Ganesh Chathurthi celebrations and the T-march have dampened spirits of City-based gamers. The Flipkart gaming tournament that began on Saturday saw a thinner turnout than expected. However, organisers are expecting more gamers to turn up today.
Yesterday was dedicated to the DoTA competition and for qualifying stage of Fifa. Hyderabad traditionally does not have many DoTA gamers, but a lot more people were expected to participate in the Fifa tournament.
Apart from Fifa, DoTA and Counter Strike, there are also games such as Super Street Fighter IV (XBox 360) and Sony Street Cricket (PS3) at the event. The tournament is planned in two stages and the first stage will end with the tournament in Hyderabad.
