(if you want to skip the explanation the server can be found here: https://discord.gg/G7cKBXU)

Slodderhaai and I created this portal for several reasons: first of all, it is an attempt to make the competitive scene more accessible to teams of all skill levels, from brand new teams to the veterans.
It is our aim to offer all teams a challenge, regardless of their individual skill and experience as a team.

Secondly, we hope we can contribute to the overall quality of competitive matches.
Individual skill is one thing, but teamwork is the key. We offer a very easy way to practice both at the same time.
Finally, we want the competitive scene to grow: more teams, more matches, more fun!

Cool! But what is a scrim?

A scrim is basically an organised friendly match between two teams.

Scrims offer an entirely different experience than pub games. They're a bit more serious, but that doesn't mean they can't be fun.

Playing in scrims has a number of advantages:
You get better at watching the minimap, finding the good moment to initiate, test your team's synergy etc. In other words: your game sense gets better.
The enemy team might also have advice to tell you based on your team's performance.
Since scrims are quite similar to tournament matches they also help you with testing teamcomps.
Teams with better players also favour scrims since they are usually more challenging than pub games.

Quote:
So what exactly can I do in the scrim portal?

Quite a few things that make it easier to set up scrims!
Upon entering the group we advise you to sign up your team, if you have one.
That way it's easier for people to find you.
Even if you know everyone in the community, it might be useful for other people to be able to contact you more easily.

Scrims can be set up in a number of ways:
You can find specific people you are looking for much easier. That way you can add them to your friends list and communicate privately.
If you don't know the competitive scene too well you can browse the team list.
And finally an event can be made. This event will be seen by the whole group and anyone that is interested can reply to it.

Scrims are not strictly reserved to official tourney teams.
In fact, you don't even need a team. You can simply play with 2 friends that want to scrim another organised team.




You can find the group here.
There's also a steam group, but it's probably dead at this point
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/Awesom ... rimPortal#.
Hope you have a fun scrimming time!

This is just... great. We could maybe use a sticky on this one, even.
