Blog Dota 2
Guys, I understand perfectly well that blogs with complaints are not always very interesting, but I simply can’t help but talk about what happened today on the main football arena of Ukraine.
Shock, sadness, anger, disappointment - these are just some of the emotions that I now experience. But let's go in order.
eSports exhibition WeGame at NSC Olimpiyskiy
“The WEGAME Festival is the first event in Ukraine covering all facets of the world of interactive entertainment. The event includes a grand exhibition of electronic entertainment, a tournament in several esports disciplines and a competition for professional cosplayers. Here you can play the latest computer and video games. In addition, the guests of the festival will be able to see the cosplayers' defile and try out the virtual reality systems that will go on sale in 2016."
This is how the organizers described this event on their official website. Well, let's go through it first. The WeGame staff opened its doors, or rather, the doors of the NSC Olimpiyskiy, to visitors with a delay of three hours. Instead of the promised nine in the morning local time, the main entrance opened only at 12:00. The number of stands inside surprised, alas, not from the pleasant side. The number of stands interesting to the visitor could be counted on the fingers of one milling machine operator's hand. Of all the booths, only the stand of Natus Vincere stood out, where the guys could play Counter Strike: Global Offensive and, possibly, win some prizes. Also, the presence of people who came to the event pleased the chief director of the NaVi organization, Alexander "ZeroGravity" Kokhanovsky, although he stayed there for about 20 minutes. Of the other stands, only Razor could be singled out, which, in the absence of its direct competitors, advertised its products to potential buyers.
Event visitors had a chance to play the new Mortal Kombat, and not just like that, but directly on a huge monitor in the very heart of the arena, where the football field is located. By the way, although the idea is interesting, the organizer also got it sideways, since the football arena itself has become a “recreation area” for most visitors, for lack of another. And of course, the picture displayed on the big screen was accompanied by characteristic sounds from the game (too loud, it should be noted), which greatly interfered with the rest of the tired.
