Founded by Keat and Joseph in 2016, Geek Fam has since become one of the up and coming names in the competitive arena of Asia’s eSports Dota2 teams. The team started off their journey by making it into the finals of the Phase 2 Qualifiers of the ESL One Genting, followed by constant invitations to some of the biggest Dota2 tournaments such as The Kiev Major, Epicenter, The Summit 7 and The International.
Creating a warm atmosphere of mutual support and respect, Geek Fam’s founders are constantly involved in the team’s progress, thoughtfully planning out and analyzing strategies together to further improve their performance in the competitive gaming arena. As a result of this, the Geeks continue strongly motivated to play hard, to be one of the world’s top eSports teams, and to establish Geek Fam as one of the top brands out there.
Geek Fam is more than just a team. We are a bunch of young, passionate and motivated geeks who want to take the eSports standard to the next level.
