Many people are watching it online, and he can hear all the messages flowing to him. It means a lot for him to back home.

The DOTA 2 women's squad from Malaysia excelled in the qualifications, winning every game they played. The cast also features Tan Lyn Xhin, Nadrah Saufi, Bette Chia Hooi Ping, Wong Wei Sian, and Stephanie Lim Yuen Lii (Auroraa) (Shizuma). The Grills Gaming brand also makes the players recognisable. Additionally, the group stage victory included victories against the representatives of Singapore, Wales, Australia, and England. They again played Singapore in the semifinals.

The manager and reserve player for the women's team, Tiffani "Oling" Lim, tweeted that the match is familiar to our sister squad. They know each other too well since they were colleagues at various periods. Perhaps the best squad will prevail! This time, the Malaysian delegation came out on top, earning a spot on the podium. The squad met England again in the Finals, winning two games. This indicates that Malaysian women did not lose a match throughout the CEC. After their final victory, the group said on Facebook that they were extremely happy to carry Jalur Gemilang.

The DOTA 2 Open competitors then entered the arena. The group includes William Yeoh (MangO), Denise Danial Bin Abdullah (Wonderboy), Chung Wei Shen (Ws'), Ahmad Ayhad Husam (Ahyad), and Pang Sze Xuan (Ponyo), and Yong Bing Jie. The group is also known as Team Atlantis (Loyd). The Malaysian athletes, like the women's team, advanced to the Finals and faced England there. The Malaysian team won the first match but dropped the second, winning the gold medal in the championship match.

The team captain William told the Global Esports Federation that the Malaysian spectators were great. It is similar to playing at home. He wishes to express his gratitude for their vocal and sincere support. Malaysia took first place in the CEC medal standings with their third and final gold medal.

In a statement to the Global Esports Federation, the teams were questioned about why Malaysia performed so well. Why does Malaysia do so well? The women's team captain, Stephanie, prompted a reaction. Their nation has a wide variety of cultures, yet they get along exceptionally well, which was his strength. On the other hand, William said they need a lot of skilled players to achieve this. They don't know what makes Malaysia so successful in Esports. He thanked all the athletes that took part in the CEC by saying, " All participants have exciting futures, and we hope that winning will inspire upcoming e-athletes in Malaysia and beyond."
