Visitors to Legends of the Gaming Live, London’s biggest gaming event taking place at Alexandra Palace on 4-6 September, will have the chance become Guinness World Records title holders in the newly-announced Syndicate and Ali-A Zones.
The Syndicate Guinness World Records Zone will give visitors the chance to attempt a new world record (title to be announced). Popular YouTuber and Twitch streamer Syndicate will attempt to achieve the minimum score and over the course of the weekend gamers can try and beat this.
Those at the top of the leader board will be invited back at the end of the session to be officially adjudicated by Guinness World Records and possibly walk away as the new world record holder.
Specialising in Call of Duty and Minecraft, Syndicate has 8.5 million subscribers and has racked up over 1.5 billion views to his channel.
The Ali-A Guinness World Records Zone is also offering gamers the chance to take on Ali-A’s new Minecraft record which is one of the ten new and exclusive Minecraft challenges that appear in the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition 2016 (out September 10).
Visitors can attempt ‘Most wood collected in one minute’ and those who find themselves at the top of the leaderboard will be invited back at the end of each session for an official attempt.
Also specialising in Call of Duty and Minecraft, Ali-A has 5.5 million subscribers and over 1 billion views.
Event organisers will release more details about the challenges ahead closer to the show giving gamers plenty of time to hone their skills. Keep up to date by signing up to the mailing list or keep an eye on the event website: www.legendsofgaming.co.uk
