Clark Esports and Highlights - 10/3

Clark Esports and Highlights – 10/3

Welcome back to another Clark Esports weekly recap! Most teams are through two weeks of NECC (National Esports Collegiate Conference) action, so let's break down all of it. But first, some events to recap/look out for! Last Saturday, Clark Esports held its first-ever Poker Night in the Grind! Over 40 Clark members participated, and congratulations to Jacob for being the last one standing! Next, with the Overwatch servers officially shutting down this weekend, competitive play will be transitioning to Overwatch 2! Clark’s official tryouts for Overwatch’s next installment will occur this Thursday, October 6th, at 7 PM. We hope to see you there!

League of Legends

Red (0-2): LoL Red lost their second match of the season, falling to Mount Union Varsity in two games. There was a significant improvement from last week, as they look to get into the win column this Wednesday at 7 PM against Alvernia University.

Grey (1-1): League Grey dominated in their matchup against Howard Community College, sweeping them in two games. Their success in scrims translated to match day, as Blake ‘TheOptimisticJG’ Shea recorded a perfect KDA on Graves in both contests. They’ll face off against the University of Ottawa Red this week.

Chromatic (2-0): League Chromatic continued their hot start, defeating R-MC Esports in comeback fashion. After dropping the first game, Chromatic destroyed the enemy nexus on back-to-back maps, winning the series 2-1.

Obsidian (2-0): League Obsidian remained undefeated, defeating their friends over at Clark Pearl in two games. They’ll look to carry that momentum into Wednesday’s match against SUNY Potsdam.

Pearl (0-2): As stated above, League Pearl fell to Obsidian on Wednesday – they face JWU Yellow this week to try to pick up a victory.



Red (0-2): Overwatch Red fell to the Ottawa Braves in their final matches of Overwatch 1. They held up well against the Ottawa Braves, as they was a significant rank difference in matchmaking, but eventually lost in three straight maps.

Grey (2-0): Overwatch Grey continued their undefeated run, beating Morningside Esports 3-0. They, like all the other Overwatch teams, will try out and transition for Overwatch 2 in the NECC’s upcoming season. 

Chromatic (2-1): Chromatic finished out their Overwatch 1 campaign against JWU Blue, losing 1-3.


Rocket League

Red (1-1): After a close loss against New England College last week, Rocket League Red swept close rival WPI Crimson! They’re set to face off against familiar foe UMass Black in their third match of the season.

Grey (1-1): Rocket League Grey went 1-1 in their first week, defeating NEC Blue in three games while falling to Alvernia Maroon in a five-game slugfest. They’ll look to get a positive record on the year on Friday at 5 PM against Eastern Eagles Maroon.



Red (0-2): Valorant Red lost to RPI Red in two maps, but managed to keep it relatively close (13-7, 13-7) despite having to play with an emergency sub due to injury. Clark’s premier Valorant team will look to pick up their first win of the year against Bryant Gold

Grey (1-0): Valorant Grey still has to play their rescheduled match against Lees-McRae. They will also face NEC Blue, a team they defeated in an Activation match.

Chromatic (2-0): Valorant Chromatic continues to impress in the Navigators Great Plains division, sweeping the Bradley University BoomBots quite convincingly. They’ll attempt to go 3-0 versus Coe College Gold this week.


Rainbow Six

Red (1-1): After an extremely impressive open to the season, only dropping one round on three maps, Clark Rainbow Six Red was defeated at the hands of Buena Vista University (2-1). 

And that’s it! Be on the lookout for our Apex Legends teams as they begin to enter tournaments, as well as our Hearthstone team gearing up for action starting October 10th.


Thanks for reading, and good luck in your games!
