By Hardwarezone – In case you missed it, Singapore Comic-Con (SGCC) 2019 opened its doors to comic book fans and geeks of all ages last weekend at the Sands Expo and Convention Center. Think of it as a reimagined version of the old Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC), one that’s been working out and pumping iron at a metaphorical gym.
It’s the gospel truth – we found that SGCC 2019 had way more to offer than it’s predecessors, in terms of both the quality and the quantity of available content.
For starters, SGCC naturally has the usual lineup of tabletop gaming, cosplay competitions and independent artists you’d expect from a geek convention. Gamersaurus Rex, Championships of Cosplay and the Artist Alley were all familiar, returning faces, although we did have some new “upstarts” too, in the form of Singapore Pro Wrestling (SPW) and PVP Esports at Singapore Comic-Con. The latter played an especially big part in diversifying what the convention had to offer since it not only opened up the option for in-house esports tournaments and events but also showcases of the latest games.
Here are some of the visual and noteworthy highlights from the convention.
There’s no way around it – esports is growing exponentially, and the presence of Singtel’s PVP Esports initiative at SGCC 2019 only further confirms it. Over the two days, teams from both the Corporate and Campus League battled it out in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and Dota 2 for the top spots and of course, the glory of victory.
On that note, here are the champions for each title!
