iBUYPOWER CS:GO Invitational Tournament Summer
City of Industry, CA – May 22, 2015 – At iBUYPOWER, we couldn’t imagine a world without gaming, and frankly we wouldn’t want to. It is our belief that competitive gaming has a bright future and will push the gaming industry far beyond its current limits. That is why we have always been a proud supporter of E-Sports, its fans, and its players. Today, iBUYPOWER is continuing to expand our E-Sports legacy by announcing the 2nd IBP E-Sports Invitational Tournament!
“We were thrilled with the success of the last IBP Invitational CS:GO Tournament, so we are excited to join iBUYPOWER for a second time, bringing Intel’s technology to the enthusiastic CS:GO community”, said Intel Client Marketing Director, Steve R. Peterson. “We love to see the world’s best gamers, going head-to-head with one another, to determine who best masters Counter Strike Global Offensive.
We are excited to again be partnering with Intel, who made our first IBP Invitational such a success. Together, we will be bringing you the top North American teams, as well as the champion from the MSI x IBP Qualifier competing as a wild card entry. These top tier athletes will be competing head-to-head in Counter Strike: Global Offensive, the most popular competitive FPS.
“MSI is a huge supporter of Esports and is proud to be partnering with iBUYPOWER for the 2nd IBP Summer Invitational CS:GO Tournament”, Said Esports and Community Manager, Eugene Kuo. “With so much talent in the CS:GO community, we can’t wait to see who comes out on top this time around.”
However, at iBUYPOWER, we’re always looking to outdo ourselves, which is why we’ve raised the stakes at this year’s tournament by doubling the prize pot. That’s right, we’re increasing the prize pool to $10,000.
“It’s without a doubt that CS:GO is exciting to watch. We wanted to bring that excitement back again and give the fans a second iBUYPOWER Invitational” – Darren Su, Vice President of iBUYPOWER
