World's first esports hotel opens in Taiwan

Esports is becoming bigger and bigger every day. With that knowledge, non-endemic brands are fighting to enter the scene, aiming to do something new to draw attention to themselves. That's why Taiwanese hotel chain 168inn has launched an "i Hotel", a hotel designed with the aim of attracting esports enthusiasts. (In a video published earlier this summer, LinusTechTips gave a rundown of what's to expect if you check in to this one-of-a-kind hotel.) When entering the hotel the first thing you'll notice is the 12-player LAN center they have set up. It's open 24/7 and is free to use for all guests at the hotel. And you don't have to worry about the computers not having good enough hardware, as they're all fitted with i7 processors and GTX 1080TI graphics cards. And, if you're into VR, they also have an HTC Vive setup in the hallway. Everything a gamer needs.
