“Welcome back to the TGS Patch Notes!
This month is a bit of a quieter one, as we move forward into quarter two. Although we are not hosting as many events this month due to outside bookings, we are moving our focus in the short-term towards our circuits! We’re introducing seasonal circuits, starting with the Spring Circuit, which will run from March to the end of April. To celebrate this, we are also including Rocket League into our list of circuit games! Make sure to check out the event pages for these events if you are interested in it.
Lastly, keep your eyes peeled for our featured events of the month, including our Intercollegiate Spring Social, Empowering Girls in Gaming, and the first ever Ting Open Series! Game on!”

- Wednesdays: Rocket League circuit, Overwatch, TFT circuit (UBCEA)
- Thursdays: Variety Days*
- Fridays: Fortnite circuit
- Saturdays: League of Legends

Upcoming Events at TGS
March 20th: Overwatch Intercollegiate Spring Social
Wind down before finals pick up with UBCEA, SFUEA, LCVE, LEA, and CEA for an Intercollegiate Overwatch Spring Social on Friday, March 20th at The Gaming Stadium!
We’ll be hosting a Guess the SR Challenge, a 1v1 Mystery Hero Lock-Out Elimination Bracket, and high and low SR LAN Inhouses! The event is completely free for all students who bring valid student ID, so grab a friend and come enjoy a night of Overwatch?
March 21st: Empowering Girls in Gaming
Back by popular demand, we’re HYPED to host our SECOND lady-centered event at TGS. Even though almost 50% of the gaming population are women, they are still very under-represented in esports. We’re looking to change that! ?
We host these events to encourage females in games and tech to come to the stadium, feel comfortable, and just have fun! The purpose of this is to empower and recognize female gamers in the local community in a safe, inclusive environment.
March 22nd: Ting Open Series featuring Rocket League
Still itching for more Rocket League goodness this month? ? We’ve got you covered with the Ting Open Series presented by Ting and Axeltoss! Compete for a chance at the $1500 prize pool, meet Axeltoss, aim to be the last team standing at TGS, and watch some great Rocket League action with the community!
