NORTH EAST LEAGUE OF LEGENDS TOURNAMENT $2500 GRAND PRIZE

Over $6000 in cash awards will be given throughout the North East League of Legends Tournament held During this coming weekend’s ConnectiCon, League of Legends players can participate in qualifiers and a top 16 tournament ending in a $2500 prize for the winners. Other cash prizes will be awarded for second through eighth places. The tournament will take place Friday, July 10th through Sunday, July 12th in Exhibit Hall B, with the final round happening in the Main Events Hall.

League of Legends is an online multiplayer game played in teams. Players must work together in order to successfully battle through several battlefields and game modes. This game relies on strategy and teamwork. The winners will have to exemplify both of these qualities in addition to relying on their own ingenuity.

All computers and graphics cards will be provided by the convention, although players are allowed to bring their own peripherals. Voice chat will also be provided by ConnectiCon. For more information visit www.connecticon.org/events or join the facebook event “North East League of Legends $6,000 Tournament.” There are still team slots left for the qualifiers. Interested teams may sign up on the ConnectiCon events page.
