A team of New College students recently participated in a gaming tournament hosted by GAME. The format was called Gambit Prime, from the game, Destiny 2. The students’ team, ‘Bristol Smugglers’, made multiple visits to the Belong Arena in Bristol at Cabot Circus and progressed through to the weekly games, taking them to the play offs.
The top four teams from each group were invited to take part in the play offs, where eight groups were narrowed down to four. These four teams, one of which was ‘Bristol Smugglers’, were invited to Nottingham to play in the finals. The team of New College students celebrated their great success, taking home the trophy for second place overall.
New College student, Dan Parker said: "The event was absolutely amazing and I got to take part in one of the things I am most passionate about with some of my best friends, It was a great experience and loved every moment being able to spend it with my friends. There were lots of influencers there and was great to see their perspective of the tournament as well due to the whole event being live-streamed to Twitch"
