Today marks a momentous day for Geek Fam, (our local esports team competing in games such as League of Legends and DotA 2) and Acer as they both shake hands and team up, venturing into the massive world of esports. Aside from gaining Acer as a sponsor, Geek Fam is also launching their very own gaming arena – the Geek Arena. It is located in Lot 10 at Jalan Bukit Bintang.
Geek Fam was founded in November 2016 by Lim Keat Kuang and Joseph Yeoh. “We hope to see our partnership with Predator being mutually beneficial, and together, accomplishing our individual goals by being each other’s support pillars. We are thrilled that Predator is onboard with Geek Fam!” said Keat. Geek Fam was recently crowned the champion of the Asia Pacific Predator League 2018 that ran for three months with a win over BOOM.ID on their home turf in Jakarta.
Acer, a household name when it comes to computer peripherals, monitors, and especially laptops had been honing their craft in creating gaming behemoths for esports professionals, amateurs and casual gamers alike. Aside from developing gaming machines, they are also proud sponsors of several esports tournaments all over the world. They were even one of the sponsors during ESL One Genting 2018.
The Geek Arena will now allow you to compete, relax and even kick back and watch esports games and tournaments. Acer will be sponsoring the Geek Fam DotA 2 team with a wide variety of Predator devices ranging from gaming desktops, monitors and laptops for the players.
