The tournament's roster of YouTube-famous gamers includes Joe "Angry Joe" Vargas, Ryan "Northernlion" Letourneau, and Martin "Quill18" Glaude, among others.
Magicka: Wizard Wars, available on Steam Early Access, lets players blast each other with combinations of elemental spell casting. War of the Vikings, likewise a Steam Early Access game, favors strategic hacking and slashing over button-mashing beat 'em up action.
