It’s Time for a Comeback! Lasallian Esports Gaming Oracle 2022



With the shift to the online setting, the crowd’s favorite, Lasallian Sports Athletic League (LSAL), goes online through co-op PC games labeled as the new Lasallian Esports Gaming Oracle (LEGO). In the past years, LSAL has been the home sports tournament of Lasallians as hosted by the Industrial Management Engineering Society (IMES). From team sports like volleyball and basketball to an esports tournament, IMES continues to ignite the competitive spirit of the students, alumni, and professors through its rebranded image: LEGO.

In its second year, LEGO makes its comeback with the Viridis Arcus: the official esports organization of De La Salle University. This esports online competition is now open to all members of the Lasallian community nationwide while having the goal of promoting camaraderie and sportsmanship across the participating teams. From May 19 to 28, 2022, players will compete in the famous computer game: Valorant.

Over 80 players are anticipated to defy their limits to reach one goal – to be the champions. Teams will compete in a round-robin and best of 3 formats from May 19 to 20, 2022 for the eliminations starting from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM and from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM, respectively. The semifinals are targeted to be on May 21, 2022, from  2:00 PM to 4:00 PM and from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
