Haseeb Tariq, a participant in the tournament and student stated, “I had a great experience with eSports Club at QU. They are doing a wonderful job at unifying the gaming community at QU under one club and giving chances to them to actively participate in gaming events. The initiative by eSports Club to collect donations for Education Above All is a great step too which I was quite happy to participate in.”

Ahmadyar Qureshi, Student at QU and The eSports Club Vice President, said, “We had an amazing time holding the event in collaboration with the Sanabel Club. It was great to finally see the QU eSports Club hosting an event after such a long time, especially after the prolonged COVID restrictions.”
