Last August we flew to Cologne to cover one of Europe’s biggest gaming events: Gamescom. The huge event attracts gamers from around the world to meet, discover the latest gaming innovations, try out the newest releases, and battle eSports rivals face to face. (Or at least screen to screen.) eSports are video game tournaments and there are tons of competitions globally where renowned players participate in games such as Call of Duty and League of Legends.
Over the event we filmed live eSports events, interviewed pro players and soaked in the electric atmosphere whilst fans met their gaming heroes. Amongst the professionals we interviewed was Zainab “zAAz” Turkie of team Dynasty Gaming, an all-female group with an international Counter Strike: Global Offensive winning streak. We got an insight into the passion and commitment that she dedicates to gaming and her team. Congratulations to all the eSports teams competing at Gamescom, we had a great time cheering you on!
