Hope you had a great festive season, surrounded by your family, pets or friends, with plenty of delicious food. We also hope that you had a chance to relax and enjoy a game or two. 😉
Before we properly roll up our sleeves and start being responsible and working adults once more, (we all agree that the first week doesn't count right?), the whole Lenovo Legion Team wanted to wish you a Happy New Year 2022!! May this year be the best one yet.🥂
Because new beginnings make us feel all nostalgic, we are taking a look at the past and what 2021 meant to all of us.
2021 was a great year: the Legion Gaming Community was born and we went from just being a few members (that included maybe a cousin or two, and maybe even the supportive grandma 🧓), to a thriving community of more than 60,000 players!!!!!
So, THANK YOU!!!! For being here, for playing with us, for sharing your thoughts, likes and dislikes, hopes and fears, the games you love and the ones you loathe, and you secret crushes on certain characters (can't blame you, Lady Dimitrescu and Nathan Drake are HOT 😜).
To celebrate, here's a little summary of everything we achieved and lived this year:
- March 10th: the Nordic, Italian, MEA and Spanish communities are officially launched. The Legion Gaming Community is born!😎
- In May we hosted our first game night ever with members. It's been great to see how some of you who were there from the very beginning are still here (a special mention to @Ken3cento, @Liue, @galadrielmt, @bekaleo and @LockOut, the originals, you guys rock!!)
- June: @G2Esports and the Legion team play together for the very first time. We get our assess royally kicked in League of Legends. Who would have thought that esports players could get so competitive?
- Also en June, we lived together the excitement of the E3 conference together. We stayed awake until we saw every trailer and update 😴. Remember when we thought Elden Ring was going to see the light in 2021? Hahahaha... (cries in gamer).
- In July, hundreds of you joined us in the Path and we played The Witcher: Monster Slayer together. Thanks to you guys, we always had roots for our potions!!! (This how we felt every time we slayed a Necrophage).
- Also in October: the Nordic Community members shared with us how has gaming evolved them, and man, it was awesome to read all the amazing gaming stories you guys shared!! We felt so lucky to be able to read them and share them. Take a look here!
- November brought a lot of excitement for our MEA communities : The Legion Africa Cup started, and thousands of players got together to play CSGO!!!
- December 15th: the Spanish and French Community celebrate their very first game nights. Olé!!!
- December: we celebrated with a Festive Game Night, we talked about our favourite Christmas movies and series, and we gave away many prizes to our members across all communities! 🎁
- We reached 60k members!!!
It's also important to remember some of the posts that sparked great discussions across the communities, those who made us laugh, remember nice times or type as fast as we could (because maybe we thought Cyberpunk wasn't THAT bad):
