The top three players were awarded medals

  • Cars playing soccer? It might be a weird concept for a game, but it’s extremely entertaining and frustrating. Students got to compete in the university’s first PS4 Rocket League tournament of the year on Thursday Jan. 25, but only one winner could emerge.The tournament was set up by UNF’s Esports Coordinator Luis Puesan, who hosts weekly Super Smash Bros. matches and the scheduled tournaments throughout the semester. Only 15 players competed this time around, and Puesan decided to settle for Rocket League Items One veruses One matches in the rocket-powered game.

    The top three players were awarded medals. However, the medals weren’t there, so they will be delivered to the winners next week. The first place winner also got an exclusive poster created by Thafnine, a graphic designer for Rival Esports and Paragon.The rules are simple. Contestants control rocket-powered vehicles to push, slam, or crash the ball into the other player’s goal. Whoever has the most points within the five-minute match gets to move into the next round. It’s also double elimination meaning the loser gets a second chance to win if they are sent to the losers’ bracket.The tournament had the audience mesmerized as they saw the players colliding, rocket cars flying, and balls exploding throughout the matches.
