We’ve recently updated our renders with new additions.
The render above is for our temporary space that we will be using to house our events and activities while the new space is being constructed. This is our main stage. Like our new stadium, it will be able to handle 1 PC to as many as 6 PCs on either side.
This area will be a flex space for us which we can convert into multiple uses. Think of it as a potential lounge, or a place to relax for downtime. It can also be used as a place for potential vendors or other event related activities.
Lastly, this is our LAN area. Originally started with 40 PCs, but we’ll be increasing it in order to accommodate 48 PCs (We love Overwatch).
This area here will be our main stage in our new facility. Stations can be individually configured, added, or removed.
On the second floor, we will have a bar overlooking the main stage. There will be a VIP lounge on both ends of the stadium. You can see in the render above that there is a room next to the VIP lounge. This room will be set aside specifically for streamers or influencers who wish to stream from the stadium during major events.
The training center is located on the first floor. We will start with 40 PCs (in addition to the 10 PCs on the main stage) but there will be room for growth. Computers can be moved into the stadium area for event group stages as we intend for our audience seats to retract and create an open competition space.
Food services area by the entrance. We will be offering three quick serve options for players and attendees.
Here is a different render of the first floor layout.
On the second floor, the giant empty space on the right is another gaming space. We will be partnering with our friends at Vancouver Street Battle as they move into that area.
