PAX update from yours truly!
Just over a week ago, PAX came and went as it always has (at least since I’ve been involved in esports), leaving us all exhausted but with good memories. We attended to support our partner Samsung on the PAX Arena stage on Friday, as well as at their booth on Saturday. The games of choice were Fortnite and League of Legends. Our pro players teamed up with fans to play community games featuring some awesome prizes on the line.
We also played a Fortnite showmatch against the Chiefs, and a League of Legends showmatch against a mix of Chiefs/ORDER players. After a 40-minute back-and-forth, we came off second best against the Chiefs/Order mix, but plenty of entertainment was provided and everyone had a good time. At the end of the day, that’s what’s important, right?
On Sunday we had Overwatch players StolenPicnic and Noosh represent LGC at the Blizzard/Razer booth as well, playing 2v2 against PAX attendees.
I’d like to thank all the staff and players who represented Legacy Esports at PAX. It was a joy to see them interact positively with fans and with PAX goers who were new to esports. The players were especially accommodating, taking the time to help all who came up to compete. (though not everybody needed help – there were definitely a couple of strong gamers trying to win themselves some merch).
It was amazing to see the support for us and for Samsung, the booth and stage were packed throughout the two days, with a full crowd there to cheer us on in the showmatches.
Can’t wait to do it all again next year!
