Misericordia Adds Esports

January 10, 2019

Misericordia University will offer esports as a varsity activity beginning in the fall 2019, Chuck Edkins, director of athletics, has announced.

Misericordia is the seventh member of the Middle Atlantic Conference to add esports and brings MU's varsity offerings to 26.

"In an effort to provide our student population with diverse competitive opportunities, we look forward to the addition of esports," said Edkins.  "We will begin an immediate search for our coach and begin the recruiting process for the fall semester."

Esports involves teams competing head-to-head in multi-player games in front of a live audience or online through gaming broadcasters.

Misericordia's team will compete in the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE), the country's most prominent organization dedicated to competitive collegiate video gaming. Misericordia will participate in Hearthstone, Rocket League and League of Legends games.

Hearthstone is a competitive, collectible card game where players try to outwit and outsmart their opponents using cards that reflect monsters and magic spells.

Rocket League has been described as "soccer with rocket-powered cars" and features one to four players per team.

Set in an imaginative world, League of Legends gamers take the role of a powerful Summoner, calling forth and controlling brave champions in battle.
