August 27, 2020 -- Today, Bud Light Seltzer announced a multi-game esports tournament featuring some of Twitch’s top streamers and personalities. The 16-player tournament will be over the course of three days, starting September 1st, to crown the world’s best gamer on September 4. In addition, Norwegian DJ, Kygo, will be performing a halftime show on the final day of the tournament.
“As the Official Hard Seltzer of eSports, Bud Light Seltzer is providing gamers a unique experience.” said Joe Barnes, Director, Bud Light Sports Marketing. “We’re constantly finding new ways to invest in this growing industry and felt that Battle of the Best is giving esports fans what it was missing: a Super Bowl.”
Players will compete in four different games, Call of Duty®: Warzone®, Halo 3, Golf with Friends and Fall Guys, and continue on in the tournament based on a point scale.
The Grand Finals will have 12 players competing in Call of Duty®: Warzone® in teams of four, with the top three players positioned as team captains who will draft participants to squad up. The bottom team will be eliminated in the 1st half, followed by the halftime show. The 2nd half will consist of the eight remaining players in a 2v2 elimination bracket, followed by 4 final players competing in a 1v1 grand finale to establish the winner.
The Bud Light Seltzer Battle of the Best winner will be crowned Bud Light Seltzer’s Best Gamer title, and receive a custom, one of a kind trophy designed to represent the four games played in the tournament, with Bud Light Seltzer colors.
“I’m really excited to be performing for Bud Light Seltzer’s Battle of the Best tournament,” said Kygo. “Due to the craziness of today’s circumstances, live concerts obviously can’t happen, so this is the perfect way to connect with fans and put on an incredible and unexpected show.”
