Referring to Esports or e-sports, we will definitely think of young players with magical hand gestures. Although the number of older gamers in the world is increasing, esports is still a youth-dominated playing field, with very few people intending to participate in professional competitions when they are older.
However, that changed when an all-senior esports team was officially established in Japan recently. NHK reported, this team is called 黑熊 (Black Bear), with the participation of 8 elders with an average age of 69 years, of which the oldest is 73 years old and the youngest is 66 years old.
It is known that all the oldies share the same love for Fortnite: the battle royale game that broke into European countries, this will also be the direction that Black Bear will focus on developing in the future. All of the elders are in good mental and physical condition, and are currently actively training to participate in professional Fortnite tournaments.
Black Bear members said the purpose of establishing an esports team filled with older players is to create an environment that helps them promote their strength and allow their children and grandchildren to “see their faces.” This is also not the first time that an esports team made up of older players has been established, CS:GO’s Silver Sniper team has also attracted the attention of the gaming community by bringing together all the elders.
