Compete against heroes of your own caliber and advance up the leaderboard to win epic prizes!

Registration & Team Finding:

We’re looking for students of all skill levels across the United States and Canada to get involved and represent their schools. Students currently enrolled or who will be enrolled in the upcoming Fall semester are eligible to compete.

Once you’ve registered an account on Compete and verified your student status you can either create a new team, or join an existing open team from your school. If you don’t see any existing open teams from your school you can create one that will be displayed first to all other users from your school.

If your student email or school is new to our system, please allow up to 24 hours for them to be approved.

Registration will remain open for the entirety of the tournament. Only teams who are registered before the weekly matches are assigned will be eligible to play for that week.

Weekly Match Opt-in:

Teams will play in weekly match-made battles, with teams choosing to play zero or two matches. Every Sunday, we will ask teams to give us the number of matches they want to play that week. After every team has their desired amount of games, our internal match-making system will assign teams their opponents, who will be of equal skill or rank.
