LEAGUE OF LEGENDS
League of Legends is a fast-paced, competitive online game that blends the speed and intensity of an RTS with RPG elements. Two teams of powerful champions, each with a unique design and playstyle, battle head-to-head across multiple battlefields and game modes. With an ever-expanding roster of champions, frequent updates and a thriving tournament scene, League of Legends offers endless replayability for players of every skill level.
HIGH SCHOOL ESPORTS
2019 saw 42 teams and 30 schools from across South East Queensland compete in the League of Legends Championships every Tuesday afternoon.
Depending on the resources available at each school, many teams
either played from the classroom or from a third-party venue such as
a library, neighbouring school or university. In some cases students
played from home with their parent’s supervision. Essentially, all you
need is an internet connection, a computer and a team.
The 2019 QLD Championship wrapped up in July with the top 4
teams heading to UQ to compete on stage. Kelvin Grove State College took home the trophy that day and went on to verse the top teams from the rest of Australia and New Zealand.
The NSW and NZ team were then flown to Melbourne by Riot Games to compete at the Melbourne Esports Open where Rangitoto College were crowned the 2019 National Champions!
Throughout the year our team and Riot Games also facilitated well-being and high performance workshops for parents, teachers and students and hosted exhibition matches in August at The Ekka (Royal Queensland Show). These activations saw students from opposite sides of the region come together and connect over a common interest: Esports and video gaming.
