Our two teams were among 35 teams who collected almost 1,855,000 dinars! All of the donations go to Nađa Đerović for medications needed to treat cerebral palsy.
What Are Our Colleagues’ Impressions of the Tournament?
On the first day of the tournament, our teams were ready to join their strengths and do their best to achieve the best results!
Our colleagues were divided into two teams:
- Chvorovix (Zoran Obradović, Stevan Grujić, Dragan Špančić, Đorđe Stefanović, David Farkaš)
- Callisto (Teodora Odanić, Miroslav Mihnjak, Andrija Cvejić, Jelena Žarić, Aleksandar Lukić)
The captain of Chvorovix team Zoran took this competition very seriously and suggested that the team should exercise before the tournament. Both teams were more than happy to roll up their sleeves and train for a few days before the match.
Our colleague Jelene shared with us that even though she isn’t a CS:GO expert, she was thrilled to join one of the teams at this event.
“I play games quite often and I didn’t want to miss this chance to support this charity event together with our company and my colleagues. I have been familiar with Counter-Strike all my life, so, even though this is not my favourite game, I had so much fun because the atmosphere in our team was amazing.” – said Jelena.
What Was the Organisation of the Tournament like?
The tournament was supported by the VAC anti-cheat system. Besides that, the event was supervised by dedicated admins who monitored whether players were following the rules and needed time-outs.
“If I had a chance to take part in some well-known Counter-Strike tournament, I imagine it would look exactly like this one. The organisation of the tournament was top-notch. Admins were there to take care of the time, so that nobody is too late and that it is a fair-play.” – said our colleague Stevan.
So, next time when you see a bunch of software developers in front of computers, don’t jump to conclusions. Maybe they’re not programming, but playing video games for a good cause. 🙂
