Best known for its League of Legends team, Chinese organization ‘Oh My God’ (OMG) provides their players with an incredible training facility – in the shape of a spaceship.
Formed in 2012, OMG started its esports division by recruiting a Chinese League of Legends team. In the six years since, it has had great success, a staple in the Chinese Pro League, and managed a top 4 at Worlds 2014.
They also have a PUBG team, who are currently dominating at the PGI 2018 PUBG Global Invitational first-person tournament, with a strong lead in the standings after the first day of competition.
To keep their players at the top of their game, OMG offers them a gaming house just like many other top esports teams do, especially in Asia.
But if you’ve ever been impressed by Team Vitality’s castle-like gaming house for its League of Legends team, it’s nothing compared to OMG’s new home since March 2017.
Located in Shanghai, it was designed by the GuTeng studio. It measures 2,000 square meters, and has been imagined as a true three-storey spaceship in a science-fiction style.
The official project page shows the ground floor is dedicated to the administration and management of the structure. The first floor mainly hosts the Overwatch and King Pro League teams, while the second floor is dedicated to League of Legends.
The studio also claims to have been inspired by Gavin Hood’s The Strategy Ender movie, released in 2013.
