Virgin Gaming has added a new subscription plan to their eSports gaming league, which allows players to compete in online tournaments for a small fee. By going with the new subscription plan, which comes with a $5 monthly fee, gamers can avoid paying for each individual match, allowing them to save money if they plan often enough.
"[The subscription] takes away the small pain of giving up a share of the proceeds every time a players plays a match," explained Virgin Gaming executive vice president Wim Stocks. "That fee was discouraging people from playing more tournaments. This made a lot of sense. We expect broad participation among all skill levels."
The subscription plan will also provide Virgin Gaming with a more consistant stream of revenue, allowing them to improve and expand the eSports service. Any interested gamers can take advantage of the one free month that Virgin Gaming offers to anyone who signs up for the subscription, which will only be charged for after your free month.
