Manila, Philippines February 8, 2019 — In just under two years of operation, Tier One Entertainment has exploded onto the Philippine esports and gaming scene.
First, we assembled a lineup of professional shoutcasters as we brought quality broadcasts to your screens. Then, we conquered the realm of streaming, amassing the largest collective of livestream talent the Philippines had ever seen under the AMPLFY banner. As of this writing, the success of Tier One and AMPLFY is extending all over Southeast Asia.
However, we are still classified as an esports and gaming company. We cannot forget the reason that esports became so big in the first place. It became a phenomenon on the back of captivating play between top-level gaming athletes. We would be remiss not to include any pro players under our brand.
“With the success of the AMPLFY program, we want to be able to give back to the community by supporting esports players who have the potential to become world champions. We’re proud to announce the forming of Tier One Entertainment’s professional esports squad, Team AMPLFY.”
– TRYKE GUTIERREZ C.E.O. TIER ONE ENTERTAINMENT
We wanted to set the foundation of team AMPLFY in diversity and opportunities, while still maintaining the culture of excellence and winning. After settling on three esports titles for three different platforms—Dota 2 for PC, Rules of Survival for mobile, and Tekken for console—we brought on players we felt were deserving of the spot and had the potential to exceed expectations. For Dota 2, we have been working with Admiral for the past months and have agreed with their owners Peng Mendoza and Martin Gonzales to rebrand the team as AMPLFY—DOTA 2.
For Team AMPLFY-Rules of Survival and Team AMPLFY-Tekken, we are still scouting the fields for the best of the best and those who are fit for the Tier One name.
We want to have a solid foothold in the new trinity of esports platforms. PC and console gaming have been popular for years, but we cannot neglect the meteoric rise of mobile gaming in the industry. We want to revolutionize what it means to be a professional esports player in this country (and eventually across the region) the same way we did for shoutcasters and streamers.
This is only the beginning. We want Team AMPLFY to span more titles, and be able to train more talents to become the star players of tomorrow. The path will be tough, and our players will inevitably struggle along the way, but as with all things our company does, we will train them to see the value in the process.

We ask for your support as Tier One starts this new venture. For Team AMPLFY’s players, and its future members, the road to becoming Truly Top Tier begins.
