Frisco, the World Headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys, Aims to Boost
Player Longevity and Advance Esports Industry

FRISCO, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Complexity?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#Complexitylt;/agt;–Complexity Gaming, one of North America’s most elite and longest

seamless coordination between the two organizations, and establishing
Complexity as one of the first esports organizations to fully integrate
and connect with a traditional sports franchise. Complexity’s management
team will be able to learn and adopt best practices from one of the most
renowned professional sports organizations, and Complexity’s esports
athletes will be able to train within the same facilities as the Dallas
Cowboys players and enjoy professionally prepared nutritional meals
together at the Training Table inside Ford Center at The Star, as well

Manager, Dallas Cowboys. “The GameStop Performance Center will bring a
new excitement to the world of esports, and adds yet another unique
experience to The Star that fans and visitors will be able to see up
close and in person on our campus.”

Designed by leading design firm ICRAVE, the GameStop Performance Center
houses a public area and retail space for visitors, as well as
cutting-edge performance facilities for team members, including
recovery, wellness and mental health amenities. The private area allows
Complexity’s athletes, coaches and front office management to oversee
day-to-day operations, while also providing a variety of resources to
improve players’ physical and mental skills through:

  • Advanced Training Rooms: The unprecedented training rooms have
    the ability to mimic main stage competition settings, such as custom
    LED lighting, advanced sound engineering, and precision climate
    control.
  • Mind Gym: In partnership with Mamba Sports Academy and HyperX,
    the Mind Gym will feature proprietary training software, high-end
    equipment for performance training, as well as rubber flooring for low
    impact activities, such as yoga, to promote player cognitive
    preparation and mental wellness.
  • Decompression Porch: Players can recover from high-intensity
    training in a designated area that is outfitted with recovery
    equipment, cryotherapy, nap pods, flowing natural light, and calming
    music designed for mental relaxation.
  • Innovation Lab: Complexity will utilize this space to research,
    develop and test products in real time to enhance the industry
    standard for esports wellness and to boost player performance and
    longevity, as well as protect against injury.
  • Miller Lite Player Lounge: A dedicated space for players to
    relax with one another, coaches, and the management team, the Miller
    Lite Player Lounge will also feature a video wall, where Complexity
    can watch and support other esports teams during competitions. Miller
    Lite beer will be available on tap for of-age players to celebrate big
    wins.
  • Stream Studio: Complexity’s players and talent will be able to
    create high-quality content in real time. Additionally, Complexity’s
    content team will be able to use the space’s versatility for filming
    original content.

With The Star serving as a cornerstone of the local Frisco community,
the GameStop Performance Center will also be open to the public to
socialize, shop for Complexity merchandise, attend events, and enjoy
other entertainment beginning in summer 2019. The public space will
feature a 50-foot LED ribbon, as well as a Planar-provided 18-foot video
wall that streams a variety of esports content from live tournament
coverage to Complexity’s original series. Tablets will be available to
casual gamers interested in playing the hottest mobile game titles,
while high-powered gaming stations allow esports enthusiasts to go
head-to-head in the latest PC games.

“We believe GameStop is the cultural center for gaming across every
local neighborhood, and the GameStop Performance Center will become the
epicenter for esports training where amateurs can gain access to
insights and strategy from some of the best professionals in esports,”
said Frank Hamlin, Chief Marketing Officer, GameStop. “It doesn’t get
any better for amateurs of all ages looking to learn and compete at the
highest level with this state-of-the art training facility.”

To further illustrate its vision for the future of esports, Complexity
has partnered with a variety of endemic and non-endemic industry
leaders, such as GameStop, MSI, HyperX, Planar, and MillerCoors. Beyond
providing value to Complexity, each partnership has been constructed to
advance the esports industry as a whole, such as engaging the esports
community globally and locally, uncovering and sharing solutions that
prevent esports injuries and extend professional careers of esports
athletes, and creating meaningful esports experiences.
