Amazon is preparing another Mobile Masters Invitational, its big two-day mobile gaming tournament, and this time around we are getting different games in the mix. The previous Invitational back in June included Summoners War, Vainglory, and Hearthstone tournaments, but this time around only Vainglory remains. The new additions are World of Tanks Blitz (Free), Critical Ops (Free), and Power Rangers: Legacy Wars (Free). The upcoming Invitational moves to the Millennial Esports Arena in downtown Las Vegas and will take place on October 14th and 15th, with the winners grabbing a share of the $80,000 prize. The previous invitational had some crazy tournament rules, but this time around it looks like the rules are pretty standard.
The Blitz tournament is a double elimination one with $10,000 in prize money, the Critical Ops will see two teams of five competing for the same amount of prize money, and Power Rangers will see players across North America compete for, again, a share of $10,000. The biggest tournament is the Vainglory one, with 6 teams from North America, the EU, and Korea battling it out for $50,000 in prize money. The event will be, of course, live-streamed on Amazon’s Twitch channel. I’m glad to see Amazon getting more and more into mobile gaming, and events like the Mobile Masters Invitational are a great way to show how competitive mobile games can be.
