This tournament is one of the biggest gaming events in the history of the University of Illinois, and many of you are probably excited for it. However, you may think that you’re not good enough, or you’re not sure if you like your group of friends enough to play with them in a tournament setting. For those people, let me have a chance to convince you:
Firstly, the amount of money given out in prizes increases nonlinearly with the number of teams. This means that only a flat amount of money will be taken from the prize pool as administrative fees; the rest goes to prize pools. In this way, doubling the number of teams will more than double the prize pool.
Secondly, teams that finish the tournament without dropping out will have “dibs” on the Riot swag that we’re giving out at the finals. In the later rounds of a Swiss system tournament, the bottom few teams will end up with almost no chance of winning any prizes. However, we still want to encourage these teams to finish, so we are providing this incentive. However, to be eligible for this incentive, you have to actually play.
Thirdly, we are looking to break a record for the largest League of Legends tournament at a single college. If we break this record, I promise to run another social event beyond the ones that are already associated with this tournament. This would be more cool action, and more free Riot stuff.
Fourthly, and most importantly, a tournament is a great way to have fun with your friends. Even if you have no chance of winning, I promise that you will have a great experience. In addition, summoners of the Social Gaming Club will cast every single game (from replays) that is given to us; I will do it all myself if I have to.
