"Events like BolderX iGen help provide students opportunities to work on live esports productions, get real-world experience, and gain credits on resume-worthy events before they graduate," says Bennett.
For Game Art and Entertainment Business grad Takasu, the event was a great place to learn more about the behind-the-scenes operations of an esports event. Working with Armada athlete and captain PeptoAbysmal, the team kept track of scores and perspectives to keep the on-screen action happening for viewers.
"Events like this prepare us to be speedy and efficient with our communication and data recording," says Takasu. "Keeping a close eye on the 10 different perspectives and getting to see their reactions while keeping score was both fun and thrilling."
