SMM DotA qualifiers-Kuala Lumpur
After a grueling six month of qualifiers across ten different states of Malaysia.
The last and final qualifier is being held in the country's capital, Kuala Lumpur as we speak. Being the final round, it will be no surprise as we see a large number of teams competing for the last four slots of the Grand Finals to be held later next month.
Kuala Lumpur is home to Malaysia's Asian DotA Championship representative, Cybertime who have yet to qualify. They will be fighting to the bitter end to grab their third consecutive gold in the SMM qualifiers. However, being the capital city of Malaysia, the most densely populated area of DotA players, many teams will be present to give Cybertime a hard time at clinching the gold.
Will Cybertime once again prove their dominance in the Malaysian scene? Or will an underdog come and surprise everyone? All these question will be answer in due time. Stay tuned as GosuGamers provide the latest update to the final rounds of qualifiers of SMM Grand National DotA Tournament.
