The eSports scene in Malaysia has been booming quite a bit lately. The topic as well has been one of the hottest and most debated topics of all time in the region. It is a huge market here though if you have not realised. The biggest eSports title of all time is, of course, Dota 2. It is a huge thing as proven by the ever so successful ESL One Minor in Genting this year. It is about to get bigger though.
Dota 2 is about to get bigger with PGL with the upcoming Kuala Lumpur (KL) Major tournament. It is set to be the biggest Dota 2 tournament to be held in Malaysia, which is a big deal. The KL Major is also Malaysia’s first ever Major status tournament for the Dota Pro Circuit for the 2018/19 season. The tournament will see 16 international top Dota 2 teams from all over the world including Evil Geniuses, OG, and Team Secret come out and battle to win their prize pool money of US$1,000,000.
