Update: The live stream of FallCraft will go live at 2PM. Join us for all the action from the Game Center! http://www.twitch.tv/cstarleague
The NYU Game Center, in partnership with the Collegiate Star League (CSL), is happy to announce FallCraft, a series of StarCraft 2 exhibition matches between some of the best college players from New York and New Jersey, to be held at NYU Game Center on October 1st, starting at 2pm.
Already one of the biggest and most exciting eSports in the world, StarCraft 2 is also one of the more important games to be released in the last few years. A game of quick thinking and quick reflexes, StarCraft 2 exemplifies the qualities often associated with more traditional sports and tournament level games, such as strategic thinking, decisive action under pressure, sportsmanship, impressive physical ability, and last but not least, exciting performances in front of millions of spectators. Join us at NYU on Saturday, October 1st, for a series of six matches that will demonstrate these and other qualities of this fast growing game, played between the NYU Collegiate Star League team, captained by Kevin Zhou, against some of the best players from Princeton and Rutgers. During the intermission there will also be a lecture given by Director of the Game Center, Frank Lantz, on the place of eSports in the wider sports tradition as well as about the mission and purpose of the NYU Game Center.
During the intermission there will be a conversation about the place of eSports in the wider sports tradition between Game Center Director Frank Lantz and Henry Lowood, Curator for History of Science and Technology Collection at Stanford University.
RSVP for the event through our event form: FallCraft RSVP.
Refreshments will be served!
The Game Center would like to thank Blizzard Entertainment for their generous support of FallCraft.
