Masters of computer sports took part in the regional cybersports tournament Open Cup of the Voronezh Region. 380 participants and 73 teams competed in three popular disciplines, DOTA 2, Counter-Strike 2, and FIFA, ready to fight for victory. VSU’s cybersports teams were among the prize winners of the competition: Rapacious Beavers took second place in Dota 2, and VSU eSports took silver in Counter-Strike 2. Also, two players from Rapacious Beavers, Egor Trufanov and Ilya Goglov, took part in the FIFA competition. They won 1st and 2nd places for their team respectively.

This is the second cybersports competition organised in 2023 by Department of Youth Policy of the region and the Regional Youth Centre. The first tournament was held in October 2023. The purpose of such competitions is to promote computer sports and support the cybersports community in the region. Over two days, the participants spent as much as 36 hours at their computers. The results of the tournament are:

  1. Counter-Strike 2: JustLan took first place, VSU eSports took second place, and VGTU eSports took third place.
  2. Dota 2: Team KABAN took first place, Rapacious Beavers took second place, and ready4w1n took third place.
  3. FIFA: Egor Trufanov took first place, Ilya Goglov took second place, and Roman Maslovsky took third place.

Ilya Goglov, silver medallist in the FIFA discipline, explained the secret of his consistently good results:

“I’ve been training a lot since 2017, because I didn’t want to lose to my friends. I took it seriously only two years ago, started participating in local tournaments, joined the cybersports division of the university sports club. Last season turned out very good: I took several first places at local tournaments, including last year’s Open Cup of the Voronezh Region, and second place at the regional stage of the Interactive Football Cup of the Football Union of Russia. Regional tournaments are uncommon for FIFA, there are usually two or three major competitions a year. It’s cool that the direction has been developing recently.”

“Despite its popularity, cybersport is still considered a relatively new phenomenon in many regions. It is a developing sport that encourages young people to take an active attitude towards life. Instead of just spending hours in front of a computer, young people can become part of a team, practice, and improve their skills. Cybersport develops strategic thinking, teamwork, time management, and concentration,” said Anton Krasov, the main organiser and acting director of the Youth Centre.

The tournament was held as part of the regional project “Development of Youth Support System” (“Youth of Russia”), which is part of the national project “Education”.
