As a student esports association, DSEA has several competitive teams. These teams represent our association in competitions and tournaments. As DSEA, we represent Delft in student esports competitions.
In the upcoming college year, we are looking to host our own esports tournament and competitions for three main games. These games being League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Super Smash Bros. Melee. In December a big tournament for League of Legends and CS:GO will be hosted followed by a competition starting in january. For Super Smash Bros. Melee we will host a bracket once every two weeks on our LAN evening as well as two big international tournaments in the winter and spring. If you are interested in playing your favourite game(s) competitively, or if you are a tournament organizer and want DSEA teams to join your tournament, feel free to contact us.
We strongly recommend everyone to join a team, joining a team doesn't have to mean always playing to get better and to win but can also be just to play some fun games with friends. The reason we recommend joining a team is because you will get to meet more DSEA members and also be able to join the big tournament in December which is going to be one of the highlights of the year.If you join one of our teams you will play together with other members of DSEA. When you are a member of a DSEA team, you will practice and play your competition. Practice is often 1 or 2 times a week but you can arrange more or less training sessions together with your team. Since we are a student association we join competitions to win matches of course but also to have a lot of fun. We aren't professionals so we will try to help our teams with as much as possible but we can't promise a coach for every team or pay for travel expenses.
League of Legends and Counter-Strike:Global Offensive:
For LoL and CS:GO a big tournament will be hosted by DSEA in December followed by a competition starting in January, the details for these events need to be worked out but teams can already start practicing to perform as well as possible.
The team classification will be as follows. Our main teams get selected based on try-outs, this means that everybody who wants to try-out plays a few games with other people that signed up and after that we decide what the best possible combination for each team is. The amount of try-out based teams will depend on the amount of sign-ups we get. More information about try-outs such as the amount of teams available and dates on which they will be held will be sent via email at the start of the academic year.
The other teams get classified based on rank, role and preferences. When you sign up you can let us know if you want to play in a team with one or a few of your friends and we will keep that in mind. We will not force anyone to play in a team which they don't like playing in, so if you\ve been classified in one of the teams you are free to tell us if you think you dont fit in well with the team.
Hearthstone and Overwatch
For these games we have few players that are interested but not enough to join a serious competition. If we get enough sign-ups for an Overwatch teams or if you are really excited for Hearthstone we will find a competition to compete in. So, if you are interested in these games or know a competition which we can join please let us know because we would really like to have players and teams play these games.
If you are really passionate about a game that hasn't been listed yet please contact us and we will help you find more players for a team and a competition which you can join. We are always happy to have another community join DSEA!
