Antarabangsa | April 9, 2017 | By abang dots



With less than a week to go till the big showdown, the Garena Premier League (GPL) in Philippines will host teams from all over the ASEAN region. Participating countries will be from Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia. Each team comes with the hope of victory as they enter the international stage.

The teams which will be participating are the Kuala Lumpur Hunters (Malaysia), GIGABYTE Marines (Vietnam), Ascension Gaming (Thailand), Fortius (Indonesia), Team Flash (Singapore) and Mineski (Philippines). All eyes are on GIGABYTE Marines as many believe they are the strongest team this split.


Head of Garena eSports Malaysia, Dickson Lee commented, “Though many have the assumption that GIGABYTE Marines are the strong favourite for GPL, I know for a fact that the Kuala Lumpur Hunters and their new roster are more than capable of beating them. It all depends on which team truly performs on the day itself.”


Though the Kuala Lumpur Hunters have never won the GPL, this year seems to be their best chance in taking the crown back home with superstar Eric “Qaspiel” Sia being in the best shape of his career so far. Recently he had achieved the rank of Challenger in the most competitive League of Legends server in the world which is the Korean server. Qaspiel had also been recently given the title of Most Valuable Player (MVP) due to his strong performance in The Legends Circuit (TLC) 2017.

Ameerah Idros, a community leader in League of Legends commented, “The Kuala Lumpur Hunters carry the hopes and dreams of the Malaysian League of Legends community on their shoulders. We all believe in them and hope they can bring the silverware home. It’s time the international community see the strength and potential of the Malaysian eSports scene.”
GPL group stages will begin on the 12-13 April followed by the playoff stages in the following days. Catch a our national team the Kuala Lumpur Hunters on as they do battle and hopefully be victorious.
