Battle of the fittest DotA team…
Defense of the Ancients © Blizzard (DotA) gamers meet in Melaka for grand showdown!
For the first time, SMM Grand National DotA Tournament (SGNDT) organiser, Sendi Mutiara Multimedia Sdn. Bhd. collaborated with ESWC 2008 Malaysia organiser, Go International Group Sdn. Bhd. to bring together two major events: the 8th ESWC DotA Qualifier and the 1st SGNDT Qualifier at Melaka’s Infinity Cybercafe, Bukit Beruang on 21 June 2008.
Over 24 teams signed up for the challenge (must be because of the fantastic cash prizes offered by SMM!!! Good on ya, SMM!) Team New Cybertime-Gov beat Team MY 1 to emerge as the champion of the Melaka Qualifier; whilst Teams BKT and Re’ qualified as 2nd Runner-up and 3rd Runner-up respectively.
SMM gave away these amazing prizes at Melaka alone! Wow, gamers, rest assured, although this year ESWC 2008 Malaysia is not offering such grand prizes, we surely will work our way towards increasing the prize pool for next year, okies.
So the four teams went home with:
1st: SGNDT – RM2000 Cash + Medal + Qualified For Grand Final
2nd: SGNDT – RM1000 Cash + Medal + Qualified For Grand Final
3rd: SGNDT – RM600 Cash + Medal + Qualified For Grand Final
4th: SGNDT – RM300 Cash + Medal + Qualified For Grand Final
Plus, they are now in the running for a slice of the SMM Grand National DotA Tournament 2008 top prize of RM36,000 cash if they win!
New Cybertime-Gov and MY 1 are now in the running (auto-berth) to compete at the ESWC 2008 Malaysia National Finals on 5 and 6 July 2008 at 1 Utama Shopping Centre. Winners will challenge on 5 & 6 July with the winners announced on 6th July.
Come find out who will win the all-expenses paid trip including airfare and five-star accommodation in San Jose, USA and represent Malaysia at the ESWC Grand FInals from 25-27 August 2008.
