New Kotaku/Deadspin esports collabo Compete, in partnership with Gillette, is hosting the first-ever Compete Showdown on May 13. Attendees will get to test their skills against a Street Fighter V pro player, and you’re invited — if, that is, you have a great tale of precision to share with us.

Becoming a better gamer is about precision improvements. Overclocked, inspired by Gillette, helps you level up your esports game via precision in practice, on-screen and IRL.

Entering is easy. Just email (or hit us up at @StudioAtGizmodo, tagging @Gillette and hashtagging #CompeteContest) with a story/image/video/interpretative dance about the most challenging precision video-game move you ever mastered, from old-school tricks (like the 99 lives glitch in Super Mario Bros.) to new-school techniques (like optimizing “white health” attacks in SFV).


Studio@Gizmodo will pick the best story to win a trip for two to NYC and the Compete Showdown at Gizmodo Media HQ. (Extra consideration will be given to especially creative and/or Street Fighter-related entries). GLHF!

Contest Rules

Standard contest rules apply. Only open to US residents. If you don’t have access to email or Twitter, you can still enter by sending your story to Gizmodo Media, Attn: Compete Showdown Precision Contest, 2 W. 17th St., 2nd fl., New York, NY 10011.
