Latest updates from ESWC Finals, France

8 07 2010

Warrior and Chong Lit San – Go International Group’s Paris representative”] Team Malaysia has returned from Paris France and we’ve not received a call from them yet. Jet lagged, but we hear their spirits are intact! Despite returning home sans medals this year, the Organisers are pleased that the team had their chance to experience ESWC 2010 again, in what we believe to be a successful event. And that’s what ESWC is all about. A gathering of youth from over 32 countries, an exhange of culture and e-sports knowledge. A true journey for an e-sportsman (or woman) begins with these small steps, we believe. And we’ll keep on taking these steps until we reach our goal. Team Malaysia with loads more medals from international tournaments. Including an international tournament in our very own home ground with our own Go International E-sports Cup.
