Welcome to

Support Gaming Team Kamu-e


We started Support Gaming Team Kamu-e as a way to support e-sports teams and events in Japan. Started in 2015, Support Gaming Team Kamu-e's main focus is on creating entertaining e-sports events and tournaments, and supporting other event producers by providing graphic and web design for events, working as extra staff, and helping to plan, organize, and run e-sports events across Japan.

While our main focus is on the Japanese DOTA 2 community, we do play work with other games and genres as well. One of our longest running events is the MOBA-HUB offline gathering. We aim to bring gamers of any game together in a place that is open for meeting new friends, learning about different games, and being to enjoy e-sports together.

Kamu-e does sport a traditional e-sports team as well for DOTA 2 tournaments. As of right now, we are not actively recruiting new members for either group, though we do occasionally look for help for specific events. If you are interested in learning more about Kamu-e and our events, be sure to join our Discord channel for the latest news!
