Computer maker Lenovo has announced that it will once again host “Legion of Champions Series II” (LoC) (formerly League of Champions), a major gaming competition in the region.
In collaboration with Intel, the second edition of this gaming battle is expected to bring even more excitement to Asia’s gaming scene with three new markets joining the championship.
Teams from eight markets competed in their local finals, and winning teams will gather in Bangkok, Thailand, later this month for the ultimate show down.
In the Philippines, the series of recruitment activities for LoC teams kick-started in November 2017, in partnership with Garena PH.
A total of 565 gamers and 113 teams went through seven elimination rounds. The in-market finals, which was held last December 9, 2017, saw talented gamers in the Philippines battle it out.
The last team left standing – Wargods Redlyt – will be representing the Philippines in the finals.
Kevin Joseph “WG Persona RL” Ramos added, “I was very impressed with the quality and scale of last year’s tournament and I’m thrilled to hear that it will be even bigger this year. I am honored to get this opportunity to meet other top-notch gamers in the region.”
Michael Ngan, Lenovo Philippines country general manager, said: “E-sports and gaming are not only burgeoning, but gaining popularity beyond gamers to a more general audience. For gaming fans, e-sports competitions are the Olympic Games of the 21st century. As a leader in technological innovation supporting this trend, we want to continue building top-notch gaming experiences for enthusiast players not only through our product offerings but also through providing a platform to nurture these gamers and grow the community.”
Wargods Redlyt will attend LoC 2018 held in Bangkok between 26 and 28 January 2018.
