Yoodo – Malaysia’s first truly customisable digital mobile service is adding another notch to its growing list of “firsts” by signing on the champions of the recent Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) MOBILE National Championships (PMNC).
The move into e-sports started with Yoodo becoming the first Official Digital Telco for the immensely popular PMNC, by partnering with gaming giant, Tencent Games. On the back of this exciting partnership, Yoodo introduced the first ever PUBG MOBILE-specific data add-on, another first in the country.
Now as an epic conclusion to Malaysia’s first official PMNC, Yoodo has taken on tournament champions Gank FTY to announce Yoodo Gank as their official PUBG e-sports team.
Yoodo Gank, managed under Gank Asia, consists of skilled gamers; team captain Aiman Amirul Bin Mohd Said (ManParang), 22, Mohd Hazim Bin Abd Hamid (Jimboy), 25, Abdul Azim Ikromi Bin Abdul Rashad (Draxx), 20 and Mohammad Hafizi Bin Baharudin (Geek), 23.
Commenting on the announcement, Chow Tuck Mun, Head of Yoodo, said, “We are excited to announce the next phase in our commitment to e-sports and gamers with the unveiling of Yoodo Gank. PUBG MOBILE is one of the world’s most popular games with 30 million active daily users worldwide. Through Yoodo Gank we aim to cement Malaysia’s name as a true challenger in this arena.”
They say if you can’t join the Gank, beat the Gank. Yoodo Gank will be the team to beat and will be taking the PUBG MOBILE competition scene by storm by participating in a string of national, regional and international tournaments.
Expanding on this mission further, Yoodo will be introducing Beat-the-Champions, a monthly online tournament where PUBG MOBILE players from across the country can aim their scopes at the champions, Yoodo Gank, to take them down and take home a cash prize of RM600 plus RM50 in Yoodo credit.
The monthly tournament begins on 28 March with a two round session based on the standard PMNC 2018 scoring system with additional points awarded for kills on Yoodo Gank members. Players can join in the game by visiting the competition microsite 2-hours before the match. There will also be live streams of the matches on Facebook for viewers to catch the incredible action.
Meanwhile, PUBG MOBILE fans can also enjoy the game with zero data charges thanks to Yoodo’s special promotion that provides Yoodoers with 20GB PUBG MOBILE game-specific data up until the end of April.
Yoodo’s is also setting in motion the next phase of their game plan to further support e-sports by collaborating with the world’s largest gaming company – Tencent Games to further celebrate the 1st Anniversary of PUBG MOBILE with local fans at KL Live 23 March, Saturday at 6pm onwards. Building further on this collaboration, Yoodo is already working on the exciting follow-up to the successful inaugural PMNC that will be launched later this year.
