Let the games begin!

Mineski, Globe, Riot Games, and OPPO are putting together a series of esports tournaments this year for Valorant and League of Legends: Wild Rift.

Mineski Philippines, the country’s premier esports organization, unveiled a roster of tournaments and activities under its exclusive partnership with Riot Games Southeast Asia. 

Reuniting with its long-time partner, Globe, as well as enlisting OPPO as its official mobile phone company partner for gaming, Mineski will operate the official national tournaments through the Philippine Pro Gaming League (PPGL).

Tournaments for both Valorant and League of Legends: Wild Rift 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.

With the adoption of a points system for Wild Rift, this will be the first time that a points system will be implemented for a mobile game. The “Wild Rift Points System by Globe” will govern the total cash prize that the best performing teams in the national tournament will receive. The total prize pool amounts to P10,000,000 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. The first pre-season tournament in the Philippines for Riot Games’ mobile MOBA promises an exciting series of matches that pits 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.

Local esports organizations who are interested to apply as a partner in relation to national plans for the Wild Rift SEA Icon Series and Valorant Challengers Tour can reach out to Mineski at riotgames@mineski.net.
