Day 1 starts January 14! What are the results?
The eQ League is a league, and Day 1 was held on January 14.
The three game titles were "OVERCOOKED!2," "Super Bomberman R," and "Taiko Drum Master: Session de Dodong ga Dodong! ".
What is OVERCOOKED!2?
OVERCOOKED!2 is a game in which you play the role of a chef and cook food for customers.
If you fail to cook a dish, points will be deducted from your score, so you must complete and serve as many dishes as possible before a complaint comes in.
The competition is played in teams of two against two, with the higher score after the time elapses being the winner.
What is Super Bomberman R?
Bomberman is an action game in which players place bombs and use the explosions to defeat their enemies.
The eQ League was played in Grand Prix mode, where two teams of 3 vs. 3 played against each other, with the rule that the winner was the one who picked up the most crystals on the stage or in the opponent's possession.
If your character is knocked down, you lose half of the crystals you have collected, so you must protect your crystals to avoid being knocked down.
Since the tournament is played online, the lag became so severe during the tournament that it was impossible to progress several times.
What is Taiko Drum Master?
Taiko Drum Master is a well-known arcade game in which players beat taiko drums to music.
In the eQ League, two players play one-on-one in "Shindachi Mode," and the team with the higher total score wins.
The difficulty level of the game can be decided by the players themselves, but as of Day 1, the score does not increase proportionally even if the difficulty level is increased and a full combo is obtained, so the rules may be revised in the future.
