Overwatch is a team-based multiplayer first-person shooter developed by Blizzard Entertainment. Players on a team work together to secure and defend control points on a map or escort a payload across the map in a limited amount of time. Overwatch assigns players into two teams of six. Players have a selection from a roster of over 30 characters in various roles, allowing a lot of diversity and flexibility amongst roles. People interested in playing the game or joining the team at NTC should expect a very fast paced environment where they can improve on crucial team building skills, communication and problem-solving. The game is a lot of fun but from a competitive standpoint there is always room for improvement. So, if you're interested in something fun, ways to challenge yourself or just want to experience the game in a team-based environment, look no further.
Rocket League is a fast-paced game in which the players engage in a 3v3 format and use rocket-powered vehicles to play an oversized game of soccer. Unlike traditional soccer, in Rocket League you can fly in the air while doing acrobatics, perform demolitions on the opposing team members, and drive on the walls and ceiling of the enclosed stadium. At Northcentral Technical College, our Rocket League team competes in two separate conferences: The National Association of Collegiate eSports and the New England Collegiate Conference. In both conferences, our Rocket League team competes against schools from around the region and across the United States. As well as the conferences, we are always looking for extracurricular tournaments that our team can compete in.
