Vietnam’s GIGABYTE Marines are one of the youngest professional organizations in the world, having been formed at the tail end of 2016. They wasted no time in picking up top talent for the region and as a result rampaged through their first split in the Vietnam Championship Series A Spring Season. Through the regular season and playoffs they didn’t drop a single game to any opponent, showcasing just how dominant they could be. Their momentum carried through to the Garena Premier League (GPL), where they were seeded into the playoffs and subsequently qualified for the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational after dispatching the opposition in convincing fashion. If their early success is any indication, they’ll be a team to watch as they square up against some of the best teams in the world.
