Amazon's 2017 Champions of Fire casual eSports tournament wraps up in New York

Amazon has wrapped up its Champions of Fire mobile game tournament with Twitch streamer Yassuo winning the grand prize of $10,000.

The tournament saw twelve streamers battling it out across a selection of casual mobile games. Sega's Sonic Forces: Speed Battle, Bandai Namco's Pac-Man 256, and .GEARS' Flappy Bird Family were among the ten games played.

Yassuo, who was a relatively modest 320,000 followers on Twitch, fended off far bigger streamers such as Swiftor, with one million followers, and MystIc7, with 1.6 million followers. Between them, the twelve entrants had over seven million followers on Twitch.

Leader of the pack

As well as battling for a personal prize, the competitors also held three charity matches at the event. $1,500 in donations were shared between three charities.

The Champions of Fire tournament was Amazon's last eSports competition in 2017. It was originally announced back in November 2017.

Amazon has also hosted two Mobile Masters tournaments throughout the year, which focus on core mobile games such as Summoners War and Vainglory.
