Fortnite Battle Royale University Event

You knew this was coming, let’s be honest. Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world right now. It seems like literally everyone is playing it. That’s why we thought it would be a good idea to organize an event around it at Your University.

First released on July 25th in 2017, Fortnite: Save the World is a survival co-op third-person shooter game where up to four players fight zombie-like creatures and defend and build their own forts. By September of 2017, Epic Games released Fortnite: Battle Royale as a free to play game mode of the original game. This version rapidly gained players, with over 10 million players in its first two weeks. This rapid growth forced Epic to separate their development team to continue working on Save the World next to Battle Royale.

With the introduction of skins and other cosmetic items to Battle Royale, Epic quickly gathered enough financial resources to organize absolutely huge events that featured the most popular streamers and YouTubers, promoting the game even further. One of such events was a live stream by Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. It was a live stream sponsored by Red Bull on New York’s Time Square. 12 hours of Fortnite content with famous guests on New Year’s Eve, absolutely amazing. In addition, Ninja and Red Bull gave out over $100.000 in bits.

PUBG Battle Royale University Event

At this point, you must have heard about PUBG (Playerunkown’s Battlegrounds). It’s a battle royale game everyone’s been talking about and playing recently. There were even some official tournaments with hefty cash rewards. So, it being a very competitive game, we are looking to organize an event at Your University!

First of all, let’s talk about this “Battle Royale” game mode that has swept the gaming scene by surprise these past few years. Battle Royale game mode is a genre that has the elements of survival, exploration, eliminating your opponents and staying the last man standing at the end of the match. There are hundreds of players in a single match, each of them fighting to survive and win the game. Some examples of the more popular Battle Royale games are:

Recently, in 2017 and 2018, this game mode has completely taken over the gaming scene with the release of Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode and PUBG. Suddenly everyone was playing these games. The most popular streaming platform Twitch.tv had Fortnite and PUBG consistently at numbers 1 and 2 of the games with most viewers, sometimes even reaching millions. So you kind of have the idea how popular this game mode has become.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) Tournament at your University

Everyone likes video games, right? Well, not everyone, but chances are that if you are reading this, you enjoy spending your free time playing video games. That is why, today, we would like to bring a CS:GO tournament at Your University.

Ever heard of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, or just CS:GO for short? It is a First-Person Shooter (FPS) multiplayer game developed by Valve in 2012 that pits two teams of 5 players against each other (Terrorists versus Counter-Terrorists) tasked to eliminate the other team or complete an objective and win the match.

ESL CS:GO TOURNAMENT

The first version of Counter-Strike was a mod for Valve’s very popular game Half-Life before it’s original release in 2000. The game was a HUGE hit worldwide, and still is to this day, with official Valve tournaments happening every few months each year with cash rewards up to a few million USD. In 2018, ELEAGUE Major CS:GO Tournament was watched by over a million people on the popular streaming platform Twitch.tv thus breaking the record for the most concurrent views on a single stream at the time.

The first CS:GO tournament at Your University!

We are proud to present our first official CS:GO tournament at Your University. The rules are simple, and the requirements even simpler.

We will have two competition formats:

  • 1 versus 1 Single Elimination (20 rounds)
  • 5 versus 5 Single Elimination (30 rounds)

In 1 versus 1 format of the tournament, there will be 8 players playing against a randomly selected opponent. You will be playing on a small map designed for not more than 2 players.

In 5 versus 5 however, we will follow the standard CS:GO tournament format of 16 teams. That means single elimination and 30 rounds on Valve’s official map bracket. Maps on which these matches will be played are selected randomly, as there will only be one match between the teams.

Requirements for entering the tournament are:

  • You must have your own setup (Keyboard, mouse, headset)
  • You must bring your own PC (Or have the University provide one for you)
  • For the 5 versus 5 formats, you bring your own team of 5 players, plus one replacement player (6 total)

You can sign up for the CS:GO tournament at event@sotongamesoc.com. Please add which format you are signing up for, your first and last name, and your (and your teammates) gamer tags.

Looking forward to seeing you, and best of luck!
