TeleTrip is conceptualized as an offline community building event.
TeleTrip dreams to tele people outside of Singapore to have a different gaming experience. It is a great opportunity to make new friends, or even find new team mates. We take care of your travel logistics like getting there & back, hotels and gaming space so that you can do what you love - with friends.
We seek to maximise the benefits of games, and mitigate its negatives by playing together. Participants through FUN experience:
- Teamwork – The 30-40min TeleTalk on Teamwork gives everyone simple pointers in how to work as a team which they will apply throughout the whole day of play.
- Making New Friends – We place participants into teams, mixing the pros and amateurs. They learn to work with gamers of different skill levels and people of different backgrounds.
- Strategic Thinking – Teamwork is only effective when the team plays strategically. Gamers will need to work smart together to defeat the other teams.
TeleTrip Key Components
Variants of TeleTrip
Traveling overseas to game only allows for a small percentage of gamers to participate. TeleTrip Express was created by condensing the key components into a one-day event in Singapore to allow more gamers to join us. Although the hours of confined travelling together and late night game plays that create deep bonds are not present, there is still much that gamers can enjoy in a day. We can run this with higher frequency and more gamers can join us.
Adapted from TeleTripExpress, TeleTrip Campus is organized in partnership with Singapore schools, within their school premises if possible, where we condense the key components of TeleTrip into a one-day event. The registration price is lower as the gamers will BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptops) for optimal performance. Option of computers at a cost might be provided depending on space and other factors.
"After trying to form a team for over 2 years, it has helped me change my perspective of a team compared to a group. Of course, only time will tell when I try to apply what I've learnt in real life applications in future but the workshop was beneficial. Although, I think it was really too short and more emphasis could have been on the learning / discussions / sharing during the trip."
"I learned that there are differing ways of communication and leadership that can both be equally effective in different situations. I also learnt that having players with small hero pools really does restrict the draft a lot and that I need to expand mine to avoid this."
"Was playing Dota 2 since 2013, never know that effective communication is one of the key that lead to winning. Although TeleTrip Express is only a day, I learnt that effective communication could be one of the key that lead to winning. By the end of the day, discussion over matches with pizza is one of the best things"
