Mountain View high school has many clubs which involve many different hobbies and subjects, but one major group is unrepresented. Strategy gamers. These gamers play a variety of games, but some of the mainstay computer games are Starcraft 2, Age of Empires, Dota 2, Civ V, and Hearthstone. Board games are also traditionally popular with classics like chess and magic the gathering kl d, and newer games like dominion. The players of these games are the future e-sports professionals, and if the United States ever wants to even be able to compete with the koreans in e-sports the schools have to start training the children’s supple young minds today.
Strategy games can be beneficial not just because of the entertainment they provide, but because it can also affect a group’s reaction times, team skills, and overall intelligence.The schools have sponsored many different student activities from clubs like tsa to sports like ultimate frisbee. Yet the school has never had a sanctioned e-sports team. Mountain view could be the best school in the valley again and all it would take is a strategy gaming club and a team willing to take the challenge.
