Last week, we announced the qualifiers for PUBG Mobile at the Hanoi SEA Games was going to take place over the weekend and after 3 days of competition, here are the results:
Well played to TABAH NSEA and Geek Fam for their awesome performance last weekend. TNSEA finished in first place with 167 points (1 WWCD) while Geek Fam finished at 156 (2 WWCD). Both of the teams will be representing Malaysia at the upcoming Hanoi SEA Games (taking place 13-22 May 2022).
“Congratulations to both TABAH NSEA and GEEK FAM on their extraordinary feat during the Malaysian Esports Selection 2022. They have shown superb gameplay and teamwork, and are deserving of the title ‘national athletes’. With the impressive skills they displayed last weekend, we are confident that both teams will make Malaysia proud at the Hanoi SEA Games 2021. I would also like to thank the other 14 teams for participating in the qualifiers. All teams have done remarkably well, which really shows that Malaysian PUBG MOBILE teams are top class,” said Oliver Ye, Director, PUBG MOBILE.
“Congratulations to both TABAH NSEA and GEEK FAM and we wish them the best of luck at the Hanoi SEA Games. I would also like to applaud the other 14 teams that demonstrated spectacular skills and teamwork during the qualifiers last weekend with 13 different teams getting Winner Winner Chicken Dinners across all 15 matches in three days. We are looking forward to watching the teams play again during the PUBG MOBILE Pro League MY/SG/PH,” said Kelvin Pang, National Esports Team Manager.
MESF also announced the teams that will be taking part in the other esports at the event: Todak (MLBB), SEM9 (Wild Rift and League of Legends), ADT Esports (Arena of Valor), Sorry Roar and Secret Xpert (Free Fire). Orange Esports has been shortlisted for FIFA Online 4. It looks like we're all set to go against the other nations this May. We look forward to seeing how our local squads will fare this year. Malaysia Boleh!
It looks like they're starting the team selection process for esports at the upcoming Hanoi SEA Games. The prestigious multi-sport event which was supposed to take place last December will be held a couple of months from now. This weekend, we'll find out which team will be representing the Jalur Gemilang in Vietnam this May.
Here are the 16 teams competing:
The teams will be playing 5 matches daily, from 4-6 March (3 PM onwards), for one of two slots at the event.
The Hanoi SEA Games 2021 will take place from 12-23 May 2022 this year, and will feature athletes from Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Timor-Leste and of course, Vietnam. With Malaysia being one of the top PUBG Mobile regions in the world (we had two teams in PMGC 2021 after all!), expectations are high on the lads taking the gold for this title.
The Malaysia PUBG MOBILE qualifiers for Hanoi SEA Games 2021 will be live-streamed on Malaysia Esports Federation’s (MESF) Facebook as well as PUBG MOBILE’s Facebook and Youtube platforms. Tune in at 3PM onwards from 4th to 6th March 2022 to join in the excitement and cheer for your favourite teams.
E-racing fans who have been waiting for the esport to be part of a prestigious tournament will be glad to know that their prayers have been answered. The Vietnam Recreational E-sport Association (VIRESA) announced today that E-racing will be part of the upcoming Southeast Asian eSports Championship (SEA EC) 2021! Thanks to the efforts of Alex Yoong, former Formula One driver and founder of eRacing GP; the International Union of E-Motorsport, and Z-Challenger; RaceRoom will be joining PUBG Mobile, Wild Rift and Valorant as a medal event at the championship.
SEA EC 2021, a precursor to the 31st SEA Games which will be held in Hanoi, Vietnam in 2022, will be the testing ground for participants looking to compete in the latter event. What better way to get practice than against international opponents and with money on the line? Winners will get a cut of the 10,000 USD prize pool.
To compete in SEA EC 2021 RaceRoom, all you have to do is top the eRacing GP rankings (and obviously be from one of the eligible nations). The rankings will open on 24 December until 2 January and will be free to enter. The top two competitors from each country will qualify to compete in the final on 9 January, including both individual and team events. They will be racing in the Z-Challenger Audi RS3 in their national colours over three rounds on the day of the competition. Finalists will also be invited to compete in Challenger Cup, another racing simulation tournament to be held later in 2022.
Vietnam, Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia have confirmed their participation with more countries expected to sign up in the coming week. Think you have what it takes to compete? Download RaceRoom now and start practising! Follow SEA EC on Facebook and YouTube to stay updated.
