Gods of Boom is a competitive first-person shooter (FPS) for mobile devices with a 60 million audience across the world. The game has already won over countless Esports fans!

Gods of Boom is one of the first mobile titles to make a noticeable mark in esports history. The game offers a specially designed competitive mode that allows players to fight on equal footing. In 2018, we’ve held two major tournaments and mid-season online tournaments - in Katowice and Los Angeles - with a total prize pool of $200,000! During the season, teams competed for a trip to the most important event of the year, and the battles were heated!

This year, Game Insight has developed a system of three consecutive series. By winning one, the team moves to the next: 

  • Challenger Series (online tournaments)

  • Pro Series (offline studio events)

  • Gods of Boom (stadium-level events)

Challenger Series

This is the entry point, with weekly online tournaments for teams around the world. If your team does well in these games, you score points and win cash prizes. The Challenger Series is divided into stages that lead up to the next Pro Series event. There are Winter, Spring and Summer Challengers. At the end of each stage, the top teams advance to the next stage — Pro Series. At the end of a stage, all qualifier points are reset, so every stage of the Challenger Series starts off with a clean slate.

Pro Series

These are offline esports tournaments featuring the top teams, taking place at different venues around the world. There is serious prize pool money at these events, and a team can make a name for themselves, forever marking their place in esports history. What’s most important though, is that winners of the Pro Series get to advance to the top tournaments — Gods of Boom.

The best of the best are gathered here. These guys aren’t just sharpshooters and skilled fighters, they’re all very experienced team players who know how to play tactically as a unit. Every team on this level is nothing short of a Gods of Boom legend. These tournaments are played in huge arenas with crowds of fans cheering from their seats. The winners take home big money, trophies, and the title of champion.

Contenders of Season 2 will fight for the $500,000 prize pool!

Let's talk about the live events which already happened in Gods of Boom Esports League:


Esports season 2 is over, and it was full of spectacular gaming, clutch holds, bold rushes and sneaky flank attacks. It was finished after two huge Gods of Boom events in Tallinn: Pro Series Europe and Gods of Boom Season 2 Finals

On November 23 the main stage HyperTown festival in Tallinn started filling nicely. Teams fought for a $180,000 prize pool, and once again RedX (ex-Impact Gaming) blasted to the top, taking the trophy and the money. This was their fourth victory in a LIVE event in Season 2 - great consistency.

The fate of $40,000 and the last spot in the Season 2 Finals was decided when 6 teams from around the world gathered on November 22, Friday (some call it Brawlday).

However, they were already in the finals, so the last slot in the decisive battle of the next day went to EANIX.
