eSports Events Weekly Update: October Week 4

Read up to see what esports events are happening this week. We'll be looking at the LoL World Championship, Overwatch worldwide, and a sneak peek at BlizzCon!

CS:GO at the The GO Malta eSports Festival 2017

With CS:GO enthusiasts pre-occupied thanks to the ongoing ESL Pro League and many other events to look forward to for the rest of the calendar year, we'd like to grab the attention of local competitors with our next event, The GO Malta eSports Festival 2017. To spell it out, we'll be hosting a CS:GO tournament at the event, to find out who sits on top locally.   The title really doesn't need any introduction, we've included it countless times in many of our events, but for the benefit of the doubt, here's the breakdown. Two teams, Counter-Terrorists and Terrorists, gather on each side of a chosen map. Starting out with equal amounts of funds, players buy weapons through a menu. The game progresses using rounds, won by either exploding or defusing a bomb, depending on what side you find yourself, or simply by eliminating the whole of the enemy team. As economy increases, many factors come into play to make CS:GO the very successful esport that it is. First team to 16 rounds wins, following the half time after 15 rounds of play. Most local players know these rules like the back of their hand, always improving and trying to define themselves at these events.  Although the title is over 5 years old, many competitors have been satisfied by the continuous updates and add-ons, including map re-skins which spice things up now and then. Competitively, it also goes through a lot of changes, constantly introducing new regulations and ideas. Now that China has official access to the FPS, which we covered here: http://www.gamers.com.mt/news/479/china-finally-gets-its-hands-on-cs-go, the possibilities keep growing.  Alongside League of Legends and PUBG, CS:GO is one of the larger title we'll be featuring in the event; expect vicious games, emotional victories and hard-fought losses all throughout the weekend. This will also be spurred by the prize pool which awaits, we don't have the exact numbers yet, but trust us when we say it will be worth everything you'll have to go through to take it home.  Tell us your feelings about including the title below and perhaps tag those potential teammates. Be sure to enter before we sell out!

The OGN APEX Season 4 Finale, GC Busan vs Runaway! Post-Match Discussion.

A detailed recap of yesterday’s Overwatch OGN APEX Season 4 Finale, with a quick summary of how each map panned out throughout the series.

If it works, it ain’t stupid. Here are some crazy Dota 2 builds in pub and pro scene

Dota 2 gives you hundreds of different item options. Here are some crazy Dota 2 builds which happened in both pub and tournament games that actually worked.

Dota 2 Hamburg Places Brand New Mercedez-Benz at Stake

Dota 2; one of the largest esports in the whole world, having had the biggest prize pools, venues and popularity ever seen in the history of competitive gaming. We just saw The Invitational 7 with its $20,000,000 prize pool, again breaking a record. To spice things up, however, the upcoming ESL One Hamburg Dota 2 Major will be offering a car for the voted MVP. Read on to find out more.  Sponsored by none other than Mercedez-Benz, the formidable German car manufacturer, the ESL One Hamburg will be the first event ever to place an autombile in the prize pool. The winner of the MVP vote will be greeted with a fantastic car, worth roughly $59,000. This is one of the most, if not the most, significant non-cash prizes to be awarded ever.  So, apart from the $1,000,000 prize pool, which is already quite an impressive amount; players will be trying their very best to not only win as a team, but to potentially benefit individually through a pricey set of wheels. Other sponsors for the event include Pringles, maybe the car comes with a can of cheesy goodness as a bonus?  Details on the event include the location of, you'll never guess, Hamburg. Barclaycard Arena will be filled to the brim as fans from around the world will watch the top 8 teams go head to head over three days of jam-packed action. Together with the mentioned prizes, there are also 1500 pro points involved.  Anyway, the prize present at the ESL One Hamburg will take place between October 26th and 29th. Votes cast by fans will go alongside those of the talent themselves, with 60 percent of control awarded to the latter. Regardless of the prize at stake, it should be a great event as usual, also a strong start to another season of tight competition and tournaments.

Longzhu had a lot coming wrong for them. Too many rookies, Cuzz not playing well, and mental fatigue. Thanks to Ambition, LZ didn’t seem to stand a chance.
