    Hey everyone,

    Hope you’ve had a great week so far! We had an exciting time last week where we witnessed the community as they took on cricketers and gamers in 3 classic PUBG Mobile games at OnePlus Domin8. And we’re still not over their performance! Gamers in the OnePlus community, take a bow!

    For those of you who missed the action, here’s a quick recap of OnePlus Domin8.

    We started off the stream with our host, Abish Mathew and our casters for the day, Varun ‘Superjonny’ John and Ketan ‘K18’ Patel who introduced the teams, the rules and the games for the day.

    The teams were as follows:

    1. Team KLR with KL Rahul as captain and Scout, Jonny and Franky

    2. Team Shreyas with Shreyas Iyer as captain and Aurum, Ocean and Slayer

    3. Team Smriti with Smriti Mandhana as captain, joined by Ghatak, Clutchgod and Ash

    4. Team Yuzi with Yuzvendra Chahal as captain along with Angelina, Owais and Tanmay

    5. Team Dynamo with Dynamo as our only gamer captain with Ahsaas, Ronak and GodNixon. (We had a last-minute change where we had to switch Ronak with another gamer, Paritosh. Shoutout to #justiceforparitosh)

    After the short intro, we jumped to a captain’s only interview to check out expectations for OnePlus Domin8. Here we found out that each team was practising quite a bit, especially the cricketers so that they could prepare for the day and check out PUBG Mobile on their OnePlus 8 5G devices.

    We moved on to our games where we saw cricketers, gamers and the community in action. In between these games, we also held pre and post match interviews where we had the chance to speak to every team.

    We updated our leaderboard after each game and had a final chat with our winning team, Team Smriti before Abish concluded OnePlus Domin8.

    In case you missed it, have a look at the top 10 plays of OnePlus Domin8


    If you checked out our post last week, you would be aware of the game rules. If not, here’s a quick refresher:

    1. The teams would be awarded points at the end of the game, and the team at the top of the leaderboard would win OnePlus Domin8.

    2. HyperTasker of the game:
    The MVP (most valued player) of a PUBG Mobile game is a result of a combination of survival time, enemy damage, loot value, health points and teammates revived. This is quite literally a HyperTasker in the world of PUBG Mobile. The MVP of each game was honoured with the title of HyperTasker of the Game. This grants bragging rights and a brand new OnePlus 8 5G.

    3. Bounty hunting:
    We placed an in-game bounty on each cricketer. If any community member managed to take down a cricketer with a bounty, he/she would be rewarded with the OnePlus 8 5G.

    4. The OnePlus Domin8 Quiz:
    We also asked a question at the end of every game. And one lucky person from those who got the answers right would stand a chance to win the OnePlus 8 Pro.​

    Let’s see how this turned out:

    Match 1
    Winning team: Team Smriti with 15 kills

    HyperTasker of the game: TSMenClutchgod with 6 kills

    Match 1 Bounty for Yuzi Chahal: TSM | ETG Jonathan


    Match 2
    Winning team: Team Smriti with 18 Kills

    HyperTasker of the game: TSMenClutchgod with 10 kills

    Match 2 Bounty for KL Rahul: TSM | ETG Clutchgod


    Match 3
    Winning team: Team KLRahul with 12 Kills

    HyperTasker of the game: ScoutOp with 7 Kills

    Match 3 Bounty for Smriti Mandhana: Dynamo
    Match 3 Bounty for Shreyas Iyer: ÄŃ玄Ïṃäẍ


    Final scoreboard at the end of 3 games:
    Team Smriti - 12 points
    Team KLR - 12 points
    Team Dynamo - 11 points
    Team Chahal - 7 points
    Team Shreyas - 3 points​


    Team Smriti won on the basis of the most number of match wins (2 matches)

    The most interesting part for us was that we had a Red Cable Club member taking things a notch up in match 3. ÄŃ玄Ïṃäẍ - (real name: Rabindra Das), represented the community and emerged as a bounty winner.

    And finally, our OnePlus Domin8 Quiz winner! We got a bunch of users on Twitter who got all the questions right. Out of that set, we’ve randomly picked one person who wins the OnePlus 8 Pro. Congratulations Krushant Gandhi (@GandhiKrushant). Our customer support team will be reaching out soon with the next steps.

    With this, we close OnePlus Domin8. But when it comes to gaming, we're just getting started.

    We’re glad to have hosted an entertaining community experience with pro-cricketers from the Indian National team and some of the top gamers in India, especially in a time like this. We know this isn’t the usual post-launch experience but we hope to bring the community closer with more activities like this. We hope you had a good time and we thank you for all the love!

    Great Recap @Joel Jacob
    The event was wonderful and one of a kind.
    Seeing the sports persons and gamers on the same platform was wonderful.
    And the fact that it included community's participation was lit too.

    Thank you, looking forward to many more such fun events in the Future

    That's indeed a great event, however I would have appreciated it more if (more/every) the participants were from forums.

    We need more community driven India specific contests.

    Hey @Starcommander. Sorry if this wasn't clear but this was in fact a community event. All players apart from the 5 teams mentioned here were from the community. We also had OnePlus users among the gamers and cricketers mentioned above

    I know Joel. I am saying if all the participants were from forums or extended community like instagram or social media could have been icing on the cake.
    I know you guys had registration event too.
    I also know one of my forum friend playing. But since there were celebs involved, number of forum participations were obviously reduced.

    Having said so, this event was fun to watch. I loved it very much.
    However there could have been improvements like a pubg room ID wherein normal users could jump in First in first out basis.

    Also I am very much sure OnePlus has something very big for the community as always :)

    Thank you. Take care. Stay safe and keep rocking your guitar skills :cool:

    Thanks for the great recap @Joel Jacob. It was a truly entertaining night with great action from the cricketers and the gamers and also from our Community members. It was an interesting tournament with good commentary and pre and post match analysis from Abish and others and also a good time spent by everyone watching and getting entertainment from the matches. Thanks to the team behind Domin8 and all the involved people including the teams and especially Fnatic. It great to see OnePlus doing new and new stuff and its a great start in the gaming segment and we hope to see many such exciting stuff in the future. Kudos to the team
