This years edition of the Red Bull League of Legends one versus one series, Solo Q, is set to return tonight in Ireland as the first of two open qualifiers begin to find the Irish champion who will go onto compete in the European regional finals, with an opportunity to qualify for the World Finals.
The new-look tournament puts a twist on a typical League of Legends esports match by pitting two players against one another in a bracket of 1v1 duels rather than the traditional 5v5 team-based matches. In 2019, Red Bull’s Player One tournament (now re-branded to Red Bull Solo Q) saw over 25,000 registrants from 29 countries battling for the title with Cork’s Mateusz ‘Pr0totype’ Kowalczyk winning the opportunity to represent Ireland at the Global Finals in Brazil. However this year, Red Bull are hoping to exceed the reach of the tournament to offer qualification to 35 countries.
Ireland’s RAID studios will be running the Ireland Qualifiers.
The Red Bull esports team have once again partnered up with Ireland’s premier tournament organiser, RAID Studios, to run the countries qualifiers as the hunt to find Ireland’s top Solo Q player gets under way. Sign ups are still open for tonight’s qualifier, however registration must be completed before 17:30 for any player wishing to compete in the first set of qualification stages. Sign up information is available HERE.
The tournament will also be broadcast live on Twtich at the channel and will start at 6pm (GMT+1). Your casters for the evening will be David Whyms and Tadhg ‘Celtic Tiger’ Brennan.
Best of luck to all competitors as they begin their journey to the international stage.
