What is it? Electronic Sports World Cup, ESWC began in 2003. In a short span of 5 years, the organisers, GAMES SERVICES are the epitome of people who live the ‘indie’ spirit – doing what they love most without compromise.
The Organiser. Go International Group, the organiser and Malaysian license owner for ESWC 2008 and 2010 in Malaysia. Launched on 6 May 2008, ESWC Malaysia 2008 went on a road trip! Did you see us and our two cute mascots – New Beetles cars at 9 selected LAN shop locations around the country. The search culminated at 1 Utama Shopping Centre in Kuala Lumpur at the Indie Youth Festival from 4th to 6th July 2008 and once again at Bangsar Shopping Centre on 5 & 6 June 2010. As usual, the events would be packed with loads of activities, games, fun, concerts, short film competition, cartoonists, prizes and more await visitors! So help us spread the message to your friends!
The Quest. To seek for the best team of Malaysian Gamers to represent the country at the ESWC Grand Finals. It was in San Jose, USA from 24-27 August 2008; and then Paris Disneyland from 28-31 July 2010.
Why participate? The 2008 leg was interesting because it will be the first time ever that ESWC Grand Finals is held outside France. Plus, the 3-day event runs alongside NVIDIA’s NVISION 2008 visual computing festival. In addition, you’ll be amongst those participating in a Guinness Book of Record breaking attempt for the largest LAN PARTY IN THE WORLD! The current record is held by Dreamhack with 7,800 PCs hooked up! In 2010, it was of course held at Paris, Disneyland! Now who doesn’t want to go to Disneyland??!!
ESWC is one of the most exciting, entertaining and renowned e-sports event in the world! Watch out for its return next year!
