We regret to inform that Endwar will not be occurring on UF campus. We have been in talks with Drac and the Endwar team about the event for the last couple of months. However, the announcement posted earlier today was posted without the consent or knowledge of Gator HvZ’s team or that of the University of Florida.
After weeks of little to no communication from Drac and his team, this announcement completely blindsided us. The University of Florida has yet to approve the event, the dates announced were not approved, and no location reservations on campus have been approved. None of the marketing materials or logistics for the event were approved or even shared with Gator HvZ or with the University of Florida.
Additionally, the decision to transition Endwar from a free to a ticketed event was not discussed with our club or with the University. We believe that HvZ should always be a free event open to everyone and pride ourselves on never charging our players to join the game.
For anyone who has already planned a trip to Florida, we apologize for any inconvenience. We tried to get this response out as quickly as we could but as mentioned above, we had absolutely no heads up regarding the announcement that Drac posted earlier today and are responding to this in real time.
All this being said, we will be hosting an invitational HvZ event during our Summer A semester that we encourage players to come and check out; this event will in no way be affiliated with Endwar. And we guarantee that our invitational event will be free.
