Showcasing the talents and skills of cyber athletes from across the country, Sri Lanka’s flagship Esports tournament, Sri Lanka Cyber Games 2018 drew over 3,000 participants this year.


Gamer.LK - the leader in Esports and Digital Entertainment experiences, organised the largest Digital Entertainment & Technology expo in Sri Lanka for the second consecutive year - Dialog Play Expo Sri Lanka at the Sri Lanka Exhibition & Convention Centre (SLECC). The three-day expo showcased the latest technology and experiences available for digital entertainment enthusiasts and featured Sri Lanka’s largest Esports championship and the Colombo Comic Expo.


Play Expo 2018 saw the participation of numerous global technology and entertainment brands such as DELL, who had exclusive experience zones at the expo allowing participants to experience the power and features of their products. Leading multinational companies such as Dialog Gaming who are reputed for their fast, low latency connections powered Play Expo and also had their experience zones showcasing their entire lineup of digital entertainment products and services.


Play Expo once again played host to Sri Lanka’s flagship Esports and Video Game Championship - the 11th edition of Sri Lanka Cyber Games (SLCG), alongside the Colombo Comic Expo (CCx) which featured Sri Lanka’s largest pop-culture celebration, numerous panel discussions, artist showcase panels and the finest cosplay experience in the country.


SLCG was recognised as a ranked event by the Sri Lanka Esports Association (SLESA) of which the 9 main Esports clans in Sri Lanka, namely Death Pact, Division Esports, Evox E-Sports, Maximum eSports, n00b Alliance, Phoenix Gaming, TECH Morph Gamers, Wolfgang e-Sports and Xiphos eSports took part in the tournament.


After three days of intense, nail-biting Esports action and fierce in-game rivalry, Phoenix Gaming defended the coveted overall Championship title for the third consecutive year with Xiphos Esports and n00b Alliance securing the second and third places respectively.


Thanks largely to the efforts of Gamer.LK in promoting Esports as a gender-neutral sport, this year’s Championship saw an increased participation of girl gamers with an exhibition Women’s Call of Duty match also taking place at the event. In addition, a separate Kid’s Esports segment was also held in the aim of promoting competitive video gaming to the future generations.
