Currently taking the world by storm, eSports is a competitive gaming scene that puts players from around the globe against each other in a myriad of games. We are diving right in with our first eSports team this year, currently competing in HSEL's Spring Major Season for the 18-19 school year.
What games do we play?
We chose League of Legends for our first eSports team. League of Legends (or LoL for short) is a 5v5 Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) where players choose champions and fight for control of the map. The ultimate goal is to destroy your opponent's base (Nexus) while defending your own. There is a immense amount of strategy, communication and teamwork needed to accomplish this. For a quick rundown on the basics of the game, check out this short video!
How can I watch?
The team has a Twitch channel where you can watch all of our matches and practices, both live and previously recorded. Just head on over to twitch.tv/fasdesports to see what is going on! Our current schedule is as follows:
Weekly Season Match: Tuesdays @ 5PM EST
Afternoon Practices: Wednesdays & Thursdays @ 2:30PM EST
