The time for another club meeting has arrived. Come join us to talk about the latest matches in games all across the eSports scene, bring a laptop to play a game or two with friends, discuss event ideas with an officer, or just stop by to hang out. People are welcome to bring table-top games as well. Most importantly, put a face on a virtual name and come together with the people that speak your language.
Our biannual club League tournament is once again making a comeback! Join us to compete against your fellow badgers on the Fields of Justice for Riot-sponsored prizes and glory.
Format is expected to be round robin followed by best of 5s for the round of 16. However, this will vary based on the number of teams that sign up.
Registration can be completed individually, in partial groups, or as a full team. Those who do not register as a full team will be matched up based on skill level.
Cost is $25 per team ($5 per person) to offset club expenses, supporting our ability to bring you all the best content possible.
Rules and just about all the information you will ever need to know about the tournament can be found here.
We are looking to kick off this semester by getting together, having a good time, and discussing how we can achieve the best possible experience for all members of the club. Our officers will share what we have planned and look for some feedback on what we could do to make the semester even better. You can find us in Union South at 7:00 PM.
Come join us at the Madison Esports Club viewing party for the League of Legends World Championships! The event will be held in the Humanities building, room 2650. The finals begin with the pregame show kicking off at 10:00 PM Central. There is no fee to attend this party, so feel free to come and bring a friend! We hope to see you all there!
Registration for UW eSports Fall Open is now available for all members! All you have to do is sign up on our Battlefy page
Players will be able to register premade teams, partial premades, and as individuals. Free agents and partial teams will be able to form a team themselves, or we can assign teams. That's right, you can make a team with anyone (as long as they are a UW student).
The deadline for registration is October 9th. Once a team is locked in, a registration fee of 5 dollars will go towards prizes and administrative costs (room reservations, server upkeep, etc.).
Our format is very similar to the World Finals/OGN. Every team is guaranteed a healthy number of games in our round robin group stage, and the top performers will move on to the bracket stage for a chance to win prizes from both the club and hopefully Riot!
Group stage matches will be scheduled very flexibly at the convenience of participating teams! If you can play two games of LoL a week, then that's all you need. The exact weeks/dates for bracket stages will be determined by the number of teams that sign up.
A full copy of the rules can be found in the link above. Rules will be locked by the close of registration, so leave feedback by then.
We are looking for 12 to 16 teams, so rally your friends together to compete!
Welcome back to all returning members and hello to all of the new. We hope you can all join us for tournaments, watch parties, LANs, and other events that we have planned for the upcoming semester. Our expanding portfolio of games include hits like League of Legends, Starcraft 2, DotA 2, Counter Strike, Diablo III and there is always room for more!

My goal was to raise just $100 (we've surpassed that :D), so any little help you could give would be appreciated! You can support this and donate at Extra-Life I will be streaming myself playing at Twitch.TV
Anybody that wants to play with me on this day can join the team at Extra-Life.Org . The more viewers we have, the more hype this event gets, and hopefully more donations the hospitals will receive! Click bellow for more info and discussion!More on reddit!
The eSports Club Fall Starcraft 2 Tournament will be held over the next couple months. The format will be different from years past to try and curb the problems we've been having with the number of "no-shows," forfeits, and thrown games. Hopefully we'll have a fantastic turnout and have everyone in the club participate.
This tournament is meant for ALL skill levels. There will be prizes for the top finishers and will culminate in a live event; however, even if you have never played before you are still encouraged to play!
It's time for the first official meeting of the year, to be held at Union South on Thursday, September 20th.
