Kinguin partners with esport legend - Maikelele for a new community-driven project

Kinguin is excited to announce its partnership with CS:GO pro Maikel “Maikelele” Bill and his new community website-based platform Plearn, where gamers can join events and compete in a variety of challenges to win prizes. Maikelele and Kinguin have a long-standing friendship, stemming from the days Maikelele played under the Team Kinguin banner, winning Gaming Paradise 2015 and placing in the top 8 at the ESL One Cologne 2015 Major.

Now Kinguin and Maikelele are joining forces in a community-driven partnership for Maikelele’s platform, Plearn, where Kinguin will be providing prizes for challenge winners and participants. Kinguin is a long-time supporter of the CS:GO scene and this partnership is a natural next step for the company to strengthen its bond with the community.

Plearn will host weekly Kinguin-branded challenges where top winners will be granted Kinguin gift cards, while a number of participants will receive exclusive Kinguin discount codes. Furthermore, CS:GO related products available at will be promoted on and affiliated sites in the form of affiliate links.

The first Kinguin-branded event will begin this Thursday, March 25 with Maikelele himself live streaming the challenges together with some Plearn members. The live stream will begin at 18:00 CET over at

Maikel “Maikelele” Bill, Plearn Founder said, “I am thrilled to be partnering with Kinguin, a company I share fond memories of, going back to my professional CS:GO career. Without the support of the community, I wouldn’t be where I am today - this is my way of giving back. Plearn is a passion project aimed at motivating players to bring their game to a whole new level while also having the chance to win great prizes. Given my history with Kinguin, and their continuous involvement and support of the CS:GO scene, they are the perfect partner for Plearn.”

Viktor Romaniuk Wanli, Kinguin Founder and CEO said, “We are beyond excited to be partnering with a great platform led by such a great player and friend. CS:GO is a much loved game and we have always cherished its community so it is important to Kinguin to play a part in bringing this project to life. We are looking forward to helping grow a platform that puts fun and players first.”

Currently focused on CS:GO, Plearn plans to expand into more PC and console games in the future, making it possible for players of all kinds to play and earn with Plearn.
