Red Bull Solo Q, the official 1v1 League of Legends tournament, has revealed details of its 2022 return. National tournaments and International qualifiers kick off in March giving amateur players the opportunity to compete at the highest level and offering League of Legends fans a unique spectacle. The top players will compete at the Red Bull Solo Q World Finals later this year, battling for bragging rights as the world’s best amateur 1v1 League of Legends player.

Red Bull Solo Q adds a unique twist to traditional League of Legends play. The format consists of 1v1 duels, where the player must draw “First Blood,” take down the opponent’s tower, or reach a 100-minion score to claim victory. This format tests players in a completely different way than the traditional 5v5 and also gives fans the opportunity to see champions and strategies they may not otherwise. Red Bull Solo Q is built for players who want to develop their solo skills and fans looking for fast, high-intensity battles.

Red Bull Solo Q returns from a successful 2021 season, which saw more than 55.000 registrants compete across 33 different countries. The tournament is founded on giving solo amateur players the opportunity to showcase their abilities on the biggest of stages, against the best, while representing their country, and acting as a springboard for even greater League of Legends success.

The tournament circuit is kicking off in March, with national tournaments spread throughout the year and across 25 countries, alongside International Qualifiers in various regions giving players a second chance to progress. The champion of each event will earn the chance to reach the highest level of the competition, of the Red Bull Solo Q World Finals. The Red Bull Solo Q World Finals gives these players the biggest of stages to show their skills, following last year’s highlight event which took place live at BMW Welt in Munich. At this year’s Red Bull Solo Q World Finals players will battle for pride and notoriety, hoping to follow the footsteps of Red Bull Solo Q Champions who have continued their success in the League of Legends scene.

Each participating country will have multiple national qualifiers, taking place throughout the year. National qualifier winners will then head into a playoff stage that will crown one national champion. Players in the international qualifier will go through similar steps to identify those summoners that will head to the World Finals, where players from all over the world will battle for the title of Red Bull Solo Q 2022 champion, engraving their name in League of Legends history.

The 2021 Champion, Mads ‘Viggomopsen’ Mikkelsen, showcased his skills as he dominated the World Finals, taking viewers and commentators back with his prowess. Viggomopsen kicked off his journey with victory at the Danish National Qualifier, before dominating the Red Bull Solo Q World Finals and finishing with a tough but deserved victory in the final match against Arnas “arnax” Stepanauskas. Viggomopsen said of the event “I had actually planned to stop playing League of Legends for some time this year. But I think this tournament has shown me that I shouldn’t give up quite yet and that I can still pursue a great and hopefully fulfilling career in esports and League of Legends going forward. For the next year, my goal is to join a team in a European Regional League and hit Challenger again.”

To provide competitors with the very best equipment, Red Bull Solo Q has joined forces with AGON by AOC, the global leader in gaming monitors, as the Official Monitor Partner for the event, bringing exceptional visual clarity and ultra-high refresh rates to competitors.

“The Biggest Community in the World” Gathers at Gamescom

When the grand kick-off show “gamescom Opening Night Live” begins on the evening of 20 August 2024, thousands of visitors on-site in the gamescom event arena in Cologne, Germany and millions of video game players online worldwide will once again witness the highlights of this year’s gamescom first-hand. Just how strongly games connect people across all continents will be made clear not only in the opening show, but everywhere at the world’s largest games event – which is why gamescom 2024 is taking place under the banner “The biggest community in the world”. Along with the trends being spotlighted at this year’s gamescom, this theme was presented at a press conference jointly organised by game – The German Games Industry Association and Koelnmesse.

Games are the most social medium of our time. Whether enthusiasts are playing them together or engaging in active exchange about them, computer and video games connect over 3 billion people worldwide – a number that is steadily growing. Together, players build entire worlds, put their skills to the test and overcome great dangers. Lifelong friendships take root and grow, across all borders. This makes games the best antidote to loneliness and isolation. Nowhere else do people work together as intensively, exchange ideas with such excitement or celebrate with such enthusiasm. The games community is especially open, creative and passionate, and this is nowhere more evident than at gamescom – the biggest event for “The biggest community in the world”. From esports tournaments in the event arena, to the cosplay village and old games in the retro area, to such new highlights as the cards & boards area and the artist area – everywhere at gamescom, people from all over the world celebrate game culture together. All of which demonstrates what a strong and unique community games create around the globe.

“Anyone who has ever been to gamescom themselves knows the unique feeling. You immediately recognise the joy, curiosity and passion in people’s faces. Long-standing friendships are celebrated and new friends are made – because games connect people in an incomparable way, creating the biggest community in the world. This social component of games is still overlooked far too often, yet it’s so valuable. In times when isolation has become a serious societal challenge and there’s more and more focus on what divides rather than unites us – in these times, games connect billions of people around the world every day in a special way. At gamescom this year, we therefore decided on a theme that highlights this unique community – the players of video games,” said Felix Falk, Managing Director of game – The German Games Industry Association, a co-organizer of gamescom.
