Today, we're announcing our first-ever organizational partnership with OpTic Gaming, the storied professional esports and entertainment company owned by Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez, who will also join Partie’s board of directors as a key advisor.
Partie has partnered with OpTic to assist in platform growth and to drive awareness of its mission to provide alternate revenue streams for gamers, as well as promote the platform’s core values of safety, trust and inclusivity across the gaming industry.
OpTic will host Parties with members in the Partie application, creating platform-specific content and co-hosting Partie Bounties, offering community members the chance to play and interact directly with OpTic Gaming like never before. Furthermore, Rodriguez’s involvement on Partie’s corporate board will contribute to existing and future initiatives pertaining to strategic programs, industry partnerships and platform development.
“Gaming has an incredible legacy in our global culture, but negative playing experiences have been a constant issue,” said Hector “HECZ” Rodriguez, Owner and CEO of OpTic Gaming. “We believe in Partie’s ability to improve every gamer’s experience by providing a safe environment to connect with one another, build relationships and even earn from upholding positive values.”
“We believe everything Hector has built with OpTic Gaming directly aligns with the values, community and goals that we have with Partie,” said Frankie Colamarino, Co-Founder and CEO of Partie. “It’s truly exciting that an entirely new generation of gamers is engaging with OpTic Gaming and understanding how critical they’ve been to the growth and popularity of gaming over the last two decades. We’re thrilled to officially welcome the OpTic Gaming family to our company and community.”
Rodriguez recently reacquired OpTic Gaming, which he helped found, from Immortals Gaming Club and renamed the Chicago Call of Duty League franchise to OpTic Chicago.
