VIDEO GAMES AS AN OLYMPIC EVENT
A good news for the pro gamers across the world. Looking at the time spent by people on gaming and the boom of growth that happened in the GAMING INDUSTRY , the committe of OLYMPICS came to know the importance of VIDEO GAMES in the lives of people is as much as the importance of other games and sports. The rising craze of people towards this industry and people’s choice of timepass being gaming over anythimg else has forced the OLYMPIC COMMITTE to make their move and give us a platform to present ourselves.
A new eGames international tournament made its debue in the last RIO OLYMPICS but the event was just organised on a small scale. The event like any other OLYMPIC SPORT offered MEDALS rather than CASH PRIZE that is offered in various other tournaments. This time in the next SUMMERS i.e, 2018 OLYMPIC EVENTS eGAMES will be back and at a large scale.
Countries will send their sex- mixed squads i.e, teams comprising of both male and female professional video gamers, aged over 18 to come and participate in tournaments held in large venues. Currently the competition is decided to take place in SINGLE GAME like CALL OF DUTY and FIFA but IEGC has not yet announced which games will be played in the TOURNAMENT but has promised a diverse mix of competitions ……
Many statements have been made by officials regarding this –
- ” THERE WILL BE A MIX OF PC AND OTHER CONSOLE AND MAYBE EVEN MOBILE ” said Mr. KING !
- “A committe of eGAMES will be setup in each country that will organise various competitions and then decide the qualifying team.” said Mr. KING!
So all those who think of GAMING as more than just a timepass , its your time to do your best and rise above the rest !!!
