Garena Cyber Games 2015 Debuts Successfully in Malaysia

The venue was already packed when I arrived. Over 49, 000 excited and happy faces filled up the area for Garena Cyber Games 2015 at Comic Fiesta held in MIECC (Mines International Exhibition and Convention Centre) last December 19-20, 2015.

I was honestly impressed with the whole set-up, it felt like I am witnessing an international tournament unfold before me. The stage looked so high-tech and world-class. And one thing that I appreciated the most was that GCG was so organized!

Malaysia’s eSports scene has grown at an unprecedented rate in the last few years, and Garena Cyber Games is a key driver of this growth. This is our first joint eSports championship in Malaysia and we look forward to providing the gaming community with a world-class viewing experience across all genres. – Zhou Junjie, CEO of Garena Singapre and Malaysia.

There also was a redemption booth for goodie bags that Garena graciously prepared for the attending gamers plus a mini shop of Garena products for the fans who want to purchase League of Legends memorabilia.

The Garena Cyber Games 2015 had three tournaments lined of for that day: League of Legends (LoL), EA Sports FIFA Online 3 and Alliance of Valiant Arms (AVA). Here are the list of winners:
