Core Professional Gaming (Core Gaming LLC) is a StarCraft II, League of Legends, and Dota 2 community comprised of over 300 active members.[Citation needed] Established on May 1st 2013, Core Gaming LLC (Core) is owned in part by CorePRO Design LLC, a graphics and web development company based in California. The community sponsors a professional StarCraft II team and professional League of Legends team.
Core Gaming's rostered players receive a monthly salary, gear perks, and travel subsidies for major tournaments as well as merit pay for performance on ladder and at tournaments.
After the pro player contracts expired in March 2014, Core Gaming decided to shift gears and focus on the community. With the transition, players were found homes on other teams, and management shifted around. Core Gaming transitioned to being a community based team with no salaried players. In September 2014, the former Core Gaming player EJK declared that the team had no players any more. At that date, the website had been closed, and there had been no activity on social media since May 2014.
