By Hakim Mahari

KUALA LUMPUR, 8 June 2021: The Geek Fam’s disappointing performances in the previous seventh season’s Mobile Legends Professional League (MPL MY) taught them to remedy their errors.

The proof is in the fact that they won XM Esports Cup 2021 tournament organised by GamesMY Esports on Sunday (6 June), taking home RM5,000 in prize money and a trophy.

As coach Ariff Iswandi or Amoux puts it, mistakes teach players to bounce back even better.

Red Esports took home RM3,000, while Madness Esports took home RM1,500 in third place.

Geek Fam defeated Red Esports 3-2 in the grand final. The match was suspenseful as Red Esports came dangerously close to victory, but Geek Fam’s defence was even stronger.

According to a spokesman from GamesMY Esports, Azmudeen, the response was positive from the vibrant community, which appreciated the concept of allowing non-MPL teams to compete in the tournament.

The tournament brought together 256 MLBB teams and seven invited teams.

Among the invited teams are:

  • Red Esports
  • Geek Fam
  • Suhaz EVOS
  • Orange Esports
