​​DePaul Esports and its fellow BIG EAST competitors are set to face off with opponents from the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in a Rocket League tournament for bragging rights on Dec. 13.

In addition to the Blue Demons, participating teams for the BIG EAST are Butler, Creighton, Marquette, St. John’s, Seton Hall and Xavier. Participating teams from the MAAC are Fairfield, Marist, Niagara, Quinnipiac and Siena.

Competing for DePaul will be seniors Linas Savickas, Alex Rodriguez  and Erik Wolf, sophomore Spencer Ficht, and freshman Nicholas Mrowca.

Seeding is based on the current standings in the fall EGF Collegiate season, which started Oct. 5.

The Electronic Gaming Federation will be operating the event, and teams will compete in a best-of-five format, three vs. three. There are 11 games in the tournament with the first round starting at 11 a.m. The top four seeds received a bye to the second round.
