August Gaming News and Updates

Since the Great Jedi War was delayed, the FIST staff has been creating as much content as we can for the members of the DJB. Drac is running and Flash Tournament, I’m running a HotS tournament, Uji is running a batch of Destiny comps and Juna is running comps in Overwatch and Battlefront. It’s our pleasure to bring you content for you to enjoy and participate in.

Although one of the most popular question/complaints we get is why do all the gaming comps have to be run by the FIST staff? Well, they don’t, in fact, let me remind you to reread Drac’s 8th Report. Specifically the section about gaming comps, but the jist of it is this. We in the FIST office welcome and want to see more member created comps, you can run them for your BT, House, Clan or even DJB wide.

For DJB wide competition you will be more than welcome to advertise your comps in DB gaming and feel free to use the new discord voice server to communicate with others playing for the competition. If we are able to, we might even promote your comp in one of our reports as well.

So if you have a new or cool idea you want to run as a gaming comp then, by all means, go for it. Just make sure you follow FIST and MAA guidelines and you should be fine. Also if you have any questions feel free to email the FIST staff using the FIST email address listed at the end of this report.

** Also one more time here is a friendly reminder from the FIST Staff ** - Please make sure you update your dossiers to include ALL of your gamer ID’s (i.e. PSN ID, Steam ID, XBox Gamertag, Force Arena and so on). Submissions have been and will be delayed if one member is missing their info. So please double check to make sure it’s listed and if you're playing with a new member please help them edit their dossiers correctly.
