KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Aug. 22, 2018 — August 6th, was a sad day for Malaysia but it wasn’t the end of the world. The one thing that makes the Malaysian Esports players one of the top-notch game players in the world is their ability to soldier on. 5v5 Esports believes that Malaysian players can claim their place on the world stage and bring honor to the Malaysian flag in the next ASEAN tournament. And, to make sure Malaysia has its place in Esports, 5v5 has dedicated its resources to build a strong Malaysian Esports team through its 2018 national Esports tournament.

More than a hundred teams have registered for the tournament, making 5v5 one of the biggest tournaments for mobile Esports gamers in Malaysia. In comparison to past Esports game organizers, this tournament drew a larger group of Esports fans and players, making it a substantial platform for hardcore Esports players who have never had the opportunity to battle on a national stage that would give them the opportunity to build their skills.

With more than a hundred teams playing from all over Malaysia, the stakes are high, the energy level is soaring, and the teams are enthusiastic to prove who’s #1. This is their chance to win back a significant position that honours their country. Although the prize for the competition is not as tremendous as one would hope, but the opportunity to play against teams from 13 different states is worth millions alone. 5v5 has made this tournament a hassle-free and affordable process for all Esports players in Malaysia with an aim to build a strong Malaysian Esports team that can prove to be a champion in the next ASEAN tournament organized by Tencent China.

Following the loss of M8H and KT on two different occasions in China, Malaysian mobile Esports teams have a bigger responsibility to bear. And, with this online tournament, there’s a chance for Malaysian Esports players to prove their worth and bring back the joy and happiness that they owe their fans.

Philippines Continues Chasing POGOs Despite Reports of Closures
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Philippine government has said that it will not be easing up on its pursuit of outstanding taxes from Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs) despite revelations that some of them had shut down and left the country.

As per reports, two licensed POGO operators and several service providers have closed operations due to stringent tax rules imposed by the Bureau of Internal Revenue and statements from gaming regulator PAGCOR that no POGO would be allowed to resume post-COVID until all liabilities were paid.

PAGCOR Chairman and CEO Andrea Domingo named Suncity Group and Don Tencess Asian Solutions as the two POGOs to have left, although Suncity denied this was the case when contacted by Inside Asian Gaming.

“Suncity Group spares no effort to develop itself as a global integrated VIP entertainment conglomerate. The junket business in Manila is definitely important to us and we can’t find any reason to leave Manila at this particular moment,” the company said.

“In regards to the comment provided by Mdm Andrea Domingo, we think she is referring to telebetting services, which has nothing to do with the junket business that Suncity Group operates in Manila. We will continue to develop our VIP entertainment business in licensed gaming operators in Manila, and provide seamless VIP services to our guests,” Suncity said.

Nevertheless, the authorities insisted that they will continue to crack down on POGOs.

“I think Secretary Dominguez will not budge from the position that they need to pay all their taxes, including the franchise tax,” said Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, referencing Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III.

“Now, although the President has said we need all the resources, all the revenues that we can derive from all, including POGO operations to fund Covid-19 response of the government, I think the bottom line is they have to settle their tax obligations,” Harry Roque said.
