“Welcome back to the TGS Patch Notes!
We’ve had a fantastic first year, and we’re thankful for the community that has supported us since our grand opening in June. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your support. Throughout the last few months, we have experienced what it means to be the first esports stadium in Canada. We have tested what has and hasn’t worked since our opening, and all throughout our journey we’ve been floored by everyone’s continued support. For 2020, we are determined to give you a bigger and better TGS!
This month, we’ll be exploring new game titles, and increasing the caliber of our weekend tournaments. Keep your eyes peeled for the next few months of updates– we’re working on a lot of cool and exciting stuff!”
