A bit too ambitious or can these titles actually make a comeback in India?!
One of the top esports tournament organizers from India who recently expanded to Southeast Asia, Skyesports, after weeks of teasing its next LAN tournament, has finally announced the AMD Skyesports Championship 4.0 featuring Dota 2 and CS:GO.
Skyesports has caught the Indian gaming community by complete surprise by throwing this curveball, announcing two esports titles that despite having considerable userbases in India have never been too popular as competitive titles.
The AMD Skyesports Championship 4.0 is scheduled to take place on LAN in Mumbai sometime in mid-December. This is all the information that has been revealed by the organizer, so far, with more updates about the event to be announced soon.
AMD Skyesports Championship 4.0 officially announced with Dota 2 and CS:GO as competing titles
After weeks of teasing one of the most anticipated esports tournaments of the year, few details about the AMD Skyesports Championship 4.0 have officially been announced and the Indian gaming community has more than one reason to rejoice, as not only Dota 2 but even CS:GO is all set to make a comeback on LAN in Mumbai.
Last week on 18th November, Shiva "Marvel" Nandy - CEO and Founder of Skyesports, had publicly shared that the upcoming AMD Skyesports Championship 4.0 had been registered under the 'Professional Tournaments' tab within Dota 2.
Though the organizers have not officially revealed the prize pool attached to the Dota 2 event, the shared information stated that it will feature $15,000 USD in prize money.
At the same time, suggestions had started floating around that a Counter-Strike tournament should also take place, with many personalities like Shobith "TbOne" Rai, Manoj "VltSentinel" Kasyap, Rohit Jagasia, Rishab "Rakazone" Karanwal, and others simply tweeting 'Counter-Strike'.
As it turns out, the hints were accurate as CS:GO has also been announced as one of the titles to feature at the LAN tournament whose schedule will be revealed at a later point in time.
Even the LAN finals of the Skyesports Pokemon UNITE India Open 2022 which features a total prize pool of INR 22,50,000 ($27,165 USD) has been scheduled to take place as part of the AMD Skyesports Championship 4.0 in Mumbai.
