Lenovo, a leading PC and smart device manufacturer, held the "Legion of Champions Series III" Grand Final on Saturday, the company said in a press release.
The three-day gaming extravaganza, which ends on Sunday, held in partnership with Intel, will see over 60 gaming talents from 11 markets across Asia Pacific brought together to be crowned LoC III Champion.
Following last year's successful "Legion of Champions Series II", the competition has expanded to include first-time competitors like India, Japan, and Korea, in addition to Hong Kong / Macau, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The champions from the 11 markets had already battled it out at multiple elimination rounds at the local level before coming to face-off in an intense international showdown at Central Plaza Ladprao, Bangkok.
After three days of intense competition, the champion team will take home a cash prize of USD$7,000 (Bt221,000) and USD$5,000 worth of Lenovo Legion Y530 notebooks, while the first and second runner up will be awarded USD$3,000 and USD$2,000 respectively.
During the previous LoC II last year, the tournament had welcomed participation from close to 7,000 gamers and 20,000 on-site attendees.
Such events have become crucial and valuable moments for Lenovo to interact with the gaming community and better understand their gaming needs and motivations.
The evolution of Lenovo Legion has been driven by feedback from the gaming community itself, with its latest innovations offering purposeful design to match the needs of the modern avid gamer.
Hundreds of gaming fans are expected to attend this year's Grand Final of "Legion of Champions Series III" in Bangkok to witness the battle and the birth of a new champion.
