What to look forward to:
When we went to i62 we had so much fun exploring the indie section. There were heaps of upcoming games we’d never heard of, but they were extremely fun to play!
It was also interesting watching the Call of Duty League, as a few of us had no prior interest in E-sports. We Suddenly found ourselves cheering for teams we’d never seen before and cheering them on similarly to a game of football or rugby! The atmosphere was vibrant with people cheering, lights flashing and journalists commentating the game for viewers at home.
If you are an esports CWL fan you must check out our interviews with some of the players.
We are most certainly going to be walking around i63 and look forward to talking to you!Let us know if you’ll be coming to i63 via Twitter (@caffeinegaming_)
