Curse, Inc. is taking eSports very seriously. The company is making a massive investment in live streaming its pro gaming teams 24/7 through new Curse Gaming Houses in California and Berlin. Team Curse will be moving into a luxurious 8,000 square foot Beverly Hills mansion in California on August 1 and fans will be able to tune in to see what life is like for a League of Legends pro gamer beginning August 10. Backed by own3D.tv, Logitech and TeamSpeak, Curse expects the traffic from these livestreams to attract over a half million viewers per day.
Brandon ‘Saintvicious’ DiMarco, who plays the role of the jungler for Team Curse, is already getting acclimated to having cameras follow his every move. He’s currently living with the rest of his team in a multimillion dollar San Francisco penthouse. DiMarco will take part in what Curse hopes will be a new twist on livestreaming, offering an MTV “Real World” feel with quality production values and a dedicated professional video crew to capture the lives of these pro gamers up close and personal throughout Riot Games’ League of Legends Challenger Circuit season.
