Amazon’s Mobile Masters Event Takes Place June 23-24

Amazon’s Mobile Masters takes place in Seattle, Wash. on June 23-24, the company announced Thursday. The popular tournament brings amateur and professional esports players from around the globe together to compete for a $100,000 prize pool.

This year’s competition features the fighting game “Power Rangers: Legacy Wars,” free-to-play tower defense title “Survival Arena,” the massively multiplayer online game “World of Tanks Blitz,” and multiplayer first-person shooter “Critical Ops.”

“Critical Ops” developer Critical Force is apparently using this opportunity to unveil a new spectator client for the event. It promises to give viewers a complete overview of the match, according to a press release. It will also help shoutcasters commentate and create stories around the game. “Viewers will have real-time information about the weapon composition and economy of both teams as well as player positioning on the map,” said “Critical Force” community and esports manager Kasperi Kivistö.

In addition, developer nWay will host a variety of in-game tournaments for “Power Rangers: Legacy Wars” from Thursday, June 21 through Sunday, June 24. Prizes include a Nintendo Switch, Xbox One S, Fire TV, and an Amazon Echo.
