“Fear not death for the hour of your doom is set and none may escape it.”
Specially designed for Performance
Starting this month, a competitive showdown weekend will begin where teams battle it out for the glory of the God of Thunder. Thor's Challenge is a monthly open event weekend (anyone can join - even casual players). It is curated with you and your team's in-game growth in mind (almost like a mini bootcamp), culminating in a showdown vs other DI teams, with an experience similar to what you will find at a real life LAN tournament.
Thor's Challenge weekend includes:
AFU designed Thor’s Challenge to offer a tailored training experience to competitive teams in DI
It is no small feat to focus an entire weekend on your development and performance as a team while competing and being streamed.

Mjölnir is the hammer of Thor, the Norse god of thunder and is said to be one of the most fearsome and powerful weapons in existence, capable of leveling mountains. The hammer was forged by the dwarven brothers Eitri and Brokkr who to Thor that he may smite as hard as he desired, whatsoever might be before him, and the hammer would not fail; and if he threw it at anything, it would never miss, and never fly so far as not to return to his hand; and if be desired, he might keep it in his sark, it is so small.
Structure & Schedule
Friday 26th June:
- Can cross-division teams participate? My team has members from 2+ Divisions?
Yes! and you should!
- How does Thor's Challenge relate to Valhalla League?
Valhalla League teams will be selected from teams who regularly participate in Thor's Challenge and Fight Night. We are looking for teams who don't just talk "about getting good", but actually invest time "to get good".
- Does it have to be my Primary Game or enter in more than one team?
Nope! Anyone can register for any game - although only ONE entry is allowed. Eg. You cannot play for Rocket League AND League of Legends. So choose wisely!
