Complete esports interest form

Rocket League is a sports-action game that combines soccer with driving. Students will compete in teams of three to get as many goals as they can in five-minutes. The game’s combination of familiar objectives and fresh mechanics made it an instant hit in the world of video games.

SMITE is a multi-player online battleground where players pilot mythological characters and battle for control of a three-lane map. Teams of five players must work together to level up their characters and secure map objectives to siege the enemy’s base and conquer the opposing Titan. SMITE offers a third-person perspective which is unique in the genre.

League of Legends combines the speed and intensity of a real-time strategy game with role playing game elements, as two teams of five compete head-to-head across multiple battlefields and game modes. Each player has a specific role and must support one another to succeed.
