eSports MeetUp in SalzburgPosted by generalTravel 16. Juli 2018 in
The „esports.meetup“ is normally located in Vienna. We are glad that the hosts choose Salzburg instead of Austria’s capital city as the latest MeetUp location because not all teams have the possibility to get to Vienna on a regular basis. Thanks to „XGS eSports“ Tyrol Tactics was invited to the Red Bull Arena where only a small part of Austria’s ESports scene had access to.

The two speakers talked about the league in the German-speaking-area and about the extremely realistic simulation of racetracks because of special equipment. Rajkovic is the owner of the racing Software GmbH, a company which is specialized in creating various simulations for professional racing teams.
Patrick Lenhart, responsible for marketing operations in Austrian’s football league, talked about the players, viewers, and aims of the electronic soccer league in the latest season. „FIFA 18 was sold 275.000 times in Austria!“ This is a clear indicator of the importance of eSports concerning football. The last season was played in the so-called 85-mode. All teams and players have the same statistics and are therefore on the same level. For Lenhart this is very important: „The 85-mode stays!“. He wants to have all players to have the same opportunities in the tournament.
