First TeleTrip Express Singapore 2018

The first TeleTrip Express Singapore 2018 happened last Saturday on 24 Nov 2018. Excitment filled the air about 15min before 10am when players started streaming into Gam3.Asia. Sat mornings are not easy for gamers, as some of you might know. We are so encouraged and was determined to put in our best for the gamers who came.

We kicked off the day with the Teamwork TeleTalk by Ruth Lim (a.k.a. potatofluff). The TeleTalk gives the understanding and premise of teamwork for the TeleMatch that follows for the whole day.

From Strangers to Teams

At the start of Teletrip Express, most of the players were shy and afraid to share their thoughts and ideas. This was partly because many of them are strangers and partly because they felt they were not good enough.

During the breaks between games, the players were encouraged to contribute their perspectives as they might be a great value to their team. The most important thing is that they do their best and trust their team to have their backs.

Their progress within a day was astonishing. Even though the teams had players of different ages and skill gaps (from beginners to veterans), they were playing head-to-head and games were really intense and exciting. The youngest player (aged 14) stepped up, leading his older teammates to victory! Perhaps you can try to guess who is the 14-year-old player of the winning team from the photo below.

It was amazing to see how everyone opened up to each other, discussing strategies and encouraging each other. Everyone gave their input and the leaders provided their respective teams with good directions. This was a huge contrast to the initial first game they played which was full of uncertainty. Great job everyone!!

Prize Presentation and Pizza Party

We had five TeleTrip Express winner tags for the winning team as we did previously. This time round, instead “Rampage Achiever”, we gave an award to “Best Support”. Besides the winner tags, the winning team brought home the hand drawn postcards by Botjira and the high-treasured Dota 2 figurines. We also had three prizes: a SCOGA Esports T-shirt, a mousepad and a mouse for correct answers to a quiz.

It was hard to say goodbye so much so that the staff at Gam3.Asia had to “chase” us out so that they can clear and close the area. Appreciate your kind patience the staff at Gam3.Asia. Some continued to game at home till past midnight through Discord. Till we meet and play again in person… meantime, online works too!

What would you do in a Bo3 series when it's the first time knowing and playing with your teammates against a cheese-strat team 🧀? . . . #FBF to #TeleTrip Express last November, I remembered Team 3 who had cheesy Warlock+Grimstroke+Global Ulti strat. I loved their enthusiasm and how they got so engrossed discussing cheesier strats to execute even though it's the first time they've met. . It was interesting to watch Team 3 against Team 1 because the latter's team was the total opposite: shy and unsure of their draft. Expectedly, Team 3 won in the practice and first Bo1 match. .
During the break, I went over to Team 1 and asked about their situation. Immediately, I noticed that the player who is most comfortable playing carry was playing support instead, and immediately asked her about it. . She explained that she hasn't been playing DOTA for a long while and was afraid that she won't do a good job as a carry, knowing it's a resource-demanding role. . The team's response towards her confession was pleasantly encouraging and sweet. . Instead of blaming each other, the team refocused on what they could do and how to make each other comfortable. For example, the versatile teammate offered to swap roles so that she could play her comfort role while the mid player did his best to buy time for her to farm up and fight whenever she feels ready. The remaining two teammates took up the reporting role and made sure to respond whenever their carry was in trouble. It was really amazing watching them cover up each other's weaknesses with their own strengths. . Team 1 managed to make a comeback and win with a 2-1 score, proceeding to the finals of TeleMatch 💪🏻. The scoreboards of their three games are in the photos (Guess who's Team 1 and Team 3 XD) . Every TeleTrip is always a pleasant surprise, to see how gamers can actually step up as a team and overcome each game despite their ages or skill levels. . Hope that you could join us on TeleTrip Campus NUS on 9 March to experience this
for yourself 😊! . . . More info and registration link in profile. It’s open to public! . . . #teletrip #teletripcampus #dota2 #singapore #sgig #campus #gaming #games #pizzaparty

What would you do if it's your first time knowing each other and having one of the youngest and least experienced player in your team during a competition? . . . During #teletrip , I remembered Team 2 was quiet and tense during their practice match, as they were still trying to warm up to each other. It ended up with a loss and they knew they had to change the situation or risk the spot in the finals. . Remembering the need to align their goals as a team, they decided to focus on the specific objectives together. Instead of ignoring their youngest player, they encouraged him to focus on the one thing he was confident at, which was reporting the opponent's situation and position. . I remembered their second game, which was an intense one-hour long game. In order to have a higher chance of sieging the opponent's high ground, Team 2 knew that they had to obtain Roshan and Aegis. It was risky as the opponents had global skills to scout them out. . This was when their youngest player shared that the opponents might be nearby and decided to distract them by sacrificing himself so that the team could secure this objective. The rest trusted him and focused on their objectives. . While scouting, he managed to bump into the opponent's mid. Instead of running away, he focused on his objective to distract the enemy and pretended to be lost in the enemy's jungle. During the cat-and-mouse chase, not only did he manage to kill off the mid but also baited two other opponents to chase him. The team managed to secure the objective and that was one of the key factor in the victory of the game. . With team's encouragement and trust for each other, every player was empowered and Team 2 emerged as the winning team! . Every TeleTrip is always a pleasant surprise, to see how gamers can actually step up as a team and overcome each game despite their ages or skill levels. . Hope that you could join us on TeleTrip Campus NUS on 9 March to experience this for yourself! . . . More info and registration link in profile.

We had so much fun at Tele Trip KL – DOTA 2 that we decided to condense the 3D2N into a WHOLE DAY gaming in Singapore.

First TeleTrip KL – DOTA 2

So we came back from Subang, KL Malaysia on Wed late night after 3 days 2 nights of Tele Trip KL – DOTA 2 at Pantheon, an esports center. We started off with a dream of DOTA 2 gamers coming together for trips that is all about DOTA 2. We imagined how fun it will be that everyone in the trip all plays DOTA 2 and thus it is an easy conversation starter where we can make new friends and play the game with people we otherwise would have never met before. So we decided to put out Tele Trip and see how many DOTA 2 players will respond. We were hoping for a minimum of 30 sign ups so that we can book a nice coach, but in the end we had 10 which is perfect for a nice mini bus. So we decided to go ahead. This almost insane idea became a reality for us this week.

Highlights of the First Tele Trip

From the feedback of our trippers, all of them love the DOTA 2 gameplay time they had and also the new friends they made through the trip. We had a bunch of Malaysian friends who came together as a team to come and play with us on the last day. It was great making new friends with Malaysian players! Both having fun playing and making new friends were the objectives of Tele Trip. We wanted gamers to enjoy playing the game together, rather than playing on your own in your own room at home. After some intense gaming, the meals together were key points of bonding where we continued to talk more about the gameplay before and discuss topics about DOTA 2.

Pantheon Esports Center was definitely a highlight for the gamers as it is not just a LAN cafe. Being able to play in the VIP rooms gave much motivation to them and they loved the experience of playing in a team within a private enclosed room. Just want to take this opportunity to thank Pantheon for their generous hospitality. When we had problems with our game accounts with the game server, they troubleshoot to make sure things work. The team switched 10 computers to run the game from hard disk instead of server to minimise the possibility of game interuption. Kudos to the Pantheon team who tirelessly help us beyond their call of duty!  The gamers took a break from DOTA 2 and tried Omni VR gaming as well which was great fun.

With playing together as one of the objectives of the Tele Trip, the mini workshop by Ruth Lim (Potatofluff) is about playing as a team. We split our 10 gamers into two teams, and not everyone in the team knew or played with each other on the same team before. The two teams worked towards the mini friendly match on the last day. The two teams played against each other and the winning Singapore team played against the Malaysian team.

The winning team got winner tags with limited edition DOTA 2 pins to remember their victory in this trip. None of the gamers went home empty handed as we had a goodie bag for each of them too. Each player got a limited edition DOTA 2 card which they had fun exchanging with one another for the characters they like in the goodie bag. On top of that they got a Tele Trip T-shirt, a cute portable speaker and notebook from Informatics and a Predator cap.

Reflections

The chatter on our ride back from KL to Singapore was a lot more than the ride to KL. All the ten players got to know each other more and there seems to be endless topics and chats they can engage with each other. Through this, we know that the objective of making new friends is definitely achieved. We heard some of them continued playing with each other after the trip!

We were very proud of the players for their attitude and responses. We had problems with the server and some players had their gameplays being interupted several times, an issue which Pantheon had no control over. As frustrating as it can be, all of them did not lose their cool and was patient in working around the issues. The players were also patient to wait for each other so that they can play together. Not simply because this made things easier (of course we are absolutely thankful), but it demonstrated the players’ admirable character, values and priorities beyond gaming. All you trippers deserve a big pat on your back!

We kept the schedule rather loose for this trip as we were uncertain how the players will respond to a more structured and intense schedule. Based on the feedback, almost all is open to a more structured format. We took in the various feedback and will work them in for the next Tele Trip. Below is the FB Photo Album of the trip.

The Game Addiction Talk

The Game Addiction Talk

The Game Addiction Talk

No one sets out to be addicted when he/she first plays a game. Unknowingly over time, a bond is formed with the game which makes it hard for the gamer to pull away.

At the 72nd World Health Assembly, 194 members of the WHO unanimously agreed to adopt the 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11), which includes ‘gaming disorder’ as a recognised disease. The new classifications will come into effect on 1 January 2022. Below is WHO video on Gaming Disorder.

SOOS OIO Game Addiction Talk seeks to help youths, and even adults, understand some basic game design psychology that answers the question “WHY games can be addictive?” Some patients in the hospitals are given huge dosage of heroin for treatment but they never become drug addicts. Similarly, the game itself is not the only reason for addiction. Through understanding the “why”, the youths are better equipped to make wiser choices in games.

Through the story of Ruth Lim, our in-house “game addict”, we seek to help students to be more aware of their pre-disposition to game addiction. Ruth’s personal struggles and victories brings life to the information about game design & pre-disposition to addiction, making it more real and relatable to your students.

The objective of this talk is to help students understand their power of choice. They can be in control of games and their life when they understand games and themselves better.

Ruth + Dota2 + FIFA18

About the Speaker – Ruth Lim

Ruth Lim is a coach for DOTA 2 & FIFA 18, and the lead trainer for DOTA 2 at the Esports Academy. Her passion for gaming led her to obtain a Game Development Diploma in Game & Entertainment Technology and further obtained a Bachelors in Computer Science while sustaining a keen interest in gaming.

Game was a way of life for Ruth. She spent extensive long hours in a game, determined to reach the goals she set for herself. This determination has impact and effects on her life. Addicted to game but yet not an addict is a thin line of balance.
