Rocket League at PAX West 2017

That’s right, Rocket League is heading back to one of our favorite gaming conventions of the year, PAX West!

First up, we are bringing the first PLAYABLE version of Rocket League on Nintendo Switch to Seattle! All weekend long, you can head to Nintendo’s booth #2121 on Level 4 of the WSCC (it’s next to the WB Games and Twitch booths) and play Soccar 'til your heart’s content (or until it’s someone else’s turn).

For the more competition-minded PAXers, we’re also back with TWO tournaments, and both are open to any badge-holding PAX West attendee. Our first tournament of the weekend is the 2v2 console tournament on PS4, happening in the Console Tournament area on Friday, September 1 from 8pm to 10pm PDT. The Console Tournament area is on Level 6 in the WSCC, right next to Console Freeplay.

PC players get their crack at PAX West glory, too, as we bring back the classic 3v3 tournament! The action goes from 12pm-2pm PDT on Saturday, September 2 in the Lenovo Legion PC Room, located on Level 3 in the WSCC Annex. Both Rocket League tournaments will have swag prizes for the top three teams!

But that’s not all! Rocket League will also have a presence on two panels over the course of the holiday weekend. On Sunday, September 3 at 6pm PDT in the Wyvern Theatre, our own Esports Program Specialist Cory Lanier is part of “We Caan Train You: A Guide to Winning Your First Tournament,” where he and other esports industry figures (and champions) will discuss what it takes to start a career in professional gaming. Last but not least, yours truly is back to talk about social media "do's and don'ts" as part of “The Audacity of #HYPE V: Social Media Strikes Back.” You can catch this PAX tradition on Sunday, September 3 at 3:30pm PDT in the Sasquatch Theatre.

We hope to see you in Seattle during Labor Day weekend, and we can’t wait to share Rocket League on Switch with the world!

I wish there were PAX events in the midwest somewhere...

so I wouldn't have to travel to TX or cross-country to either coast to play :laugh: Not many opportunities to play at amateur LAN events around here.

Is there a place to register for the tourney? Or is it just walk-in?
