Alben Tan’s Davao map takes 4th in Overwatch’s SEA map design contest
In Overwatch’s 2020 Southeast Asia Map Design Contest, Alben Tan’s Davao map won the 4th and took the 1st place in the Popularity Awards.
The concept map is heavily influenced by popular Filipino themes, including the prevalence of several popular stores such as Jollibee (renamed as Jollebei), 711 (renamed as 7 Elven), Palawan Pawnshop (renamed as Polowan Pawnshop), and sari-sari stores with the iconic “Bawal Umutang” sign nationwide. It includes a vehicle design for tricycles, as well as traditional City Hall architecture with a clock tower.
The overall theme is also Filipino, with palm trees near the City Hall, rainbow-colored umbrellas close to what appears to be a street vendor stall, and fiesta designs hanging overhead.
