The first edition of WirHouse LAN Party came to a successful and enthusiastic conclusion on June 30. Held in Taichung City, this three-day and two-night event invited hundreds of BOYC gamers and dozens of well-known streamers to experience an exclusive LAN party that lasted 54 hours straight! TOPMORE, Taiwan’s premier designer of high-end consumer electronics, was also there to showcase its state-of-the-art gaming accessories under its newest sub-brand TOPMORE Gaming.
WirHouse is an invitation-only gathering of a hundred or so selected streamers, professional gamers, and social influencers. The LAN party is structured as a BYOC (bring your own computer) and free-form event where attendees use their notebook and desktop gaming rigs to play games head-to-head or in teams of their own choosing. There are also tabletop game sessions where attendees can test their wits and skills. In addition, the event features live stage performances and an array of interesting and entertaining programs.
WirHouse is organized by 4Gamers Co. Ltd., a media organization that is dedicated to the reporting of the gaming culture and has been hosting major e-sports tournaments across Asia. Although WirHouse is in its first year, it is touted as the largest LAN party in central Taiwan and serves as a warm-up event to WirForce that is scheduled to be held in Taipei City at the end of the year. WirForce, which is also organized by 4Gamers, is among the top gaming and electronic entertainment events in the region.
This year’s WirHouse is the first gaming event that TOPMORE has participated in. As a proud event partner, TOPMORE came prepared to unveil a lineup of high-performance and stylish gaming peripherals that are must-haves for any LAN party. Event attendees were eager to try out the hardware that was on display at the TOPMORE booth. Major highlights included the Shuriken GK-100 keyboard and the DACA GM-100 mouse. These products will be offered under TOPMORE Gaming, a sub-brand that aims to capitalize on the opportunities in the emerging e-sports market.
The atmosphere of the event came to a climax on the second day when TOPMORE Gaming hosted a League of Legends tournament and provided its complete series of gaming peripherals for the competitors to demo. At the same time, the TOPMORE booth held a huge prize draw that saw many lucky winners walk away with fantastic loots. All in all, the people participating and watching the tournament had a blast as TOPMORE made special efforts to raise the excitement level to a fever pitch and enrich the prize pool.
