G1-League qualifying latest
The latest game to take place in the qualifying for this event saw DK take on Chains Stack. It seemed vital that DK could get something from this game to keep any chances of qualifying for the main event alive. Both teams went into the event with a score of 0-2 in the group after losing to both Invictus Gaming and Zenith. DK managed to take the match 2-0 and dump Chains Stack out of the tournament. They have only a slim chance of progressing further now but it is certain that DK would have taken this result before the start of play today.

Malaysia Singapore HoN tournament on the horizon
A tournament has been announced with a prize pool of $25,000 to take place between the nations of Malaysia and Singapore.

After the success of Stay Green at the GSL tournament in Bangkok recently, it seems only appropriate that an event of this magnitude has made its way onto the Malaysian shores.
