Assam is a great state and there are innumerable gamers here. Every now and then when I go for a walk, I stumble upon people gossiping about Awps, head-shots, rushing B and the amazing songs played in Indian CS:GO. However, we can’t think of gaming as a serious business because of lack of opportunities. This is what Hopper’Z Arena is trying to change.
Vikash Goyal dreams to create opportunities for Assamese gamers and provide them with a platform to compete against each other, showcase their talents and earn big, all by playing their choice of games.
This tournament is the first chapter of the journey and we have miles to travel.
