Rise of the Legion will be a LAN tournament that will take place in Kolkata, India. Organized by The Esports Club, the brand has partnered with the likes of Lenovo and Intel, which resulted in an event whose prize pool is 2,00,000 INR. According to the information, the first CS2 tournament will take place at the Raajkutir Swabhumi, and it will begin on October 29.
Naturally, the first Counter-Strike 2 tournament in India will have a lot of fans, and it will be important for the popularization of the game. So, let’s learn more about the Rise of Legion: Kolkata.
The First CS2 tournament in India – Rise of Legion: Kolkata
Some CS2 fans may not know that Rise of Legion is actually a tournament series. The last version of the competition was in Hyderabad, but most CS fans may not remember it because the event focused more on Valorant. However, this is no longer the case because Counter-Strike 2 became available, and it’s one of the hottest games in the world right now. Besides focusing on the game, Rise of Legion: Kolkata will also allow fans to meet their favorite players, have access to a special experience zone, and so on.
Interestingly, people who want to take part in this CS2 tournament can do that by signing up for the Open Qualifiers. Rise of Legion: Kolkata allows users to put their skills to the test and win a sport for the LAN finals.
Even though the qualifiers allow people to earn a spot in the event, it will not be easy because teams will play in a Bo1 single-elimination format. In the end, the best 4 squads will receive an invitation to the Rise of Legion: Kolkata CS2 tournament.
What else can we expect from this event?
Even though this will be the first CS2 tournament in India, Rise of Legion: Kolkata will give us access to a lot of other things. People who can visit the venue will be able to play Mortal Kombat 1, the latest game of one of the most legendary series. There will also be a Valorant Death Match 5v5 event, as well as a FIFA 24 tournament with a 25K INR reward. The same prize pool will also be available for all other events.
