DarkZero Esports Opens Las Vegas Gaming House
DarkZero Esports has just opened the doors of their new 8,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom gaming house for content creators and players, which their CEO Zach Matula bought in March. It’s been a while since then, but between COVID-19 and making sure everything is perfect, it sounds like it was worth it.
Las Vegas is very quickly growing into an esports hub for the West Coast, if not all of America. DarkZero putting their streaming house there is a sure sign of that. Between DarkZero and sites like the HyperX Esports Arena, esports is booming in Vegas.
The Hall of Heroes
Perhaps one of the most exciting things about the DarkZero Esports multi-million dollar gaming house is that the living spaces are intentionally separate from the office space. Doing this will help combat burnout and let the players/content creators get away from the work aspect of their life and relax elsewhere. Don’t be misled. Content creation and streaming is work and can be incredibly hard work.
Director of Operations Rob Stamey, Ghost Gaming’s former general manager, worked all summer with Kelly Edwards, a celebrity designer, to make this space ideal and perfect for the DarkZero Esports players, in time for the Aug. 30 opening. It’s essential to have a healthy lifestyle in this kind of business. Having the work and personal spaces separate is undoubtedly going to help. They also have a dedicated coaching area, production studio, two streaming pods, an indoor gym, and a state-of-the-art bullpen to train in.
We also love the idea of the “Hall of Heroes” section of the gaming house, dedicated to the org, players, and staff achievements. They will have hand-painted portraits of successful, distinguished players, content creators, and coaching staff who have been with DarkZero Esports for more than two years.
