For the Community, By the Community

The Michigan Fighting Game Community is amongst some of the most competitive and fiercest scenes that exist today. We have seen the uprising of such great talents such as Alucard, Zinoto, Hollywood Sleep, KJH, L-Train and Footwurk to name a few. However, there are many that don't know where to start who can prove their talents to the world. This site was the answer to that, giving would-be top 10 players a place to see where Michigan Based Gaming Events happen at.

We are doing our part to connect you to the competition!

Are you the best?
Prove It!

We are Gamers!

Up on the D-Pad LLC was founded in 2011 in a living room by a small group who wanted to make a difference to the culture that changed their lives. Today, Up on the D-Pad works with kids to teach them about Game Development while strengthening the Gaming Culture and Infrastructure of Michigan by hosting Tournament and Events to expose more gamers to the esports scene.
