    Mogul Launches Legacy Esports Fortnite: Pros vs Public

    Mogul has today opened registrations for their Legacy Esports Fortnite: Public vs Pros tournament series in partnership with Legacy Esports.

    Each week, members of the public can be pitted against professional Legacy Esports players to test their Fortnite skills and see if they too have what it takes to go pro. As well as taking part in this once in a lifetime opportunity, there is a Razer laptop and Razer Silver on the line for the victors.

    Registrations for this free tournament series are now open and consist of five weekly qualifier rounds on Thursday evenings, kicking off on 30 May. The top ten players from each qualifier decided on points will take their place in the final event on 4 July. Register here for the first qualifier:

    Each week, Legacy Esports Fortnite players will also compete in the matches and engage with their fans through Mogul’s tournament platform. Legacy Esports Chief Operating Officer, Nigel Smart, is pleased to be a part of the teams model on Mogul. “Legacy Esports is proud to be able to host their own tournament on Mogul, uncover new esports talents and boost the upcoming esports players. This tournament also allows us to connect with our fans like never before.”

    Mogul, who is committed to expanding the Australian esports scene, launched their Australian Apex Open last month with a prize pool of AU$35,000. Mogul’s Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer, Jamie Skella, is thrilled to support upcoming players in the flourishing Oceania scene.

    “This landmark event for Australian Fortnite players further reinforces Mogul’s devotion to supporting and empowering grassroots players amateur through to semi-pro by giving players a platform to test their skills, win prizes, and get noticed by top teams like Legacy Esports.”
