Female Gamers to Compete for Spot on Frag Doll Roster
Ready to get PWNED by the most talented gamers?
Two of the world’s most recognized gaming teams – Team Pandemic and Ubisoft’s Frag Dolls – have scored sponsorships from Dell, the company announced today. The deals bring together some of the best professional gaming talent in the industry, male and female, and the best PC gaming products, specifically Dell XPS™ gaming platforms.
“With these sponsorships, Dell is ratcheting up its ability to network and play directly with college student and women gamers, via gaming events, online forums and other digital media,” said Susan Kittleson, director of Dell games and customer marketing. “Dell wants to showcase PC gaming at its highest level, and there’s no better way than to partner the best talent with our awarding-winning hardware.”
As part of the Frag Dolls’ sponsorship, Dell and the team will launch a search for the most hardcore, competitive female PC gamer and offer her a spot in the unique lineup -- and the opportunity to compete in tournaments around the world. Female gamers who think they’re tough enough to go head-to-head against the world’s best can sign up at www.fragdolls.com. Applicants will have the opportunity for in-person interviews Aug. 2-5 in the Dell booth at QuakeCon in Dallas. Qualifiers will compete in the finals on games like Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Vegas at Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) in Seattle, Aug. 24-26. The winner will be offered a spot on the team.
The Frag Dolls, a team of seven dedicated female gamers assembled by game publisher Ubisoft, are recognized as some of the best players in the world. In addition to attending gaming events, members of the unique and popular gaming team will post monthly columns with tips and trends, participate in podcasts and interviews, and post blogs on a special section of Dell’s new interactive web destination, www.delllounge.com.
“We can’t wait to welcome a new Frag Doll to the team,” said Morgan “Rhoulette” Romine, Frag Doll team captain. “One of our goals is to be advocates for gaming on all platforms and Dell is an ideal partner to help us make this a reality.”
The Dell University program is also sponsoring Team Pandemic under the Dell Unleashed banner. Team Pandemic will be the first pro-gaming team to exclusively game on Dell XPS systems featuring Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo processors and Microsoft® Windows VistaTM Ultimate.
“Dell’s college initiative provides us the opportunity to work closely with the industry’s technology leaders,” said Chris Lemley, president of Team Pandemic. “With Dell Unleashed as a title partner, we have a unique variety of media to further reach the college-aged gamer.”
This fall, Team Pandemic and Dell will travel to several university campuses to host on-site and online collegiate gaming tournaments. Top individual prizes will include a trip to Sweden with Team Pandemic for the World Series of Video Game finals.

The Dell University program offers education discounts and customized PC bundles, including XPS systems, for students, faculty, and staff at hundreds of participating schools across the country. More information and eligibility requirements are at www.DellUnleashed.com.
