What are the games and rules of ZLAN 2022?

The ZLAN has been a multi-gaming event since its first edition. This means that the players compete against each other in different games, of which there are 11 in number this year. It includes Apex Legends, Worms WMD, ZUTOM, Elden Ring, Riders Republic, Rocket League, Age of Empires 4, Fall Guys, Hotwheels Unleashed, Pro Soccer Online and a mystery game to be revealed during the finals. If some games make it easy to pick the winner of a showdown, others don’t. This is especially the case for Elden Ring, the successful RPG presents an adventure relatively reserved for solo play. We describe the rules of the confrontations specific to each game.

  • Elden Ring : Relay Speedrun, players pass the controller and have 45 minutes to kill 3 bosses (Dragon Aheel, Godrick, Crimson Wolf or Radagon). The fastest team wins.
  • ZUTOM : Find fifteen words in a given amount of time with as few attempts as possible. Each player sits alone in front of his keyboard.
  • Rocket League : A BO3 between the two trios, only in the final phase.
  • Age of Empires IV : General melee in team relay on a map that brings together six trios. Players must hover over the mouse every five minutes.
  • Apex Legends : Custom games where the number of kills and the final placement yield points. The final phase of the ZLAN is played on arenas in 3v3.
  • Pro football onlinee: Matches in 3v3 of 5 minutes during a BO5, only in the final phase.
  • Hot wheels unleashed : Races against other players that bring together 6 players from different teams in the group stage, and a trio against each other in the final stage.
  • Autumn boys : Games that bring together players from the same pool during the first phase of the competition and from two pools in the second phase, each event won is worth one point per team and a win is worth 5 points.
  • Riders Republic : A huge 57-player race during the first group stage and a 6-player race during the final stage.
  • Worms Weapons of Mass Destruction : Death matches with 4 teams of six worms (two per player) in the group stage, death matches with 2 teams of six worms (two per player) in the final phase.
