(Dec 5 ’14) Smash Tournament: ARCADIAN, Clarendon, VA: D.C. eSports


Facebook event page here:

Hey all! I’m proud to announce that DC eSports and I will be hosting the first ever Arcadian tournament in the DMV area. For this tournament, our ranked players will be stepping aside to make way for new players and rising stars to battle it up for the title! If you are a new player, this is an amazing opportunity to gain experience!

All current and previously ranked players (up to top-20), both in and out of state, will be ineligible to participate in the bracket. A list of ineligible in-state players will be made available in advance. Any out of state players who wish to attend MUST contact the TOs in advance to confirm eligibility. The current rankings are viewable here: http://i.imgur.com/ey97qKz.jpg

Ranked players are still encouraged to come for happy hour and then stay to spectate, play casuals to help new players, and cheer on the participants. As incentive for ranked players to come, if you show up before 9 pm your first drink will be provided complementary of DC eSports.

We ask that ranked players please do not use the stream setup for casuals.
