Registration for the Spring 2018 season starting in January is now open and features Dota 2, Overwatch, League of Legends, and StarCraft II. Any employee who works 30+ hours/week can play for their company in Saturday matches.
For those new to the AHGL, we’re a modern twist on traditional corporate sports leagues like softball and basketball that encourages fun, teamwork, and friendly competition on the battlefields of top esports titles. Last season we donated $31,000 to charity on behalf of the winning teams. All skill levels are welcome and we do our best to keep matches evenly paired. Matches happen every Saturday and the first 7-8 weeks are non-elimination matches.
For AHGL veterans, here’s what’s new this year:
Spring and Fall Seasons
With so many top esport titles out there today we’ll now be running two season per year each with a different lineup of games. We’re expecting Fall 2018 to include Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm while Rocket League, CS:GO, PUBG and others are being considered.
It’s a voice and text chat for gamers that will be our communication hub going forward. Join our AHGL Discord server and say hi even if you don’t have a team! Find other players at your company using our custom bot command that lists you on the #looking-for-team digital notice board.
We’ve historically used custom tournament management software built into our website. This was expensive to maintain and the list of bugs and missing features grew substantially over the years. We’re excited to announce that AHGL is partnering with Battlefy, an esports tournament platform, to make tournament management easier for both players and admins.
Registration officially closes January 30th and make sure to start today since co-workers may be unavailable over the holidays! The first step is dropping us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or using the !lft command in Discord so that we can help you.
P.S. Emily and I have returned and the AHGL is back on solid ground! No more missed seasons are expected.
