The intensive two-day online tournament was also a donation platform to help battle the COVID-19 situation in Malaysia.
As frontliners battle the COVID-19 pandemic, the ordinary Malaysian folks stay home to hinder the spread of the virus whilst maintaining their sanity. Fortunately, our #stayathome initiative was recently rewarded with the thrill of the Selangor Cyber Games Stay-at-Home Cup 2020, with Team Bosskurr and N.E.D Brotherhood bagging the win in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and PUBG Mobile.
The MLBB leg of the two-day online tournament concluded first, as Team Bosskurr won 2-1 in a final rematch against Geek Fam, having previously lost 0-2 to the Geeks in the upper bracket finals. But, they were given a second chance to reclaim their glory by getting lowered to the lower bracket finals against Todak. This time, they were more determined than ever for a retaliation, and dominated the match 2-0 before being granted a second round against Geek Fam. The comeback is real for Team Bosskurr, returning home with RM8,000 in prize money.
The PUBG Mobile leg may have ended later, but the action remains explosive until the end. Despite not having the highest kills in the game (runner-up Resurgence MY took the cake home for this), N.E.D Brotherhood managed to clutch two Winner Winner Chicken Dinners (WWCDs) and a still impressive number of 49 kills. It’s no wonder that they won the motherlode of the prize pool, which is also RM8,000.
The Selangor Cyber Games Stay-at-Home Cup 2020 was held in an online format from 8 – 9 Apr, featuring a mix of amateur competitive players – who progressed from the Online Qualifiers – and the invited teams of the MPL MY/SG Season 5 and PMPL MY/SG 2020, alongside a whopping RM40,000 prize pool to be won. A RM10 minimum registration fee was imposed to be donated to a COVID-19 charity fund, along with viewers of the tournament donating Facebook Stars on-stream to be added into the cash bag.
