A real-world deployment of Syntropy technology, powered by DatHost, to be accessed by hundreds of independent gamers playing on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
GIBRALTAR — June 1, 2021 — Syntropy announces the first-of-its-kind virtual gaming competition for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) on June 5th and 6th. The tournament is made possible through a partnership with DatHost, a major CS:GO hosting company with over 250,000 users. The goal of the tournament is to put Syntropy’s Windows Application and other underlying pieces of technology to the test while seamlessly connecting hundreds of players through secure VPN connections in real-world gaming applications.
DatHost is providing Syntropy with dedicated gaming servers where they have already deployed Syntropy Agent software, allowing gamers to connect to tournament matches through the Syntropy Windows application and Discord integration. A global audience will be able to tune it live to the tournament and watch the competition unfold.
“We thought the best way to test our new technology in real time was to put it in practice by welcoming our target users, the gaming community, to test it out for themselves in a fun, creative way,” says Augustas Radziukas, Growth Lead at Syntropy. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with DatHost and influencers to make this weekend possible for our gaming community”
The gamer community may see some familiar names during the tournament as well-known gamers will be able to join different teams and play among the hundreds of other gamers.
In order to facilitate healthy competition, Syntropy is going to select teams based on the average rank of the players. Syntropy has slots for 32 teams with 5 players each who must reside in Europe. The tournament will also be broadcasted live with virtual attendees tuning in from around the world. Teams will split the prize pool of $25,000 paid in NOIA tokens which can be applied when deploying Syntropy’s technology.

Syntropy transforms the public internet into a secure and user-centric internet, where encryption and optimized performance are built-in and automatically enabled for anything and everything connected to it. Syntropy is developed and managed by world-class network architects and software engineers, guided by a professional executive team, and supported by more than a dozen close partners, advisors, and activist investors.
Security – With Syntropy, players connect through secure and encrypted VPN connections, adding an extra layer of protection to their gameplay. Tournament organizers are given the tools needed to design secure networks, where each connection is a unique and isolated event that occurs only when a player is connected. This protects servers from DDOS attacks and unauthorized access. Syntropy brings this enhanced security to all. With user-friendly tools, any server owner can create secure networks without extensive networking knowledge.
Performance – Syntropy connects gamers and servers through optimized connections, unlocking substantially reduced ping times in most cases*. By analyzing thousands of alternative paths, Syntopy automatically chooses the highest-performing route and overrides the default Internet path. If one route becomes congested, Syntropy autonomously redirects traffic, ensuring a consistent and fast experience across all players within a game.
