  • To use the Esports Lounge gaming stations, students will need to make a Metactix account, from the gaming station login screen.  
  • Click on register. You will be prompted to create a Metactix Account. (Students may use their school email or personal email for creating this account.)
  • After you have made your account, you will need to verify the account through the email sent to the address you provide. This must be completed before you can log in.
  • Once you have verified your account with Metactix, you will be able to log in to an Esports Lounge gaming station, however, you will still need time added to your account.
  • Please send an email to with your full name, gamer name, and the email you used to create your Metactix account. An Esports admin will add time to your account so you can begin playing. You will receive a reply email when the time has been added. Note: It may take up to 24 hours for the time to be added.
  • After time has been added to your account, you can begin to play any installed games on the gaming stations. You will have two options to play most games: One is the play, where students use their platform account to play. The other is borrowing an account, whereas students will borrow a CLC account to play the game.
  • Note: Borrowing accounts are only available for Steam and Epic platform games.
  • We use Steam, BattleNet, Epic or Riot games platforms to play the installed games on each gaming station.
