The virtual big match battle royale of Sri Lankan schools, the Inter-School eSports Championship organized by Gamer.LK with the power of Dialog Gaming was held for the second consecutive year on the 30th Sept – 1st Oct at Trace Expert – City, Colombo. The event set a new record of having participants from over 75 schools from across the country, bringing in over 500 students to compete.
In a battleground containing seven competitive team and individual titles, participants confronted each other attired in respective vibes to represent their schools. Among those who reigned prominent last year, there were more new faces who brought up a greater challenge than anyone expected.
While Gateway College, Lyceum College, and D. S. Senenayake College showed a very prominent performance last year, it was not as easy as it was for them this time around. The change became prominent during the DOTA 2 bracket when Gateway College was defeated by Nalanda College during the semifinal. From the other end of the bracket, Piliyandela Central College defeated Colombo South International proving eSports is strong in the country not just in Colombo.
Compared to last year’s Inter-School eSports Championship, this year lacked the presence of a fighting title for participants. However, the gap was unevenly bridged with the addition of Overwatch as an official team title for this year. Within the few teams who participated for Overwatch, a prominent team representing Royal College emerged strongly against the rest.
Passing the two days of epic encounters, the following teams and individuals were able to win the respective titles:
League of Legends
Winning two gold and two silver medals, Gateway College Colombo emerged victorious as the winners of the Inter-School eSports Championship for the second consecutive year. Closely being contested by Royal College, Gateway was once again able to overthrow the rest of the competition by securing the most number of medals of the championship.
While eSports took the main attraction of the Inter-School eSports Championship, there was a Game Development & Design workshop conducted by Chathu Vishwajith and Subhashi Palika from the Unity Game Developers Group Sri Lanka. Participants and visitors were also entertained by stalls such as Yamato One selling gaming merchandise.
With that, the two-days of school battles wrapped-up with titles secured, and new faces emerging. As we are closing in towards the end of the year, expect bigger and more glorious eSports event to come up!
