It looks like Galaxy Racer will be making waves in our country soon. At the Expo 2020 Dubai, the global esports organization signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) witnessed by Communications and Multimedia Malaysia (KKMM) and the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) announcing a projected investment of RM42 million (10 million USD) in Malaysia within the next five years.
In addition to the economical investment, Galaxy Racer plans to organize more esports events and tournaments to facilitate and boost the country's esports ecosystem. They also intend to boost the involvement of females in esports in Malaysia, after seeing the success of their female-centric esports events in Dubai and Pakistan.
Furthermore, Galaxy Racer will launch its Asia Pacific headquarters in Malaysia later this year and looks to position Malaysia as its digital hub in the region. The headquarter will focus on various verticals - content, esports teams, content creators, esports, gaming events, merchandising, a music label, and an upcoming world-class visual effects animation studio. This will in turn create job opportunities for Malaysians looking to work with an international esports, gaming and lifestyle organization.
“As part of our mission to drive the digital economy with high-impact initiatives, MDEC is committed in growing the esports industry in Malaysia and together with industry leaders such as Galaxy Racer, I am sure we will be able to elevate the industry to greater heights. Their investment into Malaysia will contribute greatly into the esports industry,” said the CEO of MDEC, Mahadhir Aziz.
Founder and Group CEO of Galaxy Racer, Paul Roy, said: “Galaxy Racer believes in MDEC’s vision for Malaysia to become a high-value-added economy and a net exporter of home-grown technologies and digital solutions. We are excited to establish our APAC headquarters in Malaysia and we appreciate the support by MDEC and KKMM in facilitating foreign direct investments into Malaysia, with the MSC status application, ease of doing business and gaming-related industry grants. We look forward to creating a positive impact in the esports and digital economy and elevating the quality of the talent pool in Malaysia.”
The digital economy is becoming one of the biggest contributors to Malaysia’s gross domestic product (GDP), making up to 22.6% of the nation’s economy. It is expected to contribute as high as 25.5% by 2025, outperforming the traditional largest contributor to the nation’s GDP - oil and gas. Galaxy Racer believes that MDEC would also be the catalyst for the nation’s Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0).
The future of esports is certainly looking bright for Malaysia and we're pretty sure this won't be the last time we hear such good news. Stay tuned to eGG Network for all the latest news and updates on the local esports scene!
Last weekend saw one of the most devastating incidents of flooding in Malaysia, due to the non-stop rain on Friday and Saturday, numerous regions around the country were left uninhabitable causing thousands of people to evacuate their homes. People were left homeless, stranded, and stuck waiting for the water to recede.
Recognizing the severity of the natural disaster, a group of Facebook Gaming Creators who were from teams like Homebois, 4Rivals, Team Caracal put aside all rivalries to work together for a good cause. There was no competition here, only one common goal to help out those in need.
Here are some of the things they did: Daddy Hood helped drive some flood victims from Johor Baru to Kuala Lumpur, the Homebois gave out essentials such as T-shirts, hoodies, power banks, animal food, blankets and mattresses. Those who couldn’t be there physically donated funds to relief projects that were set up to aid the affected.
2021 has not been a good year for a lot of people, with the whole pandemic going on and now these catastrophic floods - who knows what’s going to happen before the next year comes around? For those of you who have the means to do so, do consider lending a helping hand, but regardless of the situation, remember to stay safe, stay healthy and stay well.

Jika anda seorang pengemar adegan permainan PUBG Mobile, pasti anda menyaksikan PUBG Malaysia National Championship (PMNC 2021) yang baru saja melabuhkan tirai dan empat pasukan sudah melayakkan diri ke PMPL MY / SG Musim 4 atau anda hanya suka bermain 'pertempuran royale' Tencent seperti kami, anda juga mungkin termimpi ingin menjadikan hobi anda menjadi realiti sebagai pemain PUBG Mobile profesional tempatan mahupun antarabangsa. Nah, kami mempunyai berita baik untuk anda – Ia adalah 100% boleh terjadi.
"Ia sebenarnya sama seperti menjadi profesional dalam sukan sedia ada dan ianya secara kebetulan dari hobi beralih kepada karier," kata Muhammad Aiman Mohamed Halim (Slydd) merupakan jurulatih team Anti Circle, salah satu daripada 16 pasukan jemputan PMPL MY/SG Musim 3.
Bekas profesional PUBG PC itu, menasihatkan kepada sesiapa bercita-cita ingin menjadi pemain pro antara salah satu cara terbaik adalah bermain PUBG Mobile's Classic Mode sebanyak mungkin.
Menurutnya, nisbah K/D (bunuh/kematian) anda kelihatan luar biasa. Ini akan membuka mata pencari bakat dan seumpamanya yang memberi tumpuan kepada statistik pemain seseorang dan mengecilkan pemilihan pemain yang berpotensi.
"Jadi jika anda mempunyai nisbah K/D yang baik, anda pastinya akan menjadi perhatian 'mata-mata' pencari bakat dan mereka akan lebih bersedia untuk mencuba anda untuk pasukan mereka," kata Slydd.
Slydd berkata, jika mereka sudah bermain sepasukan, mengapa tidak membentuk pasukan ragtag anda sendiri? Ini akan membolehkan anda bersaing dalam pertandingan yang lebih kecil sebelum dapat mengambil bahagian dalam pertandingan peringkat lebih tinggi.
"Jika anda berjaya masuk ke kejohanan utama, di situlah semua pencarian bakat berlaku.
"Malah pasukan besar mempunyai rombakan jadual, jadi mereka akan mencari bakat atau pemain baharu dalam kejohanan ini untuk merekrut mereka." jelas Slydd.
Selain daripada apa yang dikongsi oleh bekas ahli SEAGM Wolf, anda juga boleh memuat naik kandungan permainan PUBG Mobile anda.
Sama ada melalui penstriman atau rakaman video di platform media sosial dan jika bertuah anda akan disedari.
"Ini sebenarnya bagaimana Secret Jin's Rex (bekas ahli Rahsia Pasukan) mendapat tiketnya ke tempat kejadian profesional, selepas Uhigh Team Secret terjumpa muat naik permainannya di Instagram dan kagum dengan permainannya.,"katanya.
Walau bagaimanapun, individu berkenaan perlu memikir panjang dan perlu bersedia untuk meneruskan karier dalam e-sukan PUBG Mobile Malaysia, jurulatih Slydd berkata perjalanan untuk kearah itu tidak tidak semudah dijangkakan dan pelbagai onak duri perlu ditempuh.
"Anda boleh mencuba untuk pergi kearah itu, tetapi sekurang-kurangnya bersedia dan sekiranya terjadi sesuatu anda masih boleh meneruskan kehidupan.
"Sama ada mempunyai pekerjaan dengan pendapatan yang kukuh atau mendapatkan diploma atau ijazah terlebih dahulu sebelum mencubanya,
supaya jika anda jatuh anda tidak jatuh terduduk, dan anda mempunyai sesuatu untuk bangkit kembali. Seseorang tidak boleh terlalu berhati-hati dalam pilihanya.
Nantikan wawancara penuh kami dengan pasukan Anti Circle, yang akan bertanding dalam PUBG Mobile Professional League Spring Split 2021.

It's a day of twists and turns for PUBG Mobile esports Malaysia; well, just two, but still enough to feel certain emotions. Hours after Sean “InSomnus” Tee Yau Terng was announced to leave Team Whales today, the scouter pulled a switcharoo as EVOS ViP revealed that he has joined the white tigers as their latest member, in the best way possible - a wacky video!
"We were looking for a high firepower, frontline player, and InSomnus ticked all of the boxes we had," said team manager Andrew "AurOra" Chen, adding that he's also an experienced player with decent performance in the last PUBG Mobile Professional League Malaysia/Singapore (PMPL MY/SG Season 3). "He has an ability to gather the players together in-game, that’s his contribution to the team’s dynamic. Also, he’s a real try-hard (a compliment actually)."
Admittedly, the Facebook Gaming Creator (yes, InSomnus streams too) initially wasn't at the top of the list, but he was already friends of the EVOS ViP squad prior to joining (LUXXY98 played PC games with him and his former teammates) - he even contacted them directly to try out for the vacant spot. "From the first match he played with us, I was impressed that he bonded so well with the team," AurOra exclaimed. "It felt like he was already with us for a long time, which makes him different from the other candidates."
An extra member in any esports team would undoubtedly leave some players out of the battlefield, so why did they bring InSomnus on board as a sixth member? "We want to introduce healthy competition among themselves," said the team manager, joking with his analyst (to be revealed!) that they should pit them against each other in Team Deathmatch mode, with the top 4 performers playing in the day's matches (of course not). At the end of the day, "everyone here is a good player. Any player combination has its perks, and it's a major headache wondering how to dispatch."
That's one headache that's bittersweet, though definitely on the sweeter side. EVOS ViP's firepower has proven to be much more explosive last season, placing in the top 5 of PMPL MY/SG Season 3, and with InSomnus on board, there's definitely more gunpowder in the team now to go kaboom (in a good way).
"Right now, we are working our way up with our training schedule and regime, perfecting our gameplay step by step, day by day," said AurOra. "I have the utmost confidence in our team for the upcoming PMPL MY/SG Season 4. #EVOSROAR!"
Wonder how an aggressive PUBG Mobile team make their rotations? InSomnus shared his insights on how his previous squad Team Whales did just that during PMPL MY/SG Season 3.
