We’ve been recruiting from some of the top players in the nation, around the world. We are able to successfully recruit 5 to 6 of the best League of Legends players that we could find that were also really good students. We’re creating a brand new program So with it comes a ton of opportunity. You are all going to have a huge influence on this, right? You can all tell us what we need to be doing. How we need to be doing it. But there’s also going to be some struggles for doing it for the first time. We’re not going to know exactly the right way to do everything. Besides the fact that it’s a really prestigious school to be able to attend in the first place, I’ve been looking for an avenue to further my life after committing so much time into just playing progressive slots competitively. And trying to make it an experience for myself to really expand my horizons in my life.
This is the next way that I can move that experience forward. In terms of like education or job. It’s been a long road to get to the point where we’re actually getting things delivered to the arena. It was a pretty cool experience to unbox those first PCs. Here we go. Those computers are going to be a huge factor in drawing people to our arena and so it was pretty special. Oh my god, is this real? When the computers first came here, you know, it was kind of just like a hallmark of this is actually this is happening, you know. Everything up to that point, we still didn’t have a physical representation of what our program was and what it was going to be. It kind of represented basically that this program was officially, physically tangible. So excited right now. Phew! For the grand opening, we’re not exactly sure what to expect right now. But I definitely think we’ll have an extremely crowded terrace.
Honestly, I don’t even know what to say, man. This is a lot of people. Whoo! We are thrilled to open our new facility to this gaming community and be a leader in collegiate eSports So thank you all for being here. We hope you have an amazing night. [ cheering ] 1! 2! 3! Zot! Zot! Zot! And eSports is open! We actually played a game of an ARAM on our wedding day. And so this is our 1-year wedding anniversary. That was one of the most exciting games I’ve played against her in League of Legends. Except for the one right now when I beat her. That was far more exciting. He did not beat me. He sort of beat me. Our goal is to unite the gaming community in Southern California. And to be the best place for high-level play in video games. I think in 5 or 10 years, this will mirror what a traditional athletic program at a university looks like. There is no ceiling to how big and successful this program can be.
