Gaming Competition

Frag Fest Gaming Competition 2008 is the annual gaming competition that is held as a part of the NASCON event, for the revival of gaming in Pakistan. With special thanks to Cyber Shot Network Gaming, Adiyalia Road Rawalpindi for their endless and ultimate support in conducting the event. The purpose of the competition is to provide gamers within the institutes of Pakistan a fun, healthy platform wherein they can compete in their respective games, and try to earn a cash prize while they’re at it.  The event attracts gamers from all over Pakistan, all competing neck to neck for the title of top gamers. It is also hoped that this event will further the name of gaming as a whole; gaming has already become a valid profession in many parts of the world, and it is our hope that it will evolve to this, both from the points of the gamers themselves, as well as Pakistani society as a whole.
