Evil Geniuses, Forward Gaming and MOOA will kick off their journey in this year’s DPC season at Kuala Lumpur Major main event.

Evil Geniuses appeared to be a step ahead of the herd throughout the entirety of Kuala Lumpur Major North America Qualifiers. The surprise of the qualifiers was the play of MOOA. Many figured that Evil Geniuses, Forward Gaming and compLexity were shoo-ins for qualification. However, compLexity was upset by MOOA, a team created out of the remnants of Wind and Rain and experienced a valiant run through European qualifiers for The International 2018. They lost in the finals to the current International champions, OG.

Forward Gaming, formerly VGJ.Storm, continued where they left off and with a new face. Saahil ‘UNiVeRsE’ Arora joined the squad post International shake up. Unfortunately, the move has not helped them capture an elusive series victory against Evil Geniuses thus far. They may have that opportunity once again at the main event.

Kuala Lumpur Major boasts a prize pool of $1,000,000 and 15,000 DPC points and this year every team gets a taste.
