Comicpalooza May 22-24, 2020
Activities Gaming

Comicpalooza’s gaming filled half of the 3rd floor and inspired players to play, compete, watch and learn. Throughout the weekend the casual gamer enjoyed our free play area while competitions for the worthy opponent were available on PC and consoles, as well as old-school systems that were provided by Retro World Series. You found a new passion or embraced a love from the past because it was game on!



ESPN Events teamed up with top esports publishers and hosted the inaugural ESPN Collegiate Esports Championship (CEC) at Comicpalooza, with highlights by league semifinal and championship matches in multiple game titles. Hundreds of schools from across North America competed in qualifiers hosted by Tespa and Collegiate Star League (CSL) for their chance to compete in the live LAN (local area network) championship event weekend. Scholarships were awarded to the winning teams’ institutions.
