Gfinity are one of the leading tournament organisers from the UK. Considering how big Gfinity is it is really disheartening to see UK lagging behind in so many eSports. They are most well known for CSGO And Lol but even in these fields, they lack a good and dominant scene. The UK CSGO scene is full of roster changes and backstabbing stories.
Gfinity has decided to further the dota2 scene in UK. Dota2 is one of the most well known MOBA games in the world. It features an annual event called the International which features a prize pool in excess of $18 million.
Gfinity has decided to launch Varsity games which will see the universities in UK compete against each other. The four universities for the first event invited are :
- Kings College London
- Imperial College London
- The London School of Economics
- University College London
In addition to the inaugural Varsity Games Dota 2 tournament, attendees will be able to meet the Gfinity team who work on live tournaments as well as take part in a variety of activities; including an overview of “Esports and Competitive Gaming in the UK: A Summary and Future Possibilities”.
