White Rabbit Gaming have just announced the addition of Amaryllis Gaming to the WRG fold. Amaryllis Gaming are a successful all-female multi gaming organization (MGO). They recently finished in a commendable third place in the Mettlestate ASUS ROG Valkyrie CS:GO league, behind winners Bravado Finesse and second-placed Leetpro. White Rabbit Gaming are not so much dipping a toe into the female CS:GO and esports scene, as diving in head first.
Talking to Brinker
In the aftermath of their third place exit at Valkyrie, I managed to speak with the founder and team captain of Amaryllis Gaming, Ashley “Brinker” Groves. Of course all the focus was on the impending WRG move.
ax: It must be pretty special starting a team and later being picked up by a big name organization like WRG. Talk us through how that happened and your feelings on it.
Brinker: It is truly great to be invited to join the WRG organisation. The one fan on my ASUS RX480 graphics card stopped working after one of the Valkyrie games. I reached out to ASUS to purchase a new one and was put in contact with Rhys “WookiE XXXL” Crossley, coach to the WRG Aspire team. He recognized my name and knew who I was. I took my card to ASUS to have it fixed and we got talking. Rhys mentioned that Alwyn (Venter of WRG) may be interested in picking up an all female team. He put us in contact with each other and now here we are!
What are the positives that WRG will bring to the team?
WRG brings so much experience and structure that I feel will help shape us into the champions we are ready to become. On a personal level, I have always wanted to become even more involved in the esports community but never quite knew how to give back. I feel that with the assistance of WRG and the guidance of Alwyn, I will finally be able to share my passion with others.
