BTX Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto, President: Masahiko Hashimoto, hereinafter referred to as BTX), which operates the Keiji e-sports federation, participated in the “1st Keiji e-sports competition” held on April 30. As the second step, on November 23rd (Wednesday), the Kyoto e-Sports Promotion Council (Representative: Japan e-Sports Association, Tokyo Chuo Ward, Representative Director: Ogata Ogata) will co-sponsor the “2nd Kansai Corporate Competition eSports Tournament”.
The first tournament was a great success, with 12 teams from 10 companies participating despite the situation where it was difficult to participate as a corporate team due to the corona wreck. We were able to close the curtain. Participating company teams deepened mutual exchanges and received many requests for the next event.
The 2nd tournament expanded the area of participation of companies to the Kansai area, and the purpose of the competition between companies was to create a sense of unity within the companies suffering from the corona disaster through e-sports, as well as to revitalize exchanges between participating companies. The event is held with the aim of revitalizing the local economy. The second tournament has been decided to be held as an event sponsored by Kyoto Prefecture, so the finals will be streamed online so that many people can watch the exciting battle.
This tournament will double the number of participating teams to 24 teams, and qualify for the team competition tournament. Even if you lose in the first round of the qualifying round, you will have a chance to participate in the final round in the repechage match. The main event will be a tournament with 8 teams competing for victory. Prizes (travel vouchers) are available for the winning team. The winning team will also challenge an exhibition match with Puyo Puyo professional esports players.
The live commentary on the day of the tournament will be cast by the official professional license holders of the Japan Esports Union (JeSU), “TOM players” and “Piponia players”, who will liven up the tournament.
