Fire Kam, the now former CEO of Fire Dragoon Esports, is spearheading the development of a new esports organisation called FrostFire Sdn Bhd, which is based in Selangor. While Kam is known as one of the first figures in Malaysia to “push the development of esports teams towards building an infrastructure and support system around his teams”, Fire Dragoon’s cease of operations certainly would not be stopping the former CEO from continuing his passion in esports.
Kam has this to say: “We plan to be different by focusing on having an effective support structure such as having a full time manager and coach for each teams. In fact, we are actively exploring sports science practise into our teams, although it’s just at the starting phase. We were one of the first esports company in Malaysia that hire and train players to compete in esports, while also building them to be a public figure, especially toward the media and the esports audience - and we do not plan to stop there.”
Kam also noted that the previous years spent in esports had taught him that there are various “directions and perspectives in building a sustainable esports market.”
“It is unfortunate that the chapter with Fire Dragoon has come to an end, but I believe that the experience that I’ve gained together with my team, we would be able to bring FrostFire to greater heights,” he stated.
Additionally, Franky How, Managing Director of Brightstar Computers, will be joining FrostFire as one of the directors.
In terms of gaming, FrostFire will be putting their focus on PC and mobile games. Additionally, FrostFire’s first official Arena of Valor team has recently qualified into the Kuala Terengganu Youth BN Cup AOV tournament’s qualifications round as the Top 2 team.
Franky said that they will also be looking at other games such as PUBG and Fortnite while keeping an eye out on certain console games such as “Street Fighter V, Tekken 7 or even Clash Royale as one of our future options for esports teams”.
