LAGOS – August 25, 2014.
BATTLE OF THE GAME LORDS 2014: GAMERS UNLEASHED,
brought to you by Naija Games Evo (Titeboi Entertainment & Sporedust)
and Major Gaming League™ the September 19th and 20th
with the mission of ranking the best players
Lagos has to offer in console games.
Pro gaming events have been on the rise in recent times in Nigeria particularly in the Lagos area with various competitions holding almost quarterly.
BATTLE OF THE GAME LORDS: GAMERS UNLEASHED will be another milestone in this virgin entertainment and sports industry as we take steps to catalogue and rank gamers in Lagos over a period of 2 days. We will have gamers playing in 2 major categories of games; fighting and soccer to carry the title of “Game Lord” and walk away with brand new PS4 Consoles, cash prizes of N30,000 and N15,000 respectively plus other consolation prizes.
Lagos, Nigeria, most populous city in Nigeria, the second fas
test growing city in Africa and the seventh fastest growing city in the world, comprises of vibrant youths who play all genres of game and do not realise that this actually holds a potential of becoming a source of income just like other professional sports such as boxing, tennis and football. It seems obvious now that it is time that gaming steps out of the shadowy gaming houses into a real structured and competitive sport giving them a platform to compete on a state, and eventually, global level.
Each game has its own subculture and its own meta-culture but for now BATTLE OF THE GAME LORDS aims at ranking players by a series of competitions and matches that will be taking place throughout the year in preparation towards the annual MGL Video Games Championships at the end of each year.
People will finally see that gaming is a respectable sport. Gaming is becoming way more mainstream and Naija Games Evo and Major Gaming League™ with this maiden BATTLE OF THE GAME LORDS is out to make Nigerian youths cash in on this and appreciate its prevalence and importance.
The competition holds at this year’s annual Lagos Comic Con which is in its fourth year:
DATE: 19th and 20th September, 2014.
