Introducing Guilds

Previous slide
Next slide

New Zealand Aotearoa is divided into six guilds, when competing in the New Zealand Esports Hyperfibre League, you will be required to make a team decision on which guild you wish to represent.

This decision is entirely up to you (and your team), but only the top representative from a guild can make it to the Champions Division and be able to claim the national championship.

If you are representing an academic institute, such as a secondary school or university, you must participate under the controlling guild of your main campus based on the guild map. For example, if you go to Otago University, you will need to compete as Frost.
