The NDSCS Esports Club is comprised of competitive team gaming, and will compete in scrimmages and other local and national tournaments throughout the season. NDSCS Esports competes against other 2-year colleges from across the country through the NJCAAE.
What is “esports”?
ESports is the rapidly expanding world of competitive video games, encompassing a range of games and plots, played on a variety of platforms. In a typical match, players on opposing teams are pitted against one another to achieve a common goal. Players achieve this goal through dedication, teamwork, precision, dexterity, imagination and strategizing with their team members. Much like traditional sports, members of the esports club are required to attend and participate in practices and tournaments.
NJCAAE has 3 levels of competition:
- Tier 1 “Premier series” competes against the best players from other teams
- Tier 2 “Contender Series” For those that still want to compete
- Tier 3 “Open Series” More relaxed, anybody of any age associated with the school can compete
