Hello Mockit Headz,
Today we announce our first Vegas LAN tournament in conjunction with the Downtown Grand Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. This process took a few weeks but the Downtown Grand has carved out space for us on the casino floor and made an eSports Lounge.
Tonight’s broadcast will be on Twitch at www.twitch.tv/mockitleague
This event is only open to people who are 18 and above for now. Nevada Gaming Commission regulations stipulate this, but updates will be forth coming.
Our inaugural event will be a $250 Prize in a 1v1 tournament setting in person at the downtown grand. We will be streaming the event live also. The event will start at 8pm PST.
We will be commencing regularly scheduled LANs with a soon to come Championship LAN announcement coming in May.
Stay tuned and good luck!
Luckey here. Figured I would fill everyone in on our goal at Mockit.
In general, we love the community we have built. Many folks love what we do, and it is because of YOU that we do this. Everyone at Mockit all has the same mentality of, “Give the people what they want!” Basically, we feel people want a few things. In order of importance:
- A great community to play with. This is why we have our discord server. It seems many people love it. We are one of the top 20 discord servers in the world for overall people, and during tournaments we are generally #1 in the world for activity. This is amazing. Check out this chart from one of the guys who helps make Mockit happen, Matt.
- They want to also see pros play on a regular basis. We do this by offering amazing prize pools and competitive game play with a stage for all to watch, i.e. our Twitch Stream.
- Dank Memes.
We will have a few more posts coming out to show what we can do regarding the summer. Exciting times here at Mockit!
Hey guys! I’m Low5ive.
You might know me from my own stream on Twitch; my previous title as “that guy on the homepage;” or from the occasional appearances in Rocket Royale, RLCPL, or Mock-it tournaments. Now, I play Rocket League for Mock-it eSports alongside Rizzo and Insolences.
The Low Down:
I’ve been sitting on some Rocket League replays waiting for that special someone to come along and edit, but I’ve decided to release them in a public contest! There are 51 clips in total that date all the way back to October, so not all of them are A+ material. It’s a lot to go through and you might consider a fair number of them to be not so great, but I want to leave a wide selection so that the videos you all put together have plenty of variety. I’d recommend going through them in order of newest to oldest (I’ll attach an appropriately sorted image below).
What’s in it for you?
The best video, judged by myself and a few others, will receive $100USD and the opportunity to edit a “teamtage” for our team, Mock-it eSports. I’ll also feature the winning video on my YouTube channel and hype you up on Twitch.
The next two runner-ups will also have the chance to edit the “teamtage.”
- 1st: $100USD, exposure, “teamtage” entry
- 2nd: Teamtage entry
- 3rd: Teamtage entry
The three best submissions for the “Low5ive” video will have the opportunity to piece together a video for Mock-it including Rizzo, Insolences, and myself. These clips are already in order and they’re WAY cooler.
The best video from this selection will receive another $100USD and the chance to join the Mock-it Creative Team as a paid part-time position.
- Winner: $100USD and a chance for a paid part-time job as a Creative Team member.
I’ve set the end date for “Phase 1” at March 24th. There is no video length requirement. Email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m stoked to see what you guys come up with.
Spread the word!
You have until March 24th to submit your videos to email@example.com.
