Player One Event Recap: Big Wins at CarmelFest!
Player One Esports recently had the opportunity to celebrate the 4th of July by participating in CarmelFest, a local festival held on July 3rd and 4th to celebrate America’s independence. We took the opportunity to meet local gamers and introduce them to all the fun we have to offer at P1E.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate was a huge hit at our tent. Anyone and everyone could step up and fight against friends, family, or even Player One staff members. Visitors of all ages shared their love of video games with us, from kids barely old enough to hold a controller to teens, parents, and even grandparents!
Still, how could it be a true P1E event without a little friendly competition? So of course we brought the thrill of esports to our double-wide tent by holding a Fortnite contest. We lined up television monitors and controllers and invited our guests to get their game on. The Fortnite battle was a huge success amongst the competitive crowd, and some teens hung out with us the entire day trying to get those extra eliminations in.
We had two big winners who each walked away with a $250 Visa card:
- Wednesday winner: Remington with 7 eliminations
- Thursday winner: Bailey with 8 eliminations
Thank you to the city of Carmel for the supportive partnership, and an extra-special thank you to everyone who braved the heat to play games with us at CarmelFest. The world of esports is relatively new, and being able to teach people about it was quite an experience. We can’t wait to do it again.
In case you couldn’t visit us in person, here are some pics from the event:
