The Holy Angel University (HAU) Valiant Esports Club defeated the Far Eastern University Institute of Technology Tamaraws Esports Club (FIT TEC) Mayhem, 3-1, in the best-of-five League of Legends: Wild Rift finals in AcadArena’s Alliance Games on Sunday morning, July 24, 2022, at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
Despite the technical difficulties experienced in the venue where their championship was not televised live, HAU managed to find their way through victory, earning them the title of three-time defending champions in the collegiate esports league.
TEC Mayhem managed to snatch the first match, putting the pressure on for Valiant Esports to get the remaining games in the series.
But after the opening match, the Wild Rift Archangels completed a reverse sweep against FIT, making them the kings of the collegiate esports world again.
In an interview after the awarding, Chino “Shino” Engallado, a comeback player for the defending champions, thanked their fans, as well as his parents, for supporting him and his teammates in their esports campaign.
“Minsan parang sila na rin ung manager ko ganun,” said Shino on his parents showing full-out support.
“Like most of the time na bababa ako sa bahay, lagi nilang papanoorin games ko,” he added.
Valiant Esports finished with only a loss to FIT in the whole Wild Rift event, which gave them a payback to the TEC Mayhem after the finals match.
