“Twitch Rivals – the words of Steven Fisler, Twitch’s Head of Esports & Content Production – combines the best of competitive gaming. We bring the best streamers and fan favorite games to the small screen, as well as offer entertainment on a global scale. Working with Lando for these initiatives makes us proud. We managed to put on a crossover event of Minecraft, involving streamers and sports personalities “.
The teams competed in three mini-games created especially for the event. It is not the first time, meanwhile, that Twitch has organized a Rivals for Minecraft. The title developed by Mojang has never had an official esports wing, but its extreme flexibility makes it compatible with competitions. Over the years, in fact, hardcore gamers have spawned private servers crammed with competitive modes. Despite a rather clear closure by the parent company, the community has always tried to keep the competition high, especially in official events such as the MineCon.
