The debut of GameCrib competed with the Sony Meeting on Feb. 20. The show chronicles TSM Snapdragon’s progression through season 3. Watching the web series gives fans a lot of insight into the professional Esports team.
Running less than 15 minutes the show manages to fit a lot in. The first episode explains the reasoning behind the addition of ‘Snapdragon’ to the team’s name. Turns out Snapdragon is the name of a processor used in smartphones and tablets. With Qualcomm sponsoring the team the super fast processor got added to their name.
Other things revealed during the first episode of GameCrib was the reason for the teams poor performance in the season 2 world championship. Reginald blamed Dyrus for leaking strategies, spending time with his girlfriend instead of practicing, and just not taking his job seriously. Dyrus admitted to regarding season 2 as being more casual yet say’s things feel more serious this season.
The series gives fans a window into the pro-players lives illuminating details that they may not have divulged otherwise. For instance Chaox works against the skinny Asian gamer stereotype by working out with weights in his room and Dyrus is perpetually late leading the team to put his bedroom literally right next to their gaming room.
The gaming house is a bit of a work in progress with little else than a microwave, mattresses, and PC’s. Apparently however that’s a step up from their gaming house last year. The show takes a bit of the glamour out of being a professional gamer. In fact aside from a cheezy voice-over in the intro, and the obligatory plug for any device that uses a Snapdragon processor the show doesn't seem like your usual scripted reality TV. Instead it seems like a straightforward documentary of TSM’s progress in Season 3. Yet episode 2 promises a bit more drama and fans of TSM Snapdragon should definitely tune in.
