Singapore’s IT Show is happening right now from March 16 to March 19 at the Suntec Convention Centre, Level 3. Yes, there are clearly a LOT of awesome things to buy like a funky-as-heck router and gaming laptops/peripherals. But there are some eSports-related events and tournaments happening there. Here’s what we found so far:
Team Faceless Meet & Greet
Arranged by the folks at Secretlab, fans can meet up with the team that recently secured a spot at the prestigious DOTA 2 tournament, the Kiev Majors 2017. It starts today on March 17; you can start registering at 4pm at Secretlab’s booth and hopefully secure your Faceless jersey. I’m sure you readers want to ask how Anucha ‘Jabz’ Jirawong pulled off all those sick plays.
ROG Hearthstone Championship
Game3.Asia and Asus ROG are teaming up to sponsor a Hearthstone tournament at the IT Show from March 18 to 19, with organization duties handled by Abyssus. With 64 players fighting in a ‘best of five’ format and a ‘bring your own device’ ruleset, it’s going to be an intense fight. The prizes alone are epic: first prize is a bunch of Asus and Steelseries swag and a qualification spot for the upcoming Tavern Hero Championship.
Ignite VR Stage Show
If you’re hankering for some VR action, you can head down to the Gamex stage where you can play games like Raw Data in front of a live audience. Better hurry; today’s the last day.
Prism+ X315 Monitor Giveaway
Okay, now we’re just stretching the ‘eSports’ criteria here. But c’mon: what self-respecting pro gamer wouldn’t want this sexy piece of hardware?!? The PRISM+ X315 and X40 monitors, from the folks in charge of the Singapore laptop brand Aftershock PC, are up to 34 inches, curved and sleek, and make your games look darn good. And you can get the X315 model for free via their Facebook giveaway contest.
Winners will be announced March 20, so get to it!
