ETG11 SETS RECORD ATTENDANCE FOR LAN EVENT IN LONG ISLAND
On Saturday, January 16th, Elite Tournament Gaming hosted their 17th LAN tournament in beautiful Long Island, New York. 34 teams arrived at the event ready to compete for the up-to $9K+ prize pool.
Team Vigor, captained by long time ETG competitor Profeezy, took the event by storm not dropping a single series against some of the fiercest competition ETG has ever seen. Team Vigor swept through top local competitors to meet team CLG in the grand finals. A team such as CLG, stacked to the brim with pro talent like Methodz and SpaceLY, would be any gamblings mans bet. But when it comes to LAN, anything is possible. Team Vigor took the grand finals 3-0 defeating some of gamings most elite competitors. Besides being filled with pride, they also filled their pockets from a nice fat check!
It's incredible to see how far we have come in such a short amount of time. Seeing 34 teams lined up outside our venue on Saturday was not only exciting, but extremely humbling and truly a testament to all our hard work and dedication.
As far as the future of ETG is concerned, my partner and I have had some very serious, long discussions and we believe we are ready to take ETG to the next level - whether that be a national LAN organization, or simply hosting large scale LAN events in the tri-state area. We're pretty much preparing to branch out from the local scene and become something bigger - perhaps similar to what MES is doing right now. That's our goal.
Whatever the future holds for ETG, there is no denying their elite status within East Coast eSports. With an outstanding reputation within the community and a drive to consistently evolve with each event, the sky seems to be the limit for Elite Tournament Gaming.
