All of this is made possible through the co-creation with our incredible partners for the quarter. These included Activision, Nvidia, WIzzo (MBC Group), Acer and Jumbo Electronics.
Call of Duty: Wizzo (MBC Group) Activation
Wizzo, the biggest social media platform for gamers in the Middle East, partnered with EGA on an event that had players and creators working together to create a buzz.
The first 2 weeks of Ramadan saw over 75,000 Saudi Riyals in giveaways, with a Dodge charger awarded towards the end of the holy month to top it all off. These were implemented through social media campaigns and custom live streams, all planned and executed by The Esports & Gaming Agency Middle East.

Can you imagine a Twitter feud between YouTubers, that turns into an actual challenge there and then?
Season 3 featured some major Middle East influcners, including FFearFFul, Drb7h, Basharkk, zCleVer2, and LeoNoHero.
The five participating content creators kicked off the campaign through a Twitter feud, challenging each other to Call of Duty supremacy. Call of Duty Arabia’s Twitter account jumped in at the end of the exchange to make it official and kick off the event – asking the players to put their actions where their words are!
Every 2 players were put together, with FFearFFul playing in week 1 and Drb7h taking his place in week 2. Each kill and win added points to each team’s score respectively to crown a winning team at the end of the second week.
