While we’re sure those of you who took part are still recovering from an epic weekend at MLG Anaheim, a true eSports fan never rests. This weekend, California State Polytechnic University of Pomona is hosting the GIGABYTE eSports LAN – a 24-player invitational tournament and open LAN festival with contests, prizes, opportunities to meet (and play with) the pro gamers, and more!
The GIGABYTE eSports LAN (GESL) is a massive PC gaming event that features a 24-player StarCraft II invitational tournament with appearances by some top pro-gamers from both the West and from Korea. But the tournament isn’t the only attraction. “Spectators can engage in a 3-day PC gaming experience where they can meet and greet professional players and teams, compete in daily contests, talk to sponsors at the many sponsor booths we will have, win products from our daily raffles that total $25,000+ in hardware, compete in mini-tournaments…play StarCraft II against players like DeMusliM, and attend daily sponsor workshops to learn about new technology and get a chance to win product. If you’d rather play games than watch, we'll be having a Bring Your Own PC (BYOC) section by LANFest sponsored by Intel. LANFest will feature mini-tournaments, tons of prizes, and many contests such as the CPU Magazine Case Mod Contest, where over $2000 in hardware prizes will be awarded. Overall, this is truly a great spectator experience for eSports fans, casual gamers, and computer enthusiasts. Our goal for attendees is to always have something to do while at the GESL.”
The event will run from June 15-17 and will take place at the California Polytechnic University of Pomona (3810 W. Temple Ave., Pomona, CA 91768). Doors open at 9 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. each day. It costs $15.00 to enter as a spectator, and $35.00 to enter if you’re bringing your own computer for LANFest.
