TSEA Link Was Officially Founded
100th Member Joined
On the 10th of September in 2016, roughly a year after its conception, the 100th person would join TSEA Link. Link had seen a huge growth in its first year and showed no signs of stopping its expansion.
First Edition of The Missing Link Conference
The Missing Link was created to fill a gap identified by the two founders of Link (Maurits & Jos). They found that a great number of scientists, one of their own members - Chrissy Cook included, faced substantial difficulties in finding people for their research. Furthermore, there was no real event matching E-Sporters and their teams, businesses and academics together: thus, the Missing Link was born.
Link Game Room Announced
Link finally announced that we would be receiving our very own game room, which would be dubbed 'Spawn Point'. The Spawn Point will allow competitive teams to train together and will also function as a social hangout.

Second Edition of The Missing Link Conference
After the success of the first edition, the Missing Link would be hosted a second time, this time featuring Chrissy Cook, Maria Ruotsalainen, Max van Kuipers and Link founder Maurits Meeusen. Equally succesful, this year would learn us about legal challenges in the e-sports industry, research on trolling behaviour in League of Legends, the portrayal of Overwatch League in mainstream media and give us insights on the work of a mental coach for an e-sports team.

Opening of Spawn Point
In April 2019, we finally opened our own room on university grounds. The room, named 'Spawn Point', will be used for members to play games and organise events. Competitive teams will be able to train in the room as well.
Founding of Respawn
On June 14th 2019, Link's alumni assocation Respawn was officially founded. Respawn is an initiative to keep graduates and ex-Link members involved with each other based on their common interests, even beyond their time as a student.
