Twitch star Zack "Asmongold" hosted a special, two-hour-long stream on June 7 and made a bunch of exciting and new announcements.

One of the biggest reveals made by the popular streamer organization was of them partnering up with WePlay Esports as a strategic investor and partner. WePlay Esports will help the two-year-old streamer organization host and produce high-value production events.

We are extremely excited to welcome @WePlay_Esports as a strategic investor and partner to expand live event and media capabilities. The stuff we have planned together will blow your mind. https://t.co/s2soo0at0F

Fans have often criticized the production value of various events hosted by the group and have often labeled OTK events as being "scuffed." With a new partnership, fans can expect the production to be leveled up to a new height.

@TipsOut @OTKnetwork @Asmongold @WePlay_Esports My favorite thing about OTK is you guys really try to stand out and do things that helps your friends and the industry as a whole grow. Only a matter of time til others see this and try to make things like this of their own, and that's what trendsetters do.

@OTKnetwork @Asmongold @WePlay_Esports I'm giving it 4 months before we get OTK Game Awards.
@Necrit94 @OTKnetwork @Asmongold @WePlay_Esports Would definitely be better than the god awful "Streamer Awards".
