Check-In:Please arrive at the Schulich School of Engineering, ENA04, around 4-4:30pm so staff can check you in, and provide rules, and instructions.

Once the scores are reported, the next match will generate a GYO Match Lobby, which bunny5moon will let everyone know.

Changes to Valorant Tournament

Hello everyone

We have an announcement to make regarding the Esports Valorant Charity Tournament. Due to the positive response from all of you wishing to participate, it looks like we will need to modify the tournament a little bit.

Instead of trying to have all players participate on April 11th, which would make the tournament over 6 hours, we are going to create an online group staging. All group stage matches will be Best of One.

Here are the dates of the 3 matches: April 2nd, 3rd, and 7th.

The schedule for the group staging is not finalized yet. We will make an announcement once it's finished.

Rescheduling:

If you or your opponent cannot make it to the match, then do not worry. We are implementing a reschedule button for you to use till April 10 at Noon that will be available in your GYO Match lobby. The rescheduling request must be made, communicated, and ultimately processed entirely via the GYO platform in order to properly record the communication as proof for both teams. It's always important to communicate with your opponents, so please let them know. The tournament operators will be in the match lobby if you have any questions.

April 11th Playoff Tournament: We will take the Top 8 in the group stage to advance into the April 11th playoff tournament. Even if your team did not make the cut, be sure to join us and watch the action! Everyone will be receiving prizing and those that show up might receive a doorbuster gift. The top 3 teams will receive a prize pack.

Deadline: The deadline to make a payment will be moved to tomorrow, April 1st at Noon. If you have not paid by then, the team will not be able to participate.

Let us know on discord if you have any questions.

Best,

Hobogabbins
