Following a recent $20,000 victory by Michael Coyne at Le Mans, France, ForzaRC eSports league has now reached a close.
Michael Coyne will now be amongst 2017 Le Mans race winners Timo Bernhard, Earl Bamber and Brendon Hartley.
Forza Motorsport is one of the most gruelling racing sims out there – the high skill curve for skilled racing in the Forza Motorsport series has proven to be the perfect place for a competitive eSports scene. As a result, Forza has recently finished season 3 of their ForzaRC eSports league with spectacular results.
The new ForzaRC eSports league saw over $100,000 in prizes handed out to players, with the biggest prizes being claimed by the most competitive Forza players.
There were two ways to get involved; either through the Forza Recreational league (with Forza Horizon 3) or through the Forza Elite league (With Forza Motorsport 6.)
The Forza Recreational league offered more casual players a chance to earn prizes each week, whilst the Forza Elite league featured a points system and leaderboard. At the end of the season, the players with the most points were given the chance to compete in an event at Le Mans, France.
No DLC was required for the Forza Recreational league, but those wanting to get involved with the Forza Elite league needed Forza Motorsport 6 and the Porsche Expansion Pack DLC.
The weekly prizes given out in the Recreational league were Xbox gift cards. Players were required race on the tracks and with the cars listed below.
Those with the fastest lap time at the end of each week were rewarded with $300, $200, and $100 for coming 1st, 2nd, or 3rd respectively. Those who finished in the top 25 were also given $25 for their efforts.
Seeing the level of competitive play at the Le Mans event showcased the huge potential Forza Motorsport has as an eSports title. We’re hoping that this competitive community will only grow over time, and hopefully there will be plenty of eSports opportunities when Forza Motorsport 7 makes it’s way to the Xbox One and Xbox One X.
