RPG University Gaming Event

I would bet that every single gamer reading this right now has at least at some point in their life tried some type of RPG (Role-Playing Game), am I right? Think games like Elder Scrolls, The Witcher, Final Fantasy, and many more. Today, the University Gaming Network Society (that’s us!) is looking to bring an RPG gaming event to Your University!

First of all, if you’re new to Role-Playing Games, let’s talk about what an RPG is. The definition of RPG is a game in which you assume the role of a fictional character in a, most of the time, fantasy or sci-fi setting. In RPGs, you navigate this fictional world, working through the narrative and completing quests and side quests. These types of games are fun because your actions usually have consequences and you must think about your next step very carefully.

What people like about modern Role-Playing Games is that their narrative is so rich with incredible characters, voice acting and all different types of situations you can find yourself in. Personally, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the best RPG I have ever played, no doubt at all. The game is just, simply put, a masterpiece. The story, the side quests, combat, etc, is right on point. Especially the world. But I would assume that’s due to the game being based on a book series by a Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski.

At the end of the day, all gamers enjoy a well put-together RPG. So that is why we want everyone to experience these amazing games.

The RPG Event itself, let’s talk about it.

If you’re a big fan of RPGs like myself, you will definitely enjoy what we have in store for you. You will be able to try out both new and old classic RPG games with your friends, play co-op campaigns and meet other gamers. We will also have some cool gaming peripherals for you to buy and souvenirs to bring home!

Unlike the events and tournaments we organized in the past, this will be a 2-day event. So even if you can’t be there on day one, we are making sure you don’t miss a thing!

So if you are an RPG enthusiast, don’t be hesitant to come and hang out with us. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

World of Warcraft Arena Tournament

Welcome to yet another event organized by the University Network Gaming Society. In the past, we’ve held events such as CS:GO tournaments, tabletop tournaments, or DOTA 2 tournaments, but this time we’re bringing you something new. This time, we’ll be competing in World of Warcraft’s Arena.

What is Arena in World of Warcraft?

But first, for those of you who don’t play WoW, let me elaborate a bit. World of Warcraft is an MMORPG developed by Blizzard Entertainment and released back in 2004. Since then, the game has seen 7 expansion packs, with the latest being Battle For Azeroth.

Within the World of Warcraft, there’s a competitive system called the Arena. Arena is a small-scale environment where 3 players are pitted against 3 other players. The goal is to eliminate the opposing team and win the match. Usually teams will have 2 DPS and 1 Healer. This may sound boring at first, but wait until you get into it, it’s a ton of fun, trust me.

The best Arena players in World of Warcraft are rewarded with some pretty sweet in-game items such as one-time unique Gladiator flying mount and the Gladiator title, which are only obtainable once each season. That means that once you get a season-specific mount and title, it can never be obtained again, therefore making them the most sought after rewards in the game.

Tournament Details

As usual, we will have 16 teams competing for the trophy. Each team may have an additional back up player for a total of 4 players per team. In addition, each team may have 2 additional characters they can swap after each game if they choose to. That means that you will be able to play a total of 3 classes during the tournament, and you can swap between them at any given time.

Rewards for the top 3 teams will be some in-game goodies such as store mounts, pets, cosmetic items and so on.

I would also like to take a moment to thank BoostArmory for helping us organize this tournament and provide all the necessary equipment required for this to happen. If you’re a long time World of Warcraft player but would like to improve your standing in the game, I would recommend visiting their website and checking out their services. I have personally bought multiple boosts from them, including the WoW Arena Boost. If you don’t have the gear necessary to compete in the tournament, you can always count on BoostArmory to help you out with any gearing up or powerleveling.
