From a trial season testing the waters to the opening of a high-tech gaming studio, the Lethbridge College Kodiaks have upped the ante when it comes to esports over the past year.
On Tuesday, the team unveiled a new, state-of-the-art studio where it will practice and compete during the Eastern College Athletics Conference season starting Jan. 31.
The on-campus studio includes a dozen gaming computers from Alienware, headsets and quality gaming chairs.
“The room is just insane,” said student athlete Bradley Pike. “These computers… I couldn’t have asked for anything better.”
Three teams of athletes compete in either League of Legends, Valorant, or Rocket League.
