Club Update: The League of Pirates

The League of Pirates is a Whitworth club based around the popular online video game “League of Legends,” a free to play multiplayer online battle arena. The game focuses on strategy and teamwork, with the most popular game mode focused on destroying the other team’s nexus (or base) while still defending your team’s nexus. “League of Legends”has become one of the most popular video games in the world in the past few years, and that popularity that spawned many competitive teams. Whitworth is no different. The League of Pirates started in 2012 and allows for both experienced and new players to enjoy “League of Legends”with people around campus in a recreational and competitive environment.

The League of Pirates has several different types of events. It hosts various tournaments throughout the year for Whitworth teams with prizes for the winners.
