The University of Wyoming Esports Club is competing in the “Esports Border War,” a rendition of the 120-year-old rivalry between UW and Colorado State University (CSU), Saturday-Sunday, Aug. 29-30.
The virtual event is a collaboration between the UW Esports Club and the CSU Esports Association. The six-game gaming showdown will take place on the schools’ respective campuses. Esports is a form of competition that is facilitated by electronic systems, particularly video games.
Six teams from both universities will compete in various online games that require a wide variety of skill sets to determine a winner. The games are League of Legends; Hearthstone; Valorant; Overwatch; Rocket League; and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
The event will be livestreamed on the popular gaming site Twitch.tv and will be broadcast on the Mountain West Conference’s Twitch site.
The UW Esports Club also is hosting a remote viewing party of the event on its Discord chat server for UW students interested in learning more about the club, and meeting team members and players. A link to the server can be found on the club’s website at www.uwyo.edu/rec/club-sports/esports.html.
Updates on the event can be found on Twitter.
