A Month in Review: April 2019

It’s a focus on expansion for domination, as UYU grew further in multiple genres. We revealed the roster of our professional Apex players, and introduced more top talent into their Stream and COD squads. On the side of the fighting game teams, multiple players nabbed big points in the tournaments circuits of their respective titles. Take a tour of April’s highlights below.
