To all eSports fans, the Selangor Cyber Games 2016 is three weeks away, happening from September 9 to September 11. It will be held at One City Mall, Subang Jaya, and will see gamers from Southeast Asia as well as China competing for fame and fortune.
So what’s on schedule this time around? Eight tournaments, with a total prize pool of over RM350,000 (at the time of writing, since some of the cash prizes will be given in U.S. dollars). Here’s the list of the tournaments with their individual prize pools:
