2k/madden tournaments at nicholls state

00:36:19Aaron Brooks

I spoke with our eSports Director here at Akron and he suggested specific games for specific platforms

00:36:24Alex Kissinger

we’re using xbox and ps4 and sticking to sport games such as madden, nhl, fifa, and nba 2k

00:36:48Ashley Lax

we are running FIFA and setting up divisions as platforms

00:36:51Nashid Bracy

for those sports games, how are you organizing such?

00:36:53Andrew Lutz

BC is doing PS4 & Xbox for Madden, NBA 2K, FIFA, NHL

00:36:53Zach Ellender

cross platform for call of duty

00:36:55Alyssa O'Keefe

Does anyone use eSports platforms that record scores automatically for participants or are most manually entering in a system like IMLeagues to track?

00:36:59Jerrell Kelly

We're primarily doing sport games but also branching out to Apex Legends and Rocket League, as well as with our eSports club doing Hearthstone

00:37:03Eric Vaughn

We are offering Running league, Esports, Kahoot Trivia

00:37:05Steven Walton - Creighton

FIFA, NBA 2K, Rocket League, and Fortnite. Sport games will be done by platform.

00:37:18James Harris

We are working with our ESports club to organize tournaments/Leagues rules and such.

00:37:25Jordan Hunter

UCI is partnering with our eSports arena by putting on multiple games on different platforms such as PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch

00:37:28Michael Pappan

Currently use Mission Control to manage all divisions

00:37:29Aaron Brooks

His recommendations are PS4: FIFA/ xbox: 2K/ Switch: Smash Bros

00:37:45Jami Brossette

Louisiana is actually running state-wide Esports Leagues through Mission Control

00:37:46Anna Bruning

Oregon State doing Fortnite Fridays

00:37:49Jake Wells

we are hoping to livestream the events through twitch using OBS. So we get viewers and participants. We can "host" people on our channel if they already are familiar with streaming

00:37:57Travis Liu

Stony Brook - esports (FIFA and 2K with platform divisions) League of Legends, online trivia, sport movie brackets on IG

00:38:06Shane Ferrara

Has anyone come across problems with hate speech or profanity in the e sport realm? If so how does your University deal with that?

00:38:15Anna Bruning

We are getting ready to deal with that ^

00:38:21Colin Allison

How is everyone managing sportsmanship during games?

00:38:22Trevor Brunet

A&M-San Antonio APEX and Call of Duty

00:38:43Shane Ferrara

Perfect, thanks!

00:38:46Sean Haggerty is a good platform traditionally used for fighting games like Smash Bros, Tekken, Street Fighter, Etc

00:38:54Jake Wells

we do not allow them to talk verbally, but they can in the chat. It bans language that you set as "unsportsmanlike"

00:39:12Mitch Wiltbank

Anyone figure out how to create a private server for Fortnite tournaments? Apparently Epic has made it harder to host your own tournament.

00:39:20Mike Dickinson

I think it is important to educate players on how to edit their communication settings while playing so that they can mute opponents since we can't listen in ourselves

00:39:25Ashley Lax

I heard Geex will help with fortnite tournaments

00:39:33Maria Tonry

Anyone using battlefy?

00:39:39Greg Durham

Contact EPIC and become a creator

00:39:41Kelsey Jones

Ole Miss is, Maria

00:39:51Gabby Sokol

Using Battlefy at Ole Miss

00:39:52Aaron Brooks

We at Akron have our very own server specifically for Fortnite that we are getting ready to use for IM’s

00:40:12Mike Berdowski

You need to have someone with a high number of followers on your own social media. Then you can host your own through your own server. We use a student on our club Esports team when we want to host an event like that.

00:40:16Kirsten Schumacher

Anyone playing Jack Box with staff or participants?

00:41:08lauren Hoffman

we do not allow any first person shooter games

00:41:15Mike Berdowski

Pretty much, they are adults and they should know the difference between right and wrong

00:41:16Andrew Lutz

Not allowed to do first person shooter games for BC either

00:41:16Travis Liu

What platform is everyone using to get the message out to potential participants? Since no one is on campus it seems harder to get engagement

00:41:17Jacob Walker

No restrictions as of yet

00:41:17Colin Allison

Santa Clara is a jesuit university, so been told no shooting or violence

00:41:17Adam Walsh

we don't allow first person shooter

00:41:19Corbin Hedges

we have avoided those games thus far.

00:41:21Ashley Lax

i haven't asked... we are going to start without any shooter games and maybe explore in the future

00:41:21Jessica Coleman

We are avoiding those games right now. We are sticking to sports

00:41:23Alex Kissinger

no shooter games at soju either

00:41:24Travis Lankford

we are not worrying about it. students are already playing these games, so we are letting them play

00:41:27Alex Kissinger


00:41:27Logan Kahler

UNL doesn’t allow any first person shooters either

00:41:28Jason Darby

Our college club teams play COD and Rainbow 6, so we get saved from having to touch that realm

00:41:28Clint Jones

As long as 50% of our esports are non-violent we will allow them.

00:41:31Shana Kessler

no shooter games

00:41:33Alison Fisher

Regina, Canada, We are not allowed first person shooter

00:41:35Sean Haggerty

We allow any game to be played in our Union

00:41:36Shan Paracka

nothing rated M or higher

00:41:54Mike Wozniak

We allow them, we feel that it would be a good idea to have these people connect with others at the university, rather then remain distant and play them anyway.

00:41:55Jarrode Davis

We already have an eSports program on campus - so the university standard has been set.

00:42:01Amy Rask

Univ of Denver - letting eSports club across campus do shooter games. IMs are focusing on sport-related ones

00:42:04Jordan Hunter

Allowing Overwatch because it features female characters which is a big pillar of our esports values

00:42:17Matthew Nuesell

How is everyone handling settings for specific sports games? Length of game, camera view, etc...

00:42:19Clint Jones

that is coming from a combined varsity and club program

00:42:21Jacob Walker

Some rules that we have developed for our esports programs including sportsmanship rules.

00:42:52Tre Talton

do you break esports participation by skill level or all free for all?

00:42:59Cameron Milam

We at UNT don't worry about anything. We schedule brackets for Counter Strike, Call of Duty and Rainbow Six Seige. Most people are already playing them anyway so in our minds they should be able to play in a tournament just like anything else

00:43:01Tori Landron


00:43:37Jay McKendall

At Wyoming. We have created a social league and competitive

00:43:43Aaron Brooks

We have an actual varsity eSports team who are not permitted to participate

00:43:48Michael Pappan

SDState breaks skill level on bigger titles i.e. Rocket League and Super Smash Bros.

00:43:53Jacob Walker

Limited to one club player from that club team. I.e. one player from the esports League of Legends team on a League of LEgends team. Very similar policy to other intramural programs

00:44:06Kevin Linker

Same with us Cameron at UNT

00:44:49Tom Giles

Is anyone streaming their online IM's?

00:44:50Jerrell Kelly

We treat it the same and limit the participants if its a team sport

00:45:02Shane Ferrara

Does anyone have a process in place for/against participants streaming Intramural contests?

00:45:11Jake Wells

we have our first livestream event tomorrow

00:45:12Shaneisha Weir

Free for all. E-sports also us to create an inclusive environment.

00:45:21Shaneisha Weir


00:45:53Travis Liu

What platform is everyone using to get the message out to potential participants? Since no one is on campus it seems harder to get engagement and views

00:46:00Shaneisha Weir

we tried streaming on mixer it hasn't been that successful.

00:46:29Tina Mascaro

I'm preparing some virtual events for next week but I'm curious if anyone has tried anything yet other than esports and if students are actually participating.

00:46:33Sean Haggerty

How are schools communicating with esports participants and keeping them updated on the programs?

00:46:44Shana Kessler

we’re using IMLeagues announcements and messaging in addition to social media posts to inform about our digital events

00:46:48Gabby Sokol

twitch is a great streaming service for esports

00:46:50Tom Giles

Discord has by far the most successful for us

00:46:51Aaron Brooks

We are going to set it up via IMLeagues and then allow them to play offline and then report who wins

00:46:55Jake Wells

we use OBS to stream via twitch, facebook, and youtube. You can livestream to multiple platforms via OBS. We created an event on facebook and invited people. This will be a trivia night.

00:47:01Jason Darby

Mixer on Xbox is free

00:47:12Ashley Lax

we are communicating through IMLeagues and social media. social media is all students have right now...

00:47:18Mike Wozniak

Geex has a good design where you can play round robin, then it can automatically split the groups based on their win-loss record for another season.

00:47:20Mikayla Nawojczyk

SNHU uses Discord as well for our Esports team, so we are trying to push our participants that way for info

00:47:21Cameron Milam

for most of our individual events we are looking at doing ladder scheduling so that they are playing people with a similar record as them

00:47:24Shana Kessler

we set up a discord server for our students to connect on as well

00:47:28Jacob Walker

We use a google form for players to submit scores and it makes them upload a screen shot of the final score

00:47:42Jake Wells

you can also livestream from xbox to your pc to stream online if you have windows 10. PS4 is a little more difficult

00:47:48Paul Goobic

We’re having players send screenshot of final score to IM email so student employees can administer the league.

00:47:50Tyler Artley

I have been using IMLeagues and Fusion for campus wide announcements but we are creating a discord for the eSports participants and will be using that for posting scores and daily discussions

00:47:52Jake Wells

00:49:40Jarrode Davis

Don't forget to share your esports marketing materials with your Student Org office - there may be students in your university community who are not on IMLeagues (therefore not getting your IMLeagues emails)

00:49:40Shaneisha Weir

Can you elaborate more on virtual tournaments.

00:52:42Andrew Havrisko

Just got off a webex call with our IM staff - purely for social connectedness as they missed seeing one another. Nothing paid by us, they just miss being around one another.

00:52:57Adam Walsh


00:53:03Trevor Brunet

Have to do a reflection

00:53:06LaToya Burdiss

We took the average hours of each students worked for the last 9 weeks, and that’s what they will be paid each week. The hours will not be tracked.

WE will be doing zoom calls w/ officials do to some small trainings and education

00:54:52Ashley Lax

we are paying students for the next two pay periods (4 weeks). every student is getting paid $130/week as an average, no matter what position or hours they worked or were scheduled

00:54:54Jake Wells

is anybody considering getting their staff certified in high school sports? Pay for their certification instead of paying them for working hours for attending the training?

00:54:59Gabby Sokol

At Ole Miss prior to everyone being sent home we did online training modules for our staff for sport training (now we cannot ask students to work per university) and we followed up by making sure they were completed a google quiz. They had to get 100% for it to be counted and paid. Again - all of this was prior to COVID-19, because right now we cannot have students working. I'd be happy to share our method

00:55:07Scott Harrison

Funding was frozen, only students who are interested in volunteering will be working on special assignment, no required training unless they allow us to begin paying our students

00:55:56Jessica Coleman

NFHS put out some of their sport trainings for free. Our officials and supervisors will get paid if they complete those trainings.

00:56:35Jarrode Davis

love that idea Jessica!

00:56:40Kareem Bland

Jessica how many hours are you paying them per training?

00:56:51Tina Mascaro

@Jake Wells - that's an awesome idea. I'm going to talk to my staff about it and see if any of them are interested in getting certified for high school or youth sports.

00:58:25Jessica Coleman

We are going through the training to assess how long they will take. We have given them an allotted amount of professional development training that they can claim per week.

We have our own social media but department/university is filtering what is posted right now

01:06:08Jake Wells

we are allowed to directly engage with the students and promote our own things, but we are talking about collaborating with our Student Involvement office to offer events everyday for multiple hours

01:06:15Tina Mascaro

Intramurals has it's own social media platforms but everything goes through our University Relations Department and they send it out to the students through various social media platforms. University Relations controls how much info goes out so the kids don't get hundreds of individual emails.

01:06:18Matt Dunigan

Only marketing department at UCR

01:06:20LaToya Burdiss

We have direct control. We created a shared calendar with our team and we have a rec department.

Scott thought you would like that

01:15:49Jerrell Kelly

When we set up our meetings, we made sure to provide guidelines for how to use the meetings (audio muted unless speaking, etc) and I think a big part is being able to be the meeting host ensuring that we're helping them when maybe its been forgotten or missed

Some of these might be specific to Fairmont State but here's where our IT put all our remote resources:

01:20:21Easton Henrikson

Is the virtual waiting room through zoom or another platform?
