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.
