Like a real-life video game, imagine a first person shooting game brought to life. For the audience in Ahoy there will be stands to watch the gameplay from above!
What is SpeedQB?
SpeedQB is a new, competitive high-speed airsoft game type. A competitive 5-vs-5 team shooting sport focusing on creativity, efficiency and team chemistry. In a SpeedQB tournament during each match a total of ten players (in two teams) compete against each other in a relatively small arena. The arena is a closed area of 18 x 35 meters, filled with obstacles to be used to your advantage.
The game is similar to capture the flag, in which players rush to obtain a centrally-located flag and hang the flag in the opposing team’s spawn point. It’s life action equivalent to esports, the ultimate entertainment for the digital generation. With 3 rounds, each of 4 minutes maximum. The winner is the team that won most rounds of a match.
During DreamHack Rotterdam, there will be several demonstrations. Also, as a special DreamHack scoop: you can try out SpeedQB yourself in between matches. There will be a limited number of people that can participate, so people who are interested have to be sure to sign up for this at the NABV area on time. A free visit to the European Championship SpeedQB Airsoft is included in the DreamHack Rotterdam ticket.
