Sky Broadband and Guild esports invited male gamers and influencers down to our immersive training room at the Sky Guild Gaming Centre, with one simple challenge:
”Do you have what it takes to make it as a pro gamer?
But this room wasn’t testing their ability to game. It was testing their ability to game, whilst taking abuse. We turned the space into a state-of-the-art gaming simulator where the participants trained with a bespoke first person shooting game. Whilst playing the walls came to life and shadowed men begun hurling abuse at our participants. So for the first time, some of the most influential gamers in the industry experienced what it really takes to be a woman gamer.
Even though the training room at Guild HQ wasn’t real, all the language they heard was. Sourced directly from women in the gaming community.
We let influencers tell their own stories of the experience. And soon, they began rallying behind our message on social media.
