About G-Loot
G-Loot was founded in 2015 in Stockholm, Sweden, by gaming enthusiasts who sought to democratize the competitive esports scene. As well as the G-Loot PC app, the company also runs GLL, which organizes online and offline tournaments with partners such as EA, Garena, Tencent, Lenovo, and PUBG Corporation.

How G-Loot works

G-Loot lets users compete in esports challenges in the games they already own. During gameplay, the G-Loot PC app runs in the background. It monitors game stats such as kills, wins, losses, and details such as accuracy and which weapon is used. When a player enters a G-Loot challenge, it is this data that determines the rankings and winners. G-Loot users never have to compete directly with each other, so everyone receives an equal playing field no matter the difference in skill levels. Players can choose to compete against others (either 1v1 or in an open micro-tournament) or test their own skills in solo challenges. G-loot charges an entry fee for each monetized challenge and takes a percentage of the prize money.
