 MYCL HostMYCL Host Search Finalists

Ladies and Gentlemen, a few weeks back, we received more than 50 applications for the MYCL Host Search event.  Applicants were from all over Malaysia and we also had some international students applying for the role.

With all that in mind, the task was then to filter through all the videos we received where applicants then introduced themselves for 1 minute (many went over 3 minutes). We’re not complaining, it just goes to show that many in the LoL community really wanted to be a part of MYCL and also the eSports industry in Malaysia.

The Interview Process

After going through all the candidates, we then shortlisted it to a total of 7 candidates who showed the most promise and talent. These candidates were called in to the Garena Office at Gardens and there the interview process began.
The judges were from Garena, DuniaLoL and last but not least Astro eGG!
