MANILA, Philippines — The busy summer continues for campus esports with AcadArena's University Alliance Cup (UAC) gearing up for the League of Legends: WildRift tourney in its second edition.
The first Wild Rift collegiate tournament in the country, it will follow the recently concluded UAC-Valorant where rivals De La Salle University's (DLSU) Viridis Arcus and Ateneo de Manila University's (ADMU) LG Esports locked horns in the finals.
It was a repeat of the 2020 Fall Season Valorant tournament, where Viridis Arcus won both titles.
UAC Wild Rift will adopt the same format as Valorant with two groups: Divisions A and B.
A promotion and relegation format is also in play as Division A teams will battle it out in a best-of-two round robin format, while Division B teams will be in a best of three double-elimination bracket.
The top teams of Division B will then go up against the bottom four teams of Division A for a top slot in next season's tournament.
Besides a chance at winning Php60,000 worth of prizes, all participating student gamers in UAC – Wildrift will be eligible to apply for the Globe AcadArena Merit Esports Scholarship (G.A.M.E.S).
The University Alliance Cup-Wildrift will begin its group stages this May with playoffs slated in June.
