About Teamplay

Teamplay is getting ramped up and we've started closed demo events during sping of 2018, from where we expanded to open events on August 2018. We're based in Salo and work between Turku and Helsinki. At the moment we can be best reached through social media or email.

We work with companies and organizations by providing equipment to get in to the world of esports and try out how it feels, on regular basis as well. esports is demanding and in team based sports (not all eSprorts is played as a team) there is a common base for success: Team spirits, communication, preparation as well as individual skill.

People behind Teamplay are active hobbyists on esports that see the future and want to invest in it. Here is a little something about who we are.

We've included some pictures about getting and building our units, ask away in e.g. social media for details!

Packed with hardware

Went and got our hardware... It does not fit. Most of our displays had to be picked up on another run.


Box^2

Opening a Phanteks box and inside we found another box? Anyone got flashbacks about "Pimp My Ride"?


Corsair RM-series PSU

Carefully selected power supplies. Many put little effort to these, but they happen to be the most critical part in the main unit; If it breaks, the whole unit might be a goner.


Teamplay main unit from the inside

Black on Black? First main unit in the works.


Installing parts in a Teamplay unit

Nonstop making sure Aorus graphics card is secured tightly.

Taking the first one for a spin, starting to look a lot brighter!


SilentiumPC Fortis 3 HE1425 v2 CPU cooler fastened

Aorus AX370-Gaming K5 and SilentiumPC Fortis 3 HE1425 v2 meet. Fan clips are always as much fun.
