As the first summer month was coming to an end, there was a question in the air: wasn't it time to add some color and new experiences to our workdays? We wanted more emotions and interaction, along with exciting events. That's why we decided to organize championships for the most popular and beloved games.
On Friday, June 30, 2023, the first darts competition among MediaTen specialists took place.
Each participant had three attempts with 6 darts each at the standard distance to the target - 237 cm. The scoring rules were similar to the standard rules, with a small addition - minus 50 points for hitting the wall. A few times, luck wasn't on the wall's side, and it seems we might need a plasterer-painter now.
Over 15 participants managed to showcase their skills. Some made smooth hand movements, others executed intricate throws, and some made such swift releases that they had to hide behind the glass of the conference room. One of the developers hit a bullseye with precision, while another proved that they could shoot well with their left hand. Both made it into the top five:
1st place - Sergey N.,
2nd place - Vasily P.,
3rd place - Alexey S.,
4th place - Ivan V.,
5th place - Mikhail M.
Sergey scored the maximum number of points and took home the valuable prize. Vasily and Alexey were awarded with certificates for a digital and household appliance store, while Ivan and Mikhail received consolation prizes.
The developers got so caught up in the excitement and adrenaline that they didn't even notice how the game flew by. That's why our CEO gave the green light for an additional round, for which a separate trophy was awarded. The winner of this extra round was Dmitry M.
CONCLUSIONS AND PLANS
In addition to the surge of emotions during the championship, laughter from jokes and comments of the participants never subsided. We had snacks, had a blast, and simply had a great time. Next time, we will definitely invite colleagues from other IT companies to join us.
