Refreshments were served, during which the members of B. Suresh's' team indulged in their first ever gaming experience by playing a few rounds CS Go on the high end PCs of Clan Gaming.

The feedback and reviews shared by the gamers was a testimony to the effort put in by the Clan Gaming team to provide a truly world class Esports experience to gamers.
The event included a fun match which was a Pro Match showdown, between the CS Go pros and the founders of Clan Gaming.
