While the Malaysians are obvious lagging behind, with new the new growth of eSports especially in Asia, we shall not be far behind for long. As the talents here grow, they can aspire to reach such heights as flusha or JW. As tournaments become more plentiful and with higher prize pools each year who is to say how the landscape will change. All players need to do is dream the impossible since it’s already here. Playing games has become to many a fulltime career. Many others become organizers and casters. So the amount of jobs attached to this new industry is ever growing.

There is no limits to what can be done when one tries. So keep at it and prove how strong Malaysia can be in the CS:GO world.

 

Till next time at RBEZ,
