Mineski, Globe, and OPPO join forces to host a series of eSports tournaments this year focusing on Valorant and League of Legends (LOL) Wild Rift. Given the continuous growth of eSports in the Philippines, the three companies are working closely with Riot Games in making the tournament series possible. Currently, Mineski holds the license to conduct official eSports tournaments for Valorant and LoL Wild Rift.
All official tournaments will be conducted under the Philippine Pro Gaming League (PPGL), where these tournaments will qualify the best teams to represent the country in Southeast Asian tournaments and, hopefully, the world championship.
For the LoL Wild Rift tournament, a point system will be implemented, where points will determine a team’s chance in advancing to the playoffs. In addition, 1 point is equivalent to one Peso, and a total prize pool of Php 10 million is up for grabs.
The pre-season for the LoL Wild Rift tournament will happen on March 20-21, where eight professional teams–including Globe’s eSports team Liyab–will be battling in a series of matches. The tournament will be divided into two splits–Summer Split from April to June and Fall Split from July to September–and each tournament will have a Php 5 million prize pool. For the Valorant tournament, there will be three splits, with the first split happening later in February
“Through this collaboration, we promise to support the growing local esports industry by offering an entire ecosystem of products that are not only known as an entertainment powerhouse, but also the next best gaming tool for the everyday Filipino gamers”, OPPO Philippines Marketing Director Raymond Xia said.
All updates for registrations and broadcasts will be posted on PPGL’s Facebook page.
