[battle.lef.lt]The Battle of Bucharest is the first live Mount & Blade esports tournament. The event is organized by the Lithuanian Esport Federation in partnership with the game’s developers TaleWorlds Entertainment. The finals of the tournament are hosted at the PGL Studio in Bucharest, Romania with the support of Intel and G-Core Labs.
20 players will compete live in Bucharest, Romania on May 20 in the team mode, and 8 players will compete in the duel mode – playing Mount & Blade: Warband. Mount & Blade: Warband has a long history of competitive play, spanning right back to its closed beta phase in 2009. A strong and resilient core of players have carved out a rich history, tracking the rise and fall of great players and teams.
Today, the competitive scene is comprised of thousands of players, many with hundreds and hundreds of hours of playtime logged, boasting a level of skill that it is both impressive to witness and fearsome to oppose. With The Battle of Bucharest, our intention is to pave the path for the competitive aspect of the game to develop further, offering the top players a chance to showcase their talents to the wider community all over the world.
We're really excited to be partnered with the Lithuanian Esport Federation and PGL to bring this great event to the community! If you think you have what it takes or just want to find out more visit: http://battle.lef.lt/
