SEA Gamer Mall (SEAGM) collaborates with Lenovo Malaysia and Esports Integrated (ESI) to provide grassroots gamers a platform to connect, have fun and enjoy great rewards.
SEA Gamer Mall (SEAGM) together with Lenovo Malaysia and Esports Integrated (ESI) announces RE:LOAD & RE:PLAY Gaming Week (RNRGW) from 18 until 31 October 2021, as part of ESI’s Malaysia Esports Festival 2021 key programs. RNRGW aims to provide grassroots gamers an opportunity to test their skills in 2 show matches, PUBGM and DotA 2. Meanwhile, gamers will also get to enjoy great deals by Lenovo.
Through RNRGW, it aims to promote and foster a healthy approach to gaming and minimize toxic behaviors by gamers. One of the biggest challenges in promoting esports is the negative perception surrounding gaming culture. For example, toxic behaviors as a player or viewer, gaming addiction, and the perceived unhealthy lifestyle as a gamer. SEAGM together with its partners remains committed to supporting the gaming ecosystem through investment in esports, gaming conventions, and strategic partnerships to ensure a positive and healthy environment for gamers to grow and develop. This is in line with the Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS)’s intent. Specifically, under Strategic Priority 2 (Towards Responsible Gaming and Esports Ethics) of KBS’s Strategic Plan for Esports Development 2020-2025.
RNRGW is part of Malaysia Esports Festival 2021, brought to life by KBS, ESI, and Spacerubix. The collaboration lasts throughout October 2021, in conjunction with Hari Belia Negara, Hari Sukan Negara, and World Esports Day 2021. Other than that, RNRGW is also a platform for SEAGM to support the collaboration. SEAGM is giving back to the Malaysian gaming community through prize pool sponsorship of around RM1,000 worth of SEAGM credits. In addition, SEAGM is also offering a discount on PUBGM Unknown Cash (UC) for all viewers worth RM31,800.
