In the intense battle for the second runner up position, both Jeffrey and ‘Vitaminluv’ kept the audience in suspense – with each player’s avatars worn down to their last Health Point. Unable to defend himself from successive rapid attacks from Jeffrey, ‘Vitaminluv’ finished in fourth place. 

The Swordsman Online World Championship saw participation of more than 30 gamers from 7 countries. The championship was organized by IWPLAY WORLD and Perfect World Beijing in collaboration with GASH+ and Taiwan E- Sport League (TESL).

Hailing from Mainland China, ‘Tangjun’, leading the House of Tong, emerged as the Swordsman Online World Champion. Eliminating his strong opponents and defeating players from South Korea in the Final round, ‘Tangjun’ succeeded in clinching the title of ‘Chief of the Martial Art World’. 

The organisers of Swordsman Online World Championship would like to thank all sponsors for the event – include MOL AccessPortal Sdn. Bhd. From Malaysia for their support in this tournament. They would also like to convey their appreciation to all participants, and the heartiest of congratulations to the winners.

Among the seven was Chooi Siew Pan, 39, hailing from Perak, who said, “I have been a supporter of the brand in Malaysia for over 10 years and that’s why I am grateful to Carlsberg for giving me a smooth beginning to the year with this cash prize! Carlsberg is always a part of every gathering with my friends and this has really helped us develop a strong bond. For sure, I am sharing this special ang pow and good fortune with them.”

Lee Yong Keong, 43, a Selangor resident, said, “What’s most important for me is for my business to run smoothly and generate as much income as possible! To have won the RM13,888 cash prize means I can definitely look forward to better times in the Year of the Sheep, which will be even greater if I end up winning the one million Ringgit!”  

Thirty-seven-year-old Tan Kim Guan from Malacca also has hopes for a smoother year ahead. He said, “I won this when I was out with friends and I was very surprised to receive such good luck! For me, a good lunar year would be for my friends and family to enjoy a healthier life and for myself to have more than sufficient earnings. This cash prize will be shared with them all and I plan to also give back to charity.”  

Wong See Min, 40, also from Perak, said, “I have been a Carlsberg supporter for as long as I can remember and this is my second time winning great prizes. Previously, I also participated in Carlsberg’s ‘Are You Fan Enough?’ contest which won me a trip to Europe to catch the semi-finals of the Euro 2012! I seem to get lucky when drinking Carlsberg and hopefully this time round Carlsberg will give me a smooth year by making me its first millionaire!”
