Middle School Esports Spring 24 Kickoff

The spring season is in bloom! From the entire team at the Middle School Esports League, thank you for taking part in what is sure to be one of the most memorable seasons to date. As we kick off the spring events, let’s take a look at what we can expect:

Middle School Esports League Region Updates

To create more balanced matches and allow us to offer better queue time localization, we have adjusted our MSEL region structure for the most popular games. New regions will be East, Central, and West, solely based on your school’s time zone. Other games will host a nationwide regular season, but will split into Atlantic/Pacific playoff brackets to facilitate better match times for all participants.

Platform Updates

Our dev team has been hard at work upgrading the competition app for you over the winter. Since last fall, we’ve revamped the “head to head” tiebreaker system and implemented roster limitations (maximum players and locking periods) on a software level. Check out the dev blogs to learn more!

Winter Warmup

Before closing, I want to give a shoutout to our schools who participated in the Winter Warmup season: thank you for spending your time with us! Our goal for this was to keep structured play going in a low-stakes environment, where students could focus on honing their skills and warm up for the Spring Major. Winter offers us an opportunity to offer something different than the Majors found in fall and spring, so let us know what you think would be best for your students!

Thank You!

If you’re still reading, I just wanted to say THANK YOU to our coaches! The opportunities and experiences you are creating for your students is truly incredible. My favorite part of working with the Middle School Esports League and Generation Esports is getting to serve the wonderful community of passionate coaches and talented students. I wish you all the best of luck this season!

"In esports, I found my community AND my competitive spirit. I’m so thankful for the privilege I had in school where I was able to explore my musical passion, and I want to play a role providing that same opportunity to the students now, tomorrow, and forever. I want to give students a reason to come to school, just like I had."
