About Orange Esports Malaysia

Orange Esports Malaysia’s HoN team first made a splash in the SEA scene back in mid 2011. With a strong roster and a dedicated sponsor the team took only a few months to jump from 4th, then 3rd, then 2nd place finishes to take their first gold in the Invasion CyberCafe LAN, over other top SEA team, MuFC. Over the next year ORGE went from a top contender, to the clear favorite in any event they played in. Since their win in the first Malaysia HoN National Championship Qualifier ORGE has not settled for less than Gold, racking up 4 subsequent first place finishes in SEA events. The team’s success is not limited to SEA, they also recently qualified and participated in the DreamHoN event at Dreamhack Winter this past November. Here the ORGE team made an upset, qualifying for the playoff bracket over team V0TE (now sG), a favorite to place top 3. Finishing with a solid fourth place the SEA team flew back home and took first place in the Malaysia HoN National Championship, earning them a cool $100,000 USD for gold. Just days after their victory prominent member of ORGE XXF_ left the team to play League of Legends. Questions about the future of the team arose, but were quickly put to rest as former MuFC players kiDDO` and Nick_Oks` were brought on to form the current 6 man roster. While most NA/EU members of the HoN scene don’t know a ton about the SEA teams we can all agree that if anyone from that region is to make a splash in the upcoming SBHL, it is Orange Esports Malaysia. Look for their unique play style and strategy to hit the battlefield in just two weeks as the Sound Blaster Heroes League playoffs quickly approach.
