Taylor’s University and Universiti Selangor (UNISEL) outplayed (#PUN intended) 32 other universities from across Malaysia to be crowned the first-ever Garena Student Alliance (GSA) Championship winners for League of Legends and EA Sports FIFA Online​ ​3​ ​(FO3)​ ​at​ ​Asia​ ​Pacific​ ​University​ ​(APU)’s​ ​new ​campus​ ​in​ ​Bukit​ ​Jalil.

The RM62,000 prize loot included partial scholarships worth RM6,000 for each member of the winning​ ​teams:​ ​five​ ​students​ ​from​ ​Taylor’s​ ​University​ ​and​ ​three​ ​students​ ​from​ ​UNISEL. Scholarships are important so including it as part of the prizes is a cleverly wicked idea!

As the host university and official venue partner, APU isn’t one to be outshined by other universities as they managed to secure 2nd runner up positions for both League of Legends and FO3 competitions. The Top 4 finishers included Multimedia University (MMU) Cyberjaya and INTI University & College (INTI) for League of Legends, as well as Universiti​ ​Teknikal​ ​Melaka​ ​(UTeM)​ ​and​ ​INTI​ ​Nilai​ ​for​ ​FO3.
