September 10-11, 2016, we held WEGAME 2.0 festival in Kiev that brought together thousands of fans of e-sport, geek culture, and technological novelties.
The event included 4 cyber tournaments: two on CS:GO and two on Dota2. The general partner of competitions was ASUS CyberZone gamer club. There were also fan tournaments on CS:GO and FIFA with Na`Vi.G2A club stars: Arseniy ceh9 Trynozhenko and Eugene Yozhyk Mostovik. Besides, cyber sportsmen were giving signing sessions within both festival days.
A lot of interesting topics related with computer games were revealed within lecturers. The audience paid special attention to presentations of Wojciech Pazdur (The Farm 51), Yuri Shevaha (Frogwares), Alexey Sytyanov (8D Studio), and Dmitry Lekhno.
WEGAME 2.0 also impressed attendees with a two-day cosplay show. Our juries determined winners in the following categories: children aged 12 to 17; comics and belles-lettres; films, serials, and cartoons; and video games. The sponsor of the children cosplay was Kids Will, the city of kids’ professions, and UFO TV channel supported adult participants.
You will soon be able to find information about winners of all mentioned above competitions and photo report on the official festival website.
The major part of our event was the exhibition, including stands of companies producing game and geek products, as well as various innovative technological devices, such as drones and VR glasses. The most popular stands belonged to G2A gaming platform, The Farm 51 Polish game developer, and Raccoon gloves for virtual games. LEOGAMING was a payment partner.
We are going to organize the third festival, WEGAME-2017, in spring. Wait for more interesting events, well-known speakers, and technological novelties.
“Preparations have been already started. We are collecting opinions about WEGAME 2.0 in order to organize even better event next year. The festival will be more large-scale, the amount of stands in the demo zone will be increased, and more interesting speakers will come. We are going to divide lecturers and the cosplay show into separate zones for everyone’s convenience. WEGAME 3.0 will be at least two times larger according to applications for participation that we already get”, Katerina Markush, WEGAME project manager, told.
