REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
IGNITE UPDATE: In celebration of the grand opening of the Tech Time Game Lounge in Woodbridge, VA, the Game Gym and Stevenson University have decided to move IGNITE and partner with Tech Time! For more information on Tech Time and renderings of their beautiful facility, check out https://techtimegaming.com/
The Game Gym, Stevenson University Esports, and our sponsors are proud to announce IGNITE, a live, amateurs only esports competition featuring League of Legends and Overwatch. The goal of IGNITE is to produce more, live, local competition experiences for young gamers and to promote healthy gaming habits in our communities. There will be a Winter and a Spring 2019 IGNITE, so this isn’t a one-off! Over time, is our goal for IGNITE to become the premier showcase of amateur talent in the DMV area and be a launching pad for those interested in pursuing esports at the next level.
How it Works: Competitors can sign up as a team, a group, or an individual. Our goal is to put together as many teams as possible before the start of the tournament so teams can practice together, so registering early is important. Each team will be assigned a Game Gym or Stevenson University staff member that will act as the team’s coach. During the month before the competition, teams will work with their coaches to develop strategies and discuss competition preparation. On competition day, teams will arrive, coaches will lead warm up, and we will light this fire.
For those not competing in the main event, we will have a free play area sponsored by Esports Fair Play and presenters on careers in the gaming industry, healthy gaming habits, and information on collegiate esports including information about Stevenson University.
All teams must consist of members who are 18 or under, are not in college, and are of amateur status.
FALL 2018 IGNITE
The coaching staff and I are incredibly proud of all of our competitors. It isn’t about winning and losing, its about making the effort and our members give one helluva effort. Let’s look forward to Spring IGNITE!
