First esports event on top of the Eiffel Tower presented by Scuf Gaming
Scuf Gaming®, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, hosted a first-ever gaming competition on top of the Eiffel Tower on Tuesday 7 that can be re-watched here.
Born from friendly banter during live stream sessions between French superstar Gotaga and another extremely popular French gamer, Kamet0, this event was created to help them settle which of the two is the best FIFA player.
Often referred as “The French Monster”, Gotaga recently won the #Esports64 ESPN bracket, recognizing him as the most popular esports personality of the year. He will lead the “Les Mane” team while Kamet0 will lead the Kamet0 team. Each team competing will be composed of 11 players, all famous figures of the French gaming scene, such as Prime, Zack Nani, CODJordan, Broken, and more.
Since its creation nearly a decade ago, SCUF has been empowering gamers to use more of their fingers while gaming or during gameplay in a safe and ergonomic way which results in a significant performance and comfort increase. To ensure each team is fully prepared to play at their highest level, Scuf Gaming® is supplying all players with limited SCUF IMPACT controllers, customized in both team colours.
“Seeing where gaming and esports have gone is truly incredible. More than a decade ago, when my gaming career started, esports events were held in classrooms,” Corentin “Gotaga” Houssein said. “Fast forward to 2019 and having the opportunity to play on the Eiffel Tower is simply surreal and also very humbling. I couldn’t be happier to partner with SCUF for this event, which has been my controller partner for now over 5 years.”
“SCUF Gaming is excited to strengthen our commitment to Gotaga by making this event happen in one of the most spectacular locations in the world. We are proud to help deliver best in class controller performance with the SCUF Impact and will continue to give gamers the most premium experience worldwide. We first designed SCUF controllers 8 years ago to cater for the fast action and competitive demands of esports, so it’s amazing to see how far esports has come,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Founder of SCUF Gaming.
