Gamers, How About A Staycay That Pits You Against Team Flash Heroes?
If you’re a fellow gamer, you'll surely know the sian feeling of losing to an opponent who has completely outplayed and outclassed you. As if there was nothing you could do to prevent it.
That’s me whenever I play FIFA 22 online.
Sometimes, I blame the game for trying to sabo me, but I know the real reason – I’m just not as good as those pro players.
I’ve been watching YouTube videos and catching some livestreams to learn what to do and what not to do, but I’m definitely the sort of person who prefers someone to show me the ropes - things like the right time to shoot, what skills to use and the best time to use them etc.
Perhaps a “game-cation” at Orchard Hotel with the e-sports pros from Team Flash is just what I need to rank myself up and out of this rut.
Not sure if bae would be fine with me going on a weekend staycay with the boys instead of a getaway with her, but this is quite a novel idea by Orchard Hotel. Staycay + gaming all day? Sign me up, please!
There are four weekends to choose from, and each 3D2N E-sports Getaway ($400 for two guests) has the same e-sports clinic programme conducted by the pros (scroll down for deets):
- 26 to 28 Nov 2021
- 3 to 5 Dec 2021
- 10 to 12 Dec 2021
- 17 to 19 Dec 2021
Mini-break with the maestros
Team Flash’s top e-sports players will be giving coaching clinics throughout the weekend too.
While I definitely want to hear what FIFA World Champion Amraan "Bingbong" Gani has to say, I know my fam wants to reach Mythical Glory on "Mobile Legends: Bang Bang" – perhaps Ong Wei Sheng, one of MLBB's best coaches in the game “Aeon”, can show us the way.
There’s also a sim e-racing masterclass session by Arr Muhammad "Hamilton" Aleef, seven-time Asia Pacific champ and two-time World finalist.
A bonus if you opt for the 17-19 Dec staycay: “Wigglyspoo” Christopher Seah, coach of Team Flash's Brawl Stars roster, will be teaching you the skills to climb the leaderboard. Incidentally, Team Flash has qualified for the Brawl Stars World Finals in November this year with an unassailable lead over their closest rivals. Woo hoo!
Confirm will die (again and again) when playing against the best - but at least you'll learn a lot!
