Why the Malaysian teams are the ones to watch at the Honor of Kings Invitational S2

The stakes are high as the Honor of Kings Invitational S2 heads to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, with 13 teams from all around the world competing for the lion’s share of the US$300,000 prize pool.

The tournament takes place from June 29 to July 7, and features six teams from across Southeast Asia: Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Myanmar.

Representing their home country is Malaysia Qualifier winner LGD Gaming MY, and SEA Last Chance winner Team Secret.

From Indonesia, we have Rex Regum Qeon, better known as RRQ, who is invited as the SEA Partnership Team, and Kagendra as the Indonesia Qualifier winner.

From the Philippines there’s Boom Esports and Impunity from the Myanmar and Cambodia qualifier.

Global teams descending for the fight

The tournament will also welcome Honor of Kings Invitational S1 winner Vivo Keyd Stars from Brazil, FUT Esports from Turkiye, Isurus from Argentina, Team Vitality from France, R8 Esports from Saudi Arabia, Loops from Brazil, and All Gamers Global from Hong Kong, China.

“We’re thrilled to welcome these amazing Honor of Kings teams from Southeast Asia to the upcoming Honor of Kings Invitational Season 2,” said Gaga Li, head of Honor of Kings Southeast Asia Publishing and Esports, Level Infinite.

“The upcoming event in Kuala Lumpur will give these teams a chance to prove their skill against the best teams in the world and demonstrate their ability to win on the biggest stage. It’s opportunities like this that excited us so much when we launched the Honor of Kings Invitational Series.

“A chance to prove their skill against the best teams in the world.”

“We can’t wait to see the unpredictable storylines, rivalries and friendships created at the Season 2 event kicking off on June 29 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,” Li added.

Why you should watch Malaysia’s Team Secret

Team Secret is looking to take the fight to the Grand Final despite the pressure of playing in front of a home crowd.

Malaysian Honor of Kings esports teams are some of the strongest outside of China, and they will be looking to prove it against the Honor of Kings Invitational S1 champions Vivo Keyd Stars.

However, they will have to make it past the group stage first. They will be up against Indonesian squad Kagendra and Argentinian squad Isurus.

Team Secret qualified for the Honor of Kings Invitational S2 through the SEA Last Chance Qualifiers. They defeated Nova Esports in an intense 3-2 Grand Final.

Team Secret is not a new name in esports. The organization has teams in multiple competitive esports games, with the most famous being its Dota 2 squad. However, for Honor of Kings, Team Secret is relatively young. Team Secret, formed two months ago in April, consists of a mix of veteran players and new talent.

The players on the team, led by captain Ang “Yuhan” Aik Yeong, have been playing Honor of Kings for an average of six years. The youngest player in the squad is midlaner Chong “Loong” Khean Loong, who will be looking to display his skills against the competition.

“We have watched Kagendra play in the Indonesian Qualifiers but not much is known about Isurus. However, we are fairly confident to achieve the desired result,” said Team Secret’s Honor of Kings manager Kelvin Pang.

Kagendra from Indonesia is also keeping an eye out for Secret. “We must beat Team Secret … we will it give our best shot to win the championship,” said Kagendra’s coach Albert “Kyoka” Reinaldo.

Tough global competitors

Even if Team Secret makes it to the playoffs, they will also have to do their best against dark horses RRQ, Boom Esports, and All Gamers Global, as well as tournament favorites LGD Gaming MY and Vivo Keyd Stars.

“We are aiming to focus on each game at a time, stay grounded and just give our 100 percent towards every obstacle we face. But if I were to give a fantasy prediction, I would love for an all-Malaysian Grand Final affair between Team Secret and LGD.MY,” said Pang.
