A new place for the Lyon e-Sport 2018

We want to continuously improve our events, and that is why we decided to add new elements for this Lyon e-Sport 2018. To do so, we decided to relocate! The Lyon e-Sport 2018 will take place in a new venue, fitting our new ambitions, your expectations and the development of esport.

This is why we are waiting for you on the 16, 17 and 18 of February at the Lyon Convention Center ("Cité des Congrès" in French) ! This huge place will make us able to produce an even greater and more qualitative show than we did previously. We will be able to host much more people than the previous years. Moreover, this new place gives us the possibility to set up a lot of novelties in order to turn the event into a real esport festival.


On the tournament side: Better conditions and higher cashprize

As usual, the event will host a League of legends tournament open to both amateur and professional teams. Last year, 64 teams competed and Gamers Origins found the path to victory in a week-end full of surprises.

This new place will allow us to offer more space to players. Thanks to it, they will be able to play in an even more comfortable environment, allowing them to focus on being the best possible ingame. Our internet network get some upgrades as well, with a 2Gb symmetrical broadband and one IP per player, in order to offer the best conditions for both players and streamers.

The League of Legends tournament will keep its usual format. After a group stage involving every teams, they will be spread into 3 different tournaments: Pro, Elite and Amateur according to their results. This format guarantees both a chance to try your luck versus the best teams, as well as not being directly eliminated, giving you the chance to play competitive matches with something to win until the end of the week-end, regardless of your level.

Finally, in order to increase the stakes and to reward players even more, the Lyon e-Sport 2018 will come with a higher cashprize. The Pro tournament will be rewarded with a 25 000€ cashprize (5 000€ more than last year) and we now add 5 000€ for the Elite tournament. The Amateur one will be rewarded with numerous gifts other than money.

We hope all of the above will multiply the motivation of players to give their best! Let’s note as well that it is not impossible to see some additional surprises on the tournament side this year…
