HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas has hosted more than 300 events, but things are going to have to change for the foreseeable future. Due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, HyperX Esports is transitioning to an online format, bringing it to the comfort of home.
All in-person tournaments are suspended until the end of March, but that could change. We’re almost at the end of the month and the coronavirus has not slowed down. So, count on HyperX Esports streaming for a while longer. Allied Esports sees the need for gaming tournaments though and will bring the tournaments to all gamers.
Allied Esports stated as much in a recent press release. “To continue providing to the esports community that the Arena has built both locally and nationally since 2018 and because of the onset of COVID-19, the venue has embraced their roots and will continue to deliver premier entertainment for gamers in the United States with the transition of moving all of their tournaments online.”
A lot of organizations are moving all of their tournaments online, but differently than HyperX Esports Arena. Rather than keeping online tournaments local, HyperX Esports will open their competitions to all U.S. regions. That means fans of Fortnite, Overwatch and League of Legends can compete in online gaming tournaments.
Allied Esports organizes the online tournaments to bring an authentic, competitive experience to the home of gamers. In addition, these will broadcast on Allied Esports and HyperX Las Vegas official Twitch channels. Here’s your chance to get yourself noticed on a nationwide stage! The winners will take home part of a $500-$1,000 prize pool, which is a nice bonus.
