Munich. A perfect illustration of what #UnitedInRivalry means – the weekend saw three BMW esports partner teams competing in two League of Legends tournaments. All three teams made it through to the final. The LoL European Championship (LEC) Spring Split final was contested by G2 from Germany and Fnatic from the UK. The British team advanced to the final via two match wins in two rounds, while the German team had to come through the losers’ bracket after suffering a first-round defeat. But it was a different story in the final: G2 dominated the best-of-five match, scoring an emphatic 3:0 win. That was also the final score line in the parallel event of the North American League Championship Series (LCS), which was won by Cloud9. Throughout the entire tournament, the Americans only lost a single game in their matches against three opponents.

Normally, esports tournaments at this level take place on a stage, in front of a live audience of thousands of fans. This time, however, in keeping with the current social distancing rules, the teams remained in their respective headquarters – in the spirit of the #UnitedAtHome hashtag. However, the overarching #UnitedInRivalry motto governing the esports teams’ partnership with BMW was just as much in evidence. The teams used this hashtag to verbally challenge their rivals through messages, posts and tweets on various social media channels and build excitement among themselves and their fans in the run-up to the matches.

In addition to Fnatic, G2 and Cloud9, BMW also supports Funplus Phoenix and T1 – in short, five of the world’s best esports teams. This commitment includes comprehensive technology transfer to promote esports as well as the provision of eye-catching team vehicles.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
