This autumn the Dnieper and Capital gamers have immersed themselves in the frantic atmosphere of games created by the representative office of Acer together with Comfy retail on Predator Gaming Day. The FreshMarketing event agency team has been on the spot of event and of course has assisted in organization of this cool gamers’ event.
The first «users of hardware» were the fans of video plays from Dnieper, where a huge number of visitors gathered in shopping and entertainment center Karavan. The gamers could test their professional skills in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, FIFA 19 and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. In addition, the event was presented by a demo area where one could try out the Acer gaming laptops, including monstrous Predator 21X, the monitor Predator X27, VR-headset Acer Mixed Reality and many others.
In addition, the famous gamers from Dnieper were invited to the Acer Predator Gaming Day. The visitors had a chance to play in on team with Yegor «markeloff» Markelovym, the famous Ukrainian Counter-Strike gamer from FlipSid3 Tactics team or play a game of football with Ruslan «Ruha» Soroka — one of the most popular FIFA gamer in Ukraine and the founder of Ruha YouTube-channel. Moreover, the participants had the opportunity to conduct interviews with celebrity guests and make photo-autograph sessions (everyone could take pictures and get photos).
On 10 gaming computers, there was a tournament among the gamers in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. At the event, the gamers tried the mode DeathMatch, which does not take into account the result of the team, but only the individual result (frags). This optimized mechanics has allowed spending within one day 4 mini-tournaments, that is, the gamers did not have to wait 9 hours before the final and the award of prizes. Such sequence has caught a fancy to the participants. The total winners’ pot of the tournament has valued more than 500 000 UAH in Dnieper and the same amount has been collected in Kiev, thus, the total amount has valued more than 1000000 UAH. The participants could spend the gained certificates on purchase of the gaming equipment Acer in Comfy retail.
Kiev has also become a playground for video-gamers. Predator Gaming Day was organized in the shopping and entertainment center «Lavina Mall», where besides the demo zone a tournament was organized. Special guests were invited for eSports fans - Alexey «uHo» Maletskiy and Alexander «petr1k» Petrik – the most popular commentators and analysts with truly limitless information about Counter-Strike. And for FIFA fans the real surprise became the guest — Alexey «ForlanFS» Merser − one of the strongest cybersportsmen of the region, 2-times vice-champion of Ukraine in FIFA and the winner of many national tournaments.
