With less than two weeks to go until his next Major League Gaming Pro Circuit competition, three-time reigning champion David “Walshy” Walsh will bring two of the series’ top ranked Halo 3 teams, Carbon and Heaven and Earth, from across the country to train at a truly unique gaming compound at Red Bull headquarters.
Locked in a state-of-the-art facility in Santa Monica, these teams will spend 11 hours a day for five consecutive days eating, breathing, and sleeping the game. They’ll strengthen their skills and learn the ins and outs of their opponents. What’s even better is that during three hours of each day, their progress will be broadcast to the world during a live web stream hosted here at RedBullUSA.com. Viewers will even be able to get in on the action by participating in the stream’s live chat feature.
From the moment the teams arrive in California, they’ll be on a strict gaming regimen completely taken away from the distractions of their daily lives.
“We are hoping to fine-tune our strategies before the upcoming event,” explains Walshy. “LAN-ing against another top team will let us know what we excel at and what we need to change before the tournament.”
Just like a football team prepares at a pre-season training camp or Shaun White escapes to his secret halfpipe, these gamers will totally immerse themselves into their profession in hopes of achieving victory.
“Having the LAN at Red Bull headquarters really gives us the opportunity for great practice and an awesome experience,” added Walshy.
