SiGMA Sponsoring the GO Malta eSports Festival 2017

Last but not least is our final sponsor in the forms of SiGMA. Yet, before we delve into that, let's remember all the sponsors whom we've dedicated an article to. Sponsors are absolutely fundamental for esports events, heightening prize pools and supporting Gamers.com.mt as co-ordinators, we're grateful for every sponsor that chooses to assist us. With that being said, SiGMA is one company you definitely need to know about.  SiGMA, or the Summit of iGaming Malta, is a central power when it comes to gambling and any online transactions related to gaming. Providing an international platform, reputable for the reliability and ease of use, they are a top brand recognised globally. SiGMA unites sponsors and names from around the world to host some of the largest igaming shows around the world. Last year, they hosted SiGMA 2016 on Maltese soil. Why Malta? Well, since we host 300 gaming companies, 450 licenses and a strong workforce of 10,000, our little island has quite the presence when it comes to igaming. Based on last year's feedback, eight features of SiGMA 17 are being focused upon. Check them out here: https://maltaigamingsummit.com/about/ This year's event, hosting the likes of digital games representatives, remote gaming land based operators, government entities, industry vendors and all other similar businessmen, SiGMA 2017 is in fact sold out. Filled to the brim with sponsors and ideas, the expo floor plan simply has no more room. The upcoming event is this week, from 22nd to 25th November. Perhaps if you order a late ticket, you may still manage to soak up some conferences. Everything will take place at the Malta Fair and Conventions Centre, MFCC, in Ta' Qali. Apart from the intense expo, there will be a lovely assortment of three restaurants, two lounge areas and six themed bars. All guests may enjoy a lunch, cigar and a drink at no extra charge. When you're satisfied with everything, free shuttle bus service offers a ride home.

DRAM Prices To Rise By 10 - 20 Percent

Unfortunately for PC gamers, recent statistics have effectively predicted an increase in DRAM price especially as we head into 2018. Through these statistics, a calculated 10 to 20 percent increase is expected in price. All the information comes from DRAMeXchange and their research.  This year, the third quarter itself already say a 5 percent price increase individually, and the price increases are based on this. Again, retail cost will be proportional to capacity specifications, which might even lead beyond 20 percent. Yet, why is this happening? Well, the demand for DRAM is at an all-time high based on an increased need for more devices, especially phones which seem to need more RAM every year. For example, Apple buys around eighteen percent of the world's annual supply of NAND chips, a form of DRAM which they use in their smartphones.  Obviously, the same goes for PC DRAM modules too. Here's what a researcher, Avril Wu, from the source had to comment:  “Contracts with first-tier DRAM suppliers show that the prices of PC DRAM modules have now risen above US$30 and maintained around US$30.5 on average, amounting to a seven per cent hike from the third quarter. This price increase is mainly attributed to the influence of the booming mobile DRAM market, which is in turn fueled by the limited product supply and the releases of flagship smartphones during the traditional busy season of this year’s second half.” The price increase looks to be overcome by new production lines at fresh factories, to be opened by the likes of Samsung and SK Hynix as examples. Hopefully things will return to normal mid-2018, which is when we expect it to flatten out.  Silicon price increase has been reported by a Japanese Silicon wafer manufacturer responsible for a total of 60 percent of the world supply. The company plans to increase prices which will literally make everything to do with computing, more expensive. I don't think there's much we can do, and it isn't good news for consumers. Companies will either find new ways to cut down on price or products are going to be that much more expensive.  Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

Optic Gaming, Splyce and Mindfreak Win The First Regional 2Ks

Only two weeks after the release of Call of Duty: WWII, it's clear that the game is boding well with the community as well as professionals; especially as the first round of regional MLG 2K tournaments came to an end yesterday to distribute the sought out CWL pro points respective of placement. These will prove evermore essential as we slowly progress to the upcoming events.  If you don't know what 2Ks are, here's a quick summary. 2Ks are organised by MLG, who assist Activision in organising the esports scene. Taking place over an online connection, they serve the purpose of slimming down the qualification for events while stringed before events to keep the scene alive. They will mainly prioritise pro points and thus only have cash prizes of roughly $2000, hence "2K".  All three regional 2Ks went down simultaneously; yet you probably didn't realise. Why? Well, due to the importance of these games, many teams are opting to avoid streaming gameplay in order to conceal tactics and dialogue, perhaps to reserve the upper leg early in the competitive year. Starting with North America, Sunday saw Optic Gaming sweep Luminosity Gaming 3-0 to claim the majority of the points after taking the first seed. To the east, the Europeans of Red Reserve and the newly formed Splyce battled it out until the serpents came out on top. Splyce look to retain their dominant European form from last season. In the APAC region, another unsurprising statistic awarded Mindfreak a 3-2 victory over "Excite"'s roster. Each victor bagged 2,000 pro points each, and it should be noted that all the winners had the first seed in the region at the beginning.  So, the results weren't too surprising. The three best regional teams from last year have kept their positions at the top; will they manage to keep this form up until the 2018 CWL Dallas Open? Will any of the potential teams, those filled with veterans and young blood, upset the established rosters? We're sure that next week's 2K will include more variety, picking a favourite for the upcoming LAN event quite difficult. 

GamingMalta To Sponsor The GO Malta eSports Festival 2017!

Gamers.com.mt isn’t the only local company which is devoted to enhancing and promoting esports on the island and we’re aware of this. One example is GamingMalta, an independent non-profit foundation created by the collaboration between the Government of Malta and the Malta Gaming Authority. Having the responsibility of improving Malta’s gaming industry and the whole ecosystem involved, we’re more than happy to announce them as sponsors for the upcoming GO Malta Esports Festival 2017. Never heard of GamingMalta? That’s a shame really, because they do such a great amount of work for the gaming industry. Below is their primary aim taken from their website http://www.gamingmalta.org: Promote Malta as the world’s premier online gaming jurisdiction and a centre of excellence and raise Malta’s profile as a quality jurisdiction for the licensing and regulation of gaming companies, both locally and internationally. They carry out their task alongside quite a heavy load of commitments. Certain examples include promoting ownership of the Malta brand among stakeholders, standing out through innovation and supporting the MGA amongst others. Again, if you’d like to see the whole list, we recommend you become familiar with their website. Here is a message from the GamingMalta Chairman himself: “The foundation of GamingMalta represents a significant step forward for Malta’s gaming industry. We want gaming in Malta to excel through the quality, innovation and choice it offers to consumers and GamingMalta’s chief objective will be to develop Malta as an international brand of excellence. The intuitive company will find themselves at a massive upcoming event for the business side of gaming, being SIGMA17, offering their concepts and ideas to all passing by. It will be interesting to see what they’ve come up with. A collaboration between GamingMalta and Gamers.com.mt is only natural, and we’re glad to have their support for the GO MESF 2017!
