Yeik progresses from playing Tetris to Dota 2 professional

IPOH, Starting with playing Tetris video game which is a tile matching puzzle when he was four, Yeik Nai Zheng, 23 or better known as MidOne in the esports cyber world, became a Dota 2 professional four years ago.

When I was 13, I participated in a tournament at Universiti Sains Malaysia in Penang with some friends. At that time, it was difficult travelling back and forth with my friends to join the competition.

The prize was worth RM1 million’, unfortunately we lost and I felt very down at that time. But I did not give up and after I graduated from high school I approached other players and it was at that time I got spotted and began playing at international level, he said and added that he was 19 years old and was still a student at Universiti Multimedia Melaka.

He was speaking at a media conference of the Esport Professional Industry Conference (EPIC) 2019 at the Meru Convention Centre here today.
