Going AFK with Michele Magro – Who is he?
Michele “Mikk” Magro isn’t a familiar face to many that have just joined the local esports scene. However, people that have been in the Maltese gaming community know that Michele was the one that founded Project Eversio back in 2007, and still manages it to this day! He first kicked off his competitive experience with COD 1, participating in local tournaments and eventually moved on to other COD titles. Nowadays he tries to take part in some local competitions when he has the time, but he’s mainly focusing on growing Project Eversio.
What is Project Eversio?
Michele then describes how it was like to create an organization such as Project Eversio. Nowadays, Project Eversio is involved with several esports titles, most notably, CS:GO, Rocket League, FIFA, Fortnite, and many others. Here, he mentions that he wouldn’t call his organization a professional team; however if you’re an avid reader of our articles, you know that the organization is quite common on our website. This is because they’re the ones that are always winning local tournaments and competing internationally.
Sports vs Esports
I don’t like comparing sports and esports, they’re both competitive activities, but what we’re seeing now is the commercialization of esports. Esports is just like any other entertainment industry, you just need an audience, people to broadcast to, and sell advertising.

Michele further explains that on the competition side of esports, things are being more organised and professional. Examples of such are the franchised leagues we’re seeing, and the structure and regulations involved.
Project Eversio have done a lot to shape up Maltese esports into what it is today. They have always been the team to beat, and still are at the top of their game in a variety of esports. Eversio have had a great start to the year, and we cannot wait to see what they’ll do next!
