Hyperion Servers & Oceanic Esports League Announce APAC Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Tournament

Sticky Posted by oceanicsport November 5, 2020 in ESPORTSEventsNEWS

The Oceanic Esports League, a competitive platform for Oceania’s finest, will be hosting its first regional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament powered by Hyperion Servers’ Guam-based gaming servers.

Teams from Australia-New Zealand, Asia Pacific, and the United States’ West Coast will battle over the lion’s share of the inter-regional CS:GO competition’s USD $10,000 prize pool. Interested participants are more than welcome to register for the open qualifiers, which will kick off in December, to vie for the 10 allotted playoff spots.

The competition will be hosted on Hyperion Servers’ newly-launched Guam game servers. Guam, the U.S. island territory in the Pacific, is located approximately equidistant to the major surrounding nations and represents both a new space for casual inter-regional gaming, as well as a level playing field for competitive regional play.

The upcoming competition is Oceanic Esports’ first foray into competitive first-person shooters, following the success of their recent Dota 2 tournaments. Also adding in their fair share is Picklebet, an esports wagering brand that aims to continuously help develop the ANZ esports scene.

In addition to showcasing the capabilities of Hyperion Servers to connect gamers across APAC, the inter-regional tournament also seeks to continue Oceanic Esports’ mission of bringing an unparalleled experience to competitive gamers. 

More details about the tournament will be announced in the upcoming weeks. Fans and interested participants alike can follow the OEL on Facebook, Twitter, and Twitch to stay up-to-date with all the news about the league’s inaugural inter-regional CS:GO tournament.
