Comp strife denied
Graphics powerhouse ATi has denied there were niggles with its Clan Masters PC Gaming event this August, after Windows received reports of questionable organisation, ill-performing PCs and player favouritism. However, the manager of one of the event’s venues, Q Club's Amer Elayoubi, has admitted that some gamers were charged both a registration fee as well as an hourly PC usage fee.
Team A-List and team Tafjeer jointly conquered the Connect3D-sponsored event, which took place in Dubai on August 24 and 25, with more than 40 teams battling it out in total.
Attendees of Clan Masters reported several problems to Windows, ranging from technical PC problems, favourtisim towards teams of
Arabic players, plus players at one venue being charged an hourly fee in addition to the event’s AED25 entrance fee. ATi’s regional boss, Rauf Baig, responded to the favouritism claim, stating: “This is not the case. No special treatment would have been given. A-List have won international gaming events.”
