No Esports organization would be complete without competition, and Rutgers has a number of powerful competitive teams. We play throughout the semester for fun and glory, and we’re always looking for new people to spar against or potentially join us. On top of that, we also have connections to major teams like New York Excelsior, as well as alumni who have gone on to work in competitive Esports.
Rutgers University has teams for Rocket League, DOTA 2, CS:GO, and more. Tryouts for each happen every semester, and every Rutgers student is welcome to try and join. We compete in collegiate tournaments against other schools, and most of our games are streamed on twitch.tv/rutgersesports. Most teams have both an A-team and a B-team, generally designated Division I and Division II.
Even if you didn’t make a competitive team, we still have a number of resources for you to get better. The Rutgers Esports discord server is home to a number of coaches for each game and some are willing to do VOD reviews or even give one-on-one practice. It’s never too late to improve, and our coaches would love to help you.
Don’t have enough time to devote to a team, but still want to compete? We have a number of tournaments throughout the semester, so join our discord so you can find out when and how to compete. Some games have more tournaments than others, Smash Ultimate competes biweekly at their meetings, while others like Overwatch only have one or two a semester, so get your friends together and prepare for some of the most exciting challenges of your career.
