The World Esports League is hosted by Technoblood Inc. and organized by the WSL Organising Committee in partnership with the International Esports Federation (IESF). Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, the India Qualifiers were held virtually, with top athletes from across the country competing and showcasing their skills and strategies. Popular fighting game TEKKEN7 and multiplayer online battle arena and third-person hero shooter video game Brawl Stars (3V3) will be part of the event.
Fighting game Tekken7 will be played in double-elimination format whereas athletes can compete in Brawl Stars in Single elimination format.
Prabhat Kumar, Director of Esports Federation of India said, “A tight-knit fight gaming community in India has extreme potential, one that we keep witnessing in many esports tournaments in the country. Tekken7 has a legacy of being the best fighting game and we are confident that esports athletes coming over from across the country will be putting up a spectacle of their own. Brawl Stars is a very popular game among children between 16-21 years of age and we will witness some budding superstars coming out as national champions and bringing laurels for our country at the Global Finals. This is a very interesting time for esports in India and we are already looking forward to our national qualifiers for WSL ’21.”
The winners of the India qualifiers will be selected to represent the country at the Global Finals of WSL 2021 which are scheduled to take place in Korea from December 16 to 19.
