Masters: Team HEAD HUNTERS – Satyam and Nilesh
“It was a great experience for us, thanks to JioGames and MediaTek for providing us the platform to showcase our talent. The Tournament spanned for more than 2 months, huge shout-out to the management for handling the stuff.
We didn’t have that much of a great start, but the third map turned out great for us, after which we had a quite consistent performance. The other Kalahari map in which we had a booyah also helped us a lot to boost our points and become the table toppers.
As you know consistency is the key to success in eSports, we were just aiming to be consistent, we could have lost our top post if we faced early-elimination in any game and you can’t afford to make mistakes if you’re playing on such a big stage.
The competition was very intense as the top 24 teams of the server were competing for the grand prize. Players are always waiting for a platform to showcase their skills and talent and JioGames provided them a huge platform, looking forward to more such Tournaments in the future from JioGames.”
