Victorious Gaming have announced the addition of European events to its highly successful League of Legends tournament program. Victorious Gamings first EU West tournament is Saturday 6/23 at 4pm Central European time.This expansion to the European market comes seven months after the launch of Victorious Gaming’s prized events for League of Legends North American market which engaged 25,000 participants in the last 30 days.
“We are going to take things a bit slow” says Scott Miller, Co-Founder of Victorious Gaming. “Initially we will start with one EUWest tournament per week and evaluate the interest from the players and challenges associated with overseas events.”
Victorious Gaming is a community-driven organization that was co-founded in November 2013 by Scott ‘Elder Dreams’ Miller and Kevin ‘Erebus’ Wallace. Both Miller and Wallace have a long history in community development and event hosting. As fans of League of Legends and unhappy with the laser focus on high skill level tournaments, they started a small hobby project which is now one of eSports’ largest tournament platforms with a mission to provide ‘eSports for Everyone’.
Rather than focus on traditional team based tournaments, Miller and Wallace created a novel approach to tournament creation. The Victorious Gaming tournament system matches players based on their skill level. Combine this with multiple simultaneous tournaments and players of every skill level are able to compete in tournaments that are traditionally only available to the top 1% of players.
“Our first goal has always been to build a safe and fun place for people to enjoy their favorite games” says Kevin Wallace, Co-Founder of Victorious Gaming. He goes on to say: “along the way we realized that we could create fun and accessible tournament play for everyone.”
Victorious Gaming’s first EU West tournament will take place on Saturday June 28th at 4:00PM CET (Central European Time) with a prize pool of 160,000 Riot Points (in-game currency) and 20 Triumphant Ryze Skins.
Victorious Gaming also hosts daily tournaments for the North American League of Legends audience with 200,000 Riot Points (in-game) currency and 25 Triumphant Ryze Skins.
