The Fireside Open will be one of the biggest competitive intercollegiate BYOC LANs on the East Coast. The first winter event held by Rutgers Esports will be held at the Rutgers Student Center at Rutgers University, New Brunswick on December 4, 2016, where a diverse player base will compete for a day until champions are crowned in titles such as Smash, League of Legends, Starcraft II, Dota 2, Hearthstone, Overwatch, Pokemon, and CS:GO. On top of the many tournaments we will be holding at the event, there will also be an exhibition match: The League of Legends Club will face off against the Dota Club on Heroes of the Storm!
There will also be a BYOC area where people can bring whatever they want to play any game they want or even run their own tournaments. That being said, if you want to play, please bring any equipment you need like computers, controllers, keyboards, and mice as we cannot provide those things for everyone. Wireless access will be provided for friendlies, but ethernet connection will be limited to tournament use.
We’ve partnered with several incredible organizations, including Kite+Key, The Rutgers Tech Store, Vasculogic, TESPA, GUNNAR Optiks, Twitch, Logitech G, Discord, HyperX and Collegiate Starleague to bring this event to you guys. More partners might be announced so please stay tuned to get the latest updates! Many of these partners have given us items for giveaways. You can get the chance to be given these items by going to our partnerships booth, signing up as a Tespa Member. You can enter some giveaways by switching your Twitch account to a .edu account as well.
