WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

Whether you’re attending a viewing party or watching from your own house, there’s a few things you should be aware of while enjoying HRX 2018!

· Check Your Timezone: We have a schedule available for HRX 2018 on our website, which includes everything happening at the event in Eastern Standard Time (EST). Be sure to know what time the day kicks off in your local timezone so you don’t miss a thing!

· Be Prepared: We all know there’s nothing worse than getting ready for the final match of the Championship, only to reach over and realize you’re out of your favorite snacks or drinks. Make sure to stock up on the essentials ahead of time, so you and your friends can keep going through the whole event!

· Stay Comfortable: HRX is a long celebration which lasts a few days, meaning you’ll want to take time for fresh air on occasion. Have comfortable seating, take a break to stretch your legs, and sneak in a few games of SMITE or Paladins!

· Cosplay: If you’ve been looking for a reason to dress up as your favorite god, goddess, or Champion, HRX is it! Even though you aren’t attending the event, you don’t have to miss out on the fun of cosplaying your favorite character!

· Second Screen Experience: During HRX 2018, the Community Team will be hard at work to include everyone who isn’t attending the event directly. We’ll be running giveaways on Twitter throughout HRX, posting photos from the expo floor, and sharing epic moments from Viewing Parties around the world! Feel free to tweet us anything you’ve photographed at your own viewing party!

· Have Fun: Always remember to have fun and enjoy yourself during HRX! Celebrate with your friends, share your favorite moments, and dive into everything the event has to offer!
