What is the Level Academy AFK Series?

Level Academy are at the forefront of esports locally, and one of their most recent projects is the AFK series. The project is basically made up of short 10-minute episodes which feature key figures in the local esports scene.

Ivan Filletti – Episode 1

In the pilot episode, Level Academy brought on Ivan Filletti, COO of the Gaming Malta Foundation. Here Ivan explains what Gaming Malta does for esports locally and talks about the island’s potential as a hub for esports in Europe.

We’re an Island which is extremely well connected with all the other European jurisdictions.

Adding on to the fact that the historical background that Malta has, it very appealing for international organizations.

N-Gen – Episode 2

Edward “N-Gen15” Cachia was Level Academy’s guest for their second episode. If you’re not aware of who N-Gen is, he is a streamer, educator, as well as a broadcast producer. The main topic for this episode was live streaming and what it takes to make it full-time. Here he is emphasising that to make it into the big leagues when it comes to streaming, you will have to make certain sacrifices to dedicate the energy and the hours.

N-Gen goes on to say that working full-time as a streamer is not easy. It takes time, and it becomes harder over time, which might result in a burn-out at some point.

Forecast Panda – Episode 3

Episode 3, which is the latest episode at the time of writing, features a local streamer for Diabol, Michael “Forecast Panda” Vinnie Caruana. Panda is a competitive Tekken player, and is one of the top figures when it comes to streamers in Malta.

In the episode he describes that Level Academy has made a huge impact on himself. He states that Level Academy is a step forward for Esports in Malta. It is continuously evolving the whole scene, and pushing the competitive scene a step further. Panda also adds that the Academy has given him and many others loads of opportunities with regards to esports locally, and internationally.

This is certainly another great initiative from Level Academy, and we cannot wait to see the rest of the guest lineups, throughout the season!
