Café Warz is pushing Indian eSports closer to you

So close that you can find it in your local Cafe.

Are you tired of dissing people on in-game voice chat? Are you still forced to type “gg” even after wrecking noobs? Take it a step further by joining your local café.

The good people at Neon Gaming Studio and Essence Transmedia have announced a unique six-day LAN event called ‘Café Warz’.  Though they start off with preliminary rounds from 1 - 6 September, the competition will go on for 48 days.

A total of 46 teams will be competing against each other in CS:GO and DOTA 2 and the championship will be conducted in four stages : Café Warz, The Uprising, Proving Grounds (Knockout and League Stage) and Ground Zero (Finals).

Competition! That means Money!

Ah! The smell of rain and sound of someone screaming as they avoid the inevitable potholes of Indian roads, all work in a unison, so yes friends, there is money. The event will allow gamers to play for a café owner at different venues and dates and a chance to win a prize pool of ₹70,000.

That may sound a bit low and you may argue that the Indian ESL rewards better, but think of this as a stepping stone towards the big boys at ESL. By localizing the eSports competition, the Indian eSports Championship allows amateurs and professionals to show off their hidden talents and keep themselves from being compared with “Sharmaji ka Beta”.
