It's not much of a secret as they've already competed in tournaments under the Yoodo x Alliance tag, but today the telco and esports organization (who had a different team last year) made it official. During a quick press conference in the afternoon, Yoodo Alliance mentioned that they were officially teaming up with 4Rivals for the upcoming PUBG Mobile Professional League Season.

Yoodo Alliance-4Rivals will consist of:

The players, who have been together since their Dingoz MPX days, have been playing pretty well over the past year, so it's no surprise they caught the attention of one of the scene's biggest organizations. All smiles were to be had during the official announcement today, with representatives of Yoodo, Alliance and 4Rivals looking forward to a bright future. Things can only get better from here, right?

We asked Loda, Alliance's CEO about his thoughts about replacing the previous roster with the new one and he responded along the lines of, "It was a tough decision but we felt like we made the right one."

“The team’s performance thus far has been incredibly exciting to watch, and we’re confident that the combined boost of support from Yoodo and Alliance will help the team flourish at greater heights,” Chow Tuck Mun, Head of Yoodo, mentioned. “We hope to have your support as Yoodo Alliance-4Rivals continue on their journey to dominate the esports arena.”

Mohd Hafizuddin bin Yusoff, CEO of 4Rivals also shared, “We are thrilled at the opportunity to partner with such established organisations such as Alliance and Yoodo. We hope that with their support, 4Rivals can reach even greater heights and take the PUBG Mobile scene in Malaysia by storm.”

Yoodo Alliance-4Rivals will be competing in the next season of PMPL later this month where they will go against the best teams from Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. Stay tuned to eGG Network for more news and updates on the competitive PUBG Mobile scene!

Aspiring PUBG Mobile players have had plenty of opportunities to put their skills to the test all year round, but their biggest challenge yet is about to begin. Yoodo announced today, along with its newly minted partnership with Mission Foods, that the PUBG Mobile Campus Championship (PMCC) 2021 will be kicking off next week - first, the competitors have to be decided.

Over a thousand college and university students have signed up for the qualifiers which started last week, to try their luck at getting a spot in the league. Borneo and East Malaysia qualifiers have already been completed, while North, South and Central Malaysia will be played out in the coming days. On 13-14 November, all the qualified teams will be taking part in the PMCC League stage to qualify for the Grand Finals on 20-21 November.

There will be an RM60,000 prize pool to split, and an automatic wild card entry into the PUBG Mobile National Championship 2022 to fight for - among other things like Yoodo credits and exclusive merchandise. The grand finals will be streamed live on the Yoodo Esports Facebook Page, so stay tuned for that. At the moment, it wasn't mentioned what the Yoodo-Mission Foods collaboration will bring, but the latter have put up a teaser on their Facebook Page. I'd say we can expect some tortilla-related tie-ins coming to PUBG Mobile.

Yoodo sekali lagi bekerjasama dengan PUBG Mobile menganjurkan PMCC edisi 2021 dengan hadiah keseluruhan RM60,000 untuk dimenangi.

Yang lebih menarik adalah juara turut mendapatkan slot wildcard untuk penyertaan automatik ke PUBG Mobile National Championship (PMNC) 2022.

Chow Tuck Mun, Ketua Yoodo berkata pemain akan bertarung dalam pertempuran maya yang penuh aksi untuk merebut hadiah wang terkumpul dan ini memberi peluang kepada pelajar yang menyertai dapat merasakan perlawanan secara kompetitif dengan pasukan dari campus lain.

Pelajar akan bertarung dalam di medan pertempuran melalui sesi kelayakan yang akan berlangsung di antara 30 Oktober sehingga 14 November 2021.

“Kami berbesar hati dapat melancarkan PMCC 2021 bersama PUBG MOBILE dan rakan-rakan rasmi untuk menyokong bakat muda tempatan,” katanya.

PMCC tahun ini juga menyaksikan Caster Search Yoodo yang diperkenalkan buat pertama kalinya pada 2020 kembali pada tahun ini.

Inisiatif ini memberi peluang kepada para pengulas yang bercita-cita tinggi untuk mempamerkan kemahiran mereka dan memulakan karier masing-masing dalam bidang e-sukan, dan dalam masa yang sama turut menyokong matlamat utama Yoodo untuk memupuk bakat rakyat Malaysia.

Yoodo turut menyokong bakat tempatan dengan pencarian duta kampus PMCC 2021.

"Pelajar-pelajar berbakat yang memenuhi ciri-ciri sebagai ikon PMCC 2021 boleh menghantar penyertaan melalui video pengenalan untuk disenaraikan,"katanya.

Pendaftaran untuk PMCC 2021 kini dibuka. Para pelajar boleh mendaftar disini.

Sementara itu, Chow Tuck Mun berkata pihaknya sebagai penyokong serius industri e-sukan di Malaysia, Yoodo sentiasa mencari peluang untuk membangunkan industri tempatan bersama pasukan-pasukan dan kejohanan-kejohanan di luar sana.

"Kami mengumumkan penerusan kerjasama bersama Moonton dan kerjasama baharu bersama RSG MY untuk membangunkan dua pasukaN, Yoodo RSG MLBB dan Yoodo RSG COD.

"Sesiapa yang mengikuti perkembangan e-sukan tempatan dalam tempoh beberapa tahun lepas semestinya mengetahui bahawa kami sangat aktif dalam industri ini,
" katanya.

Menurutnya, masa depan e-sukan di Malaysia kelihatan cerah. Pandemik ini tidak menjadi halangan untuk aktiviti-aktiviti e-sukan kerana kita dapat melihat pasukan baharu ditubuh dan lebih banyak syarikat dan pertubuhan yang melabur dalam kejohanan-kejohanan e-sukan.

"Yoodo percaya komuniti e-sukan bukan sahaja perlu disokong melalui wang ringgit. Walaupun kita menghadapi pelbagai cabaran pada tahun lepas, e-sukan masih berkembang maju dan Yoodo akan terus membangunkan dan menyokong komuniti e-sukan di Malaysia," katanya.

Seperti yang Chow Tuck Mun sebelum ini, Yoodo memberi fokus terhadap mencari dan menggilap bakat-bakat tempatan dalam semua segmen termasuk e-sukan.

Prestasi Pasukan Yoodo RSG MLBB

Menurutnya, pemain menunjukkan prestasi yang baik dan sentiasa komited pada setiap kojohanan yang mereka tempuhi.

"Apa yang saya boleh katakan mereka bermain dengan baik walaupun ada peminat sedikit hampa dengan pemain namun ia bukan satu petanda pasukan ini tidak bagus.

"Sebagai peminat kita perlu menyokong setiap pasukan yang bertanding dan menang kalah itu adat permainan," katanya.

Isu Gangguan Seksual Dalam e-Sukan

Menurutnya, isu ini sangat sensitif dan perkara ini tidak seharusnya berlaku dalam kalangan pemain mahupun peminat.

"Kehadiran Yoodo dalam industri ini untuk membantu memupuk persekitaran esports yang selamat dan gangguan yang berlaku terhadap pemain ini tidak sewajarnya berlaku,
"katanya.

Yoodo bakal lancar 5G awal tahun depan

Yoodo sememangnya sudah dikenali sebagai syarikat telekomunikasi utama bagi e-sukan. Dengan 5G, kami dapat memberikan pengalaman permainan serta tontonan yang lebih baik kepada pelanggan kami yang meminati eSukan.

"Penawaran e-sukan kami juga selari dengan tawaran produk sedia ada. Salah satu ciri-ciri unik yang ditawarkan Yoodo adalah 'Add-On' yang merangkumi pelbagai kategori aplikasi seperti media sosial, hiburan dan sudah semestinya e-sukan.

"Pemain e-sukan boleh membeli tambahan 20 gigabait (GB) untuk permainan tertentu pada harga yang sangat rendah, bahkan secara percuma," katanya.

It was only last week that Yoodo announced they had parted ways with Gank, and now it looks like they've got a new team to take their place. In surprising news this morning, the telco announced its newly minted partnership with one of the biggest names in the esports scene - Alliance. For those unfamiliar, the Swedish-originated organization started back in 2013 with a Dota 2 team that won the International that very same year. Since then, they've expanded into many other games including a Singaporean-based Wild Rift squad, so it only seems natural they would want another team for one of the most popular games in the region - PUBG Mobile.

Introducing, Yoodo Alliance! Kimz, Lex, Dinx, Pami and Temah, aka GRiTG ARES, winners of the PUBG Mobile National Championship Malaysia 2021. The boys proved they have what it takes to hang with the best when they won the tournament and will make their debut on the big stage when PMPL MY/SG S4 kicks off on 24th August.

"It's important to pick a team where they have a core we can work with. They're willing to grow and have incredibly skilled cores. We love to work with teams that we can add value to and GRiTG ARES are that team," said Jonathan "Loda" Berg, CEO of Alliance, when asked about why the squad was chosen. Chow Tuck Mun, Head of Yoodo chimed in, saying that they had huge success with PMNC winners in the past (see ex-Yoodo Gank) and are looking to repeat it.

Look forward to catching the team in action later this month. Stay tuned to eGG Network for more news and updates on PUBG Mobile esports!

After a celebratory announcement of their third year anniversary this week, we didn't expect to write up this news today. Yoodo announced that their partnership with Wulf Esports has come to an end and they will be parting ways with the PUBG Mobile boys aka the Gank squad. To commemorate the occasion, they released a thank you video celebrating the team's achievements.

The team shot to fame after winning the PUBG Mobile Malaysia National Championship 2018 and Selangor Cybergames 2019, and looked unstoppable after winning the PUBG Mobile Pro League - Spring Split 2020: Southeast Asia but since then they've been struggling to achieve the same heights. There's no telling where the boys will go from here, but we hope to see them stick around the competitive scene. All the best to Draxx, ManParang, Bravo, Putra and Dep!

As for Yoodo, perhaps they'll be sponsoring RSG MY's PUBG Mobile squad instead? After all, they already have an existing relationship. Stay tuned to eGG Network for more news and updates on the PUBG Mobile esports scene.

To celebrate the telco's 3rd anniversary, Yoodo held a virtual press conference this afternoon to share the company's milestones and successes. Over the past 3 years, the company has seen quite a bit of success, especially in the niche they've developed for themselves as Malaysia's only (and perhaps in the world) fully customisable mobile prepaid plan. Based on their track record, and their core business being relatively unaffected by the ongoing pandemic, it looks like they're here to stay.

Chow Tuck Mun, Head of Yoodo, recapped the evolution of the telco from 2018 until now. Introducing convenient payment methods, their unlimited plans, and 20GB plans. He also shared about the telco's involvement in the local esports team - from sponsoring PMNC 2018, and the tournament's eventual winners, Yoodo Gank!, PMNC 2019, the Campus Championships, COD: Mobile Championship 2020, MPL MY/SG Season 5, working together with RSG, and more.

"30-40% of our customers use gaming add-ons. We consider it a success because our customers who buy gaming add-ons are likely to spend more than someone who doesn't. PUBG Mobile is the most popular add-on because it is free. People normally don't exceed the monthly 20 gigs for games," said Yoodo's head during the press conference.

While Tuck Mun teased that the Yoodo app will be receiving a significant update later this year, he didn't reveal much more than that. However, they did share some new promos that Yoodo customers can take advantage of:
