Mobile Gaming Is The Future eSport 

Esports has now taken over the world by storm with famous games such as DotA 2, League of Legends and Fifa, but it will grow even bigger in 2018 with the addition of mobile gaming into the eSports arena.

 

Rise of Mobile


Complex games are now played through smartphones, made possible by existing technology that supports complex mechanics in games.

In Malaysia, among the notable mobile eSports tournaments in 2017 was the Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup at Tropicana City Mall, Petaling Jaya with a prize pool of US$10,000 (RM40,000), Season 3 of Vainglory Malaysia League at Cyberjaya, and the Garena Arena of Valor tournament in Kuala Lumpur with a prize pool of RM70,000.

Game-based Education

Gaming-based education programmes have been established across Malaysia. Among them are the Riot Games student Ambassador Programme and the Garena student Alliance Programme where they nurture the growth of League of Legends communities in their campuses, with a healthy budget aimed at equipping the students with skills such as event management and public relations.

Johor has its own esports academy that offers two vocational certificates; Professional eSports Athlete and eSports Events Management. It will be taught by professionals and comes with a certificate for a future career path!

 

Big Money


Malaysia has accumulated a total of RM1.2 Million in revenue just from eSports!

Support from the commercial media, government and the community provides exponential growth of the industry for years to come.

 

Solidified Presence

Stakeholders like MDEC have been pushing for the growth of the local eSports industry to turn Malaysia into the regional games hub of Southeast Asia under the #MYGAMEON initiative.

In December last year, Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced that the National Sports Council will form a special unit to promote the eSports arena in Malaysia.

This will also help in changing the public’s perception of esports by practising healthy gaming habits that promote acceptance.

 

So what are you waiting for? GAME ON!
