After our massive turnout from our first event and reaching a peak of 70 viewers at one time, The Auspicious Gaming team is back at it again with another tournament to bring to the Oceanic community! Given the feedback from the previous event, the team are now much more organised and much better prepared to bring even more quality for both the teams and the viewers in the Auspicious Gaming April Open.
**About Auspicious Gaming**
We are a brand new tournament platform giving players a competitive environment in which they can thrive. With our local team we are pushing to broadcast casual couch-style commentary over our livestream with plenty of room for community interaction. We plan to do this through promoting community written questions, articles and hot discussion topics. We also plan on bringing aspiring shoutcasters on board and giving them a chance to cast live games.
Still not convinced? [Here are the highlights from our March event.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvIdZj9w-9A)
We hope to bring weekly tournaments as well as in-house events with prizes to be handed out at every opportunity. If this interests you, we strongly suggest you gather your friends, check out our website and get involved.
