The competition in for both days was explosive, be it for a great legendary game like Ragnarok or the other highlight games, such as Yulgang, Cabal, Rohan, AIKA, Atlantica, TwelveSky2, Granado Espada, and Ghost Online and the PlayFPS International Heroes competition featuring two shooter games - S4League and A.V.A.
