ENCE at Assembly
Assembly returns once again for a summer outing and that means not only is there a huger LAN party but some of the best eSports in the country. ENCE will be there in full force for the eSports events but also special fan events throughout the weekend (more details to follow).
The eSports events will run from Thursday 3rd to Saturday 4th August at the Messukeskus Exhibition Hall in Helsinki Finland. Most notable are the new Rainbow Six team and the Overwatch team as they look to prove themselves the best in the Nordics. Below you can read more info on the individual events that our teams will be competing in and we hope to see you there.
ASUS Republic of Gamers will be hosting the first ever Overwatch tournament at Assembly Summer 2017. The event will see eight teams come together to fight it out for a $9500 prize pool and title of the first Overwatch Assembly champions. ENCE will be joined by notable teams like Helsinki REDS, Rest in Pyjamas and a handful more.
The tournament will start off with a 2×4 team group stage with 2 teams from each group making it through to the playoffs. First group games will start on Thursday 3rd and the playoffs will be played throughout Friday 4th. We hope you cheer on ENCE.OW as they set out to prove themselves as the best team in Finland and secure a victory at the event.
The newly acquired Rainbow Six team will be at Assembly in their first LAN under the organisation name. They will be competing in the Nordic Championship where they will be looking to claim a victory to prove themselves the best in the Nordics before heading off to Gamescom for Pro League Finals.
The team which have already shown they are considered one of the best in the world with their relatively comfortable victories in the EU Pro League will no doubt be expected to pick up the win here. We are really excited to be able to have them play their first LAN on home soil and we hope you come along to cheer them on in the Nordic Championship Final.
The Overwatch team will not only be competing in the official ASUS ROG tournament but they have also managed to secure themselves a final spot of the ESPORTSM 2017 Finals. They will be going up against a tough opponent in the form of Rest In Pyjamas and will be looking to take down the powerhouse team. The event will be played Friday 4th at 12:00 and we hope that you come along to the venue and cheer on the team.
