Whether you’re going for a team kill in “Overwatch”, a Pentakill in “League of Legends”, a 5 Piece in “Counter-Strike: Global Offensive”, or taking 1st Place in “Fortnite”, WMU eSports is an excellent place for gamers to game.
Sunday to Tuesday Sept. 8-10, WMU eSports will be holding tryouts for a few different games and teams. Anyone who thinks that they have what it takes to make Varsity is welcome to come out and show off their skills.
The tryouts will not only determine who fills the Varsity spots, but also Academy spots the team of players who aren’t quite able to make it onto Varsity.
“I'm feeling extremely excited going into the weekend because tryouts bring out the best in player competition,” Trevor “BlueFin” Cwiek, president of the WMU eSports club said. “When playing games, we don't always release that same competitive edge when challenged with traditional competition. But when the environment is constructed and the individual is giving it their all, you really get to see what Esports should be."
Whether you’re a highly competitive player wanting to put their abilities to the test, or someone hovering on the line between casual and competitive, Cwiek encourages students to come to tryouts, meet the community and enjoy being around fellow gamers. A complete list of games, tryout times can be found on the eSports club’s website at wmuesports.com
