Official Statement Regarding @Locus_SSB Sponsorship Status
First of all, let me introduce myself. My name is Justin “Jamalrus” Simpao and I am currently a Vice President of the UBC eSports Association as well as the player manager/agent for Mason “Locus” Charlton.
Many of you may be wondering what the sponsorship status for Locus is and I am here to give some insight on the matter.
So as many of you have seen this past weekend (as well as previous tournaments), Locus was sporting the “UBCEA” tag. To briefly explain, UBCEA stands for the “UBC eSports Association”. You may know us as the collegiate club that has won the League of Legends collegiate tournaments for the past two years, as well as the people behind the upcoming Super Smash Bros tournament, Battle of BC 2. Our club puts on many events for gamers and competitors of all kinds (shameless plugs: facebook.com/ubcesports ; twitter.com/ubcesports) for games ranging from Super Smash Bros to games like Heroes of the Storm and everything in between.
Because of his recent success, some questions have risen in regards to the sponsorship status of Locus and without further ado, here it is: Locus is a free agent.
While being sponsored by the UBC eSports Association, we at UBCEA encourage player growth and advancement in the evolving esports community. With his recent success, we would like to encourage him to have the opportunity to get together with, and hopefully become partnered/sponsored with moving forward. Furthermore, at the end of the day, UBCEA is just a university club and there is only so much we can do. We know someone like Locus has a lot of potential and we would like him to explore his options as a top level player in Smash 4.
With that being said, Locus will hopefully continue to represent not only UBCEA, but British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest region at an elite level. It has been an honour to see his growth from the very beginning, and I can guarantee even better results to come from him.
