Can Genshin Impact become the esports scene? Wow, sounds interesting and makes you curious, of course. As we know, Genshin Impact is an MMORPG game, so what will the competitive arena be like? Well, developer HoYoverse (formerly miHoYo) is working with a UK-based esports media group, ginx tv, hosted the “University Invitational UK” competitive tournament.
So far, there have been many community tournaments in China and other regions, but the UK University Invitational will be the first official event to pit teams against each other in the Genshin Impact game.
The University Invitational UK is Genshin Impact’s first official esports tournament. This competitive event will feature divisions by nine UK universities, namely:
University College London
Imperial College London
University of Warwick
King’s College London
Brunel University London
London South Bank University
University of Roehampton London
Queen Mary University of London
University of Surrey
The tenth division will be a free for all Social Team division which will welcome teams of British students who are not from nine universities.

Teams representing nine university divisions will be determined through voting and qualifying stages. After the first voting stage, the four teams with the most votes will advance to their respective division’s qualifying rounds, where they will compete to determine university representatives in the finals.
Unlike the nine university divisions, the team with the most votes in the Social Team division will advance directly to the final round which will take place in London on 28 May.
The tournament will also hold another vote to determine the winner of the Popularity Award.
1st Place : £5,000 (US$6,100) + 2000 primogems for each member
2nd Place : £3,000 (US$3,600) + 1000 primogems for each member
3rd Place : £2,000 (US$2,400) + 500 primogems for each member
4th-10th : 500 primogems and official keychains for each member
Popularity award 1,000 (US$1,200) + 600 primogems
Participating travelers will receive 400 free Primogems
