What is a Lineup and why have one?
You have certainly heard of Lineups, they are very common at festivals, as they present all the singers who will perform at the event. In e-sports this is no different, because through Lineup you will present your team’s lineup for the match.

How to set up a Lineup?

1 - Choose the scenario
CoD? LoL? CS? With so many game options it is even difficult to choose one, right? But to start with, it’s interesting to focus on one. Talk to the crowd and plan what they want to play, after that do a brief research and define what suits each player. If you do not have a captain to define the roles, a questionnaire among the team can assist at this point.
2 - Create your brand
You will be remembered for it. So creating a brand and a name for the team that sends your team is something very cool! Take the opportunity to search for names of gamers groups to get inspired.
3 - Separate each function
At times like this, having a good captain makes the difference, after all, he knows his team well and can assign roles to each one. But if your group has not yet decided this, rest assured, there are other ways to scale the players. One of them is a form for the initial evaluation of each one, through which it is possible to evaluate the commitment to the team, the determination, availability for training, collaboration and team behavior. After the initial assessment, conduct a practical assessment and see how each player will behave during the match. As this will be a way to define your players, be very objective and clear in what you expect from each one in each role.
4 - Define location and times for training
