Discord Permission Form

11/02/2020

To help keep the E-Sports Club in the WHS's good graces, we'd like everyone in the E-Sports Club to have you and your parents sign the permission form in Discord and email it to Mr. Mulvaney. This will ensure that parents will be fine with their children using Discord for club communication and prevent the district from worrying about angry parents. If you have any questions or concerns, type them in #ask-questions or DM one of the managers. Keep playing strong!

Orientation Meeting Summary

9/26/2020

zoom meeting summary for people who missed it:

  • IMPORTANT: post the game you want to play in #role-requests within a week (even if you're already in a team) OR YOU WILL BE KICKED

  • The website is a secondary hub with announcements and upcoming events. This is for use by people without Discord

  • Captains are volunteer-based so that people who want to be a leader, and take on more responsibilities, can be captain

  • The main responsibilities of the captains are getting your fellow players organized for routine practice sessions, whether that be a ranked session, a scrim, a 1v1, anything really. It falls under the captain to keep the team at least somewhat consistently practicing and improving at their game, as well as organizing/leading all of the practices.

  • When teams are settled, captains and teams decide their own rules and practices.

  • Teams can look for competitions themselves, or reach out to managers. Amateur Discords are an option to keep an eye out for.

  • We want teams to get experience against other competitive people. This isn't really the place for casual players.

  • We want people to have one game so that they can focus on their team/game at the start. Later in the year, after people are settled into a team, we can open up second games

  • Managers will conduct monthly check-ins with captains to make sure teams and captains are practicing.

  • This is not the place for casual play. We want to get people into competition

Zoom Orientation Meeting

9/14/2020

The WHS e-sports club's Orientation Zoom Meeting will take place on Wednesday Sept. 23rd, at Noon. The link will be posted in the discord on the day of the meeting. In this meeting we will get the freshmen just joining us up to speed on what this club is all about, and describe the new management systems/changes from last year. If you cant make it, that's ok. We will post all the important bits in Discord and wherever else they should go (most likely club info as well). Our club, thankfully, is probably better off with it being only online. Do note that a lot of the members of the server are not active, and we will take action in the days after the meet to tidy up the server in order to get an accurate member count and an accurate games list.

 

TL;DR. Zoom meet on 9/23 12:00 pm, please show up.
