BARCELONA KEENCON 2021
The first edition of the Barcelona KeenCon brought together 14 of the best players of the Spanish history of this title, as well as new promises of the scene. The event was held in October 2021 and hosted two competitions of the video game Quake Champions: one individual and one 2vs2.
After a draw, the participants and teams were distributed in a bracket, starting from the round of 16 in the case of the 1vs1 tournament, and from the quarter-finals in the 2vs2 tournament. In both cases, the competition had a winners’ bracket and a losers’ bracket, which gave a second chance to the losers of the higher bracket. The Grand Final, both 1vs1 and 2vs2, pitted the winners’ bracket champion against the losers’ bracket champion.
The winners’ bracket games were best of 3 maps (Bo3), the losers’ bracket was a single map, and the Grand Final was played best of 5 (Bo5).
The 1vs1 competition ended with S0mbrA as the winner, beating macross by three maps to two in a five-game grand final.
SombrA was also victorious in the 2vs2 alongside his partner Akiles. The two Spanish Quake legends, who formed the Dreams & Magic team, proved that they are still in good shape by beating Hardlimit from Malaga in a great final in which only two maps were played with a final result of 3-0 thanks to the point advantage they came from the winners bracket.
The event was streamed live by the organization for more than 16 hours straight, reaching more than 50 hours of live content adding the broadcasts on collaborating Twitch channels, such as those of streamers aNouC and Atwy.
