This year, Pokegaia and Kill3useFlu0 were invited to the Lyon E-Sport 2020 which took place from February 29th to March 1st at the Lyon Convention Centre.
The Lyon E-Sport is organized by the association of the same name and gathers every year since 2011 many E-Sport competitions including some of the biggest players of the international scene!
All players find their seats and make some technical changes or review their strategies.
Doigby (famous french streamer) released the famous Lama from Fortnite on his stream and managed to survive the whole event without getting sprayed!
Like all conventions on video games or manga, you could meet cosplayers.
The 5 major zones :
The main stage: All the important shows, like the main final, animations, stream projections and award ceremony, performed here.
The scenes of pro players: There were 2 scenes: Solary and “the stream” where we could see the live of tournaments of LOL, Fortine and Trackmania.
The game test space for the public: We could test virtual headsets, dance at “Just Dance” and test several games.
The players and streamers area was a place where the public didn’t have access because this is where the tournaments took place until the final (above, the stream from Gotaga ).
Signing area: A space where you could take a picture with influencers or ask them for autographs.
