The Edinboro Fighting Scots are working on building esports teams for a number of different titles, such as “Overwatch” and “League of Legends.”

In these efforts, Edinboro eSports is welcoming any student gamers interested in playing for the Fighting Scots to round two of tryouts. These will take place beginning Friday, while stretching to Nov. 22. Students will be able to play in the new eSports arena.

For those that cannot make it to any of the physical tryout sessions, there are a number of ways to still participate by contacting any of the team captains through the esports email: edinboroesportcaptains@gmail.com.

Students can also send a direct message to “EdinboroEsports” on Twitter. They are willing to make exceptions as long as those interested are available during practice hours.

Players of all skill levels are welcome, as long as they are “a team player.” They are looking for players that are enthusiastic about learning and improving, along with being prepared to communicate with one another.
