There is such a thing as competitive mobile gaming, and it’s growing. Growing fast enough for Amazon to sponsor Mobile Masters, an upcoming eSports tournament, in Las Vegas this weekend.
This year the Mobile Masters Invitational tournament will revolve around World of Tanks Blitz, a free-to-play multiplayer strategy game from Wargaming. It includes over 250 real WWII vehicles and 23 different battle arenas, and boasts a realistic physics and damage engine. Wargaming also swears in their press release World of Talks Blitz isn’t the type of game you have to pay to win — it’s possible to beat the matches without paying microtransactions.
Presented in partnership with eSports productions and ESL, MMLV aims to increase opportunities for players and viewers to enjoy mobile competitive gaming on a larger scale. Viewers can witness an epic war unfold in the World of Tanks Blitz double elimination tournament on Saturday, October 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. PT. With a $10,000 prize for the winning team, four notable teams HateUsMore, LoveUsMore, Eclipse, and Cobras must work together as they engage in fierce, strategic tank combat to achieve victory. The Grand Final will boast the best from the upper and lower brackets where they will battle it out in a best of five.
If you’re in the Las Vegas, Nevada area, attendance at MMLV will be free for everyone…but if you live elsewhere, the entire tournament will be streamed live on Twitch.
