Team Epidemic would like to proudly announce the first ever North American Tribes Ascend Combine, which will be held on Friday January 25th from 8 pm – 11 pm est. Now, you may ask what is a Tribes Combine? For those that are NFL fans, you are familiar with the NFL combine; well the Tribes Ascend Combine will work very similar. We will have a day where all interested free agents will have an opportunity to showcase their skills and tryout for teams that are looking to fill positions. The main goals of this event if to give free agents that are interested in competition the opportunity to meet and tryout for different teams, as well as helping teams recruit and fill open roster spots.
How will this work?
On the day of the event team representatives and players will join the dedicated mumble server. We want all team representatives to join the server wearing a clan tag, as well as post the positions they need to fill. For example, my name on the mumble server would be ePi.LL-BLU-J(Sent,LO,HO). If you are a free agent, then you would just join the server with the position/s you play, for example Trismgg(Cap,LO). From there, most games will be played pick-up style. We want to make sure a team representative that is recruiting is one of the pick-up captains. Once the representative has picked his team, he will have the option to either play alongside or observe the players that he is interested in. For those players that are new and never played pick-ups or any type of competition, we will also be having a session of Offense vs. Defense going to help teach players the rules and get them familiar on how competition is played. We will also have casters on board that will be showcasing this event. The casting will be a little different however, instead of putting primary focus on the teams, we will be focusing on the free agents, so even if you’re a team captain and can’t attend the event, you can watch the vods at any time, and scout potential new players.
Current Casters: Trismgg, Liongg, Helemar, and Remics.
Who Can Participate?
Players of all skill levels are invited to attend this event. There will be team captains in attendance that will be recruiting for both newbloods, as well as veteran players. We want everyone that has ever thought about playing competition to attend. We will have some of the top North American teams in attendance that will be available to answer questions, as well as give tips and advice. So, even if you have never played competition and have no idea how it works, we will have players on hand that will teach you and also give you an opportunity to play in a live competitive setting.
