Logitech recently organised a free gaming event with the support of Colosseum and Insidious Gaming to promote and strengthen the gaming culture in Singapore.
The main highlight was a DOTA 2 tournament, which pitted eight teams of five players against each other in under a variant tournament rule set. The participating teams were a mix of both experienced and casual gamers. After three competitive rounds, Team Mark emerged as the winner, taking home the bragging rights and Logitech G products.
In addition to the DOTA 2 tournament, there was a variety of gaming booths set up for the attendees. The gaming booths included the classic Donkey Kong and a mouse clicking game which tested the gamers’ reflexes. The game scores were shared on a live scoreboard for players to challenge one another. The event was a great way for gamers to just get together to have fun. It also served as a memorable experience for many of them who were ending their school term break.
