Rising stars

Rising Stars holds a truly unique place in the industry. It strikes a perfect balance between the current faces of gaming and those looking to join those ranks. The tournament held during EGLX 2019 saw ESAM (Smash Bros Ultimate), HungryBox (Smash Bros Melee) and Vikkstar (Fortnite) fostering the next generation of talent through competition and mentorship.

Congrats to the 2019 Winners

The inaugural Rising Stars tournament brought forward spectacular talent in each feature game of EGLX 2019. Congratulations to all of our winners! From Fortnite, Nickool snagged top cash prize and a Luminosity Gaming sponsorship. From Smash Bros. Melee, Blacktwins13 fought hard to join the Luminosity Gaming family. Finally, from Smash Bros. Ultimate, Soonsay battled through 206 solo competitors to become a Rising Star. We can’t wait to see where this talent goes next!
