The event features a pool of giveaways and prizes valued at $10,000 that will be split equally between the two games. It will be hosted at The Foundry at the SLS Las Vegas on November 20. There will also be a cosplay contest with $5,000 worth of prizes up for grabs. The tournament will feature both a pro bracket and amateur bracket.
Those interested in participating can sign up at the official Battle on the Strip website. UMV is also hosting online qualifiers on November 12. The top four placements from each game will receive invitations to the final in Vegas, with UMV covering flights from anywhere in North America and one night of accommodation at SLS.
Battle on the Strip will be live streamed starting at 11AM PST / 2PM EST on November 20 via Twitch. This the second event in the BoTS series. The first featured a Dota 2 tournament, with the team placing first scoring $25,000 in cash and prizes. Ultimate Media Ventures hopes to continue bringing out various esports events and tournaments on a monthly basis.
“Building on the successful inaugural October event, we’re thrilled to deliver even more exciting programming and special appearances to the esports community with our November installment of Battle on the Strip,” said UMV CEO, Jon Bukosky. “This time around, we’re focusing on two amazing competitive titles, showcasing our fresh approach to creating a unique esports lifestyle experience, with something new and different every month.”
