As our resident geek & gamer will tell you, this part of the year is a busy one in the world of video games. It’s the time of year where all of the major blockbusters land on store shelves, in a bid to be crowned the holiday number one best seller. This year, we see a head to head war between Call Of Duty and Battlefield, battle of the platformers with Spiderman and Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, and open world epicness with Rockstars Red Dead Redemption 2 and the Spyro Trilogy.
But this year specifically, something even bigger is happening. Red Bull Player One, an international League of Legends tournament, is coming to Kuwait! 128 gaming enthusiasts can compete for the national championship title in one of the most fast-paced competitive eSports tournament, and head to the World Final of Red Bull Player One in Brazil.
The championship is completely unique and challenges in-game heroes across a variety of battlefields and game modes. The 1V1 format (or head-to-head) will be the platform for amateur gaming enthusiasts whose dream is to become a League of Legends star. Red Bull Kuwait is, no doubt, in the position to impress hundreds of gaming enthusiasts through hosting the globally popular event.
128 participants will battle it out in the online qualifiers from 14th – 17th October which will cut 120 gamers from the contest. Only the top eight most dedicated and throne-thirsty gamers can head to the on-ground National Final. This exciting part of the tournament will be held at Grand Cinemas Al Hamra on Friday 19th October. The winner of the Kuwait coveted title will head to the World Final in Brazil in November to compete against finalists from 15 other countries that have participated in the series all over the world.
The series originally kicked off in Greece seven months ago, and the competition has continued since then in Ireland, Slovenia, Kosovo, Portugal, Peru, Chile, and Mexico. Qualifiers will continue in United Arab Emirates, Colombia, and Jordan. And we promise you the Kuwait edition will be no less exciting. After all, we’ve got some of the most avid gamers in the world, right here in Kuwait!
The popular Red Bull Player One event in Kuwait is sponsored by Grand Cinemas, X-cite by Alghanim Electronics, Quality Net, PLG and Acqua Eva.
Brazil hosted the first ever Red Bull Player One final in 2014 and it will be a welcome return for the incredibly popular tournament which makes it possible for all League of Legends gaming enthusiasts to put their skills to the test.
