Fortnite Season 4: Servers again up as cinematic trailer leaks
Amazon is bringing the Cellular Masters match again for an additional yr, that includes Important Ops, World of Tanks Blitz, Energy Rangers: Legacy Wars, and Survival Enviornment.
Final yr, I had the privilege of attending Amazon’s Cellular Masters match in Las Vegas, and obtained a style of the unbelievable world of cell esports. Whereas some video games, reminiscent of World of Tanks Blitz and Vainglory, had unbelievable, put-together groups in full uniform and regalia working collectively in concord, my favourite tales have been the unassuming ones. Cellular esports has the flexibility to attract gamers who by no means in any other case would have stepped foot into that world by advantage of the accessibility of cell video games. Cellular Masters is a step up from Amazon’s different, extra informal sport match, Champions of Fireplace, in that it options extra aggressive titles. However that doesn’t imply there isn’t room for such tales once more this yr when it returns to Seattle in June.
Through a press launch, we realized that Amazon’s Cellular Masters can be held in Seattle this yr from June 23 to 24, with a $100,000 prize pool throughout all 4 video games. These video games are World of Tanks Blitz and Energy Rangers Legacy Wars, which return from earlier years, and Important Ops and Survival Enviornment. Energy Rangers: Legacy Wars and Survival Enviornment are open to anybody, with qualifying info on the official Amazon Cellular Masters website. Qualifiers can be held this Could, and we’ll hear who the gamers are by the tip of the month.
The match is being held a bit earlier this yr, more likely to steadiness out with Champions of Fireplace, which is normally within the winter. Hopefully, that mid-summer spot will draw extra viewers throughout Twitch, and its placement in Seattle will convey a crowd in-house as properly. That was the one disadvantage of my expertise at Cellular Masters final yr–your entire occasion was subdued, with a tiny viewers. I don’t suppose this is because of lack of curiosity, however slightly that there didn’t appear to be a lot native promoting. Don’t dismiss cell esports out of hand–the gamers and tales that got here out of Cellular Masters final yr have been unbelievable, and I can’t wait to see them showcase their expertise once more this yr.
