The winners from the Resonate Total Gaming festival eSports tournaments in Scotland have been announced.
The festival took place in Glasgow on the weekend (July 29nd to 31st), and saw the likes of Aegis Gaming win the CSGO tournament 16-2 against Pick n Mix.
In the Hearthstone competition, Spikemaster beat Marcus 3-0, while Akkrin defeated Pink Panthers in a best-of-one series in League of Legends.
The event attracted more than 6,000 gamers to Glasgow.
Fran McIntyre, managing director of festival organisers QD Events, said: “The aim was always to galvanise the gaming community, from parents who play with their kids to hardcore gamers, encouraging them to come together under one roof and celebrate everything gaming. We accomplished that, and the visitor numbers and positive feedback are testament to the festival’s quality and variety.”
Jon Blayney, events and PR manager at Xtreme Gaming, who ran the tournament, told eSports News UK: “We had a great crowd at the event, they really got involved and for Resonate’s first tournament we were more than happy with the skill level of the attendants.”
Like Insomnia, the event provided a mix of eSports and video games including Pokémon, Star Wars and Minecraft, and had an exhibition area with the likes of Scottish PC builder Utopia Computers in attendance. There was also a junior zone for children.
Gfinity and Versus Scotland were also on board to help visitors take part in tournaments including Halo, TrackMania, Street Fighter V and FIFA.
