Ok Edmonton… 2017 saw some strides taken in making our eSports scene more visible on a global scale. Red Bull & Memory Express both stepped in to sponsor tournaments with High Score eSports and the Edmonton Fighting Game Community.
That said, 2018 is the year we take an even bigger leap forward. I can’t say much yet (I love being cryptic) but if you have even a passing interest in competing in League of Legends or Overwatch; it’s time to get your team together because wow is there some stuff heading your way…
We’re not going to leave you to do this by yourself though. There’s going to be events soon to help you meet some teammates and get started. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and join the Edmonton Nerd Networking Facebook group for updates.
For now, keep an eye on the tournament event page for the Feb. 2 Overwatch tourney by checking the link here.
Message High Score directly through Messenger with the following info to register you and your team.
-All teammates full names and full Battlenet tags.
-Team captain/point of contact email address.
-Team logo.(doesn’t need to be amazing, Have fun with it!)
Once 8 teams are registered we will move forward with collecting entry fees from each team.
