ITS students at the “Summer Ranking” esports competition

A LAN competition was held in three games – FIFA, CS: GO and League of Legends – organized by the esports section of the LINK Educational Alliance.

Excellent performance of our e-sportsmen

LINK eSports gathered its students at the Net Cafe Escape gaming centre for the two-day LAN tournament and formed the CS: GO, LoL and FIFA teams. The organiser announced that it is planned to hold this tournament one more time during this summer.

Besides the students of Information Technology School (ITS), who were the most numerous, representatives of Savremena Gimnazija, Information Technology High School (ITHS), International School and the Faculty of Contemporary Arts in Belgrade also took part.

Regarding the format, the CS: GO and League of Legends teams played the BO3 semifinals, while the final matches were BO5. FIFA, whose matches tend to be much shorter when compared to CS: GO and LoL, initially had the group stage, and then the BO3 semifinals and BO5 finals.

ITS e-sportsmen, as well as other pupils and students of the LINK Educational Alliance, proved that they have exceptional sportsmanship

The first phase of the LINK eSports project was scouting, while the second was the tournament of teams made up of students from five different faculties and secondary schools. In the beginning, the teams competed against each other, and then, one team fought the other two at the same time.

LINK eSports as a part of the LINK Educational Alliance has been established to popularize esports engagement. Having in mind the global esports popularity, when selecting the tournament games, we thought of these most widespread, thus making the tournament team results more valuable. As previously agreed with Net Cafe Escape, the tournament lasted two days.
