Charlotte Esports

Fast Times at VR High

So we just got back from one of the largest conventions of our little blip of existence as a company, and it was pretty awesome. Drove over to the Maxwell Center in Goldsboro, NC with the MRU crew. We made some great contacts and met some fun people! The opportunity came out of left field about half way through January when the man, some may say the legend, behind the Charlotte Esports League, Josh Richardson, reached out to us about filling a need for the creators of the Carolina Games Summit. Needless to say we were stoked and super grateful to both organizations. We had two 10 x 10 booths and a large room to pull off some sweet VR escape room action. Being in a giant convention center with that many other gamers, geeks and nerds was glorious; don’t get me wrong, I love anime and pop culture conventions too, but gaming is where my heart is.


We even managed to upgrade our VR rigs in time for the big day! The new rigs (pictured in our Rock Hill greenscreen room) now allow us to run completely wireless with no noticeable lag and a nice boost to graphical quality. Beat Saber really comes alive with 2x Super Sampling.

For the tech nerds out there we are now running:

  • i7-8700k

  • 16 GB DDR4 ram

  • Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Motherboards

  • 500 GB SSDs

  • RTX2070s


Lots of things being cooked up for the coming year; tournaments, conventions, eSport meets and more! Make sure to check out the upcoming Space Junkies tournament starting February 19th and check the XRVR facebook page for more information!
