Manila, Philippines March 29, 2018 — Since the beginning of Tier One Entertainment, we’ve wanted to provide more career opportunities for those who want to get into the esports industry.

But even if we want to accommodate as many people as we can, we know this line of work is not for everyone. The level of grind and hard work one has to endure to sustain a career in esports and gaming is no laughing matter.

That’s why we showcase core values that would separate our talents and our team from the rest and Be Truly Top Tier.

That one statement is the sum of these values:

Be the answer.
Grit and excellence can truly change the game.
A brilliant mind can always find a way to the top.
In Tier One, we never settle.

To the numerous people who have asked us how to be a part of Tier One, we’re giving you a one of a kind opportunity. We want to find those among you that share these values with us. We want to channel that hunger and interest, into a learning experience you can take with you.

We want to teach like-minded individuals the ins and outs—exactly what it takes to be in the esports industry.

That’s why, for the first time ever, we are opening our doors to the community. To those that want to take the risk and better themselves through actual training.

Imagine a space where you can experience what real esports work is.

Somewhere you can be mentored by veteran casters, graphic artists, business strategists, and more.

Somewhere to learn and hone real life skills you need to be ready for a career in gaming and esports.

That place is One Academy.

One Academy is Tier One’s internship program, aimed at raising the competence of future esports practitioners and professionals in the country.

Through One Academy, we hope to pay it forward to the dedicated gaming community. By sharing the knowledge we’ve earned in our combined decades worth of experience in the industry, we want to empower the next generation to take industry to new heights.

One Academy isn’t just for the brilliant student who has a passion for gaming but doesn’t know where to start. One Academy is also for the young professional who desperately wants to make a career shift.

It’s for those select few who really want to make something out of their love for video games. The few who want to know just how much grind goes into this industry.

And while we advocate holistic development that will prepare you to take on future career opportunities in the esports and gaming landscape, you still need to focus and hone certain skills.

That is why for 200 hours, or 2 months, the chosen few will have to choose from one among these three schools.

The School of Aesthetics

Here, the skills of promising young Videographers, Video Editors, Photographers, Graphic Artists, as well as other Multimedia Arts majors will be honed. Those that have an eye for detail and a creative mind, who are looking for new ways to bring esports content to fans everywhere will be right at home here.

The School of Production

This school features carefully curated expert-level classes geared towards Writers, Observers, Sound Specialists, Researchers, and Associate Producers in the making. When it comes to hands-on experience and the nitty gritty of conceptualizing, setting up, and broadcasting esports shows, this is the only learning experience you’ll need.

School of Talents

For the hopeful streamers, shoutcasters, and aspiring pro players who are willing to showcase talent with equal parts grind and dedication. Learn from established esports veterans and gaming celebrities as they guide you with their wealth of experience and give you the tools to begin your own path towards becoming an influencer.

If you think you have what it takes, then sign up for Tier One Academy. We’ll be posting the application process soon, so stay sharp and be ready.

Good luck to you all. And to those that will be chosen— your gaming career starts here.
