Hyperion X OEL CS:GO Launch Event postponed

by Juandi

Due to technical issues within the infrastructures, Oceanic Esports together with Hyperion Servers have announced that their inaugural CS:GO event, Hyperion X OEL CS:GO Launch Event has now been postponed to a yet unknown date.

Hyperion X OEL CS:GO Launch Event was originally scheduled to take place from January 13-17. Up until now, it remains unknown when the US$17,500 multi-continental tournament will return. The decision comes after it was reported that damages have been done to the Hyperion Server’s infrastructures, which makes the server cannot fulfill the expectation of connecting 12 Asian and Oceanic teams in an approximately 60ms latency server.

Although they have yet to set a new date, Oceanic Esports together with Hyperion Servers have addressed that they will “provide the new dates once the repairs to their facilities are complete”. The full statement can be found below:

“We have to postpone the Hyperion x OEL tournament. Some infrastructure has been damaged on our Hong Kong leg, affecting server latency to Asia. Repairs are being scheduled, but it’s looking like this won’t be for at least a month. We’re sorry for the delay, and we’ll work alongside @OceanicEsportGG to set new times once repairs are complete.

Providing a stable and competitive experience is our commitment to all teams that play in OEL tournaments with unexpected issues we have decided with Hyperion to postpone the event. We will continue to work with teams for a date to bring an event that will live up to the hype.”
