OC-ESPORTS overview

Organizing an overclocking competition has always been a tedious and time-consuming project. The HWBOT Competition Engine (“HCE”) is packed with all kinds of features to host incredible competitions. The competition engine is open to everyone, so now you can create your own contest and compete with your friends!

Why would you use HCE?

The HWBOT Competition Engine allows any individual or small organization to host their own overclocking competition. For example, HCE makes it very easy to run overclocking competitions at your local LAN party, overclocking gathering or event demonstration. Before, competitions were limited to the exclusive club of HWBOT partners and privileged overclockers. But things have changed and today anyone can run their own competition!

What type of competition can we host?

The HWBOT Competition Engine is very flexible. It can support several types of competitions. User vs. User, Teams vs. Teams, limited to specific countries or exclusive to specific users. The HCE also features options to either make your competition completely closed or fully open to the global audience of HWBOT.

The choice is up to you. You can customize your competitions as you please and design your perfect competition. Find out more inside ->
