Malaysia Vengeance Cup 2013

AsiaSoft has come forward to support the Starcraft 2 scene, and are working with SC2SEA to promote some awesome eSports events.

We may have been slightly disappointed to find out South-East Asia no longer has its own WCS this year. Lucky for us, the kind folks at Blizzard & AsiaSoft have put together a small series of tournaments just the SEA region in the form of the Vengeance Cup. This should provide the chance of good competition along with decent prize pools!

For now, these countries will be  Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, with each of them having their own prize pools and national champions. The Malaysian Vengeance Cup alone already has a cash prize pool of 4,900RM!. The prizes are sponsored by Blizzard and organised by AsiaSoft Malaysia, while will be the official community partner. There is also a separate $1,000RM Star Jeweled tournament going on as the side event, so get your girlfriends down and score some sweet loot!

I might be joining this competition to gain more experiences and exposures on the current metagame of Starcraft II but also hopefully that Star Jeweled has online qualifier to put myself through into Kuala Lumpur for Grand Finals! Find me at Battle.Net Code : RollsRoyce.817 if you want casual games and competitive guidance for me as I'm just basically Silver league level in Malaysia and had more times on Dota 2 and other competitive arcade games for now.
