2017 was the year when SiGMA Cup was established as THE football tournament of the gaming industry. 20 teams participated and an impressive crowd of colleagues and fans showed up to cheer, so it's pretty safe to assume that more than 200 people attended the exciting pre-SiGMA social. It was a sunny day at Luxol, packed with smiles and laughter and we all had a very enjoyable experience.
Gaming Innovation Group ended up winning the tournament after beating Twin in the final.
We were flattered when hearing what Endre Nesset from Gaming Innovation Group had to say after lifting the trophy:
"Whether it's a football tournament, a poker tournament or a party, when the people at All-in Translations are organising an event, you know for a fact that the event will be great".
"We were delighted to see so many friendly faces. Although competitive, the atmosphere was great. We will continue hosting the SiGMA Cup for many years to come. Furthermore, I'd like to say a very special thanks to the referees, the guys at Luxol Sports Complex and everyone that participated in our video shoot", said CEO of All-in Translations Roy Pedersen.
The video mentioned was a spoof of Football Coming Home from 1996. We ran the lyrics through multiple layers of Google Translate and used them for the soundtrack, with footage from the tournament in the background.
It is safe to say that when it comes to translations, humans still outsmart computers. And the end result is always superior when you translate or write about something you love. As you figured out by now, we at All-in Translations do indeed love gaming and sports.
So if you need anything localised or written on these subjects, for example with your World Cup content, just give us a holler!
PS: Thanks to Aleksey Leonov from SiGMA for the great photos as always.
