The fact that we are still around and growing is proof that we?re on the right track,? Colayco said. Jake San Diego, general manager of Play Web Games, said the unity theme rang loud among the gamer communities which used to be strong rivals. ?We worked hard to come up with an event that is all-inclusive and brings gamers together. The group has grown larger and now we see how the combined strength of the clans and guilds boost the local gaming industry and keeps it going strong.? On the match floor, teams battled it out for nine national championship titles, including Cabal Champions of Nevareth, Grand Chase Digmaan, KOS ProTour, Point Black National Bakbakan Tournament, Perfect World Phoenix Council Wars, RF Online Novus Elite Squad Tournament, RAN Online RANbulan, Rohan Blood Wars and Ragnarok Online. ?It?s every gamer?s dream to win a tournament, especially a national championship title,? San Diego explained. ?That?s why they invest so much time and skill to play a good game. LU! Live makes that dream possible for them every year.? For those who did not compete, the event offered fun side events like the Cosplay competition, Guild Rally and the Miss LU! Live pageant. Local rapper Gloc-9 and rock group Kamikazee opened and closed the tw-day event, while Artista Academy finalists Akihiro Blanco and Chanel Morales were also present to entertain the crowd. Guild communities also manned fair booths that offered merchandise and treats for gamers.
