"So. Yeah. We think probably give death judgy Soetrisno as the only. Really. Major Creative Judgy for people unfamiliar used to be Samsung Galaxy went through to rebrand which sort of. God's people a little confused because they became chaos vs sports for like eight months. At then they became Jaji but that has a history they claim though Samsung Galaxy Championships. Did they. Did Not know that that. That clears up a lot of confusion that I had. Oh interesting. I didn't you like why are they may be championships? Yeah and I knew that Samsung had like rebranded a few times but I didn't know they ended up. So, now do. Yuck. Blue Samsung White where the we're fakers rivals during that Korea dominance in the in the middle part of this past decade and winning two championships. Yeah. Then they became case V very briefly in two thousand eighteen and then rebranded again as John in the double rebrand lost water people as they're trying to figure out. But yeah, that's gingy.

I don't want to count up and I think because of really high chance of making it through and I think even if Tsm performs could make it through as well. I could see it feels like the group of death because there isn't a clear like last place L. D. barely squeaky and day should be the last place, but you can't really count them out. So if you'RE GONNA call one group that it's probably without one you should we move onto group to Group D Group D. Group.

"So we're GONNA be fine helping that be creating content with them helping their mission vitamins on scholarships, and our hope is that is Kinda Korean. It's really a spiderweb, a ripple effects across his university so far we have four Foundational Partners University of Kentucky Eastern Michigan University bumble explodes banks actually extended the amount you all were GONNA be receiving scholarships for this year. The applications are open or they're closing clothes on over fifteen forget announce the winners route six giving scholarships for me give it up for this year so. We're really said buy it on Amazon hopeless missions. This is like amazing to see how what's coming in and we think it just. Our commitment to East Orchard colleges or college education growth of this industry. Through diversity and we hope for students to be the leading the charge not US nine university officials. We want the actual people living at to the once ler hoping the change of where was. Supporting a give them the tools resources any. I love that it's been student led for so Long College Games as gaming clubs that didn't have anything more than occasional meeting room and administration. It's finally getting on board giving it to the students at that focused on diversity and inclusion is so important I just today's on the. Quick, take each week published a long interview, which is what this the, but we also published Daily News hits and that includes one each week where I look at research study and what I covered today recording this on Wednesday as won't hear it until. Friday, but the what I covered with colleges for his quick day was a paper published by. A professor at North Carolina State and talk with a bunch of college eastward sears. Sports haven't brought in as many women as they had hypothesized about three years ago which. I just hope that the eastwards at the top level is very male dominated will college sports by be a great way to bring more women into the fold in that and they found that just hasn't totally been the case that hasn't played out at. So I think initiatives like this are really important because he needs to be a concrete effort to make it easier for women detriment space to make it easier for low income people to enter the space. Because right now it just hasn't totally proven to be that at so having organizations like Jen. Gee backing that having all female fortnight teams like the one sponsored by bumble and how creases that reputation and then you see. Young. Girls like Mochi in she gingy. Yes. She's gingy.

With what it's like in terms of how much time they spend Yadda Yadda. All those like technical bullet points and the climate ripped it up until he was trash and they said, we're not entering the.

"In people's homes when their friends over, you know it's like the that's how people adaptive a fun casual even like now, the fog is an example, the disraeli example. Which I put a wife like. It's gross. Game. To play. With my girlfriend at. Each each other's throats. Great. We laugh about. Too serious. But you know it's fun like I think that stuff is so cool. That you could that you can do with someone in. Good communication skill. So maybe Well we'll have three stars at love her to death, but she what's Borscht like more we're going to give We did it. We beat the goal it. It's. Got A maximize potential out but every single dive A. She's not in other thing she said to announce gate. For schools is. I think a lot of schools think like okay. We need a whole new eastward strategy and we need to do Xyz in higher all these people in we try to tell schools you really WanNa. Build from your strengths and you WanNa, do something that is already a reflection of your university. So for example. The Penn relays was an event that university Pennsylvania's hundred, twenty six years happens on it Franken field, which is their football stadium on campus like high school runners in college runners live dance every year. So we're GONNA do like an east sports event I. Dare Because GonNa Tracking you run your mile on. Another deal for few hours. So he figured set in east. But then when I got cancelled movie did was is we created in Japan re actually rebuilt the football stadium within my crafts and created these relay races where people could actually take Democrat characters sign up with friends and compete in different heat. So just like a track race high school boys has girls has mixed cowboys you know Cetera and you could compete against other high schools in other colleges in minecraft in a recreated Henry's environment that you took some liberties like there was snow and ice and fire like funding like that. They don't really have attract. But all of a sudden when did was is engaged hand digital extension to their track race, which was happened to be over century or in allowed people were planning on being in Philadelphia that we couldn't make out the to participate I. Have a global audience. It gives a new element promoter partners in sponsors, Wade media in the temple on franchise built from the university Now, that's something that we're hoping to be working with them after years and years to come because it's going to be part of the fabric of what that event is. So I. Think when universities who are maybe struggling to get his own tonight insurance worth their time if you think okay, going help us get US students. Existing students have a better experience not transfer. We can do it in a way where we could take our existing events in just kind of. Transport them in fun ways to the gaming community name really starts kind of seeing how pieces fit together why gaming should be important to law schools? Absolutely it also creates opportunities for people who might not feel a connection to their university that you've sort of alluded to this where you know maybe these people who play video games in their dorm room and giving them the opportunity to have a club that fits their interest and gets them out, gets them on campus at the center of campus gets them representing if they're playing for their clubs representing their schools colors. Creates a level of connection. There's been plenty of studies published that shows that feeling connected to your.

"Values the sports community number two. If you decide to go eastern, Michigan, you're hopefully to know other people and make friends who are also high school kids like yourself because you've been seen every Thursday through these events and number three got to get a feel for what the school is about because you already know people are smash flow. So if you. Think about it. especially with Kobe, you can't go for be able to go to actually visit campus. You may not be able to offer welcoming some cases class. So now what we've done is kind of create this virtual experience for when you show up the first day, you already know people you know people they played with high school annual people. Who are in college or copiers older than you have been involved program so I would say for a lot of people like remember welcoming orientation. circle people in your taller in your dorm room. It's super, awkward I WANNA use. Not that doubt. And for the schools, it's great. Welcome week was was incredibly awkward. I just remember that it'd be like this okay. I gotTa make my friends now right down and I was like begging friends. Fault. Isn't you're? Supposed to do dads. If you're in a foreign place, you've never been before you never let your parents most likely. Like you don't know anything is you don't know where to go and then like everyone's trying to make friends, you do it within two days. It feels like there's so much pressure net. That's why I think students. End Up retreating to their dorm room or transferring not having great experiences in college was it's too hard. It's too much. So if we can actually use gaming as a way for people to kind of make friends in be sold sean kind of feel valued if you like have a community campus, Dan we've done really good for the students for university in anything of gaming sports that light. You see that it's much more well rounded in Defer Competitive Gaming? Definitely I made my lives by secret weapon to making Frederick. Gamecube opened the door room throw the Super Smash Pros like.

"Got Fanatic. No cloud nine. But. You've got rogue gingy fly Cuesta sneaks in there and so I and damn one JD game ear both really big over in a career and China respectively. So I think there's a lot of the star power people are going to be looking for. Especially if we get some of those regional matchups that people love to see later in the tournament something like you know whenever it's a career vs Europe or China Verses L. Or. Anything like that always seems to drive just pretty insane viewership consistently. But anyways before we just talk about world for thirty minutes which I absolutely do. Let's talk about some of the awesome things jetties doing especially in the college world, we launched the colleges for Quick de all be publishing this episode on the Eastwards Network Veep, but also on that colleges for its feet because it's a space that we really want to dive a lot. More into as we met while, you were talking to my Alma Mater the University of Michigan Junkies a lot of work in colleges sense that partner with the University of Kentucky Partnering With Eastern Michigan University, what is Jen Gee doing with those partnerships? Can you dive in a little bit about what that partnership means in what gingy is bringing to a sports program like that? Shirt so the were looking at it is a lot of universities are building up their sports programs of that's really good. A lot of them are doing it really geared toward competitive teams and trying to figure out. Okay. How do we figure out a schedule Rick get the best players for university them on tournaments stage and we think that's interesting unique. Why? Our thought processes that League of legends like the World Championships is always going to be bigger than maybe like an NCAA championship and maybe that grows over time But when you see the structures Ernie place in the way. Are the audience is already kind of looking at this stuff. There's really a strikes you the best of the best in we're not a hundred percent sure of college football's going to be the same colleges for. So what our philosophy is is we help universities use gaming in east sports to recruit students to their school to retain them is part of school in into also encourage alumni to get reinvested in the school and so in doing that or basic concept is. You want to focus on casual gamers, gaming community and not just a small segment of the ultracompetitive. That might represent the university in tournament. So a lot of the activation. Is Okay. How can we actually do something that helps a highschool suit and understand what a college sports program is or how to become career opportunities, academic pathways on campus events or ritual events for current students to feel. I really liked the school that I'm at I feel part of a larger community there's a gaming place. For me where I could meet other Gamers, make friends but I don't necessarily have to make e sports my life goal I can continue doing whatever i WanNa do journalism entrepreneurship, medicine, history, law, etc.. So the way, for example, what we've done I think something's really interesting with Michigan University. They have a very large Super Smash Club just like every other university has and we talked to them in rallies WanNa. Get back to the school they WANNA be involved. So every other Thursday, which which broadcasts were eastern Michigan students can actually play with and against high school students from across the country and it's been really cool. We have over one hundred high schools that have signed up to participate. We have students from almost all fifty states participating and they're signing up in their they're playing alongside of high school kids and these college students in what we're showing them is number one eastern Michigan..

"You can almost feel like that's just too big of a mountain to climb in. You can get in your head. You can be a little bit mental about it. And I. Just think it was so cool that the players are able to accept the setbacks at they had instill get into worlds. And now that we're in kind of optimistic that like we're going to play with swag, we're going to be able to play like our game not tense up because were just really happy to be a part of it into get into it and for us I feel like our was getting to where else in the rest of this is kind of like house money in a sense. So I'm really optimistic to see the team's performance in what they can do. Nadda. We accomplish this goal in so much is already in our rear view. There's definitely something to be said for getting in just having no hurdles. Okay. We're here. Let's do whatever we can and you know not just necessarily happy to be there. But having you know like you said, it's house money. Everything's great. You guys are in the group stages. Fantastic. You get outta groups. That's amazing. So everything you do is like this is awesome at i. feel like you guys got a good shot in that in that group you know it's there's no bad deeds worlds, of course but you did avoid for what group without an LP lt which feels like probably.

"With a focus on inclusion diversity in academic excellence, they had the Gen ten ten scholarship recipients backed by gingy with that focus in mind. For Jordan personally he spent a lot of time in the traditional sportsworld with years at the MLB and two at the Los. Angeles Clippers before moving to gingy in two thousand eighteen on the show to be talking about junkies initiatives the goals of the organization how the team is built such a strong list of brand partners and wouldn't eastwards organization brings to a college program. So Jordan, let me know did I Miss Anything That was really excellent. I know you had prepared. So that's great. I've been familiar. I think I've covered a lot of that over the years I wrote about the bubble at Fort I interviewed you about the Puma? Partnership. I was at the twitch guy when Tina raise once I've picked up all this over the over time for Sherp yet and we And we met at Oregon of course. Yay. Alma Mater, which is just a quick way to. Get into my good graces and you and you visited receive. Oregon. You talked to those orchid students that was a really fun time and that's what we I actually got. Meet you in person which was really awesome. that panel was that I was you evil geniuses and team liquid that totally high-powered at the University of Oregon and made me so jealous because when I was a kid I, was there three years ago there was no chance anything like that would have ever existed. So I'm glad my my old school is finally getting with the times and bringing students some awesome resources like that. Yeah and I remember you asked I don't remember what you asked the U s a very high level in-depth question. I was like, who are you was like your? Student You must be journal.

"Your name. Necessary to value and then I think that's how we always think about it on our side is like, what does this entry into the space mean wage? How can we make it better for everybody? Absolutely. It's it's important factor is hey, we gotta be gotta be different. We gotta be addict figs as we've seen with the twitch announcement of doing mid-roll ads sort of forced midrash gamers are not totally receptive to all advertising. It's just when it comes in and the brand like you said, he's worth organizations have a sort of unique thing because the brand is seen as director of supporting the players and the the bread that they're a fan of but especially the players where hey, you know contracts are nearly as big as they are in traditional Sports. So it a brand like a McDonald's or a bubble comes in and they spot their team like the the female Fortnight game on Gog. It's like, oh, okay. I like those people and I'm glad that they now have a big brand partner who's going to help them have money. Like they're going to literally have a direct line there. That's just not how it exists in traditional Sports. Well, that's monster Monday. So if it does go to the players, it's just sort of seat as okay the players get a bunch of money to get the media right off. Does the ticket sales like the players of those issues with bloodied in traditional sports? But it used for it's it's really good to have like the brands or seat as directly supported the players that they're fans of which creates a better brand brand fan relationship. Yeah. No one's like I'm so happy for Steph Curry that he got Muscle Milk has a partner, right? Yeah. Same boat as Hulu off.

"I think it is a unique window right now, but that that window is going to come back because I think you're right. Like if someone try to come up with this and five or six years or even two or three it's going to kind of be like I got my fill somewhere else. You know, it's like it's like when your mom joins Facebook exactly you have to you have to move lot like I guess where we're moving to the next site. I actually think that gets into something that I also I want to talk about. I think that same window exist for brand Partners right now. People are pretty welcoming of Major Brands getting into Esports as long as they show an approach to e-sports. You see things like Puma McDonald's bought a Mercedes Benz in League of Legends. We've seen MasterCard and all be welcomed pretty readily and it feels like there's a window for Brands if they are either one of the first in their sector or they come in and they do some really cool content these words Community is willing to accept them and eventually reach a point of brand numbness that we have in traditional Sports. We're at a certain point. There's just so many sponsors that it's just a a commonplace thing and I feel like there's a window right now you have having worked with so many different brands and brought in a lot of Brands and how to hand in bringing in all these Brands. How do you log? See the brand sponsorship in Esports evolving. Do you think we reached that point International Sports were just like, oh, yeah, every Sports organization has you know, 15 brands that are partnered with and maybe lose a little bit of its luster. Right. Now, it feels like these these activations have still a lot of power behind them for sure a couple of things. I think I think you're definitely right in the explanation of it and when I'm not so friends all the time, it's we're at this unique point where their entry into their space or into the gaming space brings credibility to it and they're actually going to be one that comes.

So I think when universities who are maybe struggling to get these sports or not even sure if it's worth their time if you think okay. This is going to help us get new students. It's going to help existing students like way better experience and not transfer and we can do it in a way where we could take our existing events and just kind of transport them in Fun Ways To The Gaming Community. Then you really start seeing how the pieces fit together and why can't we should be really important for law schools. Absolutely and it also creates opportunities for people who might not feel a connection to their University. I think you've sort of alluded to this.

"You've everyone's trying to make friends you have to do it within like two days. It feels like it's just there's so much pressure and that that's why I think a lot of students end up retreating to their dorm room or transferring or not having great experiences in college because it's just it's too hard. It's too much. So if we can actually use gaming as a way for people to kind of make friends and be social and kind of feel valued and feel like they have a commuter campus then we've done really good for the students are from University. And when you think of gaming any sports in that light, you see that it's much more well-rounded and deeper than Competitive Gaming definitely. I made my friends as my secret weapon to making friends in college was my GameCube open the door room throw all the Super Smash Bros, like just the character select screen and wait for somebody to gain by it. So we buy rebates quickly. And now one of my all-time best friends my friends and rush out the Ross. We just played Super Smash Bros melee for hours upon hours ahead freshman, and we started living together sophomore and junior year. I tell we only people we could play that gave up the campus felt like was was us to have a Spanish a smash Club at the time but we totally totally would have been members but it's gave me three people together creates friendships in a way that is often difficult to do and I love that that focus on casual gaming. I think a lot more people need to focus on hey, what are the great parts of gaming and we're seeing that page of the really popular games lately seeing the rise of Among Us and see the rise of fall guys has made me feel like people are really gravitating to more casual fun in Iraq. Active gaming experiences and I love to see that cuz I think that's something that we could have more of, you know, I'm also guided rocket League whatever I can but having like fun casual gaming experiences is just a better wage a better Vibe for me personally, you know, sometimes it would be the place with the competitive. Sometimes this one show with my friends and I love to see that e Sports organizations are recognizing that and trying to create more initiatives around that aspects. Yeah for sure. When I remember when like Mario Party first came out and I was like, okay, this is just kind of silly like I don't get it. Like I've never really played games like this and then once that's kind of take off I was like, oh this is how people are going.

So, we're looking at it is a lot of universities are building up their Sports programs and we think that's really good. But a lot of them are doing it really geared towards competitive teams trying to figure out. Okay, how do we figure out a schedule or we could get the best players from University and put that money tournaments stage and we think that's interesting and unique but dead. Our thought process is that you know League of Legends like the World Championships is always going to be bigger than maybe like an NCAA Championship and maybe that grows over time but when you should see the structures running in place in the way, you know, the audience is already kind of looking at this stuff. There's really a strike to see the best of the best and we're not a hundred percent sure of college football's game same as ecology Sports. So what our philosophy is is we help universities use gaming any sports to recruit students to their school to retain them as part of school. And then I also encourage alumni to get reinvested in the school and so in doing that our basic concept is you want to focus on casual gamers and the gaming community and not just a small segment of the ultra-competitive teams that might represent the university in the tournament. So a lot of the activations that we think about is, okay, how can we actually dead? Do something that helps a high school student understand what a college e sports program is or how do I become up with career opportunities your.

"You can almost feel like that's just too big of a mountain to climb and you can get in your head and you can be a little bit of mental about it and I just think it was so cool that the players were able to accept the setbacks that they had and still get into Worlds. And now that we're in I'm kind of Old Mystic that like we're going to be able to play with some swag and we're going to be able to play like our game and not tense up because we're just really happy to be a part of it and to get into it and for us feel like our hurdle was getting two worlds. And now the rest of this is kind of like house money in a sense. So I'm really optimistic to see the team's performance and what they can do. Now that we accomplished this goal and so much is already in our rearview. There's definitely something to be said for getting in and that just having no hurdles. Okay, we're here. Let's do whatever we can and you know, not just necessarily happy to be there but having you know every like you said it's house money anything is great. But you guys are in the group stage. It's fantastic you get out of groups. That's amazing. So everything you do is like this is awesome. And I feel like you guys got a good choice. In that in that group, you know, it's there's no bad teams in Worlds, of course, but you did avoid the one group without an LPL team which feels like probably a month and again TSM and fanatic. No slouches by any means but I'm feeling good. I feel good. That's funny thing. Everyone's like well, we don't want to avoid we don't be like the group of death or you know, this humor that and in my opinion like, I don't know. It's the World Championships. Like these are the best teams in the world like there's.

"They have the gen ten ten scholarship recipients backed by JG with that focus in mind for Jordan personally. He spent a lot of time in the traditional Sports World with six years at the MLB and two at the Los Angeles Clippers before moving to Genji in 2018 on the show. We're going to be talking about Genji's initiatives the goals of the organization how the team has built such a strong list of brand partners and what an Esports organization brings to a college program. So Jordan, let me know did I miss anything? That was really excellent. I didn't know you had that prepared. So that's great. I've been familiar. You know, I think I've covered a lot of that over the years. I wrote about the bubble in fortnite team. I interviewed you about the Puma partnership. I was at the twitchcon when Tina raised once, you know, I picked up all this over the overtime for sure. Yep, and we met in Oregon and we met at organ of course. Yeah, you went to my alma mater which is just a quick way to get into my good graces and you when you visit the University of Oregon you talk to those Oregon students. That was a really fun time and that's what we first met. I just need to meet you in person, which was what's really awesome that panel. What was that that was you Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid said totally high-powered panel at the University of Oregon and made me sick so jealous, cuz what I was a kid when I was a student there three years ago. There was no chance anything like that would have ever existed. So I'm glad my my old school is finally getting with the times and bringing students from awesome resources like that song. Yeah, and I remember you asked a I don't remember what you asked but you asked like a very high level in-depth question. And then after I was like who are you was like, you're not you know student you must be a journal like that was a really important like high-level question. You know what it was. I saw your background in the MLB and it was right after the Astros cheating scandal had come out and I asked them what Esports damage control looks like for for a scandal like that and you know, we saw the MLB with their hair out fired was like is Esports prepared for some sort of Scandal like this. So now we're kind of suck at csgo with a pretty big wide-ranging match-fixing deal any answer you guys all gave with no probably not and that seems pretty.
