Bangalore, August 17, 2016: Elimination rounds of the Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup (TEGC) will be held here between August 19 and 21.
The worldwide championship is back this year on a much larger stage: four more cities have been added to its itinerary and the TEGC will now be hosting elimination rounds in Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata, in addition to Mumbai and Delhi. The tournament will challenge DOTA 2 gamers to battle for the cup and winners will take home a cumulative cash prize of Rs 500,000. The tournament is divided into two rounds for each city - Eliminations and a Grand Finale – with the former being conducted from select offline venues as per a pre-set schedule.
The Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup is a venture by the Taiwan Excellence - an initiative of Taiwan’s Bureau of Foreign Trade and executed by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA).
To participate in the contest, enthusiasts can register on http://www.tegamingcup.com/#Schedule. However, it should be noted that registering online does not mean a team slot is confirmed. Participants will have to be present with their teams at the venue between 10.00 a.m. and 12.00 noon on the first and second day of the event to get a registered slot confirmed. Registrations will close on the second day of the event once the slots are full.
