During the 2019 SEA Games, six games were competed as part of the esports category, including Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Arena Of Valor, Dota 2, Tekken 7, Starcraft 2, and Hearthstone.

The 2021 SEA Games will include esports games like Dota 2, Arena Of Valor and Pro Evolution Soccer, but there’s no confirmation yet on the rest (the remaining three games).

Malaysia won medals for Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (Bronze) and Hearthstone (Gold). They were Hearthstone player was Dr. Yew “wkyew90” Weng Kean (check out when we spent the day with the gold medalist here) and team Shopee Bosskurr.
