Mineski and Riot Games unveil tourneys lined up for the year

MINESKI Philippines and Riot Games Southeast Asia recently unveiled the roster of esports tournaments and activities lined up for staging this year.

In a virtual press conference on Tuesday, officials of the groups expressed their excitement over their partnership, which is geared towards building and sustaining the momentum of the growing esports and gaming industry in the Philippines through Riot’s biggest titles.

Also on board are Globe, Mineski’s long-time partner, and OPPO as their official mobile phone company partner for gaming.

“We are thrilled to introduce even more exciting competitive experiences for players across the Philippines alongside our partner, Mineski. Mineski’s network and expertise have enabled us to bring our esports vision to life, and we look forward to creating a memorable series of tournaments for fans of VALORANT and League of Legends: Wild Rift,” said Chris Tran, Head of Esports for Riot Games Southeast Asia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau, in a statement.

Mineski, which has the official licenses to hold esports tournaments for VALORANT and League of Legends: Wild Rift here, will operate the official national tournaments for the titles through the Philippine Pro Gaming League (PPGL).

These tournaments will qualify the best teams to represent the country in Southeast Asian tournaments and the world championship.

Globe will be a presenting partner in the PPGL.

For Wild Rift, competition has been enhanced with the adoption of a points system, the first to be implemented for a mobile game.

Dubbed the “Wild Rift Points System by Globe,” the innovation will govern the total cash prize that the best performing teams in the national tournament will receive. The total prize pool amounts to P10 million and the points will also determine how a team can further advance into the Philippine Playoffs.

Pre-season for the Wild Rift Icon series is slated for March 20-21, 2021 and is touted by organizers as an exciting series of matches that pits eight professional esports teams against each other, including Globe Telecom’s esports team Liyab.

“Mineski has been an advocate of the local esports community for years. As we roll out these exciting tournaments through our partnership with Riot Games Southeast Asia and in collaboration with Globe Telecom and OPPO, we look forward to delivering truly exciting experiences and to discovering the next big names in gaming,” said Mineski Philippines country manager Mark Navarro.

Updates on registrations and broadcasts of the tournaments will be posted on the official PPGL Facebook page.

Local esports organizations, meanwhile, which are interested to apply as a partner to the national plans for the Wild Rift SEA Icon Series and VALORANT Challengers Tour can reach out to Mineski at riotgames@mineski.net. — Michael Angelo S. Murillo
