Amazon’s been going pretty deep into gaming over the last few years be it through mobile or pc games. This weekend saw Amazon’s Champions of Fire take place in New York City. Unlike other esports events, this one was focussed on casual games and aimed to make competitive gaming more accessible overall. Yassuo was crowned champion at the event. He went home with a large portion of the $50,000 prizepool for the event. Watch a trailer for the event below:
