Leading from the success of Brunei E-Sports Tournament (BEST) 2017, it’s a given that another E-Sports tournament is bound to sprout up soon after. This time, the Game On Business Management and Services held another tournament at the Aman Lounge, Royal Brunei Recreational Club running over the course of two days from 31st March till 4th April 2018.
It was recorded that over 200 people attended the tournament either as a competitor or a spectator for the renowned hosted games of Fifa 18, Tekken 7 and–for the first time in Brunei–Dragon Ball Fighter Z. The more casual of the bunch can freely try out other timeless classics such as Call of Duty: World War 2, Streetfighter and plenty others.
The main highlight of day one would definitely be the adrenaline-packed moments in the Tekken 7 and Dragon Ball Fighter Z tournament areas. The day ended with the announcement of the Tekken 7 winner, Ivan Pang who bested Ahmad Khusairi bin Azman to bring home the DX Racer Elite chair. Winning both the BEST 2017 and this tournament became a testament to the skills possessed by the best of the best.
Moving away from Tekken 7, the finals of the Dragon Ball Fighter Z tournament came to an exciting end as Awangku Muhammad Zakwan Bin Pengiran Haji Kamarulzaman outlasted Lim Chen Sing (Darren). Zakwan brought home a Huawei Y7 prime mobile phone for the efforts he puts through to win the tournament.
Fifa 18 fans flocked to the second day of the event to witness the finals of the video game tournament. This saw Elmi Shahri who defeated Husnul Hafizh, taking home the DX Racer Elite chair. All the champions of the games also received other prizes from the sponsors of the contests such as a progresif card from Progresif Cellular.
“With E-Sports still in its infant stage in the country, we want to make Brunei an E-Sport hub in the region. Surely, we are going to go big with the events, ranging from Brunei to other ASEAN countries!” said Amar Agus Din, the founder of Game On Business Management and Services in an exclusive interview with Sutera about the tournament.
“We are hoping to host bigger events in the future and these small events serve as a good warmup for what’s to come,” added Amar, giving us a slight teaser of what his company is up to in the upcoming months.
