Throughout last weekend, throngs of local gamers flooded the The Games Xpo (TGX) Malaysia which takes place at KL Convention Centre. The main attraction of the event is The Asia – a Dota 2 tournament that features 10 top teams from across the region as well as cash prizes worth RM 45,900 (USD 15,000). In addition to that, one of the event’s partners – NVIDIA – is also hosting a FIFA 13 tournament over at its booth.
All in honesty, the event didn’t offer anything else to visitors other than the two tournaments above despite having “Asia’s Most Comprehensive Game Expo” as a tagline (heh) but the hall was filled with spectators – not hard to guess that they were there to check out The Asia – on both days to the extent that some of the fans ended up sitting on the floor. Being a game that is not even officially out in the market, Dota 2 is really big in Malaysia.
