GO at the MESF 2017

Day by day, The GO Malta eSports Festival 2017 edges closer. Until that day however, we still have lots of information which we can't wait to reveal. Every detail has been planned to make it the greatest event ever seen on the Maltese Islands. Over the next few articles, we'll be spilling the beans about the handful of proud sponsors which we are overjoyed to be collaborating with for the upcoming event. Starting with the most obvious one, having its name as part of the event's name, is GO.  They really don't need that much of an introduction. GO is a hardworking internet service provider, alongside being a carrier for mobile, which strives to ensure strong connections across the island. Gamers.com.mt has worked together with the local company for many projects and events; why would we work with somebody else?; why would we not want the best internet connection available to us? Wait, before some of you quickly express your own personal experience with the service, understand that the limitations may not be GO's doing, but perhaps your plan or your location is simply limiting. You haven't fully experience GO's zooming speeds unless you've spent an hour or more at our very own Gamers Lounge.  Also, GO stands out as the most open-minded and creative internet provider, pushing itself into various industries and markets such as that of gaming. The company has supported us so many times before and The GO Malta eSports Festival 2017 would definitely be no exception. Thanks to their continuous assistance, we manage to keep up with the increasing prize pools, venue sizes and expectations yearly.  Internet feeling slow? Why don't you try out one of GO's many offers available now?

NiP Signs a PUBG Team

Ninjas in Pyjamas, having teams in some of the largest esports such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, has decided to follow the trend with a PUBG squad of their own. The organisation eagerly revealed the news on Twitter this past week: "Today we're glad to announce our venture in to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the game many of us have that special love/hate relationship with ever since its explosive launch in late March this year. With such a rapid growth in playerbase and millions of gamers dropping onto the island of Erangel every single day, we're happy to see that this game has struck the hearts of gaming enthusiasts all across the globe. Of course the Ninjas in Pyjamas want to be a part of that journey." The roster consists of "Ekkz", "Borg" (sadly he isn't Maltese), "Sweaterr" and "Crunch". All the names except "Ekkz" may seem familiar for competitive PUBG enthusiasts. This is because the three other names represented Cloud9 at the gamescom Invitational. Evidently, either C9 let them go or the players left.  Below is a statement from "Ekkz": "The Dream big or go home quote comes to mind, it doesn't get much bigger than NiP, and our dreams have become a reality, We're honored to be under the same banner with so many legends, and look forward to a great future with our new home and family. Can't wait to see what we can achieve together as Ninjas!" It's great to see more organisations getting involved and preparing themselves for an esport which could potentially blow up just like the game's community.  Other news in the scene include the upcoming IEM Oakland's PUBG Invitational. With the first four teams being revealed, namely Luminosity, TSM, Team Liquid and Noble Esports. The $200,000 worth of prize pool will be contested by 6 other teams to be revealed soon. All the action will take place Nov.18 and 19; just a week before the GO Malta eSports Festival 2017 where we'll have a PUBG event of our own!

Hearthstone at The GO Malta eSports Festival 2017

We've had a considerable number of events this year, ranging in size when it comes to venues, prize pools and games involved. Until now, however, we haven't included Hearthstone in any of these events. As you can assume, that's about to change with the upcoming GO Malta eSports Festival 2017. Last year's festival included the collectible card videogame and this year was going to be no exception.  Published all the way back in 2014, Gamers.com.mt has always pushed the title in its events, consistently animating the local Hearthstone scene. Our organisation has had a great history with the game, being a huge part of our first local tournaments. Of course, time's passed and the local community isn't as fueled as it was, which is exactly why we're bringing it back.  As usual, it will form part of the casual tournaments available to anyone who fancies picking a card. Alongside Rocket League, it's one of the more relaxed environments. For those unaware of the basic game mechanics, here's a rundown. Players gather themselves digitally across a table. The game progresses as players go through a turn-based system to use their pre-made deck of cards from their collection. Cards range from summonable minions, wild spells and a great variety of other commands. Defeating the opponent involves lowering his health to zero. Heathstone is set within the Warcraft univers, utilising the existing lore in all its content. Although it may sound simple, there is an intricate level of depth which has lead to an exciting esport across the whole world. If you haven't given it a shot, go ahead and try it. It's free-to-play, so no harm could possible be done.  Tell us in the comments section below what you think about our lineup of games and which you're most looking forward to.
