After collaborating with Alter Ego and Andika Rama, AMD seems to be increasingly nurturing the country’s esports ecosystem. This time they are presenting a competitive title for fighting gamers.
Their decision to choose a fighting game deserves thumbs up. The reason is, most tournaments in Indonesia are only about MOBA, be it on PC or on mobile platforms, or Battle Royale which is indeed on the rise in 2018.
A competitive event for a fighting game titled AMD Esports FIGHT! The 2018 Championship provides prizes of up to tens of millions of Rupiah and will be held on 22-23 September 2018.
There are 2 popular fighting games that will be competed in this event, namely Tekken 7 and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. In its release, AMD hopes to help tournament participants hone their skills in competitive matches so that they are ready to fight in the international arena.
AMD Esports FIGHT registration period! The 2018 Championship itself was held from 31 August to 17 September 2018. The rules for this competition later, from each game, 8 winners will be taken who will go through the preliminary rounds, semi-finals and finals.
As for the distribution of prizes, for Tekken 7 participants, AMD provides a total prize of 45 million Rupiah in the form of products and money. As for the Street Fighter V, AMD has prepared IDR 25 million in cash and products.
For those of you who are interested in watching the match directly, you can come directly to The Hook Resto & Bar, Jln. Cikatomas 2 No.35, Senopati, South Jakarta.
Apart from AMD Indonesia as the main sponsor, this event is also supported by various international brands such as MSI, Western Digital, ViewSonic, and SteelSeries. In addition, Unipin and DX Racer are also sponsors of this event.
Once again, the selection of fighting game competitions deserves appreciation. The reason is, most tournament organizers choose MOBA as the best-selling genre in Indonesia because they are afraid that the event will not be crowded with participants or spectators.
Will AMD continue to other less popular game competitions in Indonesia such as sports (FIFA, PES), FPS (CS: GO, Overwatch, R6S), or even Sim Racing considering they also sponsor one of Indonesia’s racing sim champions?
