KUALA LUMPUR: The former Malaysian Dota 2 squad Johnny’s Revenge is now formally known as G Guard Esports after signing a sponsorship deal with a local company of the same name.

The team, which was formed by up and coming player Johnny is now being helmed by WinteR (Chan Litt-Binn) after the former left the squad for Filipino outfit Mineski.

It is understood that company behind G Guard had entered sponsorship negotiations with Natit Gaming, but talks fell through and WinteR’s team was approached instead.

The current roster is identical to the old MuFc squad in 2013, where they had qualified for the International tournament that year.

G Guard made its appearance in a local Malaysian competition called S.O.X 2014 Fantasy Fest, where they won the qualifier held in the state of Selangor.

The team is also currently competing in Star Series Season XI, and the Join Dota League, where they are in the Premier division.

Statement from G Guard Esports:

G Guard.Dota2 team is proud to announce the joining of 5 veteran Malaysian Dota players. With their vast experience and knowledge of the game, we are certainly able to become a force to be reckoned with in the international scene.

Our very first achievement is winning the  Selangor qualifier.

Team G Guard Roster:

Winter (Chan Litt-Binn)
ling (Sim  Woi Cheong)
Sharky (Raymond Wong Kie Yong)
dabeliuteef (Loh Jun Liong)
TFG (Wong Wei Khit Daniel)
