OpTic Gaming : The Making of eSports Champions
OpTic Gaming has released their highly anticipated book today, OpTic Gaming: The Making of eSports Champions. The book is co-authored by seven OpTic members of the past and present, including the likes of Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez, Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, and Ryan “Fwiz” Wyatt, with all of them offering a perspective on their unique experiences and strategies in trying to make a career out of playing video games.
Starting in 2006 as a Call of Duty sniping team, OpTic has transformed over the last decade into an international powerhouse in esports, and gaming in general, expanding to Counter-Strike and Halo with top-level teams, becoming one of the best teams in Call of Duty history, and breaking ground in their internet fame through social media. They have garnered over 16 million followers on the web, thanks in part to the “Green Wall”, the cult-like following of fans that are known as some of the loudest and most active supporters in all of esports. Additionally, OpTic has also been able to introduce sponsors such as Brisk (a Pepsi brand) and Turtle Wax into esports, as well as win notable tournaments such as Call of Duty XP in 2011 and the first X GAMES event with esports involvement, in 2014.
The group will be doing a three-date book tour, starting tonight with a stop in Fort Lee, NJ, followed by an event in Skokie, IL on Thursday, and wrapping it up in Los Angeles on Friday.
