The inaugural M2: Mobile Masters Invitational 2017, held at the Prudential Center in New Jersey on June 23-24, has come and gone and all of us at Com2us are still on cloud nine from the unexpected response from our fans. Quite literally, we stole the show from the rest. We came, we saw, and we conquered.
The live broadcast of the tournament on Twitch was ranked in the top 5 most viewed on the day of the event, recording over 35,000 concurrent views. Since then, the rebroadcast has notched a further 19,000 views. On-site, the fans showed up in droves with some 6,000 attending the event. The cheers were loud and the excitement, palpable.
The Mobile Masters Invitational was the first large-scale global esport tournament for Summoners War and featured eight of the best players from around the world competing for a total prize money of $25,000. Top-ranked player Fwa (Joua Xiong), ultimately took home the top prize, blitzing his way into the finals to face underdog KoopaTroopa787 (Josh Peters) for the second time throughout the 6-hour competition. Although fans had anticipated an easy victory for the Wisconsin native, KoopaTroopa nearly orchestrated an upset during the semifinals when the Air Force veteran from Minnesota recorded a win against Fwa in the best of 3 match format.
The tournament followed a double elimination format where defeated players were given a chance to compete in the tournament once again through a speed-running challenge called Dungeon Run. Defeated players were given a chance to stay in the competition by completing the dungeons in the shortest amount of time.
Com2us’ participation in the M2 tournament comes at a time when we are looking to continue to advance our efforts as an emerging leader in the growing mobile esports space. We will continue to hold offline tournaments in Asia, including South Korea, the western/eastern regions of the United States, Indonesia, and Taiwan, to further solidify Summoners War as a premier mobile e-sports game. In addition to the regional tournaments, we plan to hold a world competition in the second half of the year so stay tuned for more details in the coming months!
