We’re Taking Gaming UP a Level

Are you ready to take your gaming skills UP a level? We are. At Extreme Connect Virtual, we are bringing the arcade to you.

Level UP Arcade is an esports event that will follow each day of sessions during our virtual event. From 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. EST on September 16 and 17, Connect attendees can register to play in or spectate during a rotating arcade schedule of matches – in games including Overwatch, Fortnite, Valorant, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and Rocket League– onthe Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC)’s Twitch channel, ecac_esports, or on the esportsUnetworkTwitch channel.

Arcade matches will feature guest appearances by pro gamers including Danteh, LiNkzr, Crashies, and Joke; professional esports casters including William, Pepper PhD, Jordan, and casting duo Robbie and Winston of the Houston Outlaws; and NFL-turned-esports players Ahman Green, Shane Vereen, and Brock Vereen. Participants will also have the chance to win prizes, including autographed memorabilia and a Nintendo Switch.

In the final qualifier matches, preliminary match winners will play for prizes on squads alongside featured professional gamers. Other than registered Connect attendees, participants will include over 4,000 esports players from leagues including the North America Scholastic Esports Federation, High School Esports League, ECAC, and the National Junior College Athletic Association.

Several of Extreme’s partners were involved in organizing the Level UP Arcade, including the Collegiate Sports Management Group, ESTV, Rocket Reel, ECAC, SUNY Canton, and Generation Esports.

Extreme Connect Virtual is a two-day summit taking place on September 16 and 17, featuring IT strategy sessions and practical workshops that will demonstrate how to drive transformation through network operations and create an effortless networking experience. Register for free to attend.
