The Honor of Kings Invitational Series 2 champions have been crowned, as LGD Gaming Malaysia beat all comers in the hit MOBA to take home the gold. But that's not all, because there's big news ahead for Honor of King's esports scene in the wake of the global release.

The big news, of course, is that LGD Gaming Malaysia were the winner in the Honor of Kings Invitational tournament. They defeated Team Secret in the grand finals and took home the lion's share of a $300,000 prize pool.

This success also means that LGD will make an appearance at the Honor of Kings Invitational Midseason tournament taking place at the Esports World Cup in Saudi Arabia in August. They'll face off with 12 other international teams for the chance to win even more prestige and prize money.

Bigger and better

But as we noted above, there's also the news that Honor of Kings will inaugurate a new Southeast Asia Championship as part of their ambitions to boost a major esports scene for the game. Honor of Kings has been a huge hit in its native country of China, and since its global release, there have been signs that the mobile MOBA has major ambitions to dominate competitive gaming.
