The tournament series will feature rule-sets with dust limits and standard cards to help level the playing field for newer players, and rulesets with no dust limits and wild cards to let our Hearthstone veterans show off their most brilliant decks. The top players from each server will be invited to play in a final tournament to compete for a 3rd-class star of valor and the title GOTM Hearthstone Champion!

Release Details

PAY DAY 2

PAY DAY 2, a co-op heist game also won our monthly gaming club’s spotlight, snatching 16 votes! Join us as we split into groups and try to rob banks, casinos, and night clubs! Many people in the clan play Pay Day 2, so events should be packed. Events will be held every Saturday and Sunday this month. Check out what times at the social event calendar! Anyone and everyone who is capable of hosting events is encouraged to get some on the clan social calendar!

Release Details

PAY DAY 2 was released in August 2013. It features innumerable cosmetic DLCs, which are included in the new Ultimate Edition. The base game was also available for free last year a couple weeks before the Ultimate Edition was released, so many people in the clan own it. I hope to see a lot of groups get together to play!

Gameplay

Pay Day 2 is an FPS heist game that involves stealth tactics and role-playing. Your character can have so many talents, such as safe-drilling, lock-picking, cell-phone disruption, and combat medic. Players can lead heists on banks, jewelry stores, night clubs, safe houses, armored cars, and museums. There are no level locks, so any one of any skill experience can play with anyone else. Of course, at events, we will be trying to match people at the same level!
