We had our own booth during The Link, a minor gathering for the locals in Svelvik, Norway. Don’t get me wrong, when I say minor, I mean approximately 200 people.
The Link had their own competitions, such as Rocket League and CS:GO. And Air E-Sport won the Rocket League competition, bringing 3000 NOK home. But the most surprising win at The Link must have been the mix E-Sport team who won the CS:GO tournament against all odds. All of the professional teams were taken off guard, and the mixed team could take 15000 NOK home.
Luckily for the rest of the gamers who attended The Link, who ain’t professional, could always visit our booth to compete in our minor competitions. We held competitions in Quake Champions, Destiny 2, Fornite and we also collaborated with The Link with FIFA tournament. We also had a few different competitions, challenging Ulvespill staff members in different video games, finding Pikachu who always manages to escape our booth. (One time he hide in the freezer near the kiosk!)
Destiny 2 and Quake Champions, besides locating Pikachu, were the most popular competitions at our booth. In our Destiny 2 competition, we held a 1v1 rumble elimination matches in ‘Midtown’. Where Troy got the first place again, he also won our Quake Champions tournament last time we were on The Link.
The first place won Ulvespill merchandise such as a coffee cup and a mousepad. He also won Destiny 2 T-Shirt and Destiny 2 Cards as well as a full game code for Destiny 2 on PC.
Even though Troy won our Quake Champions tournament last time, he met a huge struggle this time. As his opponents were strong! The best part of this competition described by the attendees was that everyone won something during this tournament.
Mi5 Communications, who is our PR contact between Bethesda and us gave us a huge amount of digital codes, such as Champions packs, 1xBackpack, and 2000 in-game credits.
Besides different types of competitions, The Link also had their share of cosplayers, streamers and local football players who visited the event during the weekend. Streamers such as RubenGKS who streamed our Quake Champions tournament (video above) had their own “studio setup”. The Link also proved this year, that this event is for everyone! The age difference was from three weeks old to *not going to spoil the age* 50+.
We had a blast during this event, and we can’t wait to come back next year!
We will also like to thank our sponsors during this event, sponsoring us video game copies, merchandise etc that we could use in our competitions/giveaways!
