Women: Get in the Game

Get in the Game

Starting this month, WITI is helping sponsor an all female video gaming team to compete at professional tournaments. The PMS Clan is the world's largest female gaming team that was formed over three years ago at the launch of Xbox Live.

Competing on all gaming platforms, and with over 400 girls and women from across the globe, PMS Clan is bringing recognition to female gamers everywhere. Recently featured in Entertainment Weekly, Tips and Tricks Magazine, and a gaming special on MTV, these players mean business.

Members have competed at all Major League Gaming tournaments this year, and have set new records for females in gaming. At the recent MLG event for Halo 2 in Las Vegas, Sarah Nye (known as "PMS Lelu") was the first female to place top 32 in a free-for-all competition. This past summer, two PMS teams placed top 8 at the CyberAthlete Summer Championships in Dallas, TX, giving them their first international title.

With more professional gaming events every year, the PMS Clan has built a solid foundation for team-oriented game play and tournament participation. The mission of the PMS Clan is to provide a fun, safe, competitive environment for women of all ages to be able to play and enjoy gaming both online and in tournament settings. PMS' goals for the coming year are to compete at a high level in every major tournament, promote female gaming at major electronic expositions and train with the top gamers of the world.
