ELEAGUE MTG Arena event
Weirdly enough, the Streamer Showdown event will be live streamed on the same day as ELEAGUE’s SHOWDOWN event for Magic: The Gathering. The two events will be shown at different times, almost five hours apart. ELEAGUE’s SHOWDOWN event presented by Intel Gamer Days will continue weekly each Wednesday at 8 pm until December 18. However, not much information has been given on the website yet regarding rules.
Streamer Showdown’s Magic: The Gathering Arena edition will be streamed on Twitch on September 4 at 3 pm EDT. Are you interested in any other MTG personalities being featured on such a show? Let us know in the comments below. Check out Daily Esports for all of your latest MTG coverage.
