Huỳnh “Magical” Hữu Nghĩa, head coach of ONE Esports Dota 2 Jakarta Invitational Vietnam Online Qualifier winning team, 496 Gaming, recently spoke to ONE Esports about the upcoming Malaysia Regional Qualifiers.
“We recently added two talented young players to the team, so we’ve been training really hard for the qualifiers,” said Magical.
“I think Reality Rift will be our biggest challenge, because they have a lot of good players and have qualified for a DPC Major before,” he continued. “As for Cignal Ultra and MS Chonburi, they both have new lineups and new players, so their situation is quite similar to ours, but we’re ready to face any team.”

The winner of the Malaysia Regional Qualifier will earn a spot at the ONE Esports Dota 2 Jakarta Invitational, taking place at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition on April 18-19.
If 496 Gaming does makes it through to the Jakarta Invitational, Magical says he’s looking forward to playing against one team in particular.
“We want to play against OG. The fastest way to win a TI is to defeat a two-time TI Champion!”
