Who would have thought that before the Dota 2 tournament The Manila Masters SEA Qualifier started today, the Governor of DKI Jakarta Basuki Tjahaja Purnama or Ahok will also support the Indonesian team that will compete tonight.

Pak Ahok’s official Twitter account @basuki_btp can be seen by Mr. Ahok congratulating the two representatives of Indonesia Evos Esports and Rex Regum Qeon.
The Indonesian team, Rex Regum Qeon, who just won easily 2-0 against Intelligence Quotient, immediately replied to thank you for the support shown by Mr. Basuki.
Such an honor ? we won in game 1. Thank you Mr. Ahok✌️

This may be a very shocking and exciting tweet for eSports lovers in this country, where eSports is currently still not being taken seriously by the government.
Positive responses from Indonesian gamers were seen in response to Ahok’s tweet.
For example from Abhirama Ramadan which is sufficient in shock a governor who supports gamers.
Hopefully in the future eSports Indonesia can be even better and one day it can be fully supported by the state.
