The ECPI University Rams are off to a fantastic start to the fall season with solid winning records in Rocket League and Hearthstone. It’s early yet, but the season looks promising for both of these teams. Our League of Legends team, fresh off an ECAC Conference Runner-Up finish in the spring, is in a rebuilding year after many of the spring season players graduated or moved on. However, this young team has shown some promise already and Coach JJ Meyers is working with them almost daily to get them back up to speed for the spring season.
Our Valorant team is also a brand new team and in its first year of competition. The team is starting to come together nicely as they work on basic strategies, utility use, and mechanics. The more experienced players are definitely being patient and working with the newer players and it’s starting to pay off. The Call of Duty team is another brand new team this year and has already seen some moderate success during their qualifiers. There are two duo teams in particular you should look out for that are on the rise.
With the expansion of new games and rosters opening up to all active ECPI University students, the action is also starting to heat up on the ECPI University Twitch.tv channel (twitch.tv/ecpiuniversity). Our viewership has seen record levels this fall as interest in the program continues to grow from the student body and faculty. If you have not yet had a chance to check out the competition, please drop by the channel and see what you’ve been missing.
As a reminder, the esports program is now open for all active students, at all locations (including online) and we welcome all skill levels and abilities. If you love esports, but do not want to compete, how about becoming a part the of RAMS Stream Team? You could help broadcast the matches, promote on social media, and moderate our Discord and Twitch channels all while being an active member of the team and even earning a jersey.
See you on the battlefield! #GORAMS
