Geek Fam has emerged victorious in the recently concluded Malaysian leg of Acer’s Asia Pacific Predator League 2018 in the Best of 5 Final with Fire Dragoon which lasted five hours. Comprising of two Filipinos, Skemberlu and Playhard, and three Malaysians Chyuan, Oli, and March, Geek Fam succeeded in winning the prize loot of RM25,000 from a pool of RM55,000. Additionally, these men also won some trumpet-blowing rights in representing Malaysia in the Asia Pacific Predator League 2018 Grand Final that will be held in January 2018 in Indonesia.
Interestingly, it was a sweet victory for the champions as said team was only formed six weeks ago, according to Lim Keat Kuang aka ‘Sheep’, owner of Geek Fam.
Fire Dragoon which comprises of BrayaNt, Ah Jit, KanGaroo, yaNG and Alacrity, was awarded with RM10,000 after coming up second behind Geek Fam.
About 180 teams participated in the tournament that had two Open Online Qualifying rounds – the first was between 4-5 November 2017, and the second qualifier was between 11-12 November 2017. Only four teams qualified to join four invited teams to battle their way to becoming the very first Malaysian Predator League champion. The Malaysian Grand Final teams were Geek Fam, Fire Dragoon, New Beginning, Objective Gaming, Team Flash, Team Highground, Team Thinker, and Estar.
The Malaysian Predator League champion will battle country champions from six other nations (Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines, Thailand India and Hong Kong) for a chance at grabbing the USD150,000 prize loot in the Grand Final that will be hosted by Acer Indonesia.
