Is it April yet!? Our team is hard at working prepping for the 10th anniversary of Gamers for Giving, and we can’t wait to celebrate the occasion with you all! With less than 8 weeks to go before the big weekend, be sure to check the Gamers for Giving website frequently as we’ll be pushing out a slew of updates on this year’s fundraiser.
Our team is in the midst of finalizing tournament settings for our 2018 headline competitions. As of this blog post, we’ve posted v1 drafts of our settings for League of Legends, Counter-Strike, Overwatch, StarCraft, Call of Duty, and Smash Bros Melee. Documentation for each respective tournament can be downloaded on the Tournaments page. Prizing for each of the mentioned tournaments has also been posted.
Additionally, all teams that finish in 1st place within their respective tournaments will walk home with a special 10th anniversary trophy, commemorating this year’s event.
Settings for Halo, Hearthstone, Rocket League, and PUBG will be posted in the coming days.
Remember – all LAN attendees are eligible to compete in PC gaming tournaments. Players are allowed to compete in multiple events, so long as their participation does not cause significant tournament delays (at the discretion of moderators).
Passes to compete in console tournaments are sold separately and can be purchased here.
If you have any feedback or suggestions, feel free to drop us an email! Our tournament moderators are happy to consider ideas submitted by the community.
We look forward to seeing you on April 28th & 29th at the EMU Convocation Center!
