Win One for the Core: Charlotte Gaming Team Takes Opener

Editor's note: John Gaudiosi writes the "Gaming Guru" blog for

CARY, N.C. - Carolina has another professional team in its borders. Add the Carolina Core to the Hurricanes, Panthers and Bobcats.

The professional videogame team, part of DirecTV's new Championship Gaming Series, is competing in its first tournaments out at Electronic Arts' Los Angeles studio. DirecTV has partnered with Microsoft, Mountain Dew, Fox and Best Buy to create the first pro gaming league with a full season and $5 million in salaries for the six teams.

Each team represents a city. Charlotte made the cut and the Carolina Core were born.
