Smashfest 3, Presented by IKS Live!

SKL eSports is proud to announce Smashfest 3, presented by IKS Live! This Super Smash Bros event is a one-day Singles and Doubles tournament taking place June 2nd at the Turvey Centre in Regina, SK! The tournament will be for both Wii U AND Melee, with the SKL Smash Circuit being continued in the Wii U tournament.

Come watch the games live at the Turvey Centre, hang out in the Legacy Room to play retro games, mini-tournaments, or grab a snack at the concession and licensed bar. More details to come in the coming weeks!

Registration for the Second Recreational League has Opened!

The first split of the SKL League of Legends Rec League officially concluded a couple weeks ago, with Anything Deemed Inappropriate coming out victorious over White or Wong. We would like to offer our sincerest congratulations to both teams. Now, onto the next split!

Registration for the next Rec League split will be opening on February 6th! With that being said, there are a few changes we are going to make for this upcoming split. First of all, and most prominently, we will be splitting the league into two divisions: Competitive and Relaxed. This decision was made in order to ensure that everyone can still join the Rec League, while also improving league parity.

Competitive Division

Competitive will be geared towards higher ranked players looking for a more competitive atmosphere, while still maintaining the relaxed tone of the Rec League. The Competitive division will feature playoffs and a grand final at the end of the regular season.  We will also place more of an emphasis on streaming these matches. However, unlike last Rec League split, games in this division will be scheduled by SKL Admins based on pre-provided availability of teams. This division will also feature a to be determined prize pool. Team registration fees for this division will be $10 per player.

Relaxed Division

Relaxed will be geared more towards players who are just looking to chill and have a good time playing games with friends. There will be no prize pool for this division, and they will not be guaranteed streamed games. However, they will be guaranteed fun. The scheduling of games for this division during the week is up to the two teams. If a scheduled time cannot be agreed between two teams for that week, a scheduled time will be chosen by the SKL Admin Team for early the following week. Team registration fees for this division will be $4 per player.

Free agents will be put into a general pool and available to sub for either division, to ensure maximum availability of subs. Free agent registration is $5.

For the most part, the rest of the protocols from last season will remain in place. Teams will be matched up with another team once per week to play a best of two series. After a scheduled game time has been agreed upon by two teams, or before the SKL-scheduled game time, a tournament code can be generated in Battlefy for the match. However, it is important to not generate the tournament code too far ahead of time, as the generated codes expire after twenty-four hours. Battlefy will track all of the stats for the matches, as well as reporting the outcome of the match, through proper use of the tournament code.

As always, if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us through our Facebook page or on our Discord channel. And remember, let’s keep it light, fun, and recreational out there. 😊

Your closest friend,

Kevin “BigBooty” Bode
