EGE 2016 | MSI Meeting Ground

EGE_MSI_01

So, maybe you want to give some of those competitive titles a go without the pressure of being in a tournament. Or maybe you want to actually play a tournament without having to find a bunch of teammates. Or perhaps you’re keen to just check out others play a game. Either way, there’s a space at the Electronics & Gaming Expo just for you.

As long as you are in the expo, you can head to the MSI Meeting Ground where ten of their gaming PCs will be setup and running a variety of titles all weekend including Dota 2, League of Legends, Rocket League, Doom, CS: GO and more.

But that’s not all, there is always a good reason to give things away, and in this particular case, they’re Raru vouchers. We will be giving them away via a number of mechanics, but the most important one will be additional ‘King of the Hill‘ mini-tournaments. You can expect some Dota 2 mid-lane action, Rocket League, a little FIFA, maybe a race – heck, the sky is the limit, so stay tuned on our social media or listen up at the venue.

Alongside that we will be doing a few random giveaways to entice you to come and have a go on the MSI PCs setup for your (yes, your) enjoyment.

All the equipment in the MSI Meeting Ground is supplied by MSI and their partners.
