Computer Power Plus and TechCafé have teamed up with Letsplay.live to organise the HSL on behalf of the New Zealand eSports Federation. Thirty CPP students will be assisting with the administration, broadcasting and logistical support of the league for the duration of the tournament through TechCafé.
The High School League (HSL) is a free national eSports competition for New Zealand High Schools. 100 school teams from Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin will sign up to take part in a nationwide League of Legends competition starting 24 July.
League of Legends is a fast-paced, competitive online game. More than 100 million people play League of Legends every month around the world. Two teams of five players compete during the game over different maps and game modes. It offers endless ‘replayability’ for players of every skill level and League of Legends is an example of a strategic game that can enhance students’ science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills.
eSports is also a great opportunity to engage students in their playing field and use their love for video gaming to build teamwork, sportsmanship, social connections, strategic thinking, break down barriers and focus on their schoolwork.
