8-bit Esports club and a Rebel. Given that moving from the Big Island 3 brief years back, Tsunezumi’s competitive spirit and desire to win has led him to become a high-ranking League of Legends player and captain of UNLV’s League of Legends group at the Mountain West Conference’s first-ever Esports Face-off.
Here are his ideas on pursuing his enthusiasm, leading a group, and contributing to Vegas’ esports community after graduation.
I always understood I wished to go to college, but I never knew precisely where. Throughout my high school years, I fulfilled my closest friends through playing video games. I wondered, “Was it possible that my college experience could be the exact same?”
I started researching schools across the country, particularly trying to find colleges with esports clubs. That’s when I found the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and the 8-bit Esports club– among the first collegiate esports clubs.
8-bit was the primary factor I came to UNLV.
My experience in the club has favorably impacted my college experience as a whole. I have actually constructed a network of supportive, similar individuals and grown tremendously as a gamer and an individual while doing so.
Taking part in the Esports Face-off will be the very first significant competition of my career, however I am positive in my team’s abilities to beat Boise State.
As group captain, I’ve increased the number of hours that my team practices to 12 hours per week– 3 hours every Monday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. As an included bonus, we’ll be practicing side-by-side on the very same video gaming computer systems that will be utilized at the Face-off.
Recognition in the esports community goes a long way.
Simply as is the case with other sport, I serve as a coach and a guide for gamers during our practice sessions. I inform them what they’re succeeding and supply positive criticism on exactly what could be enhanced. My job is to encourage and inspire. My drive and enthusiasm for esports fuels my desire to be successful at this.
I suggest, who does not like winning, right?
When I finish, my objective is to integrate my degree in hospitality management and my love of esports by working in a gambling establishment on the Strip. In the future, I envision a brand-new requirement for the integrated resort: a sportsbook where esports are transmitted on all the Televisions and video gaming makers allow gamers to bank on esports matches. Taking a lesson from UNLV’s Esports Lab, it’s safe to state that esports and betting go hand in hand.
Ultimately, I wish to help make Las Vegas the esports capital of the United States I truly believe there is terrific possible to do just that.
