* We can only keep up with so much. If there is a tournament that you think we have missed or incorrect information in this post please let us know by DM, or in the comments.
Hello Quakers with this on going post series we will be rounding up additional tournaments going on in our community over the next few days, weeks, and months. If you have not already heard Quake Pro League (QPL) Season 3 has been announced to start next year, so 2022. We have no additional information besides that at this point in time.
We only have a few more weeks in this year, but we have had quite the year for Quake. 25YEARS, and counting. 2022 looks very promising for us. The community seems to have found a beat to follow, and everyone’s commitment to Quake has truly shown through. 2022 will be a huge year for Quake Champions as it will be celebrating its 5TH BIRTHDAY.
The Pros, Organizations, and Community at large are still here while we wait for QPL Season 3. We currently have a number of events in the near future to look forward to, and several on going tournaments. Certainly we have no shortage of tournaments to keep us busy in the mean time.
Myztro Gaming’s IRONFIST 2021 has wrapped up. This was a big event in our scene, so I won’t be spoiling anything this week either. The Tournament was a pure joy to watch, and I’ll leave plenty of links for the VODS below. On top of this Myztro seem to be indicating that this was not a one off event, and plans for an IRONFIST2.022 may already be underway. Links to everyone’s twitter accounts below.
