The successful launch of the Taiwan Excellence Esports Cup (TEEC) in April this year, the tournament culminated in a grand finale from Oct 11 to 13.
Throughout its journey, the Taiwan Excellence Esports Cup has conducted over 10 online and LAN qualifiers in the nation, overseeing 283 teams and 1,415 participants competing for highly sought-after qualification positions.
The three-day tournament witnessed the best of Malaysian eSports athletes compete in three main game categories for the games CS: GO, DotA 2 and League of Legends. Champions of each game title won RM10,000 each and the winning team for CS: GO received a golden invitation ticket to Taiwan for a friendly match with four other competing countries including, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines and India.
Since the start of the tournament, the Malaysian Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) has announced its endorsement as it recognises the window of opportunity that would bring out the best of Malaysian gamers through a healthy gaming platform.
The tournament had also received major backing from Taiwanese brands including Aorus, Aero, Coolermaster, InWin, MSI, Predator, Republic of Gamers (ROG), TeamGroup, Thermaltake, Transcend, XPG, ZADAK, Zowie. Their participation has provided many Malaysians with the opportunity to experience the highest level of eSports through this competition.
One of the products brought by Predator was the newly launched Predator Helios 700, which comes equipped with the “HyperDrift keyboard”, where an inner keyboard slides out of the normal keyboard, increasing airflow and automatically triggering the “overclock” function that increases performance by 20-30%.
As a whole, TEEC proved to be another step in the right direction for cultivating homegrown eSports talent, particularly with the side activities that encourages the audience to participate in sub-game titles like Tekken 7, Super Smash Bros and PES 2019.
