Since 2009 on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Vanity eSports has been providing the community with frequent tournaments and cups including both P2P’s and F2P’s. The majority just for fun to help grow the community, but some also including great prizes from sponsors and large money pots from P2P’s.
Today I am sad to announce that Vanity eSports will be closing its doors for the foreseeable future. One of the main reasons for this is that I don’t have as much time to continue with it as previously due to me moving away to University in September. With the lack of staff available I can not see it being possible to host well organised tournaments on my own.
Another reason for this is that I do not have the funds to continue to grow Vanity and find it hard to generate any good prize pots for tournaments due to the next reason.
Lastly I have seen a large decline in interest from the community in the last year for smaller tournament organisers due to there now being bigger opportunities for gamers. Back on previous Call of Duty titles we used to gather more teams and interest even though the community was smaller.
Sadly due to all these reasons combined I feel it is time for me to announce the closure of Vanity eSports.
Thank you to everyone that has been there for Vanity eSports from the very start in 2009. The experience I have had has been a lot of fun however there has also been some hard times. Believe it or not Vanity has also offered some good life skills for myself. Thanks to every staff member that has helped out, every sponsor and most importantly the community.
As for myself I will not be quitting the scene so you will be seeing more from me soon.
