The focus for competitive FPS players is on strategy, planning, tactics, communication, mastering muscle memory, & team play. There is no focus on violence for the sake of violence, nor is there a desensitization to violence. I play these games, and my greatest satisfaction comes when we win as a team, when I outmaneuver and out-think my opponents, and when we all execute strategies as planned and practiced!

RCHS is fortunate to have a strong set of League of Legends players. Due to scheduling conflicts, our team was unable to compete in half of our games. IF YOU PLAY LEAGUE OF LEGENDS...

Call of Duty (COD) is played in competitions as 2 v 2, in COD MW GF. Game can be 4v4 in squad competitions. Royale mode, when offered, would be 1 v 150, 2 v 74, 3 v 49, 4 v 25, or best finish, respectively.
PUBG is on most lists as the likeliest game to become the epitome of the earliest Royale type games. Most players agree that Fortnite is easier to play, but that franchise is quickly waning, along with the heir apparent APEX. PUBG's numbers are at least maintaining, if not growing, steadily. Professional competitions are garnering high purses, and many in the community believe that it has the 'legs' to last.
