Slingshot Readers,

We NEED your support. More specifically, the author of this article needs your support. If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat. If just half our readers gave 1 DOLLAR a month, one measly dollar, we could fund all the work from StuChiu, DeKay, Emily, Andrew (and even Vince). If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support. After all, you're what makes all this happen. Learn more

ROX Gaming launches ROX Gaming Academy

ROX Gaming announced the ROX Gaming Academy

ROX Gaming announced Sunday it has launched ROX Gaming Academy in collaboration with PC hardware company ASUS.

ROX Gaming Academy will be operated by ROX Gaming, and sponsors includes Daily eSports, the Korean e-Sports Association (KeSPA), Gachon University Graduate School of Game, and ChungKang College of Cultural Industries.

The academy will offer a number of programs in order to create an environment where talented players will be able to be recruited by teams participating in League Champions Korea with the eSports Player Program. The aim of the program is to create a recruitment cycle of players for both domestic and international teams.

The first ROX Gaming Academy held classes including psychological counseling, physical training, lectures from coaches and head coaches, and individual mentoring sessions from esports officials from Aug. 1-4. The second location of the academy will take place at ChungKang College of Cultural Industries.

ROX Gaming is active in multiple esports, including League of Legends with the ROX Tigers, Overwatch with ROX Orcas, and Vainglory with ROX Armada. The computers for the academy will be provided and installed by ASUS for participants to use during their training.

Daily eSports is a media outlet that covers Korean esports, so its sponsorship of this academy creates a potential conflict of interest.
