COMBAT TESTED GAMING LEAGUES

The VFW, America’s largest organization of combat veterans has teamed up with KC Crew to offer our nation’s veterans a seamless and innovative way to connect – Combat Tested Gaming leagues!

Gaming and the connectivity it brings has proven to enhance veterans’ mental well-being through social engagement and skill development in a supportive and inclusive environment. Through these leagues, we’re calling on all service members and veterans to join in on the gaming action, build camaraderie and have fun doing it.

FAqs

You will play from home so you must own a console (Playstation, Xbox or PC) and the game you will be playing. Live streaming is welcome!

Any active-duty military or veteran who is 18yo and above can play in the leagues.

All games are played online at the specific time in the schedule.  You will join the Discord channel and then breakout to play against your opponent. 

You must have access to an Xbox, Playstation or PC as well as an internet connection. 

We are only using games that are free to download. If you do not have a console (PS4, PS5, Xbox X/S, Xbox One or PC), you would need to purchase one in order to play. 

The first night, all players will report to the League Voice Channel at 7pm CDT. We have a welcome speech for all players to explain the league and answer questions.

After week 1, teams will report to their game room between 6:45pm-7pm CDT to meet with their opponent before beginning play. 

All scores will be reported in your assigned game room for each week. There will be a match results text channel in your game room. You will report scores and screenshots after your match each week. 

To expedite us recording scores, please type out the results as well (total wins for Rocket League and total kills for Warzone)

To report rule violations, toxic behavior, or match disputes, please notify our league director at events@kccrew.com Keep in mind that this does not guarantee the score being changed as each report will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
