In June 2018 a new League of Legends tournament was launched by Riot Games, called Premier Tour. Everyone who lives within the DASH countries (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and is at least platinum 5-ranked, is welcome to participate. The goal of this tournament is to help expand the strong e-sports scene in the DASH countries. As you can see it is a major tournament and we had the honor to create a trophy for it.
For those who do not know League of Legends, it is a 3D, third-person multiplayer online battle arena game. The characters the gamers play with all have their own set of unique abilities.
The Premier Tour consists out of two seasons: a summer (from May until August) and a winter (from October until March) tournament. Each season consists out of four stops all with live finals on different locations. The first round in every stop are open qualifiers until eight teams are determined. Then, the closed qualifier is played with those eight teams and with the eight best teams from the previous stop. After this, the finals take place with the four final teams. Finally, the two top teams of each season will move on to the European Masters, representing Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
The legendary trophy: 3D printed and awesome
Of course we want to give you some more information about the gaming trophy itself as well (since we are very proud of having made it). The award is 3D-printed and finished in glossy gold. Although it doesn’t look like it, the foot of the gaming trophy was 3D printed as well, but we could give it a stone look by using a special spraypaint technique. For the cristal we used a beautiful blue acryl. What do you think of it? Feel free to leave a comment!
