Those who attended – or watched – MEO 2018 on the weekend were part of gaming history, with the event going down at the country’s biggest ever esports event.
Over 12,000 people traipsed through Melbourne Park over last weekend for everything esports, including the finals of the Overwatch Contenders Season 2 and League of Legends Oceanic Pro League 2018.
As well as those two finals, attendees were able to compete in many yet-to-be-released games in the JB Hi-Fi Game On Zone, as well as compete in open tournaments for games like Overwatch and Rocket League. Of course, there was also Fortnite freeplay, influencer tournaments, and a dance competition.
JB Hi-Fi Group CEO Richard Murray said in a press release: “It was fantastic to see how much fans enjoyed the event. The energy level and excitement in the JB Hi-Fi Game On Zone over the weekend was amazing. Delivering such a genuinely engaging experience for Melbourne Esports Open visitors was only possible with the support of so many passionate JB Hi-Fi team members and our suppliers.”
We can’t wait to see what next year’s event brings to the table.
