PAX Australia is still just a few days away, but it’s already clear what one of the highlights is going to be, especially for esports fans: The Dell Alienware booth is going to be centerpiece of the expo.
The stage will feature several interactive events, challenges, and Q&As and panels featuring esports stars and personalities, including Team Liquid’s Drew “Midbeast” Timbs and several professional players from Avent Gaming, Order Esports, and the Detroit Renegades.
The events kickoff on Friday, Oct. 26 with Game Like a Champion with Alienware Command Center. The segment will feature Alienware’s brand manager Marc Jones and product marketing coordinator Eduardo Goyanes, who will talk with Midbeast about esports, technology, and a few other subjects. Midbeast is a popular League of Legends streamer for Liquid. He’ll also be hosting a Q&A, where he’ll talk about the latest Alienware products.
If your mouse finger gets itchy, you might want to head to the booth any day from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. AEDT. from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. There, James “jimNeso” Cowan and Jake “Hysterics” Osypenko will host five-v-five CS:GO showcase matches featuring Order and Renegades. JimNeso is an Australian esports commentator best known for his work on CS:GO pro events and Hysterics is a caster and host for League of Legends and Rocket League. They’ll both return to host the Shoutcaster 101: The Voices of Gaming panel, where they’ll talk about their work and give attendees some insight into the life of an esports commentator.
That’s not all though: The pair will also host a two-v-two Rocket League tournament that will pit two sets parents and kids against each other in what should be one of the most entertaining events at PAX.
Alienware will also play host to a panel that will surely be interesting to aspirational esports fans. The commercial director for Gfinity Esports Australia, Ben Williams will host a panel on what it takes to be a professional gamer in the esports scene. The panel called, “Turning passion into profession: How to establish a career in esports,” will run on TK date at TK time and feature guests like president and general manager of Alienware, Frank Azor and social and community manager of Gfinity Esports Australia, Stacia Grooby.
Alienware’s big esports presence at Pax is nothing new for the brand. Dell and Alienware have been involved in esports for more than a decade, providing hardware, sponsorships, and—most recently—ways for amateurs to improve their skills. This is a chance to experience Alienware’s esports ambitions first-hand.
