You may have already seen or heard a lot of competitions prepared for tomorrow’s ICT Week celebration. Some of the popular competitions during this kind of event include; Web Designing Contest, Logo Designing, Digital Poster Making Contest, Open Quiz Show, and Digital Animation Competition. While these are designed to test a student’s knowledge and skills, there are also competitions that make ICT Week in ICI much more interesting.
Video games capture the interest of people at any age level. They are designed to give entertainment all while teaching a player a bunch of new stuff. Many ICI’ans are known to play video games and they are good at them. Whether it’s a First Person Shooter (FPS) or a Real Time Strategy type of game, students are simply excited to get their hands on the mouse button to shoot enemies or cast spells against their opponents and “pwn” them. Two of the world’s most popular videogame titles, Left 4 Dead 2 and DotA will be featured in tomorrow’s event.
Left 4 Dead 2
Players will play the role of zombie apocalypse survivors, shooting their way out of difficult situations to save themselves and cleanse the undead-infested world, one bullet at a time. The Left 4 Dead 2 contest will be held at Rm. TL1 from 9 am to 12 noon.
Defence of the Ancients (DotA) is a real-time-strategy game designed to be playable for up to 10 players with 5 members from two factions: The Sentinel and The Scourge. Originally designed as a mod for Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, DotA quickly became one the most popular RTS games of all time with a standalone sequel released by Valve last 2012. The DotA contest will be held at Rm. CL4 from 9 am to 12 noon.
For those who are not fan of videogames but love to see their fellow ICI’ans move to the beat of the music and battle it out to the dance floor, a Dance Showdown contest will be held at ICI Annex 3 HRMLEC1 from 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm.
With these competitions, celebrating ICT Week in ICI is more fun and more exciting.
