Students of all skill levels are welcome to participate though some might not be part of the starting lineup for competition depending on ability.

What are e-sports?

E-Sports are competitive video gaming.
There are many kinds of competitive video gaming including fastest speed, highest score & player vs. player.

Collegiate e-sports is generally all about player vs. player competition. Teams usually play remotely through the internet. This allows us to play against teams that are further away than we would otherwise be able to such as teams in Guam & Puerto Rico.

Valorant

This is a first-person tactical hero shooter. This means each character the player can choose has their own abilities that can be used for tactical advantage in the match. It is also important that proper items and weapons are bought at the start of each round to be used strategically. The chosen character (agent) is used throughout the match when defending or attacking. Players work together on teams of five to try to eliminate the other team, prevent the other team from planting the spike in time or disarm the enemy spike before it goes off when defending. When attacking, teams try to eliminate the other team or plant their own spike and have it go off before the other team can disarm the spike. Players generally need to maintain certain roles so they can work together effectively and good communication and teamwork are key to winning. You must win a total of at least 13 rounds to win a match. If both teams tie at 12 to 12 the match goes into overtime and one team must come ahead by two rounds to win. The maps used for each match are decided upon through a series of bans from each team. The first to win the best of 3 matches is the winner for that day's competition.

Rainbow Six Siege

This is a first-person tactical hero shooter. This means each character the player can choose has their own abilities that can be used for tactical advantage in the match. It is also important that proper items and weapons are chosen at the start of each round to be used strategically. A character (operator) is chosen at the beginning of each round. There are different operators to choose from when attacking or defending. Players work together on teams of five to try to eliminate the other team or disarm the bomb with the defuser in time when attacking. When defending, teams try to prevent the other team from planting the defuser (including by eliminating the other team before they can plant the defuser) or deactivate the defuser in time so the defender's bombs can go off. Players generally need to maintain certain roles so they can work together effectively and good communication and teamwork are key to winning. In the first minute of this game, attackers send out drones and try to find the location of the defender's bombs. The defenders try to set up defenses against the attackers & take out the drones before they can find the bombs. Player controls are more complicated and dynamic than most first-person shooters; laying down, laying back, crouching and leaning to the side are important when mastering the game. You must win a total of at least 7 rounds to win a match. If both teams tie at 6 to 6, the match goes into overtime and the first team to win 8 rounds wins. The maps used for each match are decided upon through a series of bans from each team. Also, one attacking & one defending operator can be banned by each team for a total of 4 operators banned per match. The first to win the best of 3 matches is the winner for that day's competition.
