Trailblazers Take Center Stage at Malaysia Esports Awards 2023


Esports may still be a developing industry in Malaysia, but the Southeast Asian country boasts some of the best homegrown talents who have ever graced the world of the competitive video gaming.

For the past two decades, many Malaysian esports athletes have etched their names in the annals of history. From games such as Dota to Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, these superstars managed to emerge triumphant despite little to no support from either the public or private sectors in the past.

According to Esports Earnings, three Malaysians are among the top 100 esports athletes with the highest overall earnings in the world. Of course, tournament winnings alone is not the only yardstick for success; there are a variety of other avenues to make a name for yourself in the industry and put Malaysia on the map.

For instance, Malaysia won three gold medals at the Commonwealth Esports Championships in 2022. More recently, the country’s female Dota 2 team dominated the Global Esports Games in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, last year.

However, Malaysia’s success in esports is not solely determined by its players. From the coaching staff to the casters, as well as esports journalists, everyone has a vital role to play in transforming the country into an esports hub and powerhouse.
