On September 15th and 16th, the Uniliga final took place in Cologne's Xperion, which was held over two days for the first time this year. In addition to the traditional final in League of Legends, the university champion in the game Valorant was also sought at the offline event for the first time.
The final in Valorant started on Friday with an exciting duel between DG Fire from Düsseldorf and the Esport Union Göttingen, which, however, was slightly weakened due to player changes. Göttingen did not show any weaknesses in the playoffs and, as the reigning university champions, went into the final as favorites without having to give up a single card. Nevertheless, Düsseldorf secured their first win of the day with a 13:9.
In the second game, Esport Union Göttingen retained the upper hand and won clearly 13:4. After an equally clear third round, Göttingen took the lead 2-1. The fourth game was extremely exciting, but ended with a narrow 13:11 victory for Düsseldorf, which led to the 2:2 equalizer. In the end, the favorite secured the match point and won the university championship title in Valorant for the second time in a row.
The League of Legends final followed on Saturday, in which KIT from Karlsruhe competed against AIX Esports from Aachen. Although KIT had already won the title six times, they had to admit defeat against Aachen in the first two rounds and fear for victory.
However, Karlsruhe was able to catch up in the third game and even equalize in the fourth game. After a total of five intense games, the winner of the summer season was determined. For the seventh time in the history of the university league, the university champion in League of Legends is KIT SC.
Uniliga: First final over two days
Bruno Latorre, Business Development and Partnerships Manager at Uniliga, was enthusiastic about the successful event: “For the first time, the final took place over two days. We are really pleased that the first offline final in Valorant received such a great response from the fans and that they showed up in such large numbers on Friday afternoon and created a good atmosphere in the stands. On Saturday, as usual, the students flocked to the Xperion in droves to celebrate until the last minute and cheer on their favorites. No wonder, because the four teams that made it to the final at the weekend offered our viewers a real spectacle on site and in the Twitch live stream.”
In addition to the exciting games, game analyzes and live commentary ensured an all-round successful sporting event. Partners such as Axians and Red Bull were on site to entertain the audience with a viewing area and a talk session, as well as to provide cold drinks throughout the entire event. In addition, Shopmacher presented the new “Macher program”. The Maker program offers studying gaming fans the opportunity to share their best gaming moments by uploading videos to YouTube and applying for a vote. They get the chance to win prizes and entry into the Hall of Fame.
