          The United States Navy begins its esports journey with its newest team, while actively looking for talent. EG posted their recruitment advertisement on Twitter, hoping to grab some attention from aspiring pro players. The partnership will help Goats and Glory “Sailors” become good enough to compete in tournaments and events.

        Although this YouTube content series seems like the start of something big, they plan on continuing the partnership for much longer than six episodes. This September, both teams will appear together at TwitchCon’s event in San Diego. During the event, EG will broadcast a live special called “Squad Streams.” During the stream, EG will have a chance to play with fans while simultaneously adding Sailors to their broadcast.

        Evil Geniuses CEO Nicole LaPointe Jameson shared a few thoughts on their partnership: “It’s an incredible honor to partner with America’s Navy as they take this step forward into esports… We are humbled to stand shoulder to shoulder with this incredible institution.” She also indicates that both teams share the same values, which are excellence, teamwork, and discipline.
