To earn points, invited participants will duke it out across six rounds. The twist will be limited communication, with only the captains getting to speak. Meanwhile, other players will depend on in-game pings and their captain's leadership abilities.

“Women are actively shaping the future of gaming,” ClaraAtWork, who is also a Complexity Twitch streamer, said.

“Despite continued growth and progress over the past decade, gaming and esports remain predominantly comprised of men, so we’re co-hosting Clara’s Legends to spotlight women creators who are actively changing the game,” Kyle Bautista, the COO of Complexity Gaming, said.
Bautista added that Complexity Gaming is dedicated to doing its part in making the gaming space more welcoming to the current and future generation.
