#Collegiate

The first official Genshin Impact University Carnival USA offline event will feature cosplayers, mini-games and collegiate esports.

Genshin Impact will see the first official offline LAN event tomorrow, October 29th. eFuse, in collaboration with MiHoYo, Genshin Impact developer, will be launching a full-scale collegiate event in Seattle, WA. Check out this guide to know everything happening in the Genshin Impact University Carnival USA LAN.
While there is an $11,000 tournament, this offline event is much more than a collegiate competition. The Genshin Impact University Carnival USA LAN will be a party for every game fan. Attendees will be able to enjoy the following activities:
  • Open mini-games
  • Activations with Genshin Impact influencers
  • Cosplay competitions
  • Special surprises

$11,000 Genshin Impact collegiate tournament

Eight University teams survived the two qualifiers rounds on October 15th and 16th. The finalist will be competing for the $11,000 prize pool under a special competitive format.
The Genshin Impact University Carnival USA tournament is a team event. Each University will be represented by three players, and they will have to stick together to assure victory. Teams have to complete a list of objectives ranging from domains to open-world exploration within a time limit. 
At all points through the competition, players have to stick together and complete all content as a team. However, things aren't that easy, any content completed without the entire team present would not be counted. 
Finally, the Genshin Impact University Carnival USAwinner will be determined by whichever team completed all objectives in the fastest time.

The Teams

These are the universities that made it thru the qualifiers. Among them, we need to highlight Rutgers University and the University of Nevada Reno, the two winners and best time in the first stage.
This is the full list of the competing teams and the times they made to get to the finals:
