The Collegiate StarLeague has teamed up with New York University's Game Center to host its second annual FallCraft event on Saturday, October 27th, 2012.
The day's events kick off at 10:00 a.m. EDT with the FallCraft Map Jam: a challenge to community map creators to create competitive 1v1 melee maps from scratch. Required map themes will test the limits of participant creativity, and force experimentation in map design. Submitted maps will be reviewed by judges, and the top three will be used later that night in an exhibition match between the NYU and Columbia University CSL teams.
If you are unable to attend in person, the Map Jam is open to online participants as well. Sign up here.
After the Map Jam, the FallCraft festivities continue at 7:00 p.m. EDT with Simon Ferrari, Nick 'iSAxslav' Ranish, and Ken 'HotBid' Chen, who will lead their Think eSports Panel Discussion. Professor Charles Pratt of the NYU Game Center will moderate the discussion and take questions from both live and online audiences.
The NYU and Columbia University CSL teams go head to head at 8:30p.m. EDT in a StarCraft II exhibition match called The Battle for Manhattan. Axslav will be casting games right up until the victor is decided, at which point he intends to join the fray and take on the winning team himself!
That's not all. Audience members on Saturday will have the rare opportunity to win Heart of the Swarm beta access in an exclusive raffle.
If you can't make it to New York for the event, don't worry. You can catch all of the FallCraft 2012 action live on the CSL stream. For more information on the event, check out the FallCraft 2012 announcement on TeamLiquid.net.
