The NVIDIA GeForce eSports Xtreme Tournament (GEXT) in Southeast Asia came to an end with teams from Thailand and Vietnam winning 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 Gloria Activity Center in Manila last weekend.
More than 1,300 teams from six countries – Indonesia, Malaysia, the 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 in to the finals held at the Glorietta Activity Center. With extreme support from the vociferous audience, Team Signature of Thailand came out on top in CS:GO. Team Next Gen Aorus of Vietnam on the other hand won in Dota 2. Up for grabs were
US$10,000 worth of prizes.
Organised 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 sponsor 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.
“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.
