:::::::::::::::::::::::::::: NEWS UPDATES::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Go International Group has secured a partnership with World’s Largest LAN party and computer festival, DreamHack Sweden.

Organisers of Indie Youth Fest will be putting together an independent homegrown tournament for pro-gamers. Get ready for the Go International Electronic Sports Cup 2009, also known as GO.esc. In partnership with the Largest Computer / Digital Festival in the world that also threw the most enormous LAN party as recorded by Guinness Book of Records (2007), GO.esc doubles up as the DreamHack Malaysian Qualifiers.

Games line-up include Counter Strike 1.6 and several other games to be announced on 1st August. Teams are invited to register in person, or online from 1st August onwards. We’re sorry! Requests before that date will not be entertained.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::: 2008::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

In 2008, Indie Youth Fest was held in collaboration with the Electronic Sports World Cup 2008 Malaysia. This was an international tournament where Team Malaysia headed to San Jose, USA for the global grand finals and came home with a Silver Medal. This also created the opportunity for the pro-gramers, Team Kingsurf who play DotA to meet with the Prime Minister! Thanks to the industrious team at Go International Group for helping make history as they were the FIRST VIDEO GAMERS TO MEET A PRIME MINISTER in Malaysia.The sad news is that in March 2009, ESWC’s main organiser GAMES SERVICES based in Paris, France announced that the company had gone under receivership and will no longer be able to hold the international tournament. That news left the world shocked and saddened as it was the ‘indie’ big brother of video games championships. We are still awaiting news on the possibility of ESWC being revived… visit our blog www.eswcmalaysia.wordpress.com

    you MUST add StarCraft to this, as other will already win, with StarCraft (SC, or BW or SCBW or BroodWar) easily winning .. 😉

  3. Jujiko says:

    How the hell can u have an e-sports event without starcraft in it?

  4. Major says:

    I,ll support this e-sport with all my heart as long you include Starcraft : Broodwar in it.

    Even those Swedish want to see a Malaysian representative for SC:BW

  5. Darkstar says:

    starcraft:broodwar is by far the best competitive game to be played on such a event.

    it’s a shame you didn’t suggest it right from the start

  6. exalted says:

    Get Starcraft up in this event, for sure.

  7. raptor says:

    not having starcraft on this event would be like not having salt next to pepper

  8. X says:

    If Starcraft:Broodwar is not listed as the official game, I,m seriously gonna cry.
