Yep, it’s not just in Division II of NCAA that we send Academy representatives to. We definitely want a piece of that E-sports pie, so we couldn’t be more thrilled to be selected by Tespa as one of the 16 universities in the world to make it to this competition.
It’s going to be quite the journey for our gamers. All 16 teams will be assigned to region (there are two), based on the institution’s geographic location. The tournament will follow a round robin format, where the top four teams from each region will advance to the playoffs.
The bottom four teams will still have a chance to get into the Playoffs, though, as long as the3y win in the Play-in tournament.
Academy of Art plays the first match on October 5 at 1:00PM.
