Irish gamers will have the chance to mix it with some of the country’s best esports pros this month as the world’s largest mobile esports open competition comes to Ireland for the very first time. Now in its sixth season globally, Red Bull M.E.O. sees players from over 30 countries compete, with incredible prizes for the winners.
Red Bull M.E.O. is a free competition, open to participants of all levels, and is a rare opportunity for casual mobile gamers to take on established professionals from the Irish circuit. The most popular mobile esports open internationally, this is the first year that the competition will be open to Irish gamers.
The two chosen titles in which players can compete are Clash Royale and PUBG Mobile. Clash Royale is open to individual players, and will be played in a standard single elimination tournament format. The first qualifier for Clash Royale takes place on January 13th with the second to follow on January 21st. The top 4 players from each qualifier will proceed to the grand finals.
PUBG Mobile, which is open to duos (teams of 2 players), will follow a similar format. Two online qualifiers will take place on January 14th and January 20th respectively. Eight teams will in turn qualify for the live final, with four teams proceeding from each round.
On Saturday January 27th, the Red Bull M.E.O. Live Final will take place in the Sugar Club in Dublin, where Ireland’s top gamers will battle it out to claim the Red Bull M.E.O. title for the first time on these shores.
