So I was casually doing nothing and I thought I should start writing on this cos me buddy asked me. Even if she didn’t i’d have written it.. lol

Anyways so what’s with gamers and girls? What do you mean by that? First let me give you a small definition about a gamer. A gamer can be a female or a male. I bet you thought that I was referring to guys? :P.

So what’s the difference between a gamer and a girl? well a gamer to another gamer is not different. We are all one, in this virtual world where we all meet and slaughter each other where there are no boundaries. We are all one, we got the same equipment, clothes, we die the same way, we spawn for new rounds the same way. To emphasize this more clearly there is no different when a female plays CS and a guy playing CS.

So what’s the hype about a female gamer? abroad there are many female gamers. They have clans and stuff. It’s a whole new world. So why am I writing this post? well it’s to just say we need to come out of our shells and show what girls are made of in Sri Lanka. Yea baby, that’s right. Sri Lankan female gamers are no where to be seen. I mainly think it’s the culture we have. The way we are brought up.

Remember guys evolve with whatever comes, our resistance to change is far less than a female. Let me get a good example. We all have parents/guardians, yea? So just look at them for a moment. Your mom would be screaming the head off “Why are you playing games?” “it’s a waste of time”, “When we were small your dad didn’t play games”, “Look @ your cousin when they were your age they never played games (this was cos games were rare when they were small)”. Now take your dad for example. You dad will come “Hey what’s this?”, “Some new game?”, “Ok kill that last boss and come for dinner, ok?”. (personal experience)

So how come this happened? well from my PoV i think it’s cos how we are accepted in our society. If there was a female who played games and her friends got to know she’d be the laughing stock in her gang. Women think guys playing games are very childish. I think not.

So this is why we @ Lanka e-Sports (www.esports.lk) are organizing the WCG Colombo event and giving registration fee free to promote female games to get them out and show there friends that they are proud gamers.

To all the female gamers in Sri Lanka “We are but one, there is no shame of losing or any such. We are all equal” so even though you win or lose in the end what matters is if you enjoyed it. So call your gaming friends and set a team and get registered here (http://forum.esports.lk/index.php?topic=24.0).That’s all for now folks will keep you posted on any other event we do.

take care gamers.
