In just one year, this 65-year-old woman went from knowing nothing about computers to becoming a League of Legends player competing in the community tournament.
A year ago, the international gaming community was surprised by a “boy 1 champ” Xerath U60 at a League of Legends tournament for the elderly. As the organizers announced, this tournament is organized with the goal of bringing the concept of Esports closer to the elderly, helping them understand the passion of today’s youth for League of Legends as well as Esports.
Until recently, this senior tournament continued to attract attention when Hongguang’s team (the league and the former team of “boy 1 champ” Xerath last year) featured an elderly player who commented on game.
More specifically, Ms. Changi Su (65 years old) said: “Honestly, I know very little about computers, when I first experienced this game, I felt very scared but very happy.
As I gradually learned to play the game, it helped me use my brain and I realized I needed to use my hand dexterity.”
According to the sharing, Ms. Changi Su had to take the high-speed train once a week from New Taipei to Taichung to practice with her team and coach. At home, she trains herself for 5 hours a week to prepare for the tournament.
On the day of the match, although Ms. Changi Su’s team did not win, this is still a proud message about getting acquainted with Esports in the elderly community.
