Predator Gaming had prepared a lot for this year’s ESGS, in cooperation with OverRush and Elite Global Sourcing they had set up small tournaments for each games. The games that are in the list are DotA 2, Overwatch and Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds. The laptops used in the tournaments were the Predator 15 gaming laptops.
The Overwatch mini-tournament was based on the Junkenstein’s Revenge event with small modifications. With 4 players in the game, it was reduced to 2 which made the game very hard to complete. Aside from a 4-hero pool lineup to chose from, the full roster was open so you can choose any hero you want to complete the challenge. With the 1st day with the highest score of 3964. The teams struggled to find the right plan and no one finished the map that day. The 2nd and 3rd day went with better results, which made the teams finished the map with the 2nd day’s highest score of 7992 and the 3rd day’s score of 10,669 which had the highest score throughout the event. The top teams of each day went home with Predator Gaming Backpacks.
While DotA 2 challenge was a 1v1 tournament, some modifications were made like some items and actions were banned in the tournament like Soul Ring, Infused Raindrop, runes, bottle, activating a shrine, jungling and blocking the creeps that changes their direction (e.g. Fissure). The winning condition is kill enemy hero twice or destroy one tower. The King will try to protect his title against the other challengers of this tournament until he gets beaten by another opponent, who will then be the next “King”. The top five kings with the longest streak were logged onto the leaderboards and the top three received the Predator Gaming Backpacks, while 4th and 5th placers were given Predator tees.
And lastly, The PUBG tournament focuses on the duo queue were players need to achieve the highest rank to win, chicken dinner meaning an automatic victory. Most of the teams achieve the Top 1 or Winner winner chicken dinner in PUBG language. The highest rank duos in each day were awarded with Predator Gaming Backpacks.
Predator Gaming also showcase its new laptop which is on par with the ASUS ROG Zephyrus which is called the Tritton 700 Gaming Laptop. Specifications of the laptop is composed of an Intel Core i7-7700HQ, 32GB of DDR4 Memory, a 512 (x2) PCIE SSD in raid and a GTX 1080 8GB graphics card.
