It’s been a while since we did not report Facet, the main worldwide platform for competitive online games and international tournament organizers. Let’s go, are we going? Because there is a lot to cover. They have just launched their first collegiate programs for Counter Strike: World Offensive, League of Legends, and Valorant. All three will see tournaments, offering opportunities for college players from all levels to compete. These leagues will join the existing Collegiate Facet division, which also recently associated Ubisoft on the first collegiate e-sport league for _tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Seages, _ and will have a combined prizepool of $ 55,000. Registrations are open here, so check if you are in the Esport scene.
High-level players can try the CS: Go League Premier League for a chance at the $ 25,000 prizepool, while a contending level will see a regular Swiss season of ten weeks, then an eliminatory slice between the best teams for a prizepool of $ 5,000. This is a lot of new opportunities for North America CS: Go Community, which already sees nearly 500,000 players compete each month on Faceit. We are sure they are delighted.
The lol league will see a different format specifically to encourage regional and local rivalries, which seems to us to be a bad idea, but good, if it works for physical sports. In any case, the league of legends the invitation series will invite teams from across the United States and Canada to participate in state (and provincial) state invitations. The winners of this category will pass at the regional invitation championships and will compete $ 5,000 in prices, and the regional winners will reach the Field Follower Collegiate and will play $ 10,000. In other words, it is an arc of tournament. With real money attached. Excellent!
The valoranto League will also offer premier and contend levels, the first players competing for $ 10,000 in prices. It’s great enough in itself. You know what is more awesome, however? The mission faces to “develop ecosystems for multiplayer competitive experiences, design and perform online and offline competitive experiences in partnership with publishers and colleges.» They build a base for e-sport directly in our back yard. Now it’s cool.
