Gameliefhebbers op de campus kunnen straks terecht in de nieuwe Esportslounge in de Bastille. Daar, in het gedeelte van oud-restaurant De Stek, willen Blueshell Esports, de Student Union en het Esports Team Twente een hypermoderne gameruimte creëren. Thijs Lieverse (24), teammanager Esports Team Twente, heeft hoge verwachtingen.
Esports Team Twente won their last game in the Dutch College League of the game ‘League of Legends’ last Wednesday, securing them the top spot on the list of best student teams in the Netherlands. Coach Bob Gellaerts and player Finn Tempelaar talk about their path to success.
Esports Team Twente recently teamed up with the Dutch Royal Navy. UT student Thijs Lieverse, one of the team managers, explains how gaming can benefit the soft skills and teamwork of marines. ‘Within a matter of seconds, certain people took the lead and started giving directions.’
