In the modern age of gaming, we are seeing an increasing importance being given to the Internet.
Whether it is online gaming, downloading digital games, or games that release downloadable content digitally, gaming is currently enjoying a love affair with being online.
This is quite different from the humble beginnings of the industry where each game came on physical storage (think: disks, cartridges, etc.) and if your country didn’t import the newest Final Fantasy game, you were flat out of luck.
The Maldives has also been integrating the Internet into many aspects of itself. One such area is gaming.
It has recently come to our attention that Ooredoo has some interesting deals to offer local gamers. These deals come in the form of addons for their Supernet packages.
Aptly dubbed, “Gamer Addons”, these products offer gamers more data allowance and higher speeds for a limited time. They are like timed booster packs you can buy to add on top of your existing package, hence the name.
In this article, we will go over the options and how or why they might be helpful to the local gamer.
With no further ado, let’s take a closer look at Ooredoo Maldives’ Supernet Gamer Addons.
Gamer Pack 50
The first option on offer is called the “Gamer Pack 50.” Let’s take a look at what it offers and see how it can be best utilized.
The name comes from the fact that this package offers an additional data allowance of 50 GB. Users also get a turbo boosted speed of 50 Mbps.
This package is timed to last for one day and costs MVR 50.
From our perspective, this package is perfect for medium to large downloads over a very short period of time.
To put it in a gaming perspective, this option is perfect for when a game releases patch updates.
Games like League of Legends, Valorant, etc. receive content and balance updates frequently. With this package, local gamers are able to download these updates ASAP and get back in the game.
So the next time Destiny 2 is about to release its next seasonal updates or weekly patches, the Gamer Pack 50 might be exactly what we need.
Gamer Pack 100
The second option on offer is called the “Gamer Pack 100”. Once again, let’s take a look at what it offers and what we can get out of it.
Much like its younger brother, this package is also named after the data allowance it provides. This package gives users a data allowance of 100 GB, along with a turbo boosted speed of 100 Mbps.
Unlike the previous one, this package will last users 3 days before becoming invalid. This package is priced at MVR 100.
From our perspective, this package is the perfect choice for large to extra large downloads and for high speed Internet use over a period of time.
Looking at applications in gaming, this package might be perfect for when a new game comes out and we need to download the entire thing to get started. Many games also receive day one patches these days and having some extra GBs to spare might save users a lot of heartache.
This package is also ideal for streaming, especially if one does it at specific days or times. (By the way, check us out on Emmen Plays on twitch.tv/emmengaming!)
We can also see this package being useful for individuals who might need a consistent and fast Internet connection for a short period of time. For instance, players in a local tournament.
So the next time a new game comes out, it’s time to stream a game for a long time, or we need a dedicated connection to play a tournament, this package might be just what we need.
And there you have it, readers. Our overview of Ooredoo Maldives’ Gamer Addons for Supernet.
It is very pleasing to see packages like this because it is a sign that gaming is starting to be taken more seriously locally.
We have come quite far from the days when the games we got to play were inherited from family or were scavenged from random shops.
We at Emmen Gaming hope that local gaming continues to develop, both on the gamer side and from the business side, for years to come.
