If you like high-stakes esports or just enjoy playing and seeing others play the hit game Summoners War [Free], then mark November 25th on your calendar because that's the day Summoners War World Arena Championship will take place. The best Summoners War players will make their way to the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles to find out who's the best of the best and, in the process, share $50,000, which isn't bad at all. 16 players will fight it out, and they come from pretty much across the world. Part of what I like about esports is precisely how global most of them are; it's fun seeing different styles clashing.

The World Arena Championship will also host a Summoners War convention of sorts, with the whole place transforming into Sky Island. If you're a fan of the game and live in the area, you should probably head that way (you can get free tickets here) and take part in all the contests and events while also taking home plenty of swag. If you can't make it to the venue, you can always watch the event on Twitch.

    I've heard this is pretty much the same game style as Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. True?

      Pretty much

      SUmmoner Wars is the genre/game that SWGoH copied. Summoners war is the only IAP game I play, and the best of its class. I have played both, summoners war excels.

        As someone who likes Star Wars and probably shouldn't play more than one game like this at a time, I don't really care which came first. Just wondering what I'm missing. It does look like fun but it also seems like a giant time sink, like most of these endless games.

        If you play and enjoy Galaxy, and prefer sci-fi to fantasy stick with heroes. Both are huge time sinks. Star Wars has a speed up system which can make play sessions very very short, both have a real time auto system but you have need a great team to use it and not die. Good auto teams are part of the strategy of Summoners. I like Star Wars, I like fantasy, I find summoners to be the better game as it’s generous and play sessions if free are long enough to be play sessions.

        Good to know. I'll try both again once I "finish" (ha ha) Star Trek Timelines
