Redmond, WA (Merxwire) – What do you think esports should be? Common esports items include multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA), first-person shooter (FPS), fighting, card, battle royale, and real-time strategy (RTS), etc. The other is a casual game with scores. However, there is now another: Excel Esports!
Excel Esports started online on June 8th, with 8 participants from Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, India, Poland, South Africa, and Malaysia. In the competition, the players have 40 minutes to use Financial Modeling to solve business-related issues raised by the organizer.

You read that right. Excel and esports are already related. This is a competition that brings together Excel experts to solve various problems in the application. This type of competition has existed for many years and finally attracted more people’s attention through broadcasting live the world championship in 2021.
In addition to hosting the competition, the FMWC official website also produced a world ranking points table for the players. This competition is full of professionalism and learning significance.
