The two-day online event this month features two Rocket League tournaments; one for fans and another for influencers.
Acer, a leading gaming hardware provider, will host Predator League 2022 on October 25th and 26th. This two-day online community event includes two Rocket League gaming tournaments; one open to anyone who wants to compete and the other competition between 8 renowned Rocket League streamers who will team up to win $25,000 for a charity of their choice out of four select non-profit organizations.
“Predator League is an opportunity for PC gamers to connect, have fun, and inspire others to do the same,” said Richard Black, vice president of marketing, at Acer America. “It’s a top priority for Acer to support gamers of all levels and backgrounds with the hardware, community, and experiences that will help them hone their skills, expand their networks, and have a great time doing it. We’re also excited to use this event to benefit charities providing education and services focused on building a more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable society.”
