The rise of women in esports is worthy of a celebration, with more female professional players making their way to the upper echelons of the scene. That's why it comes as no surprise that esports organisation, Geek Fam, has formed their very own all-girls Malaysian team, Geek Fam Girls PUBG Mobile.
Here are the wonder ladies that make up Geek Fam Girls PUBG Mobile:
Anis "Anees" Safiyah - IGL/Scouter
Wan Nor "Mimel" Emylia - Fragger
Nur Fifi "Eevee" Natasha - Rusher
Fatin "1CAA" Amisa - Sniper/Support
Aisya "Rysyaa" Syahiera - Support
Amirul Rashide bin Mat – Manager
If the roster looked familiar to you, it's because Geek Fam took in the former members of Waisu Hera, who disbanded in September. "We were impressed by every competition Hera were in and the achievements they made," revealed manager Amirul. "Thus, we felt that Hera was the best team to carry the 'Geek Fam Girls' name."
And who else would be more over the moon regarding Geek Fam Girls' confirmation, than the girls themselves? "We feel happy with the great opportunity we've been given to play under Geek Fam, not to mention that we'd also be the first all-girls team for them," expressed captain Anees, on behalf of the girls.
It so happened that Hera's contract with Waisu Esports expired by the time they finished competing in the PMPL Ladies SEA Finals (PUBG Mobile Professional League), so the timing couldn't be better for the girls. "We want to continue giving our best by joining Geek Fam," Anees continued.
Hera used to be under Orange Esports late last year - Anees is the only original member left - before undergoing a roster change and converting to Waisu Hera in June, The newly-signed squad ended up qualifying for the PUBG Mobile National Championship (PMNC 2020), where they first gained recognition after placing top 3 on the first day of the Playoffs, surprising everyone by scoring one Winner Winner Chicken Dinner in the final phase. Even though they ended their PMNC 2020 run by placing eighth, their performance in the PMPL Ladies SEA Finals was nothing short of brilliant, reaching the top 3 with one Chicken Dinner as well.
We look forward to seeing how Geek Fam Girls PUBG Mobile will fare in the next season, and wish them the very best in their esports endeavours.
The PUBG Mobile Professional League Malaysia/Singapore (PMPL MY/SG) Season 2 saw plenty of returning teams who improved drastically, as well as fresh-faced players who've shown promise to go further in the scene. One team in particular, Marlino, caught the eyes of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang professional player, Mohd Fariz “Soloz” Zakaria, which led him to take them in and form the Anti Circle team.
The announcement was posted last night on the official Anti Circle Instagram page, revealing that Soloz will also be managing the PUBG Mobile team. According to WTM Today, the Facebook Gaming Creator decided to sponsor the players due to the great potential and talent they displayed in the PMPL MY/SG Season 2 Grand Finals. "Each player will be given a fixed salary every month, facilities and other related aspects that will be improved over time," he added.
The Anti Circle members qualified for PMPL MY/SG Season 2 by placing fourth in the PUBG Mobile Malaysia National Championship (PMNC) 2020 last July, back when they were in Marlino. They later advanced to the Grand Finals of the professional league and settled at ninth place by the end of the finals, with 124 points and one Winner Winner Chicken Dinner.
These are the players of Anti Circle:
It was an exciting weekend of esports tournaments, with one of them being the PUBG Mobile Malaysia National Championship 2020 (PMNC) playoffs. After almost a month of qualifiers and matches, the tournament has finally come to an end, with LX Esport finishing in first place. The squad, which qualified from the Miramar Zone, played extremely well throughout the tournament, and dominated this weekend with 216 points, thanks to their 4 Chicken Dinners.
Congratulations to Tidur, Asta, Youtube and Minn - watch out for these players in the future. In addition to RM30,000 for first place, they secure an all-important slot to the upcoming PMPL-Fall MYSG League. The first to fourth runner ups, TRX Elementus, Team Bosskurr, Marlino inSouth, and AKA Rogue, will also be joining them in the fray.
Fun fact: 4 out of the top 5 teams at PMNC came from qualifiers, with the only invitee being Team Bosskurr. Fresh faces are always a welcome sight, but will they be able to go far in PMPL-Fall MYSG later this year? Only time will tell.
