League of Legends has grown tremedously in popularity in the Southeast Asian region, yet very little is known about the competitive scene from the area. We've only had the opportunity to see a few Southeast Asian teams compete at WCG 2011, IEM Guangzhou and Go4LoL Pro Asia so far.
However, things are about to change because Garena is now hosting a series of events until the end of the year under the name of Garena Premier League, where top teams from the region will compete for a prize pool of $40.000. The league will be broadcasted by Garena across multiple streams in different languages on Youtube's Livestream and features a high production value.
Considering that the Season II World Championship has reserved one spot for Taiwan and a second spot for the rest of Southeast Asia, we propose you to follow this intriguing league which will give us a better overview on the regional scene. The winners of the Opening Event were Taipei Assassins, arguably the favorites of series, whom have also shown us impressive wins recently in the Go4LoL Pro Asia against teams such as Najin e-mFire and Invictus Gaming.
