E-Sports       

QCC Athletics new E-gaming team for the League of Legends has gotten underway. The highly competitive, fast paced, action-strategy game is designed for those who crave a hard fought victory. League of Legends is a team-based strategy game where two teams of five powerful champions face off to destroy the other’s base. Nate Mello, learning manager for Interactive Media Design, as well as a part-time faculty member, is coaching this year’s inaugural team. Practice is currently underway with the goal of participating in exhibition games later this summer.

"We meet on a program called Discord. It is an app that is used in the gaming community. It is integrated well with League of Legends as you can see all the people in the Discord Chat room you are talking to on the screen while playing," said Coach Mello. "We have been meeting Mondays and Wednesday nights for practice, mostly against other people playing the game around the country, but if we get more players that want to play on a regular basis, we will be able to host practices against each other."

There is still time to be a part of the team! Those interested in playing can email Athletic Director Lisa Gurnicklisag [at] qcc.mass.edu. Interested students must be enrolled at least part-time in the Fall semester and full-time (12 credits or more) in the Spring semester. A valid (within a year) physical form and a GPA of 2.0 or higher are required in order to play.

“We plan on playing a couple of exhibition games this summer against Bunker Hill and Mass Bay Community College. Scrimmages in the Fall will be against Bunker Hill, Mass Bay, Northern Essex, Bristol and a few other MA community colleges, as well as other colleges in our NJCAA Region XXI conference,” Ms. Gurnick said.
