With the rising popularity of professional eSports tournaments there’s a huge demand for amateur events that’s been unmet. Scrimbox is a new platform that allows users to create, discover and participate in amateur gaming events and they recently announced a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to bring the platform to life.

Many video gamers are certainly passionate about playing in tournaments whenever possible, but for amateur players discovering these opportunities on forums and elsewhere can be very difficult. Scrimbox is a new platform that offers a way to remove these challenges by allowing users to create, discover and participate in gaming events from anywhere in the world, in a way that’s simple, easy and fun. The company recently announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund the necessary funds to finish developing and launch the innovative gaming platform.
“Scrimbox is a huge breakthrough for gamers who want to play in more amateur events,” commented a spokesperson from the company. “This Kickstarter is vital to get us started. Join the revolution become a scrimboxer today.”
According to Scrimbox, the platform will allow users to discover thousands of community created game events. Some highlights include the ability to: browse thousands of events; filter based on event type; filter by console; picks based on user’s gaming history; filter based on game title; filter based on team; and picks based on the games user’s own and enjoy.
Scrimbox has set a goal of $7,398 and is set to end on September 10th, 2015.
The response from early supporters for the project has been very passionate.
Greg C., from California, recently said, “I’m really excited about Scrimbox. A friend told me about it and we’re both donating and hoping that will happen. We are serious gamers and the idea of being about to set up our own events and find other events is awesome.”
