Thanks for watching the Battle of Bucharest 2017 last weekend! We are pleased with how successful the tournament was and really happy to see so many positive comments.
The event was organized by the Lithuanian Esport Federation and hosted at the PGL Studios in Bucharest. They did a fantastic job with everything, which allowed us to stay focused on Bannerlord. ⚔️

In the DUEL category, Pierre Lecler – acclaimed as one of the best individual M&B players in the world – beat Jordan Gibson 7-6 in a nerve-racking final.
