Grace College’s brand-new esports team has announced two major enhancements to the program.
The team has entered into a sponsorship with MSI, who is a leading developer of computer hardware for the esports industry. Grace’s student-athletes will wear custom MSI jerseys and play on powerful MSI gaming computers.
Along with that partnership, Grace will move its facility on campus to the Gordon Health and Wellness Center. The new esports facility will be equipped with 11 gaming computers with RTX 2060 Super graphics cards and the brand-new Intel i7 10700F processors (released April 30).
The gaming stations will include a keyboard, mouse, mousepad, gaming chair and headsets. A large TV screen will also be incorporated to review gameplay and discuss strategies among the team.
“We are incredibly blessed and excited to partner with MSI. This sponsorship will be pivotal to help grow our program and establish Grace Esports,” said Grace head coach Andrew Palladino. “Starting our program with an amazing facility on campus will make a huge difference. Players will have convenient access to 10 top-of-the-line systems and a game review room to work on effective communication and learning the important aspects of teamwork. I would like to thank Dr. Bill Katip, Chad Briscoe, Marcus Moore, Jacob Barros and Bradley Christenberry from Grace College as well as Robert Chen and Jae Chung from MSI for making this possible.” – from gclancers.com
