What games do you play?

The 101 is currently doing competitions in Super Smash Bros Ultimate and Melee, but as we grow, we are planning to do more team based titles like League of Legends, Overwatch, and Rainbow Six: Siege. We want to offer a wide variety of games, letting fans of all genres have an opportunity to show off their skills. But drop us an email, shoot us a DM, or tell us in person if there's a game you want us to run a tournament series in!

Where do you play?

All of our games are either online or live, in-person, at venues all across North County in theaters, arenas, community centers, breweries, parks, hotel ballrooms, and convention centers! Most will be held in Oceanside, our base of operations, but we want to include all of San Diego in our league. Some venues will be 21+ only due to the venue serving alcohol, so double check the event listing to ensure you're old enough to attend. Let us know if there is a venue near you that you'd like us to visit!

What should I do if someone acted inappropriately towards me or another player?

If anyone at an event does something, says something, or acts in a way that makes you or anyone else uncomfortable, immediately contact a staff member of The 101. If you are unable to speak with us in person, email us at and we will do everything we can to help.

The 101 is dedicated to making this a welcoming, inclusive, and fun space for all players.
