The GeForce® eSports Xtreme Tournament (GEXT) in Southeast Asia came to a truly exciting ending with teams from Thailand and Vietnam emerging as champions in their respective categories.

 

The tournament kicked off in June in the Philippines and ended with the thrilling grand finals featuring country champions battling it out at the Glorietta Activity Center in Manila on November 25 and 26.

 

More than 1,300 teams from six countries – Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam – battled for supremacy in Defense of the Ancients 2 (Dota 2) and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) over the past six months.

 

Nine teams made it to the final held at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati, Manila, Philippines. Roared by stirring support from the vociferous audience, Team Signature of Thailand (above) came out on top in CS:GO and Team Next Gen Aorus of Vietnam (below) won in Dota 2. Up for grabs were US$10,000 worth of prizes.

 

 

 

Organized by NVIDIA, GEXT took place in GeForce Certified iCafes featuring gaming PCs driven by NVIDIA GeForce GPUs in the Southeast Asian countries. It was supported by gold sponsors Colorful, Coolermaster and Palit and silver sponsors Galax, MSI, Thermaltake, and TTesports.

 

The tournament was aimed at growing the gaming community in the region by creating more accessible opportunities for amateur gamers. It was streamed live to allow gamers and eSports enthusiasts around the world to follow the development online.

 

“We are warmed by the enthusiastic response with thousands of teams taking part and millions more following GEXT either at the event venues or online. NVIDIA and our partners are thrilled to be able to help fan the growing interest in eSports across the region. Our award-winning GeForce GTX 10 series GPUs enabled the gamers to have better gaming experience,” said Simon Tan, Director, Consumer Business, APAC South, NVIDIA.
