onGamers News

Welcome to the onGamers beta

A new esports brand joins GameSpot, Giant Bomb, GameFAQs and the rest of the CBS Interactive family.

Hey you, beta tester, thank you. We know you didn’t really sign up for this, but we still wanted to thank you for engaging and participating in this beta test, exclusively made available to anyone with an Internet browser. We’ll spend the next few months building new functionality and more shiny clickable things, but we wanted to get started with editorial coverage sooner than that.

At the core of any great editorial team are people with a passion and love for a certain topic -- and for onGamers, this is esports. No matter what you call it -- eSports, pro gaming, competitive gaming, professional gaming, electronic sports, cybersport (eww) -- this is a young industry that still doesn’t have a particularly official name. We will simply call it esports.

At onGamers, we will inform, educate and entertain anyone who shares our passion for esports -- the tournaments, the players, the competition, the personalities, the games, the community, the events, the dedication and everything in-between.

I am incredibly proud to present our new editorial team:

  • Cody ‘evoli’ Conners, Managing Editor
  • Matt ‘Cyborgmatt’ Bailey, Senior eSports Editor
  • Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau, Senior eSports Editor
  • Duncan ‘Thorin’ Shields, Senior eSports Content Creator
  • Travis Gafford, Senior eSports Content Creator

  • Amelia 'Sunset' Savery, Contributing Writer
  • Chris 'keekerdc' Schetter, Contributing Writer
  • Cameron 'famystron' Carson, Contributing Writer
  • Aaron 'Spit-wad' Stern, Contributing Writer
  • Rhea 'Ashelia' Monique, Contributing Writer
  • Chris Bizell, Contributing Writer
  • Ambrielle 'KatanaMordecai' Army, Contributing Writer
  • Cassandra Khaw, Contributing Writer

  • Irena 'Curlychan' Pencheva, Contributing Writer
    Trent 'onlywonderboy' Stephens, Contributing Writer

  • Brandon 'Atrioc' Ewing, Contributing Writer
  • Justin Cady, Contributing Writer
  • Taylor Cocke, Contributing Writer

Between us, we have covered almost every job and position in esports, and this experience will help us as we build onGamers to become a source for esports content you can trust and rely on. We're incredibly excited to get started.
