A New Take On Competitive Gaming

Mid Tier Summit recently hosted the College Pro Tour. Gigamax Games was on location and spoke with both competitors and the driven individuals behind this eSports organization. It was amazing to learn about the gamers taking part in the tournament and the people that founded Mid Tier Summit.

Organizations like MT Summit are the embodiment of what can happen when gamers come together to accomplish a goal. Turning that idea or dream into something bigger is possible, no matter where someone is from or what they’re doing today. Gigamax Games sat down with many of the founding members to learn more about how this company was brought into existence and what was the driving force behind it all.

Interviews and New Friends

Gigs and Mack caught up with Chris, the CFO for MT Summit and wanted to see what drove him to play a part in helping build up the gaming community around Long Island, “I’m shy, [MT Summit] gave me the opportunity to branch out and gaming was a great platform because I felt comfortable with it. Other people who may or may not be shy can get into something that seems very scary, like competing. When I first started, my goal was to come in as a little bit of the money man. My intentions were to do something different that I’ve never done before. My goal is to reach people.”

Even though Chris primarily plays shooters and doesn’t compete in fighting tournaments, he found a way to get involved in the community he loves. There’s no right or wrong way to play a part in the video game industry and there’s a place for everybody.

Born Leader

Taking a second to escape the crowd, the Gigamax crew sat down with Joe, CEO of MT Summit and Tim, Creative Lead. Joe was asked how he found himself leading the organization and gave a surprising response, “Alex reached out to me, while I was still at the University of Virginia and asked if I wanted to help work on [MT Summit] and I said, no I don’t. That ended that for a while. I kinda came back to it later and was like, you know what, it could be fun. I’ve played video games my entire life and gaming is definitely a growing industry.”

Joe continues, “My initial hesitation was that I’m a public policy guy and I was getting my masters degree and when he asked me I was in the middle of writing my thesis. I realized as things were winding down that I had some free time, and this could be something really cool. “ A natural born leader, Joe had the unique ability to step into a leadership role. Again, this is a prime example of an individual that loves gaming and has his own unique set of skills finding his spot within the amazing gaming community. It was fascinating to learn about how Joe got involved and goes to show no one knows what tomorrow can bring.

The Creative Vision

Tim, Creative Lead is responsible for all the branding materials that come out of MT Summit. He too had an interesting journey that led him to take a vital seat within the organization. “Alex kinda approached me one day when we were hanging out and said, hey Tim you do all this art stuff right, and he showed me logos they were working on. Fortunately, they weren’t spending too much money on it. What ultimately wound up happening was that I said, give me 5 minutes and I’m going to make a quick rough sketch. At first, all I was there to do was to set up the branding and logos, evenly I was asked if I wanted to be a part of [MT Summit].”

Now, Tim holds a critical role in MT Summit. All the posters, merchandise, and anything else with graphics, Tim is the one that puts it all together. An artist at heart, he found a way to turn that talent into means of being enveloped by the gaming community that’s so close to his heart.

Inspired and Determined

The one with the initial vision to bring MT Summit into existence was, Alex. With aspirations of one day being a professional eSports competitor, a master at fighting games in his own right, he saw an opportunity to do what he loves but in a different way. Alex is the main tournament organizer, in charge of the brackets and getting players involved. “I participated in a tournament called Defend the North and there weren’t any tournaments like this back at home. That was last year around February.”

This realization eventually lead him to come up with the vision for MT Summit Gaming. But first, there were obstacles he needed to overcome. “I need[ed] people that were reliable enough to help me start this.” Eventually, he went on to cultivate the amazing team he’s working with today. One at a time, he connected the dots with help from the team and formed the MT Summit we see today.

It was clear he had a passion for what MT Summit stood for. Every word was sincere, and there was no doubt he was giving his all to bring this organization to new heights. “It’s honestly amazing, this whole process has been amazing.”

Even with this passion, there were still lessons Alex was learning. [One of the main challenges was] “understanding this position more, as a tournament organizer there are still things I don’t know. I’m self-taught” To continue learning, Alex faced these challenges head-on with his incredible team. Speaking with other event organizers around Long Island, collaboration played a large role in his education and has proven to be incredibly beneficial as the College Pro Tour came together in a spectacular way.

Final Thoughts

This story should be an inspiration to anyone that wants to get involved in the gaming community. Years of experience is a plus but drive, determination, and a willingness to learn will pay off in success.

Each one of these individuals had a very different story and took a unique path that led them to the door of MT Summit Gaming. The brainchild of Alex, he went on to find a reliable group of like-minded people with a shared dream to accomplish a spectacular goal. They’ve already reached some impressive milestones within the Long Island gaming community and it’s just the beginning.

There is so much more to the story behind MT Summit Gaming. This is not just the beginning of their journey, but the start of a fascinating story.

July 14th of 2018 marked their second Smash 4 tournament and it once again proved that Mid-Tier Summit truly wants to create an atmosphere where every competitor feels comfortable and invited.

They cultivated a community of like-minded gamers and created an environment focused on sportsmanship. It would be a challenge to walk around the massive venue and locate a cut-throat gamer starting arguments or putting down other competitors. Instead, a newcomer will find experienced competitors handing out advice and being invited to play friendly matches before it’s time to get serious.

The recent Smash 4 tournament had an impressive prize-pool as well. Along with the friendly atmosphere, Mid-Tier Summit offered a cash prize for the winner and runner-up. Gigamax Games even chipped in $100 to add to the excitement!  

More Than Just A Tournament

Mid-Tier Summit doesn’t only host amazing eSports events, they invite the video game community to get invited. This time around the event organizers invited a 3D artist that works with Bread Machine Games, an independent developer that is releasing Slam Land on August 7th.

Slam Land is coming to Steam, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Watch the announcement trailer below!

Spectators and competitors were able to give Slam Land a try and learn a little bit about its development.

MT Summit: College Pro Tour Competitor Interviews

MT Summit: College Pro Tour Competitor Interviews

Gamers of all kinds came together at the Cradle of Aviation in Long Island, New York to celebrate the College Pro Tour, hosted by Mid Tier Summit Gaming. Five tournaments, Tekken 7, Super Smash Bros 4, Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bros Melee, and Dragon Ball FigherZ, were taking place throughout the day and the action was non-stop. Gigamax Games was on location, speaking with competitors and the MT Summit crew to see what these tournaments mean to the gaming community and the individuals that put it all together.

MT Summit

The first thing that becomes absolutely clear when walking around to the different tournament stations is that these competitors are extremely supportive of one another. No judgments and incredibly accepting, MT Summit Gaming did an amazing job creating an environment where gamers of all skill levels can thrive.

“It’s incredible actually,” said Vinny, who was competing in the Super Smash Bros 4 tournament. He went on to explain, “It feels like there’s a lot at stake even though it’s a smaller tournament.”

Big Prizes and Support

Gamers from all over the island couldn’t wait for their chance to get a piece of the over $1000 in prize support, including a brand new Nintendo Switch. With such an amazing first prize, there was actually a lot at stake. However, even with the massive prize pool, the competition floor was still anything but cutthroat. Toxicity that is so often associated with the gaming community was nowhere to be found. A friendly atmosphere and gamers building other gamers up was the common theme of the event.

When speaking to SoulArts, the second place winner of the Super Smash Bros tournament, he stated, “The community has a lot of intertwined bonds” and after this weekend, that is evident.

Even with all the good vibes throughout the tournament, people were still there to compete and have a good time.

Whan (Chibi Whan), who was competing in the Street Fighter V tournament is new to the competitive scene and was excited to find out about MT Summits latest event. “I’ve been waiting for a Street Fighter V tournament for like, ever.” He goes on to say, “[I’m] trying to get a little more competitive with this kind of thing – I know more than I did a couple months ago, but I still have a way to go.” It’s great to see those new to the competitive gaming scene get involved and with the atmosphere MT Summit created, it’s a perfect first step into eSports as a whole.

Gamers From Every Skill Level

Another gamer Gigamax Games had a chance to meet was Synchronaizah. It was his first time at an MT Summit tournament and he seemed excited. “I’m ready for it,” he said. After hearing about how close MT Summits College Pro Tour was to his house, it was clear he wanted to get involved, “I should just go and do this.”

Not only where there new faces, Gigs, and Mack met up with some people that attended previous MT Summit tournaments. The crew first met Tony (SolidTony), formally from Crossfire gaming, at one of MT Summits first events last year. He’s a bit of a veteran of the competitive gaming scene. “About when Smash 4 came out, I played it religiously and I’ve traveled, I went through a lot of tournaments.” It was incredible having the chance to get some perspective from a seasoned gamer. Tony continued, “We used to run our own events [on Long Island] and we kinda just stopped and real life happened. I took a pretty big hiatus with competing. I love gaming, I love competing.”

The tournament spanned all day. Gigs and Mack made so many new friends and learned so much about the Long Island gaming community. There were contributors selling incredible handmade and 3D printed gaming gear and there was always a place open for a free play with some great people. One of those new faces the Gigamax crew had the chance to meet was RickyG, the winner of the Super Smash Bros 4 tournament.

Winners Share Amazing Advice

RickyG left the MT Summit tournament with a brand new Nintendo Switch and even though his tournament ended halfway through the event, he stuck around all the way until the end. Catching up with RickyG after his big win, we found out a little bit about this talented gamer. “I only just kinda sorta started getting back into [the competitive scene]”. He definitely knew the Long Island Smash scene well, “At one point I would say I was one of the best players on Long Island but nowadays you have a lot of great players. There is some really rising talent. There’s a deep bond within the community. What brought me back is that I made a lot of friends in the scene.” Ricky also had some amazing advice for any future or currently competing gamers, “Don’t be afraid to talk to gamers at a higher level than you.”

Mike (Face), owner of Aion Gaming and Super Smash Bros Melee competitor who took home first place had another bit of important information for any gamer, “You can’t control how good your opponent is at all, spending any time on that is fruitless.” He went on to explain how focusing on practicing and improving yourself is the only thing that a person can do to keep getting better. 

There were so many gamers attending that are working hard every day trying to find their own space within the massive industry. Trevor, a Stream Technician from GenGaming and Aion Gaming, shared a few words of wisdom for anyone trying to get involved in the gaming industry. “There are so many ways you can get into [the gaming industry]. When you think about eSports and regular sports, there’s a lot of common allies.” He explained, “You can write, you can podcast, you can live stream, you can run tournaments like the guys at Mid Tier Summit are doing and what we’re doing over at Aion gaming, you can be a stream technician.”

Looking Forward

Not only was the College Pro Tour an exciting tournament, it was an amazing overall experience. Getting a chance to meet like-minded gamers, all from diverse backgrounds and at different stages in their competitive gaming journey was inspirational. It was fantastic to see top-tier gamers were giving advice to the newer competitors. MT Summit Gaming and the tournaments they host are the embodiment of what the Gigamax crew believes in, gamers can build each other up and thrive together.

There are few better things than video game tournaments and classic games all in the same place. This past weekend had it all.

The Tournaments Keep On Coming

The Gigamax crew was lucky enough to join MT Summit Gaming for their first big event back in August for their Super Smash Bros tournament. A huge crowd of all ages showed up to compete and see who would take the title for the Long Island  Super Smash Bros champ. The winner walked away with a brand new Nintendo Switch and pro controller.

It was seriously impressive watching these talented gamers brawl.

Even lone gamers can have an incredible impact on their local gaming community or beyond. Gamers can take an idea running through their head and bring it to the world and that’s an amazing thing. These small independent entities are proof that there is room to grow. Keep on gaming and love what you do.

A lot of this growth is thanks to small gamers like you, taking it uponLocal gamers, small gamers, independent gamers themselves to create communities and share new ideas. One organization that is an excellent example of both these aspects is Mid-Tier Summit Gaming. This small company has set out to create a community of semi-competitive gamers and offers them a place to test their skills in friendly competition.

Background of Mid-Tier Summit

Mid-Tier Summit Gaming is offering something to gamers that they can’t find anywhere else. Building a community focused on semi-competitive gaming, gamers now have events to test their skills against other local gamers.

The semi-competitive idea comes from the fact that these are not toxic environments. Anyone that games, understands that things can get a little overly competitive at times and this is when the harsh words come out.  Gigamax Games was lucky enough to attend the first event they held and it was one of the most peaceful competitive events the crew has ever experienced. Mid-Tier Summit Gaming is currently hosting tournaments in Long Island, New York but there’s no telling how far they can go!

Local gamers, small gamers, independent gamers

Upcoming Event

The next event is a Marvel vs. Capcom tournament and the first prize is something special, a Gold 1TB slim PlayStation 4 console and a Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite Collector’s Edition for PS4. This is right after they gave away a Nintendo Switch at the Super Smash Bro’s Brawl tournament they held in August. These events may be hosted by a small company but they offer some big prizes and draw in some impressive crowds.
