UPDATE: What a weekend, the Garden of Might eSports event was awesome!
Hosted by the talented team at Standing Fierce in association with the team from Got Game this competition is all about fighting games, including the massively popular Tekken, Street Fighter, Smash and MvC we’ve come to expect as well as newcomers like the just-released DragonBall FighterZ!
This eSports event promises some epic matches between the very best fighting game players from around New Zealand, and a few sneaky internationals have snuck in too 😛 The current NZ Street Fighter V Champion, known as “Ghost Chips” will be playing at this event and also “Burnout” from Australia will be in attendance – who also happens to be the community manager for XSplit and player.me!
As I write this now all competition spots are full, but you can grab the most up-to-date information from the Garden of Might website if you’re wanting to see if you can sneak a quick entry for the event in.
For those wanting to check out the action in person, this one is taking place at Christchurch Casino so be sure to bring your ID along, there will also be spot prizes given away over the weekend-long event.
Doors open at 10am till late both on both days, March 17th and 18th.
For those wanting to watch the matches online, the eSports event will also be streamed via the Standing Fierce Twitch Channel so we can all tune in, below is a video from the recent Auckland Ranbats event if you’re wanting to see some sweet fighting action right away!
