To the Community
I have been a gamer since I was 4 years old. During my experiences that I have appreciated all the aspects of gaming, from its grassroots culture to the profit- and innovation-driven nature of the current culture and the nurturing it to greater heights. I have met many gamers who have joined in this crusade of mine. As the years go on, we will grow stronger and meet our true potential.
Edmonton Gamers  makes use of public venues that draw dozens, soon to be hundreds of spectators to expose this love of videogames to the mainstream . The strategies we employ enable us to make a difference in the videogames society and culture as a whole. The spirit of Edmonton Gamers is over 7 years old and is solidified by a core group of old school gamers backed by “new-school” champions. Officially, however,  we are only a few years old. We’ve done a lot in thoes 30 some odd months!

 Competition

The embracing of competitive spirit keeps gamers involved in the games they play. Competition brings out the excellence in a gamer and helps those who are not skilled to set goals for improvement. Gamers have been competing against each other for thousands of years. It transcends the history of humanity.

Video game tournaments, while not as ancient, have nonetheless seen many years. The first tournament series that really made me take notice was the Nintendo Power Fest World tournaments. Since then, many community organizations and forums ( For example shoryuken.com) have brought the evolution of competition to the forefront of the community.

The prevalence of individual tournaments have lead to the formation of gaming leagues. MLK, SRK, GGL, CPL and WCG are smong these. EG strives to be another of these leagues, contributing to the international scene.
