Tuesday Telecast March 15th, 2022

Good Afternoon folks and welcome back to another Tuesday Telecast from Des Moines Gaming Club. Want to start off today by giving a big shout out and thank you to Ethan who has been helping out a bunch at the Club recently as I’ve been away doing various things. Ever since he learned of DMGC he’s been super interested and super helpful and we wouldn’t be where we are today without your help so thnaks man!

Moving on, we are going to have a regular schedule of events ahead of this week until Sunday that is. Casual play is open today-Thursday 1pm-10pm, Friday & Saturday 1pm-11pm, and then it will be closed on Sunday due to our first ever B-Side FGC tournament the details of which I’ll get to shortly. Our weekly tournament schedule is FGC wednesday night at 7pm with tournaments in Guilty Gear Strive and King of Fighters 15 with plenty of friendly matches to go around. Thursday at 6:30pm is Smash Bros. with squad strike and singles to follow around 7pm. Friday night is FIFA 22 and then no Rocket League on Sunday because of the B-Side FGC tournament! 

This tournament will start at 12:30 on Sunday with tournaments in Dragonball FighterZ and Vampire Savior and then at 2pm will be tournaments in Soul Caliber VI and King of Fighters 15. It is $7 for the venue fee and $5 for the pot per tournament. There will $40 of total pot bonus given out by DMGC as well. I also believe there will be a side tournament or two ran by members of the FGC. Can’t wait to see you there for it and I’m excited to get even more fighting games some limeleight here at the Club. You can sign up online at our smashgg page or you can even sign up in person the day of as long as you get here before the tournaments start.

That’l do it for updates from the Club, now we’ll move on to a bit of esports industry news. The first major of the Call of the Duty League season happened two weekends ago in Dallas. It was OpTic Texas’s home major and they sure showed up for their own event winning it in style and defeating reigning champs Atlanta FaZe twice once in winner’s and then again in the Grand Finals. OpTic fans, who are renown worldwide for their fanaticism, were particularly loud with their support of their team. It was pretty fun to witness an esport event give such homefield advantage to it’s team. 

The next Call of Duty major is coming up and it’s being held not even three hours away from Des Moines! It’s the Minnesota Rokkr home Major and it’s being held at Mystic Lake which is located in Lake Prior, just south of Minneapolis. I personally attended the first-ever CDL major which was held at the Armory downtown Minneapolis and it was an absolutely great event so I know the Rokkr and Version1 are going to knock this event out of the park as well. It’s being held March 31st, through April 3rd and you can buy tickets at version1.gg.

And that will condlue this week’s Tuesday Telecast. Thanks so much for watching and we’ll see you next week!
