The Invasion Begins with AMD!
AMD Sponsored the Invasion – AMD Gaming League Tournament
In December, we covered an AMD-sponsored competition that saw a great number of DOTA 2 and Battlefield 4 players at the Invasion Cybercafe in Kepong. These guys had all turned up to participate in the AMD Gaming League competition, hosted by both AMD and the Invasion Cybercafe.
Many of the players who turned up were mainly DOTA 2 players, all of which were present to compete against each other for the chance to win cash prizes worth up to RM5,000. In total, as many as 40 teams competed head to head in DOTA 2, with each team consisting of five members. That’s over 200 competitors that attended the game, not including the spectators and casual observers who were present either.
Additionally, there was a separate section in the area dedicated to Battlefield 4 (BF4) competitors. The number of competitors in this game were not as many, but it was quite refreshing to see that there was still a strong community of Battlefield players still around. Some of the teams present were the Malaysian Battlefield Team (MBT), who has been around since the early days of the Battlefield franchise. One of the more impressive teams was a group called MAG. This group had no official backing or sponsorship, but these guys gave the competition a tough fight.
On a side note, AMD also had a little section at the front of the shop to display a custom PC made by goldfries, and housed mainly AMD components, such as AMD’s latest FX processor and an AMD Radeon R9 280X.
Team MAG flew no colors, but they sure put up a fight.
DOTA 2 spectators could see matches happening in this corner.
