Malaysia Open Qualifiers?
The unexpected entrants from RedSea Esport and veterans Stadium Fighter proved near unstoppable at the very end, upsetting several teams such as the likes of Gaventure, The Face Gaming and GANK.FTY, clutching the winning spot at the very end.
RedSea Esport acquires a collective point of 2270 with 36 kills and 1 WWCD on the third round, finishing within the Top 10 across all rounds, showcasing the consistency of the team.
Stadium Fighter, however, pulled a fairy tale like story with 2215 points and 58 kills at the end with only one top 3 spot and several top 10, clutching the second place with sheer deadly aim.
“Malaysian teams have shown a vast improvement within the PUBG esports scene with overall engagements and the kill commitments getting better, only proves we do have the talents within our local scene.”
Nik “The Hound” Harris continued to share his thoughts, “With the Malaysian qualifiers done and dusted, the question remains, how much more can RedSea improve and will they be able to match the experience and mechanics of other countries in the region. Highlighted teams such as BAE, TFG, GANK.FTY and Gaventure failed to make a splash with inconsistent placements and kill points.” Only with time and consistent practice will tell.

Ivan “Jinn” See, one of the casters have a few more things to add. “The Malaysian scene has grown so much since the last time we casted and this reflects on how big the PUBG scene can grow into and the potential it holds. With more and more teams up and coming, the PUBG scene is on its course to become one of the biggest things to happen in the esports industry.”
“We’ve seen so many underdog teams battling it out the past 2 days but RedSea eSports was the one team that really made us go WOW! Alongside with their 5th player – Ainii, which blew our minds, proved themselves worthy of representing Malaysia to the finals in Thailand.”
With the Malaysia Open Qualifier concluded, one can only hope as a spectator that the rest of the region, primarily the Singapore Open Qualifier will showcase the same level of competition on the coming September 22, 2018.
