So we here at Aspect of Gaming have been drafted by Digital Nationz to do some SERIOUS stuff for Digital Nationz 2014 this September (27th & 28th). Organising a massive LAN with two tournament by us and 3 other tournaments going on, as well as running two detailed gaming workshops, is taking a hell of a lot out of us. But hey, we’re committed 100% to making it the best experience for you, so what’s sacrificing a little personal time and sleep, eh?
We’re running two kickass tournaments, alongside 3 others (by Oceanic Gaming, Adversity Gaming and Standing Fierce), with MASSIVE prize pools and a chance for true glory. Check out the details…
DotA 2 – with a whopping $2000 cash prize pool ($1500 1st, $500 2nd) + peripherals from Logitech! 16 team slots are available for this LAN tournament and the format is Double Elimination on Captain’s Mode. When there’s a crazy prize pool like this and a main stage for matches to be broadcasted from, you know there’s no way you’ll can miss it.
Hearthstone – accompanied by a $400 cash prize pool ($300 1st, $100 2nd) + peripherals from Logitech! Our DNZ14 Hearthstone Tournament will be epic. We ran our first one back at Ping Zero 45 LAN and people went nuts over it. THIS tournament runs a Swiss style bracket into a double elim bracket, so you get to play the entire first day no matter how many times you win or lose. OH and there’s 64 player slots in this tournament – it’s gonna be huge!
So BUY A TICKET (choose Logitech G BIGPIPE LAN Pass – General Admission), SIGN UP TO THE LAN and REGISTER YOUR TEAM (Dota2) / AS A PLAYER (Hearthstone) for your chosen tournaments. You can compete in all tournaments BUT if there’s a CLASH you’ll simply have to decide which tournament you want to forfeit a match for. Simple as that :).
NOTE: LAN is Bring Your Own PC/Device (BYOD) so make sure you’ve got a laptop/ desktop to bring before you sign up!
We’re hosting two workshops, all around “Becoming Part Of Your Favourite Game“. We’ll be covering two topic very close to our heart – “Live Streaming” & “Gaming Communities” – teaching you how to deal with each. And hey, these are free walk-in workshops on the show floor so don’t be shy!
