focusing on competition
The Nova Series is back with a bang for a second time this year, and boy, is it gonna be big. For the fifth time, we’re giving gamers living in Malta the chance to meet, greet, compete, beat and.. leet?
Held from the 2nd to the 4th August at the InterContinental Arena Conference Centre in St. Julian’s, the Nova Series promises 3 days of epic esports entertainment, gaming fun, and an all-new opportunity to make history.
WORLD ELECTRONIC SPORTS GAMES?
Winners of 5 of our 12 tournaments are getting a once-in-a-lifetime chance to compete in the WESG, a massive global esports event. WESG gave out a total of over $2.5 million in prize money during this year’s finals. Having a shot at that sounds like every gamer’s dream, and it is. We hope you’re training hard!
What’s more, it won’t cost you a SINGLE CENT to compete. That’s right, entrance to our WESG tournaments is completely free, and we also provide all the equipment – gaming PCs, consoles, you name it. There’s no catch – we just want as many people to take part as possible!
Our WESG tournaments are the following:
- CS:GO (PC)
- DOTA 2 (PC)
- Tekken 7 (PS4)
- PES19 (PS4)
- Hearthstone (PC)
The winners of each individual tournament will be representing Malta in the WESG EU Qualifiers 2019 with the chance to join in for the Finals at Chongqing, China.
EVEN MORE GAMING TOURNAMENTS
In parallel with our WESG special, we’ve also got the usual fun and games you’ve come to expect from the Nova Series. We’ll be holding the following gaming tournaments, that are not covered by the WESG, but still pretty hot:
- Rocket League (PC)

- Battalion 1944
- FIFA 19 (PS4)
- Magic: The Gathering Arena

Regardless of the respective tournament, the Nova Series #5 will be offering guaranteed prize pools which will be worth the fierce competition required to earn it.
If you’re not interested in tournaments, the we’re putting on some great side activities open to everyone. These include Virtual Reality, an enchanting physical card game Magic: The Gathering that you just have to try out, free-to-play PS4s & PCs during tournament breaks, Nintendo systems and board games. Do note that these will be free-to-play outside the tournament set for the physical card game.
