Riyadh-: Electronic games enthusiasts, and especially e-football lovers in Saudi Arabia, are in for a unique interactive tournament, “Ms Dossary Game On”, which will take place in the Kingdom for the first time on August 25th and will include two qualifiers and a national final.
One controller, two players!
The tournament, named after international e-football gaming star Musaed Al Dossary (MsDossary) is styled as two-player team competitions. The idea of the game is based on the principle of two-way alternation within the team, which means that each player must transfer the role to his teammate at designated stations in every match.
As soon as the referee blows the start whistle, a player from each team begins the match, but they must hand over the controller to their teammate as soon as their team scores a goal, if the team receives a red card, and at every halftime; both players are entitled to one free switch during the entire match. And if the two halftimes end in a tie, the roles are also switched, and the golden goal formula is adopted. In the event that extra time doesn’t decide the outcome of the match, penalty kicks come into play, with the teammates alternating after each kick.
National qualifiers and final
The Red Bull Mobile Store will host the qualifiers in two stages in Khobar on the 25th and 26th of August, and in Riyadh on the 30th and 31st of August. The national final will be held at Riyadh Boulevard’s Muvi on September 3rd.
During the qualifiers, the teams will be randomly placed, according to an elimination system, to compete in matches. The winner of two matches out of three advances to the next stage. Thirty-two teams will compete in each qualifier, of which four teams will qualify for a total of eight competing in the national final.
Again, within the two-out-of-three format, the number of teams in the national final will be reduced from the best eight to the best four, and from there all the way to the final match, which will determine the national champion.
Today, Musaed Al-Dossary is renowned in the region and around the world for being one of the best e-football players.
In his first international competition, Al Dossary was a big surprise at the 2017 FIFA World Championship, where dominated and won it all, after he played the entire tournament without losing a single match.
Among his many accomplishments in the esports world, MsDossary took home the FIFA eWorld Cup Grand Final and the Esports Player of the Year award in 2018.
