After Shockbyte's first Insomnia attendance in April, the team has found it exceedingly important to put our feet on the ground and shake hands with the gamers who use our servers every single day. We've already met hundreds of players, nay- thousands who use our services out of the million players to have joined a Shockbyte-hosted server over the course of the last decade, and we're beyond eager to meet even more at each new convention.
In addition to meeting the team dedicated to your gaming experience, Shockbyte will be hosting exclusive competitions on the Insomnia floor for players to compete for a wide variety of prizes. If you're looking to get rewarded for your high level gaming skills by competing in some Minecraft minigames, Shockbyte challenges you to test your mettle at the Shockbyte booth in Hall 3A, booth number S4.

The only way to be on top of your game is for your body to be fueled up right, so you'll need to treat it right as well! Now that your gaming abilities are top notch, head over to the convention floor and take on one of the many competitions, like our booth!
