The Esports club

Here is where all the coolest gamers hang out and play in professional gaming tournaments for a chance to win glorious, glittering prizes! All manner of gamers are accepted here. There’s no need to worry about gatekeeping or rudeness! 

Tournaments are offered for games like “League of Legends,” “Fortnite” and others! And if you play a game you want to add to the esports team, get enough players together to make a full team, and you may be able to find some tournaments for it

The Michigan High-School Esports Federation, (MiHSEF) offers tournaments in “League of Legends,” “Valorant” and “Smash Bros.” These tournaments will still be available to sign up for until September 30th, at which point you will only able to watch from the sidelines, thinking about all the fun you’re missing out on!

Foster Neve-Jones, captain of the Overwatch team, is excited for the new year of Esports. 

“The game I’m most excited for this year is “Valorant” and that’s because we have a good, motivated team,” said Neve-Jones.

Neve-Jones was very excited at the prospect of “Overwatch” coming back this year, as the game is set to receive a sequel/update for the first time in years. 

“With ‘Overwatch 2’ coming out, we hope to get a full team of 5, but we need more players, so if you want to learn to play, come to some meetings and we can help you learn!” said Neve-Jones.

 

Don’t worry about it being a big time commitment either, as meetings are rare. So if you want to join the Esports Club or just hang out with gamers, then you should email the team’s advisor Brandon Wood
