ABOUT

PENTANET.GG

Esports offers Western Australia the opportunity to diversify our state’s economy with the development of a new industry, in turn creating new opportunities for employment, study, tourism and beyond. As WA’s premier esports organisation, Pentanet.GG looks forward to being part of the digitisation of Australia, starting with our home state.

The Pentanet.GG organisation is the esports arm of WA’s favourite local telco, Pentanet (ASX:5GG). Perth’s own private high-speed telecommunications network has been designed to enable better gaming conditions with quick connectivity between Australia with Asia. PGG is testament to Pentanet’s dedication to gaming and esports, building a growing audience of gamers within our WA ecosphere.

At PGG, we believe that there’s a game for everyone, no matter what age, skill level, or interest. The three pillars of Pentanet.GG are:

  • DEVELOPMENT | Forge your career as an esports athlete with career guidance from industry professionals.
  • COMMUNITY | Find your squad with our community of gaming and esports fans. Viewers, players, casters, streamers – everyone is invited!
  • PRO LEAGUE | Become a professional and compete at the highest levels of esports for prizes and prestige, with competitions running nationally and internationally, all year.

 

Pentanet.GG aims to expand our competitive teams across multiple titles with all players recruited, training and living in Western Australia.

OUR PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Pentanet.GG burst into the Australian esports scene in 2020. Our first venture in professional competition saw us acquire a spot in Australia and New Zealand’s League of Legends pro-league, Oceanic Pro League (OPL). The move saw PGG become WA’s first and only OPL team. Our inaugural season saw our highly competitive team reach the OPL Playoffs – a proud achievement for such a new team in a brand-new organisation!

In late-2020, Riot Games shocked the region with the dissolution of the OPL. Our mission to grow WA’s esports scene here in WA remained strong, and we knew the phoenix would rise from the ashes of the OPL.

In 2021, the League of Legends Circuit Oceania (LCO) was announced to replace the OPL. Designed in collaboration with the eight teams that were involved with the OPL’s final season, we joined our comrades along with our top management and leadership team, Pentanet.GG are here to shake up the Esports scene in Perth, WA and Australia.

PGG.RISE ACADEMY TEAM

Focussing on upcoming WA League of Legends talent, our PGG.RISE Academy team completed their first series in Split 2 of 2020, placing fourth in the Oceanic Challenger Series. We look forward to furthering our development player careers when the opportunity arises again in the Oceanic region.

GEFORCE NOW POWERED BY PENTANET

Gamers unite – your time is NOW! Thanks to Pentanet, Australian gamers will soon have access to GeForce NOW, NVIDIA’s premiere cloud-based game streaming service.

GeForce NOW instantly transforms nearly any laptop, desktop, Mac, Android or iOS mobile device into a high-end gaming PC using cloud technology. It allows users to instantly play the most demanding PC games across devices without the need for expensive hardware systems.

Our cloud gaming strategy is evidence of our commitment to the digitisation of Australia, starting with Perth. This mission is to bring global-leading technology to the Australian gaming population – borne through our founder Stephen Cornish’s own frustration with Australian ISP performance for gaming.
