OPPO, Mineski PH, Globe, Riot Games SEA, partner for eSports tournaments
OPPO, Mineski Philippines, Globe Telecom, and Riot Games Southeast Asia, have announced a partnership to kickoff the roster of eSports tournaments and activities.
OPPO, as the official smartphone brand partner, pledges support by providing the latest smartphones to players. Mineski Philippines, on the other hand, will operate the official national tournaments through the Philippine Pro Gaming League (PPGL). These tournaments will qualify the best teams to represent the country in Southeast Asian tournaments and, hopefully, the world championship.
Mineski holds the official licenses to hold esports tournaments for VALORANT and League of Legends: Wild Rift. Tournaments for both games will be held throughout the year, featuring a format that would allow the best teams in the country to compete against top gamers in Southeast Asia, and possibly, the world.
The tournaments will be done through the Philippine Pro Gaming League, co-presented by Globe Telecom.
A points system will also be implemented. Dubbed as the “Wild Rift Points System by Globe,” this will govern the total cash prize that the best performing teams in the national tournament will receive. The total prize pool amounts to PHP 10,000,000 and the points will also determine how a team can further advance into the Philippine Playoffs.
Spectators and gamers alike can look forward to the pre-season Wild Rift Icon series on March 20-21, 2021. The first pre-season tournament in the Philippines for Riot Games’ mobile MOBA will pit eight professional esports teams against each other, including Globe Telecom’s esports team Liyab.
All updates for registrations and broadcasts will be posted on the official PPGL Facebook page.
