X-Station eSports League
« on: March 06, 2018, 06:11:51 pm »

A crowd of over 200 showed up at the gates to X-Station last Saturday to take part in the X-Station eSports champions league which was hosting the first ever FIFA 18 and Clash Royale ranked tournament. The event showed a lot of promise given the number of participants who were up bright and early to make sure they don't miss out on their chance to take part in this event which was organized by Mobitel in partnership with Gamer.LK.



This event saw over 80 participants taking part for FIFA with over 30 contestants taking part for Clash Royale.
The event kicked off at 10:00 am with some intense FIFA 18 gaming action which was followed shortly thereafter by the start of the Clash Royale tournament which started soon after.

Every FIFA 18 match turned out to be intense and exciting as it had a knockout bracket forcing players to make sure that they play to their level best in each match they faced. Players had everything on the line as this was the first FIFA 18 ranked tournament in the country thereby earning the winner of this tournament, the exclusive bragging rights of being the best FIFA 18 player in Sri Lanka.



The Clash Royale tournament started shortly thereafter, adapting a double elimination bracket which was a little more forgiving incase you started the day slow but almost every participant still showed their interest to be the winners of the bracket, who would automatically be granted a free win during the grand finals which, all things considered is a pretty massive advantage.

We saw dominant performances coming out from Diluka Peiris who placed third, Ahmed ‘Shark’ Shaakir who became the runner-up as well as Dishan Nithrananthan who became the champion of the FIFA 18 final bracket. All of them showed intense amounts of focus combined with skill and determination, proving that they had put both the time and effort into being the best FIFA players in Sri Lanka.



On the flipside, we saw the usual dominance in Clash Royale coming out from Joel ‘Daniel’ Joung who made his way to the finals pretty easily given that he is a very talented young individual with a lot of experience in the game making it all the way to the winners bracket and thereby gaining an advantage going into the grand finals. Hanif Ameen fought valiantly to try and best his opponent which seemed like a colossal task at the time. Hanif making his way through the lower bracket finals beating out Charuka ‘Ghostking” SIlva in the lower bracket finals but soon to hit what seemed to be a mountain coming up against ‘Daniel’ failing to bring it home as he was taken out in a quick 2-0 sweep against ‘Daniel’ in a best of 5 which gave ‘Daniel’ the victory with the advantage he received in achieving the number 1 spot in the upper bracket.



The day was filled with alot of excitement and competition every participant giving it their best to bring down the walls that they faced. X station having a very comfortable setting giving you that feel of gaming from home was definitely a positive as players could concentrate on the matches at hand and give it their 100%.

All in all, a great start to the competitive FIFA 18 and Clash Royale season in Sri Lanka for the year 2018.
