The PSU E-Sports Club had a busy fall semester! Over 150 members have registered with the club, and have been eager to show their e-sports passion. We started the Fall '14 semester with a recruitment fair. We had over 100 people stop by our booth, with 70 people signing up to receive more information on the club. It was very exciting to have new students coming out the to fair just to meet with us! We followed the fair up with a cosplay competition and two viewing parties. The Cosplay event boasted many great costumes, but Rudyj2112 won the popular vote with his "Pool Party Lee Sin," netting himself a pair of Gunnars. Our League of Legends division hosted a World Championship party that boasted 60 members in attendance. The LoL event had multiple competitions, including Champion Voice Impressions, Guess the KDA, and a Make a Pun like Phreak competition. The Warwick and Graves impressions were good enough to get confused with the real voice acting! The jokes and puns from our Make a Pun like Phreak competition were as cringe-worthy as you would expect. Winners of the competitions won TeSPA bracelets, TeSPA lanyards, Riot lanyards, and LoL skin codes. The Starcraft and Hearthstone divisions hosted a Blizzcon viewing party that had 45 members in attendance. The group watched Firebat take the Hearthstone Champs, and stayed to watch the Starcraft finals. The party had a Create a Card competition and various door prizes! Some notable card designs included: "Oprah Winfrey" (Legendary rarity of course), "Noticed by Senpai," and "The Nittany Lion" (which was really overpowered). Winners received various Funko figures, a World of Warcraft art book, some Hearthstone shirts and bracelets, and TeSPA bracelets and lanyards. Overall, we had a great social time with some quality competition mixed in!
Lots of proud winners from our competitions and drawings! Thanks to our event sponsors: TeSPA, Blizzard Entertainment, Twitch, Riot Games, Gunnar Optiks, and Pennsylvania State University! We were very happy to be able to give our a pair of Gunnars, a World of Warcraft art book, LoL lanyards and skin codes, TeSPA bracelets and lanyards, and a few Funko Starcraft figures!
