Tomorrow's Event + Discord


Hope everyone is doing well. We wanted to officially announce when the Combine (formerly Crucible) will take place.

*drum roll*......

Thursday, Feb 3rd at 9 pm EST / 8 pm CST / 7 pm MST / 6 pm PST.

The Combine's objective is to be a bit of a Community Night where we will be able to answer any questions you might have, reveal each school's team jersey, and train players on how the platform works. Since most teams have already formed, we encourage you to squad up with your new teammates immediately following the Combine to get some practice reps in.

As mentioned in the previous announcement, Preseason will start the week of February 7th. We would like everyone to complete a survey concerning availability, so we have a better idea of what days/times might work best.


If you cannot attend the Combine on Feb 3rd, do not panic! Everyone will be participating in this season's conference play.
