Emmalee Garrido started an all girls esports team before a Counterstrike tournament in Paris in 2014. They finished second. The next international tournament, in Copenhagen, they won. They were then picked up by British Team Dignitas and in 2016 Team Dignitas were bought by Philadelphia 76ers.

It’s an impressive, fast career.

Indeed, the industry moves fast! It will be interesting to see the lifespan of a career in Esports, as its so new that cases of players retiring are quite rare!

Also the coach of this womens CS team is also actually one of the key components of the spectator experience in Counter Strike, as she is the Observer for many of the tournaments Glad
