Gravity Gaming, a manufacturer of custom-built gaming PCs in Moorhead, Minn., is proud to partner with Minnesota State University Moorhead to offer the region’s first “F-M Gravity Games” PC gaming tournaments on Sunday, Oct. 2, starting at noon.
F-M Gravity Games will feature a Super Smash Bros Melee Tournament and a League of Legends Tournament. It will be located at MSUM Nemzek Hall, and is a kick-off event for MSUM’s homecoming celebration. The event is open to the public, and all ages are welcome. The event will include spectator seating and concessions.
“MSUM is excited to kick off Homecoming 2016 with an event unlike any we’ve ever done before,” said MSUM assistant athletics director Jon Wepking. “Our efforts for this event are to engage a group typically left out of the Homecoming experience and connect them with others in the community with similar interests. We’re excited to bond our students with the community and are greatly appreciative to Gravity Gaming for their partnership in the event.”
The entry fee is $10 to enter Super Smash Bros Melee Tournament, or $50 per team (5 members) to enter League of Legends Tournament. There is a $500 cash prize for the LoL Tournament.
MSUM’s own pro-gamer Brandon “puCK” Qual will be a special guest at F-M Gravity Games, offering play-by-play announcements during the tournaments. Qual is one of America’s top Starcraft II gamers. His fame comes not only from his skill at Starcraft II, but also his presence on popular video game streaming platform Twitch. Thanks to approximately 15,000 Twitch followers, Qual has made a living of his gaming passion for more than five years.
F-M Gravity Games is sponsored by Gravity Gaming, ByteSpeed, Buffalo Wild Wings, Pepsi, and Games on the Plains. Gamers can register at: MSUMDragons.com/GravityGames.
