- ASCII Gaming Event
Qualifiers: July 22, 2016
Finals: July 25, 2016
A competitive LAN Gaming event was organized on the 22nd and 25th of July, 2016, by the Association of Students of Computer Science and Information Technology with Innovation (ASCII) with the aim of bringing together students of different departments and identifying talented individuals.
A lot of planning had to be done in order for this event to take place. A dedicated LAN-enabled lab was chosen and set up by student volunteers a week prior to the event, with support from IT Services. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, a first-person shooter game, was to be hosted for the same.
The preliminary round saw a huge turnout of approximately 75 people, an excellent response considering a host of other events taking place simultaneously. 18 were shortlisted for the next round. Of these 18 participants, 6 made it to the final, which was held on July 25th, 2016. The top 3 players were declared the victors.
The feedback from the participants was favourably good. The coordinators of the event did a fantastic job managing the overwhelming number of students that turned up and it helped further develop their skills at managing such events. The event was an enormous success and has acted as a precursor for developing a Gaming Cell under ASCII in the coming months.
- Gaming Event Report
Mini militia is a multiplayer 3rd person shooter game exclusively for mobile platform.
Since mini militia is famous among youngsters due to its multiplayer feature, with the help of its popularity ASCII conducted a mini militia event, in which the purpose of this event was to involve players to play as team and compete other teams.
There was a total participation of 48 students, with the team limit of 4 students. The time Limit for the First round was 5 minutes then for second round was 3 minutes, round three for three minutes, round four for 3+ 1 minute.
The Event was conducted in Open Audi and Hotspot was given for Students through the Laptop. The Most awarded player- Arjun KP.
As an improvement for the above game, we have planned to replace laptop for cell phones for hot spot creation and better connectivity. It was observed that, due to busy schedule and exams overhead there was lots of works to be handled by very few people which made the task tougher. And Low battery issues by participants were also a problem encountered.
As this event was completely done by second years, they got a rich experience in conduction of an event, which in turn made them confident to take up higher responsibilities.
