The battle bus made its first and last Welsh tour stop in Swansea’s Liberty Stadium for the third qualifying round of the tournament. Players travelled from Swansea and beyond for their chance to battle it out for a spot in the Stamford Bridge Finals for their chance to win £25,000.
It’s true that nothing gets a crowd warmed up like a dance contest and whether fans were asked to do their best Floss or Orange Justice, they definitely delivered.
Our Fortnite battleground was set to test the skills of Welsh gamers as well as our special guest, Swansea Star Joe Rodon. Walking through the battle bus the excitement of both fans and gamers was evident as they prepared to play in a tournament that both brings the game to life and tests the skills of gamers right across the nation.
Dawoud Dawoud, Event Caster who also attended the Brighton leg of the tournament agreed that the talent in Liberty System paralleled that of The Amex’s Stadium. Dawoud commented: “Swansea was one hell of an action packed event. Players were fighting tooth and nail to qualify for the final and whether it was aiming for the most kills on the day, or going after the ever elusive Victory Royale, they did not disappoint.”
Speaking on Callum Griffiths who topped Swansea’s leaderboard, Dawoud said “Callum was by far one of the best players at the tournament in Swansea. He was extremely aggressive in the early stages of the game, going for kills when no one else would and never shying away from a fight. It’s clear that when the the going gets tough, so does he, overcoming any confrontation with incredible editing skills and thinking outside of the box.”
The next round of the tournament takes place in Dublin’s Croke Park. Who will join the list of finalists making their way to Stamford Bridge on 31st March to claim the grand prize of £25,000?
