With the three-player team competition, Selangor Cyber Games will become the (self-proclaimed) biggest platform for individual EA SPORTS™ FIFA ONLINE 3 players with a whopping participation of 256 players.
In conjunction with the recent launch of FIFA Online 3 Ultimate Legends (Diego Maradona, Thierry Henry and Ronaldo Nazario), the FIFA Online 3 Game Operations team from Garena will be giving away Ultimate Legends as part of the lucky draw prizes. Furthermore, players that come wearing their favourite footie jerseys will also stand a chance to win FIFA Online 3 merchandise and Logitech F310 game pads.
According to Garena eSports associate, Raimi Sharin, the prime objective is to encourage players to achieve their highest potential and blow their own trumpets as Malaysia’s undisputed individual champion for EA SPORTS™ FIFA ONLINE 3.
“There is much to consider when playing as a team as each player has different strengths and weaknesses. However, we want our players to experience fighting your own battles and we hope to give individual recognition to these players as well. The Selangor Cyber Games: FO3 Championship crown will be the Ballon d’Or of eSports where one champion will be recognized for his own efforts and passion.” he added.
