A UK player has progressed to the Summoners War: Sky Arena 2019 World Finals.
Baus finished as runner-up at the SWC 2019 Europe Cup in Paris on the weekend, losing out to Rosith from France in the final. It was a tense final, with Baus going 2-0 up but eventually falling 3-2.
Rosith walked away with the $10,000 main prize. However, both players have qualified for the World Finals which take place on October 26th, again in Paris.
Game developer Com2uS announced that mobile turn-based strategy game Summoners War: Sky Arena had concluded its SWC 2019 Europe Cup, which saw eight players advance from the group stages back in July.
Entrants from France, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden and England participated in the cup.
All of the Europe Cup matches were broadcast worldwide in seven different languages – English, French, German, Italian, Russian, Korean and Japanese. The live streaming video surpassed 100,000 cumulative views on YouTube and Twitch.
Com2uS held the Americas Cup in LA, USA on August 31st and continued with the Europe Cup in Paris, France on September 7th. The Asia-Pacific Cup will be held on September 28th.
A total of 8 players will advance to the World Finals, and the overall winner will be recognised as the best Summoners War player with the total prize of $100,000.
As a competitive mobile game, Summoners War joins other games played competitively in this format, including the likes of PUBG, Vainglory, Clash Royale and others. Vainglory scaled back its esports support earlier this year.
