“ZARTNIR” Monitoring Progress Report of April 2011

At the beginning of April 2011 GCCI has installed a server computer. The main aim is to create a virtual platform where Computer Centers’ owners and clients from different communities can connect to each other and to GCCI in different fields of interest. In this case the first project with Computer Centers is creating a game server for “Counter-Strike” video game (the most popular game in Computer Centers). Each team attempts to complete their mission objective and/or eliminate the opposing team. The key advantage lies in the fact that the gamers from different communities get a chance to play against each other. Moreover, as the game is open source based software, players from communities where Computer Centers are operating, actively participate in the process of developing new "maps" (game environment), and security issues. Also by players initiative will be organized tournaments with prize fund. It is the first example of "Armenian" game platform, which provide opportunities to gamers create and develop game communities. On Facebook social network has been created group called "ZARTNIR Game Zone", where players can communicate with each other, suggest new ideas and find solutions in this filed. It is planned in future develop gamers community and based on this develop educational environment where Computer Centers’ owners and clients will have opportunity to share knowledge, skills and other resources.
