The University of Victoria has been selected as a candidate to take part in a technology trial for a product that purports to help reduce ping and make remote play fair by balancing latency between users. They are looking for us to put together two teams - one for League of Legends, one for Splitgate - to participate in a six week league. All players who participate will receive custom jerseys (design coming soon). If you're interested, or if you have any questions, please message @[GYO] hobogabbins (hobogabbins#3265) or an admin on the Vikes Esports Association Discord.
Deadline to sign up is October 8th!
Do you ever find yourself yearning for simpler times, for the days when you would go online to play browser games with your friends? Then join us for some classic arcade-style 1v1 Tetris fun on Friday, May 28th at 5:00PM PDT. Apply critical thought and unparalleled tile-matching efficiency under pressure in our Thunder Closes In Tetris event, hosted on Jstris (a Tetris site) and supported by the UVic Bookstore. This free-to-play browser game features not only the authentic Tetris gameplay we all know and love, but also the ability to punish opponents by giving them lines to deal with The top three players will win $50, $30, and $20 in UVic Bookstore gift cards!

Games will be standard mode with classic settings: memoryless randomizer, 1 preview, no Hold, T-Spins + Combos + PCs not rewarded, back-to-back enabled, garbage canceling but no blocking, 70% garbage messiness. Primary means of attack should be Tetrises (well on the wall) and downstack Doubles
