Pakistan has recently been making headlines in the competitive gaming world when a team from Zalmi Portal represented the country at WESG 2017. Although they didn’t advance through the first stage, their performance was very admirable going up against the top teams of the Asia region. However, another team also traveled all the way to China to represent Pakistan in DOTA 2 under the name of Eximious eSports.
The team roster comprised of the following members :
Sheraz “Sh1zzy” Akhtar
Musawer “Ghost” Khan Nawaz
Muhammad “Ksg” Ibrahim
Ahsan “Arrowhead” Hameed
Muhammad “T1Tan” Shehwar
Eximious also entered WESG as first timers and similar to Zalmi Portal, they were up against the best teams of the region such as EVOS, 7th Heaven and Alpha Red. They managed to beat the 2 former teams but lost to Alpha red in the playoffs. Eximious still secured a position in the next stage of the tournament to advance to the grand finals in March 2018.
We wish Eximious eSports all the best for WESG tournament and all their future endeavors.
