Popular esports company NODWIN Gaming has announced the Northeast Esports Summit on Wednesday. The event has a Rs 3.5 Lakh prize pool, where gamers play famous titles like Clash of Clans and Free Fire. The tournament registrations opened on 14 October, and the matches for the first qualifiers are set to take place on 28 October. The tournament will be held on Supercell’s strategy game Clash of Clans and Garena’s popular battle royale Free Fire.
Akshat Rathee, MD and Co-Founder of NODWIN Gaming, said, “Northeast India has been a remarkable region in the Indian esports circuit that has shown consistent growth over time.”
He praised the players of the eight states’ undying passion for the game and their humble demeanor. “With Northeast Esports Summit, we strive to bring forth the Northeast as a key region driving esports in the country. Northeast stands as a vital region for Indian esports for the fact that it holds massive potential in terms of gaming talents,” he further said.
The tournament will be divided into two stages, the online qualifiers, and the grand finals. Both the stages will have four online qualifiers each. Stating the summit rules, the firm said that the top teams from each qualifier would advance automatically to the Grand finals, which will be held on 5 and 6 December 2020.
