Qualcomm, the company that makes chipsets for a large number of Android smartphones, is sinking its teeth into the realm of esports in India. The chip maker announced the Qualcomm Snapdragon Conquest Tournament, giving a grand prize of Rs 50,00,000 (50 lakh) to a string of winners who will qualify for various rounds. This tournament is for the battle royale game Garena Free Fire as Qualcomm seeks to empower the esports industry in India ahead of the planned launch of PUBG Mobile India.
Qualcomm Snapdragon Conquest Tournament dates are not available right now, but registrations are open if you’re interested. The best part is that these registrations are free – unlike other tournaments, this one won’t require you to pay anything to register. But there are some eligibility criteria you will need to meet. The most important among them is that you must be well versed with the game, Garena Free Fire. Free Fire is similar to how PUBG Mobile works, which is re-entering India in a new form.
There will be several events taking place throughout the tournament throughout the year. The Snapdragon Conquest Tournament will be fought between teams of four members each, moving on to subsequent rounds when they win against the opposing team. These matches will be streamed live, according to Qualcomm, along with players who will have their own individual streams where they can talk about a variety of topics, including their game strategy and gameplay.
Qualcomm hasn’t said anything about the level of difficulty these players will face. But going as previous tournaments have been, the difficulty level will increase with each stage, making it difficult for teams to win. Ultimately, only a few teams will make it to the penultimate and final round which will give the winners a prize of up to Rs 50 lakh from Qualcomm.
The chipmaker did not reveal the tournament dates, but it should happen soon. Additionally, Qualcomm’s entry into the India esports industry offers more opportunities for India players. The first tournament is in partnership with Garena Free Fire, but Qualcomm is likely to bring more titles to its eSports tournament in the future. These could include the upcoming PUBG Mobile India that PUBG Corporation is launching in India with a number of censored elements, such as fully clothed avatars.
Commenting on the launch of eSports tournaments, Rajen Vagadia, Vice President, Qualcomm India Private Limited and President, Qualcomm India, SAARC, said: “India is a mobile-first industry.
