Introducing New Leaf eSports: a 2v2 FFA supported by MarioKartCentral | September 7, 2019


Founding Member

This 2v2 FFA will be entirely hosted on Discord. Rooms and results will be posted in the New Leaf eSports Discord server. Link for the New Leaf eSports Discord: https://discord.gg/ACXDnhg

Welcome to this 2v2 FFA tournament, run by New Leaf eSports and thankfully supported by MarioKartCentral. We're running this tournament both to celebrate an official launch of our brand and also of our website, which will be released on the day of the tournament! We hope that everyone enjoys checking it out, seeing the progress we've made and spreading the word for future events. We aim to host LAN events primarily in the UK, following on from Embrace the Change, our first tournament, that ran in early June this year. We also hope to occasionally run online tournaments such as this to commemorate important landmarks in our brands growth. Money we raise will be poured back into the tournaments we run, meaning bigger venues, better prizes and more pizza for everyone involved. We also aim to donate some profit to Mind UK, a charity supporting those who suffer from mental health conditions in the UK. This tournament will be organised entirely on Discord meaning that at least one player per team will need to join the New Leaf eSports server. We'll be giving out roles for the FFA to people who have signed up for the event. See you on the track!

Este 2v2 FFA estará completamente alojado en Discord. Las salas y los resultados se publicarán en el servidor de Discord New Leaf eSports. Link para el Discord: https://discord.gg/ACXDnhg

Bienvenido a este torneo 2v2 FFA organizado por New Leaf eSports y apoyado por MarioKartCentral. Estamos organizado este torneo para celebrar el lanzamiento oficial de nuestra marca y también de nuestro sitio web, que se lanzará el día del torneo. Esperamos que todos disfruten ver el progreso que hemos hecho y que se corra la voz para futuros eventos. Nuestro objetivo es organizar eventos LAN principalmente en Inglaterra, siguiendo nuestro torneo anterior y primer, "Embrace the Change", que organizamos en junio de 2019. También esperamos realizar ocasionalmente torneos en línea como este para celebrar hitos importantes en el crecimiento de nuestra marca. El dinero que recaudamos se invertirá en los torneos que organizamos, lo que significa lugares más grandes, mejores premios y más pizza para todos. También esperamos donar algunas ganancias a Mind UK, una organización benéfica que apoya a quienes padecen problemas de salud mental en el Reino Unido. Este torneo estará completamente alojado en Discord, lo que significa que al menos un jugador por equipo estará necesita unirse al servidor de New Leaf eSports. Daremos roles para la FFA a las personas que se han registrado para el evento. ¡Vamos!

Yeah, it's really wonderful how the community is slowly evolving to become more than locking ourselves away in our rooms once a week for MKU. Maybe we'll eventually be taken seriously as a gaming community if we have more events like the SmashCon mini-tournament and EtC. It's taken years honestly and should have happened sooner, but the nature of the community really has halted progress.

Registration is open so if you'd like to enter for the opportunity to get some money off whatever game you're looking to get next on Switch, sign up.
