult to make appointments, especially for someone like Nash Tajima, who is an engineer and a new graduate, but if he wins the game, his job & business partners will expand, isn't this business innovation through eSPORTS?
