Earlier this week it was announced that along with the Summer Games, Lucioball would be coming back for yet another year of fun. Well, with a returning – somewhat competitive – game mode, tournaments are sure to follow. This is exactly what Tespa has announced for this summer.
The world’s leader in collegiate esports took to Twitter for this special announcement.
The official tweet reads:
Lúcio is checkin’ in to the game of the summer — Lúcioball! Recruit your fellow classmates and register today for the Tespa Arcade: Summer Lúcioball Tournament, open until August 10th.
That’s right, Tespa is holding a collegiate Lucioball tournament for this year’s Summer Games event! During the weekend of August 11th-12th teams of three will have the chance to go toe-to-toe for a shot at a piece of a $900 prize pool (in the form of Battle.net funds).
At this time the tournament is limited to those located in North America, as well as the PC platform. Players will be participating in five rounds of Swiss-system tournament matches, with teams with a record of 3-2 or higher will enter into a double elimination bracket. This all boiling down to one final match up to determine the Tespa Arcade: Summer Lucioball champs!
