Ready your PCs, aspiring pro gamers!
Deny all you want, Malaysians; professional gaming is now officially a viable career choice.
These past couple of years, the eSports industry has grown leaps and bounds. So much so, Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq recently vowed to turn Malaysia into an eSports powerhouse
And now, we actually have a varsity course for aspiring professional gamers.
One course we won’t be skipping!
Called the Alliance of Campus eSports (ACE)
, this programme aims to empower students and aspiring gamers via the power of eSports.
Launched by eGG Network with the support of the National Sports Council of Malaysia, ACE wants to help students become professional gamers by providing them with access and training so that they can get proper knowledge on how to become a professional athlete.
If you don’t feel like becoming a pro gamer, fret not; ACE will also help prepare you for a career in live streaming, team management and tournament organising.
If your dream job has anything to do with games, ACE will help you make it come true.
ACE also aims to provide students will a platform to display and hone their skills through on-ground events and – you guessed it! – eSports tournaments.
In the coming months, ACE will be organising a Mobile Legends: Bang Bang
and a Dota 2
tournament for university teams.
On top of the combined RM38,000 prize pool
, winners of the tournaments will also automatically secure a spot in the National eSports Selection later this year and stand a chance to represent the country in international eSports tournaments.
