If you have kids who play video games they are going to be really excited about this news. They also understand how popular e-sports have become over the years. Here in Connecticut a few colleges are embracing the trend now. A group of students at Scared Heart University have organized the first ever intercollegiate competition for video games! It started as a capstone project for kids who were in the e-sports minor program at the school.
Some of the other schools who have teams competing are Yale and UConn. They will be facing off against each other playing games like Super Smash Brothers, Rocket League, and League of Legends.
The people in charge at the schools want you to know that it’s not just nonsense gaming, these kids are actually getting useful experience they can put to use in future careers like sports management and broadcasting.
If you’re interested in the results, winners and losers brackets will be updated all weekend with a champion being announced on Sunday. Fun!
