Didn’t catch the latest episode of CHECKPOINT XP: ON CAMPUS? Well, it was awesome, and you should definitely check it out as soon as you finish reading up on all the topics discussed on last week’s show… 

Earlier this month, a school in Maine made the decision to exclude the game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive from their varsity esports program. Thomas College cited the inclusion of terrorism, bombing, and gun violence as reason for the decision. Interestingly enough, in the place of CS:GO in the school’s program, Rainbow Six Siege will be played at Thomas. Rainbow Six Siege is a tactical first person shooter that features many similar themes as CS:GO.
