Q: What is the After Hours Gaming League (AHGL)?
A: The After Hours Gaming League is a fun, modern twist to the traditional corporate sports league. Instead of softball or basketball, the AHGL offers corporate teams the chance for some friendly competition on the virtual battlefields of top strategy games.
Q: What games will be played in Season 4?
A: StarCraft II and League of Legends.
Q: When will matches be played?
A: Games are played on Sunday of each week barring extraneous circumstances.
Q: What are the key dates and deadlines for inclusion in Season 4?
A: Registration will be opening soon!
Q: How do I get my team into the League?
A: First you should reach out within your company and find other players using resources like mailing lists, newsletters, forums, bulletin boards, etc. We created a recruiting flyer to help you out. Try to network with other employees and ask them to spread the word. Once you have a team, start playing and having fun together since that’s what the AHGL is all about!
To be formally included in the next season of the League you’ll also need to register. Registration will be opening soon on our home page at http://www.afterhoursgaming.tv. The registration fee for Season 4 will be $300 per team. To get a sense of what steps will be necessary, check out our Season 4 Handbook. Key steps include: A full team of 8-12 players who are full time employees (35+ hours/week), permission to form an official company team (see handbook for details), and permission to play for your selected charity.
Q: Do the companies involved know about this League?
A: Yes! The AHGL is a corporate gaming league. As such, and in deference to corporate trademarks and brands, each team is required to have its corporation’s official approval in order to participate.
Q: Can I create a "fake" company and participate in this League?
A: Sorry, the AHGL is for real companies only :)
Q: Why is there a registration fee?
A: Running the AHGL each season costs more than you might expect, the registration fee helps defray those costs and enables us to improve the AHGL year after year.
Q: Is there a casting competition this year?
A: AHGL will not be hosting a casting competition this season, and you are always welcome to contact us if you'd like to participate as an AHGL caster!
