Markhor secured the Runner up spot of the CS GO while the Promethus team seal the second spot of Dota II in the Dew Gamers Arena 2018.
This was not just a win for these teams, but a historical moment for e-gaming in Pakistan and a nationwide cause for celebration. Big names of the industry and iconic celebrities like Feroz Khan, Iqra Aziz, Uzair Jawal, Mahenur Haider, Mikaal Zulfiqar and Cybil Chaudhry were seen at the event showing their enthusiasm for gaming and congratulating the teams.
The event ended with a great performance by the band Strings. As the crowd went crazy swooning over their tunes, one couldn’t help but wonder if this was the beginning of events holding such grandeur in Pakistan.
I'd say Pakistani teams have done the hard work and sacrificed quite a bit to get to where they are today. Looking at such enthusiasm and talent, one would hope to see them competing on international levels too.
