This past weekend at eBash was a crazy one! With just a few days to recover after Indy PopCon we hit the grinding stone again to get ready to host the 5th Annual Achievement Fest!
Achievement Fest 2017 was hosted at eBash from July 13th to the 17th with groups of Xbox Achievement gatherers from across North America gathered at eBash in Terre Haute, IN. The weekend was filled with hundreds of achievement popping, special local challenges, and a lot of getting to know fellow players from the achievement community. Among those attending were former holders of the Guinness World Record for Most Xbox 360 gamerpoints achieved in 24 hours (individual) and Most Xbox 360 gamerpoints achieved in 24 hours (group). This year saw attendance reach peak levels hopefully a trend that will continue well into the future. If you’re curious about this event for next year you can visit AchievementFest.com for more information.
Not only did we host Achievement Fest 2017 this past weekend but we also took part in ggCircuit’s High School League Overwatch Tournament. High School students from across the nation had the opportunity to play at their local center competing in competitive bracket against students from across the nation. Our very own West Vigo Vikings represented Terre Haute managing to secure 2nd place! The next ggCircuit High School League tournament is on July 29th featuring League of Legends. If you’ve got a group of your high school peers that thinks they have what it takes to compete don’t forget to show up! Along with our High School League eBash is participating in ggCircuit’s Season 6. Players that link their League of Legends or Dota 2 accounts while at eBash can earn chances to win custom medals, headsets, keyboards, and much more!
Finally wrapping up an awesome weekend. We got to take part in an awesome event for the game Smash Up. On Saturday July 15th we invited tabletop gamers to play against each other in the Smash Up All-Stars Launch Event. Multiple groups of 4 players squared off to become #1 and win an awesome Smash Up play mat. All-in-all a fun packed weekend at eBash involving Xbox Achievements, High School eSports, and cool board games.
