Competitive Video Gaming, known as Esports, is a rapidly growing industry all around the world, growing by the millions annually. Esports is not just playing video games but rather having a passion and a drive for improvement and perfection, as well as team communication and cooperation. Because of this, events such as the League of Legends World Championship, CS:GO ESL, The DOTA 2 International, and dozens more have viewership in the tens of millions.
We here at the Esports Organization follow that same passion and enthusiasm but also brings it to a collegiate level here at Missouri State. Our teams play at the highest level of gameplay, with even our Rocket League team earning money through competing in collegiate events. We want to create a friendly but competitive club for students from all walks of life to come and compete with everyone else. We currently house competitive teams in League of Legends, Rocket League, Overwatch, Valorant, and much more competing against other teams.
The Esports Organization also has many casual gamers that play together. One thing we are doing is incorporating more intra-club events for games like League of Legends that bring more of a relaxed atmosphere and a friendly space to play against your friends and other members of the club, so there is space for everyone here.
