Counter Logic Gaming Taps Missharvey For Outreach Position

North American gaming company Counter Logic Gaming – a frequent eSports partner with the Madison Square Garden Company [stock_market_widget type="inline" template="generic" color="default" assets="MSG" markup="(NYSE: {symbol} {currency_symbol}{price} ({change_pct}))" api="yf"] – today announced the return of a former competitive gaming star.

Stephanie Harvey, more commonly known by her handle Missharvey, has moved into the role of director of eSports franchise development and outreach for Counter Logic Gaming (CLG).

In that position, Missharvey will specifically work towards encouraging diversity and a broader player base in competitive gaming event communities.

Harvey was formerly a Counter-Strike and CS:GO pro player with the Counter Logic Gaming Red team, and is known internationally for winning season 3 of Canada’s Smartest Person, as well as hitting the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in 2014.

Discussing her return to the company in the new role after previously working as a developer and pro player, Harvey commented:

I’m thrilled to be able to put my full support behind the programs CLG is creating for the gaming communities. There is a tremendous opportunity to take the next step in supporting them and lifting up the amateur scene in ways that would make us all stronger. I can’t wait to hit the ground running and advance this platform so that it may reach even more women and girls in gaming, but also anyone else interested in being a part of our community. 

Both the eSports community and single player gaming companies have seen a marked shift over the past year towards a larger focus on female gamers in what has traditionally been a male-dominated industry.

The recently-released Gears 5 — a staple of multiplayer eSports events — featured a female protagonist for the first time in the series, while the latest Wolfenstein title shifted its timeline forward several decades to focus on the previous hero’s daughters.

WWE2K20 also notably included both a male and female wrestler as cover stars for the first time in franchise history, with the game’s Showcase mode covering the ascent of women in the WWE since 2014.

In other Counter Logic Gaming news, the organization recently took part in the TwitchCon 2019 festivities, and additionally released a new line of modern apparel in conjunction with clothing brand ULT eSports.
