It is not often you see a gaming competition being held in Singapore, but that was exactly what was taking place down in The Colosseum on Iluma on 20 June. Organized by VR-Zone, The Colosseum played host to the country’s first WolfTeam competition, where 16 teams fought it out to claim the title of WolfTeam Champions.
For those who might not be unfamiliar with the game, WolfTeam is a free-to-play 3D first-person-shooter (FPS) MMORPG developed and published by the well-known game developer Softnyx. However, unlike most FPS games, WolfTeam features a unique game mechanic which allows a player to toggle between human and werewolf mode on the fly, with the latter switching the camera into a 3rd-person perspective when activated. There are also gameplay differences between the species: humans are capable of wielding a wide variety of firearms, while werewolves trade the ability to use firearms for greatly enhanced physical strength and other feats, such as being able to climb and run on walls.
Needless to say, the unique ability to switch between human and werewolf mode at the touch of a button meant that comventional FPS tactics were no longer as effective as they were before, and a quick finger in toggling between both modes would be critical for victory, as was aptly demonstrated in the competition.
The rules of the competition were also simple and straightforward: the 16 teams would compete in elimination matches played in the basic Deathmatch mode, where players were allowed to play only as humans and basic wolves, with all forms of cash items and buffs being banned for fairness.
In the end, the victory went to Averse Team 1, which defeated team CallUsNoobs to clinch the title as WolfTeam champions, while team Taxedo overcame team Infamous to secure their place in the competition as 2nd-runner ups.
For their efforts, Averse team 1 walked away with a total of $500 in cash, five SteelSeries Siberia v2 Full size headsets, three 300GB Western Digital VelociRaptor hard disks, a couple of ASUS M4A89GTD Pro motherboards and five Majastic Packages for the game. We are pleased to invite Ms Margaret Koh, Director of Sales, Asia South to present the prizes to the winners.
Second-placed team CallUsNoobs received $300 in cash, five SteelSeries Kinzu optical mice, three 300GB Western Digital VelociRaptor hard disks, a couple of ASUS M4A89GTD Pro motherboards and five Prestige Packages for the game, while third-placedTaxedo was awarded a cash price of $150, along with five SteelSeries QcK mouse pads, five Kingston KVR1333D3N9K memory sets (2 x 2GB) and five Luxury Packages for the game. We are pleased to have Lance Yap, Country Sales Manager to present the 2nd and 3rd prizes.
Last but not least, team Infamous was awarded $50 in cash and five sets of ICON 2.1 speakers.
We would like to thank all of sponsors; ASUS, Western Digital, Kingston, Steel Series for making this event possible and we look forward to the second WolfTeam competition in the near future!
