It’s with great honor and excitement we make this announcement that Confident Gamers is an official sponsor of the amateurs only esports competition league IGNITE.
The Game Gym along with Stevenson University Esports, yesterday during a Twitch stream, unveiled their upcoming venture, IGNITE. IGNITE is a live, amateurs only esports competition featuring League of Legends and Overwatch. The focus of IGNITE, is to showcase the amateur talent we have here in the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) area while offering young players the esports competetion experience seen in the esports arenas while promoting a healthy gaming habits.
IGNITE is open to gamers ages 10-18. Competitors can sign up as a team, a group, or an individual. If you are by yourself, fear not, you’ll be paired up with a team and each team will have their own coach from either the Game Gym or Stevenson University and time to practice. During the month before the competition, teams will work with their coaches to develop strategies and discuss competition preparation. On competition day, teams will arrive, coaches will lead warm up, and we will light this fire.
