The Iowa Pro Gaming Challenge went BIG in 2012.

Gamers from over 15 different states converged in Des Moines, to compete for over $10,000 and during this two day video game tournament, TIPGC showcased tons of exciting Call of Duty, Gears of War, and Halo action.

With over 60 gaming station, a beautiful Main Stage, amazing staff, big prizes, free green beer, and the professionally-produced live stream – TIPGC 2012 treated attendees to a unique experience while including online viewers all weekend long.

In each of the three 4v4 game divisions, we had some intense competition.  With over 50 total teams, it was fun watching the tournament brackets drive teams forward towards the championship, while leaving other teams surely wanting more.  Everyone had a blast, but in the end, each game division announced 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, who all received some exciting prizes and a great payday.

Spectators at the venue and what would top out at over 550,000 online viewers, were treated to some amazing commentary and a unique live stream experience.  Our commentating team, lead by GoldenBoyFTW and Marksman, was supported by the amazing Focus Fire production staff all weekend long and provided a wonderful and interactive experience for thousands.  In fact, highlights from the live stream broadcast can still be enjoyed on our sponsoring live stream website, Twitch.TV.
