It’s about time Magic!
I was informed this morning that Magic the Gathering would be trying its hand at esports! The much-loved game of millions across the world is evolving; offering up to a $10,000,000 prize pool; termed by the company as A New World of Competitive Magic.
I cannot wait!
Introducing Magic Esports!
The Magic Esports trailer is a little cringy, but I’d be lying if I didn’t sit at my desk holding back my tears of excitement and joy to the idea that I’d be able to combine my love of gaming with my love of Magic the Gathering:
According to the Magic Esports website; “In 2019, we’re elevating the original strategy card game to a new stratosphere of excitement and exposure”.
Magic Esports Starter Kit:
Magic the Gathering is also offering esports starter kits, which seems like a cool way on blowing up interest early, provided you’re already on Magic Arena. If you are, you’re in luck, it’s time to cash in on your patience and support of the new platform.
The Mythic Invitational: PAX Tournament
While I know next to nothing about the South African and international competitive Magic the Gathering scene, the development of an offering that opens those doors is exciting! There’s little on the coming Mythic Invitational right now, but we’ve got until next year to speculate.
The Mythic Championships is the new flagship competitions for MTG Arena esports and tabletop Magic
Let the games begin!
If you couldn’t tell already, I’m very excited about this announcement and I’m looking forward to fully embracing this evolution and updating you all on my journey, let the games begin!
