Gfinity announce Elite Series Season 2 launch date

The Gfinity Elite Series Australia, presented by Alienware, returns for its second season of 2018 on Saturday 3rd of November.

Season 2 follows the inaugural series, which concluded in July with dominant Melbourne Order victories across all three titles, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Rocket League and Street Fighter V. 

“Melbourne Order’s dominant victory last season has set the tone for Season 2”, said Dominic Remond, Gfinity Esports Australia’s CEO.

“We expect to see old rivalries reignited, Melbourne Order have a target on their back, and with roster changes across the clubs, fans are in for our most competitive season yet. Aussies love a dark horse, and now we have five.”

Season 1 awarded $225,000 in prize money as professional and drafted players competed at Hoyts Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park. Season 2 will again take place at the arena and will see the return of presenting partner Alienware, as well as series partners Logitech and Dare Iced Coffee.  

Returning city-based clubs Sydney Chiefs, Sydney Roar, Melbourne Avant, Melbourne Order, Brisbane Deceptors and Perth Ground Zero have all drafted their rosters for Season 2.

“The Challenger Series injected plenty of new blood into the Australian esports community, and it’s inspiring to see these players returning for Season 2,” said Dominic Remond.

“The performance of draftees like Doom and Syo were integral to the performance of their clubs, and their continued involvement speaks volumes to the system we’ve built.”

The season 2 series final will take place on December 15 and 16, 2018.

All the live action action will be streamed at twitch.tv/GfinityAU, with video on demand available afterwards.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
