With a Dh20,000 ($5,445) prize up for grabs, gaming enthusiasts from around the Middle East, are set to battle it out to the finish in the double elimination tournament that will be held over this weekend.
Competitors from the 25 participating teams will have the chance to warm up against Counter-Strike champions, Emil “HeatoN” Christensen and Abdisamad “SpawN” Mohamed; the Swedish duo helped in the design and development of the advanced gaming monitor, BenQ’s 120Hz XL2410T, which will be used during the tournament.
“In the Middle East and Africa region, we see a huge potential for technology that takes the gaming experience to a whole new level,” said Manish Bakshi, general manager of BenQ for the Middle East and Africa.
“Packed with intuitive features and host of advanced modes, BenQ’s 120Hz XL2410T has appealed to gamers the world over.”
“We are extremely pleased to bring gaming legends HeatoN and SpawN to Dubai, who co-developed one of the key features of the monitor -the Shooting Game mode,” Bakshi added.
“The aim was to create a display mode that provides gamers with a totally accurate representation of each scene in a virtual world. We have had an overwhelming response to the tournament so far and look forward to hosting a series of gaming events with Que Club Network Games in the future,” Bakshi concluded.
