Press release:
Battle of Bucharest, the first live Mount & Blade esports event, is already over – but the echoes of its battle cries can still be heard around the world! 20 players from 10 countries competed for $10,000 in prize money as well as for the Audience Choice Award. 120,000 unique viewers watched the live stream on May 20, 2017 through Facebook LIVE, YouTube LIVE and Twitch, with the overall daily reach exceeding 1,200,000 people – the tournament was covered by international media in 14 different languages.

Team Castellans emerged victorious in the TEAM category after a thrilling and surprising final against Apis Europae Yellow, who had previously knocked out French side, Unity, in a semi-final upset. Third place was won by Apis Europae Black, a sister-team of the runners-up. In the DUEL category, Pierre Lecler – acclaimed as one of the best individual M&B players in the world – beat Jordan Gibson 7-6 in a nerve-racking final. Mark Glasspole won the playoff for third place — and also the Audience Choice Award, presented by GOG.com (based on 2,000 votes from the audience).

 “We are pleased with the success of the first live Mount & Blade tournament and its reception among the community and press”, stated Ali Erkin, managing director at TaleWorlds. “In particular, we are grateful to the Lithuanian Esport Federation for organizing everything while the TaleWorlds team remains focused on Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord”.
