Written by Eksternal on 5 Oktober 2021
BSSC Squarelympic is an annual nationwide sports and e-sports event held by BINUS Square Student Committee (BSSC). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, BSSC Squarelympic 2021 “Run and Be Mystical” only organized e-sports competitions and was open to the public. It was held from 18th to 27th September 2021. BSSC Squarelympic 2021 consisted of 4 games, which are Valorant, Mobile Legends, PUBG Mobile, and DOTA 2; with a prize pool of IDR 12.000.000. The event itself consisted of not only the competitions, but also the Opening Ceremony as well as the Awarding Night.
For the Opening Ceremony of BSSC Squarelympic 2021, we invited Fahmi Maulana, who is mostly known as Kornet, the most wanted MPL (Mobile Legends Professional League) caster, as the guest star. There were opening speeches from the Chairman of BSSC and the Vice Project Manager of BSSC Squarelympic 2021, followed by a Game Talk session with Kornet. He shared his journey to becoming a famous MPL Caster. He also told some tips for Squarelympians on becoming a caster. After the exciting Game Talk, some Squarelympians were given the chance to play Mobile Legends together with Kornet.
After the Opening Ceremony, the Competition began. The qualifiers and the Semifinals of each game went on simultaneously from 19th September until 23rd September 2021. All of the matches were streamed online via GOX Indonesia. The Finals, however, were held separately for each game: Mobile Legends on 24th September 2021, Valorant on 25th September 2021, and the last two games which are PUBG Mobile and DOTA 2 on 26th September 2021. The Finals were also streamed live with casters hyping up the games. Some of the matches were very close with both teams, especially in the Finals.
On 27th September 2021, Awarding Night was held as the closing event for the BSSC Squarelympic 2021. The Awarding Night was spectacular as the hosts announced the Champions of the BSSC Squarelympic 2021, four teams in total along with four Runner-up teams. They’re all grateful for winning the competition and are looking forward to next year’s Squarelympic. There were also performances of the beautiful choir performance of PARAMABIRA BINUS and the amazing theatrical drama from STMANIS BINUS.
Overall, BSSC Squarelympic 2021 was held successfully. Even though it was held virtually, it did not stop the event from being fun and memorable.
