Over the past few years, the popularity of Twitch Con has increased significantly. Every year, the convention just gets bigger and bigger. This year is no different. Twitch has already announced plans for a 2 million dollar tournament for four games over a three day period.
Starting on Friday the 27th of September and ending on Sunday the 29th of September, Fortnite, Apex Legends, League of Legends, and Teamfight Tactics will all share the massive prize pool. Multiple different tournaments will be held all with different formats.
This is all part of the Twitch Rival series. Twitch Rivals is a series of competitive events designed from the ground up for Twitch streamers and viewers. 2019 will include over 100 event days, featuring new formats, games, interactive Twitch Extensions, and millions of dollars in prize money.
Twitch Rivals will feature four games, with one day dedicated to each game. Opening day will kick off with a Fortnite competition taking place during primetime with the biggest Twitch streamers facing off against competitors that qualified during the day—some of whom will be picked from the live audience!
Day Two of TwitchCon will feature League of Legends, bringing back the Rumble on the Rift from TwitchCon San Jose as well as the rivalry between North America and Europe from the showmatch at TwitchCon Berlin. While this action is taking place, eight Open Bracket Teamfight Tactics lobbies will be active at once, featuring Partners and Affiliates from the TwitchCon audience. The winners of this Open Bracket will face off against the biggest Teamfight Tactics superstars in the afternoon finals.
On Day Three of TwitchCon, Twitch Rivals will conclude with a $500,000 Apex Legends tournament with custom lobbies on LAN. Five Stream Teams will take to the stage to prove themselves, while 45 Twitch Partners will take a seat to challenge them in each match. There’s cash on the line for each match and a bounty on every Stream Team’s head.
All of these events will be streamed on twitch.tv/twitchrivals and on the competing streamer’s channels. More information about the rules and scoring will be published closer to the time.
