The year 2021 has been a monumental one for the Filipino esports scene. Esports proved it could thrive amid a pandemic from world championships and local online tournaments.
But the battle for pride and glory is just about to get more intense as both the 19th Asian Games and the 31st Southeast Asian Games will feature esports competitions. These tournaments will commence in September and November 2022, respectively.
KarlTzy (Mobile Legends)
KarlTzy will be bringing his wide range of experience as a SEA Games gold medalist, MPL-PH champion, and M2 World Championship MVP to Echo’s star-studded roster. With a new set of veterans to guide him, the only question left is: will the guys have good chemistry? If yes, then we might see KarlTzy at the top once again.
Despite being considered as the biggest underdog in the tournament, Team Secret finished 5th – 8th place and gained the respect of its peers, proving that Filipinos can keep pace with the best teams in the First-person shooter (FPS) scene.
DubsteP wrapped up the competition at the top 8 of the Average Combat Score leaderboards with 237.7. The promising duelist also dropped 45 frags on their Playoff-clinching series against Team Vikings.
