While many struggle to make good on their New Year’s resolutions, Orange Esport’s HoN division wasted little time in getting their act together. Racing past the finish line, the intrepid five ran out of the recent National HoN (Heroes of Newerth) Championships in Malaysia victors of the first major tournament of 2013 and RM300,000 in the bag.
Orange.Esports, acclaimed eSports outfit from Malaysia is a team that boasts professionals in several disciplines of the sport, namely DotA, Counter-Strike, League of Legends and the Heroes of Newerth. While the gamers in the other sports have derived much fanfare from the exposure of the title to the masses, Heroes of Newerth or HoN for short, has largely been the dark horse to the scene.
2012 started bright for some, brighter for others, but for a handful who made the trip down to Thailand for the Thailand Game Show 2012 (TGS 2012), their fortunes met with a windfall. Team Impunity, or iMp for short, were handed a very nifty sum of SGD$16,000 for their efforts at the recent Thailand Games Show, held over the second week of January.
