HeroFest Recap – 3rd October 2020
HeroFest 2020 has finally started!
Going down in an unusual form this year, HeroFest went live on Twitch and for the first time brought the content pieces right into the living rooms of the visitors.
A few guests, however, have been received personally. These were the lucky ones, being able to experience the event at first hand.
A lot was going on, already on the first day. Our hosts, Sorah & Dom, gave a strong performance and opened the show with a successful opening ceremony. Right at the beginning we could listen to the beautiful sounds of "2 Breaths & Co". The duo gave the HeroFest the right vibe when they enchanted us with melodies andsongs from well-known games.
The highlight of the evening clearly were the Swisscom Gaming Cup feat. Fortnite. The last teams of the Cup played for the title of the best Fortnite trio in this Grand Final. In the end, the trio consisting of the players "Phazes", "zaaqz" and "Noahreyli" prevailed against all others. They were not yet allowed to take home the appealing trophy today, as they did not play on location - but they earned it and after sending it home they can proudly display it.
The evening was rounded off with smaller items on the programme, including a hardware review of ASUS as well as an interview with MYI Entertainment's Head of Strategy, Luca Hartmann, who gave us insights in the history of SwitzerLAN. It is the biggest LAN party in the DACH room and, by the way, takes place in the same building and on the same weekends as HeroFest.
In summary, a successful start! Now further days follow packed with the best that Switzerland has to offer in gaming, esports and cosplay.
See you today and don't forget to tune in!
