Tomorrow Des Moines Gaming Club should finally be getting a new face lift with the installation of our signage on the front of the club. It has been about a month and a half in the works as it was one of the first things we started working on once we got moved in here to our new location. We’ll be sure to share pictures of it as soon as it is installed so stay tuned to our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages.

This past Saturday we hosted our first Bachelor party at the Club from 3pm-6pm and it went really well! I’d like to thank everyone that came in who was a part of that party because everyone was super nice and treated the club respectfully. It was really cool seeing the group have a great time for a special occasion here at DMGC and we can’t wait to host more events like that in the future. Remember, that you can rent out the entire club for any event. We have a club rental section on our website and if you have any questions about renting the club please feel to ask us via email at info@dsmgamingclub.com, you can message us on Facebook or Twitter, and of course, you can call us at 515-850-2197.

Let’s get into some esports industry news now. League of Legends Worlds continues into its second week and this is when the action starts to get really good and really interesting. Last week we saw the solidification of the groups with all of the play in games taking place. Yesterday started offiical group play and it continues today with Worlds being streamed live right now on Twitch & YouTube. Again to catch the schedule, view the groupds, and learn more about Worlds you can go to lolesports.com.

Funnily enough, League of Legends main competitor DOTA 2, is hosting it’s big year-end event right now as well. Called The International, DOTA 2’s worlds champions is into bracket play starting today having finished group play last week. This event is being played on LAN in Romania with no crowd. DOTA 2 is known for it’s prize money and this iteration of the International will have the largest prize pool ever for a single esports event at $40 million. You can watch the stream of this event on Twitch.

New game Splitgate has announced a Pro Series of it’s own with over $100,000 in prizing. The development of Splitgate sort of went under the radar but ever since it dropped it has got gamers talking with it’s extremely similar gameplay to that of Halo of course with the addition of portals that allow players to transport around the map making for some pretty remarkable plays. Competitive gameplay of Splitgate will likely be extremely fun to watch and of course, you can play Splitgate here at the Club if you haven’t already.

That’l do it for today’s update from the Club. Thank you so much for watching and I hope you have a great day!
