Gamers.com.mt 6th Anniversary

We've got a lot to be grateful and to celebrate about, especially today, as it was on the 18th July of 2012 that Gamers.com.mt was born - marking our sixth anniversary. Yearly, we maximize the possibility of advancing and developing ourselves together with the local community and industry thanks to everyone's support and enthusiasm for a mutual passion; gaming on a competitive level. We'll commemorate the milestone by taking a look back, especially at the past year.    The Malta Cyber Series #3 - Back To Basics A tremendous amount has happened since our preceding anniversary; massive events, major developments and great expansion for the company. We'll begin chronologically, with the Malta Cyber Series #3. Sporting the slogan of 'Back to Basics', we graced the local Maltese scene with a splash of nostalgia in the summer heat, mainly through the feature of the beloved classic in Call of Duty 2. Hosted at the Luzzu Conference Hall at Seashells Resort, anyone who participated can easily recall the casual evenings and the competitive days. Other titles featured were LoL and FIFA, with Christian Spiteri extended his fantastic record accumulating 9 tournament wins. The event was a great success, which we will replicate and improve upon in the upcoming installment in the franchise, through the MCS #4. Also, resurrecting COD2 was such a breath of fresh air that we decided to include it in the largest event of the year later on.    The Games Weekend at the MIA Food Court Skipping forward another month and it's October - an event which nobody expected takes place. The Games Weekend at the Malta International Airport Food Court on the 14th October was definitely a wildcard in terms of events. With airport shopping vouchers on the line, a retro DJ in the background, boardgames, a Wheel of Fortune and food, the event was like nothing ever seen before. Of course, there were the Tekken 7 and FIFA 18 tournaments across the two days - the warm reception for Tekken 7 was taken note of for the future. We hope that some more retro fun may be enjoyed in the future!   The Aliquantum €5,000 CS:GO Tournament Then, of course, our yearly highlight was celebrated as we held the largest esports event on the island; the Malta eSports Festival 2017, but not before another event just a week before it! We're referring to the Aliquantum Gaming event which we supported and organized at SiGMA 17; the largest iGaming convention in Malta. Offering free-of-charge participation, we had to rely on the local CS:GO scene, and we were far from disappointed with the results. It was an event that put us in our paces, especially with the MESF in the same week!   The GO Malta Esports Festival 2017 Back to the largest event of the year; made possible thanks to a tidal wave of sponsors and local enthusiasm, letting Malta know that eSports is important to us. The Malta eSports Festival hosted a whopping total of 8 separate tournaments across PC and console platforms; Tekken 7, FIFA 18, LoL, Hearthstone, Rocket League, COD: WWII, PUBG, and COD2. The PUBG tournament was the first one ever on the island and the hype was astounding - so much so, that the underdeveloped servers couldn't help it and we had to take it online! Also, the curious inclusion of COD2 is due to the fact that earlier featuring in the MCS#3 resurrected some old rivalries which we felt had to be settled - trust us, they were. Featuring the largest prize pools of the year, the level of competition impressed everyone and it was simply a blast; a massive thanks to everyone involved, since it only becomes the largest event in Malta thanks to the players.    The Malta Robotics Olympiad 2018 Battalion 1944: Open That was 2017 - now we've got half of 2018 to review. This far, Battalion 1944, international competition and local expansion have defined 2018.  With the conception of Battalion 1944 in February, the local scene was eager to give it a shot and move on from COD2. We tested this vigor through the MRO Battalino 1944: Open. at the MFCC centre, where the youth of Malta had the chance to witness esports. To summarise the results, we've pledged the support the title for the rest of 2018, especially following a commentator's words of "Maltese Battalion 1944 is the best in the world".    The EsportsBetting.com Launch Invitational $10,000 CS:GO Tournament International competition was then embraced in the esportsbetting.com Launch Invitational, with a huge prize pool of $10,000 and some of the best CS:GO teams in the world competing such as  Fnatic Academy. The online event was a new experience for us and we cannot wait for more international competition like it. A month later, in May, we held two separate FIFA 18 tournaments; the MITA Gaming Experience, for MITA and its employees and for the Costa Coffee Foundation, in which we decided to give back and help out those in need through some fun competition.    The Gamers Lounge, Birkirkara Halfway through April, Gamers.com.mt made a decisive move to expand the Gamers Lounge into a dual venue as we opened up our 2nd shop in Birkirkara! Organizing celebratory evenings and offers, it's been booming with success! So much so, that it hosted a boot camp held by Area Academy for their international CS:GO talent which received national TV coverage. We're very proud of this; it's one of the many functions of the Gamers Lounge.  That brings us full circle to the present; with Fortnite Duos Tournaments weekly, Gallantry Budapest and an unsatiable itch of excitement for the Malta Cyber Series #4.

Steam Statistics - Best of 2018 Until Now

Just like last year, the PC platform of Steam has just released statistics for the half-year mark, including information such as the best-selling games and the most simultaneous players within the categories of platinum, gold, silver, and bronze. Across the statistics, there are some surprises alongside the titles that you'd expect. So let's take a break from all the esports and look at some games.  Starting off with the top-sellers, expected Platinum titles include PUBG, Grand Theft Auto V, Rocket League and CS:GO to give a few examples. A certain surprise is the feature of Jurassic World: Evolution - a game which I had never heard of, which consists of creating your own Jurassic World. Moving on to Gold, the beauty of diversity is embraced in the wide variety of title present. It's incredible to see titles such as The Elder Scrolls Online and The Witcher 3: Wil Hunt here, games which are 3+ years old. If you move down to the Silver and Bronze division you'll also find other older games too.  However, selling statistics are quite different from those pertaining to simultaneous players. Simultaneous player counts show how well the game is doing at the current moment, and are pivotal for multiplayer games. Only 6 games managed to clock in over 100,000 simultaneous players, and here they are: CS:GO PUBG GTA V Rainbow Six Siege Dota 2 Warframe If I'd have to point out a stranger, it would be Warframe. This free-to-play game is a co-op action game found on almost all platforms, including the upcoming version for the Nintendo Switch. When I had played it a while back on the PS4, it did feel a lot like Destiny - but unlike Destiny, it's pulled through in the long run. If you haven't tried it out, I recommend that you do so.  The 'over 50,000 simultaneous players' area is a whole lot more crowded. Titles such as Far Cry 5, Garry's Mod, Civilization V and VI and Skyrim are found here.  To go over the full lists yourself, head on over to Steam's charts over here:  https://store.steampowered.com/stats/.  This review was typed out on a new Ozone keyboard which we'll be reviewing very soon. Head's up for two other product reviews too. 

ENCE Sponsored by GiG - A Maltese-Based Company

Witnessing Maltese-based gaming brands pledging international sponsorships within the international industry is always great to see. Hence, we're happy to announce that GiG, the Maltese-based iGaming operator flagship brand of Gaming Innovation Group (Rizk.com) has finalized a sponsorship deal with none other than ENCE's CS:GO team. Learn more below.  Specifically, GiG sponsored ENCE's CS:GO roster ahead of Cologne 2018, in which the team placed 7th to 8th in the Major to win $7,500. Anyone who's familiar with the CS:GO esports scene understands the well-known fact that ENCE are the best team in all of Finland - though not the best in Europe. The organization in general, aside from CS:GO, is incredibly successful in a variety of other scenes, such as Rainbow Six: Siege, Overwatch, Hearthstone and Starcraft 2. The Counter-Strike roster is ecstatic about the deal, as highlighted in the following quote:  "ENCE is very happy to be working with Rizk, paving their way to the wonderful world of eSports. With a rapidly changing and growing industry, we are here to support Rizk to take the right steps in getting involved in eSports. Rizk is a tremendous partner for ENCE as it’s backed by a forward thinking and innovating iGaming company" - Marketing Director at ENCE, Joona Leppanen.  What exactly is Rizk.com? The website is an iGaming operator flagship brand stemming out of Gaming Innovation Group - the Maltese based company. Rizk's recently modeled sportsbook is perfect for quality eSports betting. The Rizk logo will appear on all the team's jerseys. However, for understandable reasons, the only player under 18 years old on the squad will not embrace the logo due to the fact that betting is illegal under 18 years of age in many countries. A very respectable decision. Anyway, the new jerseys will be on display this weekend at ESL One Cologne this weekend, as the team will fight to strengthen its grasp over Europe. 

Battalion 1944 - MU2 & You

Three beta weekends for MU2 have gone by and the community's response to the changes that have been introduced so far has been overwhelmingly positive. The changes so far have tweaked the weapons which are available to both sides (as well as adding some new ones), changed the layout and objects within maps to offer some new life to locations that have previously felt underutilised and abandoned. Alongside this we've also seen a brand new economy system! This has yet to see a stable setting, with changes being made constantly as the developers continue along the path to find the perfect balance that feels right for both sides. As these alterations continue to be made it seems to be drawing some players who had previously given up on the title back to the game, with the MAU (players that bought the game at launch, but didn't play last month) rising over the past few weeks. Battalion certainly had a shaky start but with this new update, it seems to be well along its path to success. With these new changes coming into fruition, and a few more to come along before MU2 sees it's full launch on July 12th, training is in full swing for the 18 teams set to attend Gallantry LAN on July 13th, and from what we've heard so far, it's going to be a very entertaining tournament indeed with most of the best EU teams showing up to attempt to take their share of the total prize pool of €6000, spread across the podium finishes.  If all this talk of Battalion is leaving you wanting to give it a shot for yourself, you can participate in the upcoming MU2 beta (July 5th- July 10th) by purchasing battalion and entering the key "therewillbebugs" in the beta section in steam. From there you can find yourself a team to participate in some of the upcoming Blitzkrieg Masters [$50,000] Qualifiers  [listed below], which we'll break down at length in a later piece. Event Date Gallantry 11th - 13th July Fragdelphia 3rd - 5th August Blitzkrieg Masters NA / EU Qualifiers 21st, 22nd, 28th, 29th July Blitzkrieg Masters EU Qualifiers 4th, 5th, 11th, 12th, 18th, 19th August Blitzkrieg Masters 27th - 30th September Author: Gráinne Hulton Co-Author: Mitch McBride
