This Saturday the two best high schools will square off to declare a regional champion for League of Legends.
With the season starting all the way back in May, the final showdown will be between New South Wales’s Kingsgrove North High School and New Zealanders Rangitoto College.
The two schools will duke it out 2pm AEDT in a best-of-five series that is sure to be an epic.
Rangitoto will be the favourites for this one having a stellar performance in the championship rounds advancing from the winners bracket. However Kingsgrove North have show true grit in their resurgence after an early loss in quarter finals.
For Rangitoto College’s Captain ‘LemonLord’ there is an essence of it feeling like the “last dance” for his team. His favourite moments of the META High School Esports season was bonding with his teammates as most of them approach their final year of high school.
“My favourite moment in the META season for me was playing with my teammates. With many of the players graduating and going overseas next year the most enjoyable part was definitely being able to play with them,” he said.
Rangitoto’s confidence is sky high though. They had clear intentions of making the final, and now they just have to convert on their regular season success when it comes down to it.
“Honestly, we were all already expecting [making the final]. We just knew we were talented players and so we trusted each other in-game to perform. Winning a title still means a lot to us because of how passionate we are about the game,” LemonLord asserted.
Rangitoto’s dominance in the finals hasn’t gone unnoticed with their teacher noting they’ve received recognition across the school for their efforts.
