PH team bags local leg of APAC Predator League 2018

ASIA-PACIFIC Predator League 2018, Predator Gaming’s brand new DOTA:2 league and the most anticipated eSports competition, recently concluded its Philippine Leg at the High Grounds Café. Quid Pro Quo takes home PHP 50,000.00 and will be flying to Indonesia to represent the Philippines in the finals.

Setting the mood for an intense competition, the High Grounds Café was adorned with black stone boulders, crystals, snow, and grass to create an ice dungeon representative of Predator Gaming’s frost-forged vibe. This set-up served as the backdrop for the Philippine finals, putting a dramatic end to the national leg. 

Following around 6 hours of DOTA:2 action, Quid Pro Quo emerged as the victor of the Philippine finals, besting Alpha Gaming on the 3rd round. Prior to succeeding in the national finals, Quid Pro Quo had previously competed and won in the North Luzon leg of the competition. 

Quid Pro Quo takes home P50K from the P220,000.00 Philippine eliminations prize pool; Alpha Gaming takes home PHP 30,000.00; and Vigggo.Net and NCGC.Davao take home PHP 10,000.00 each. Quid Pro Quo will be moving on to compete in the final round to be held in  Indonesia. Vying for the $150,000.00 prize pool, Quid Pro Quo will be competing against the national winners of 6 other countries in Asia Pacific, namely Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, India, Hong Kong, and Indonesia.

“The astounding reception we have enjoyed in this year’s competition has confirmed that the eSports scene in the country is booming,” Eric Redulfin, General Manager of TNC shares.

Predator Gaming established Predator League as a means to empower amateur gamers to showcase their skills and talent on a global scene. Endeavoring to discover and put the spotlight on both professional and non-professional gamers, Predator League aims to capture fresh talent from the Philippines and the Pan Asia Pacific region’s bustling amateur eSports scene, particularly for DOTA:2.

“The Philippine leg of Asia Pacific Predator League 2018 has come to a momentous end, and we could not be any happier with the level of skill and sportsmanship we have witnessed here in the Philippines,” Andrew Hou, President of Predator Gaming Pan Asia Pacific Region shares. 

“Still, we see potential for tremendous growth. We are excited to unearth what we know for sure are incredible gaming talents in the Philippines. More than that, we are hopeful that we will be able to recruit more people to summon their strength and to discover the wonderful world of Predator Gaming,” Hou said to the media.

In the Philippines, the Predator League 2018 eliminations saw the participation of 127 registered teams. All elimination legs were done in partnership with THENET.COM (TNC), the gaming company’s eSports partner. Predator League also supports the Philippine DotA pride, TNC Pro Team-DotA 2.  

“The gaming community can rest assured that TNC and Predator will continue to work towards elevating gaming in the Philippines,” TNC’s Redulfin explains.

Tearing down the house (Second of a series)

‘The draft Federal Constitution is a clear example of tearing a house down in order to install a new door—where the new door goes into an existing door jamb. There’s barely anything new here, and the few things that are new, don’t actually need a constitutional amendment.’

‘The critique of Gene Lacza Pilapil, assistant professor of Political Science at the University of the Philippines-Diliman, one of the resource persons, should warn us about the draft Federal Constitution produced by the Duterte-created Consultative Committee.’
