Overview[edit]

Team Acer is the eSports division of international computer manufacturer Acer Inc. Even though the company originated in Taiwan and has its headquarters in New Taipei City, the team's headquarters are situated in Bad Tölz, Bavaria, Germany just outside the Bavarian state capital of Munich.

The team was founded in 2011, and currently has teams in StarCraft II, Trackmania and FIFA. Team Acer's content creators also produced the popular video interview series, Grilled.

In April 2013, Team Acer opened a gaming house in Bad Tölz for the team's players and crew to congregate to prepare for any events or projects.[1]

Acer is also involved in the organisation of the Acer TeamStory Cup by TaKeTV, an international team league with offline finals at the TaKeTV studios in Krefeld, Germany. Team Acer was an invitee for the first two seasons in 2013, placing second in Season 1 and first in Season 2.
