It was the 3rd edition of the Annual eSports Festival in Cebu held at the SM Trade Hall. I myself am a gamer and a big fan of eSports having a never ending passion watching and supporting the games. I eventually ended up becoming a part of the Mineski Events Team since 2011 but since I graduated and started working I wasn’t that active anymore and as a consequence couldn’t quite catch up with the eSports scene.
DSC_0251I only attended the 3rd and last day to watch the Championship games but I came without much expectations since I thought that the eSports scene was on a decline. But as soon as I entered the trade hall I was stunned by how many spectators the event drew and contrary to what I thought the eSports scene was actually getting bigger! As usual there was the cosplay event, the rig competition and the beautiful creatures called “booth babes”.

DSC_0218As for the games included there was Hearthstone, Street Fighter 4, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Star Craft 2 and the much awaited Dota 2. Dota 2 was the main event once again with participants from Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Mongolia, South Korea, Manila and our Local team Arcanys. Arcanys dominated Group B having a flawless 3-0 record while MVP from South Korea took 2nd place. In the other group The Prime (Indonesia) and MSI-EvoGT (Manila) upset one of the favorites coming into this tournament Mith.Trust (Thailand) and Orange Esports (Malaysia) both ending up with a score of 2-1.

In the elimination round MSI-EvoGT won two close fought battles with both games reaching 60+mins beating our local heroes from Arcanys 2-0 and therefore were headed for the finals. On the other hand MVP didn’t have it easy either finishing off The Prime 2-1 making it South Korea vs Philippines for the finals.
DSC_0204 The crowd was kinda down after our local heroes have fallen, but still everybody went on to watch the finals and cheer on our countrymen from Manila. MVP went on to win the first game but MSI bounced back making the crowd go wild. However during the final game the Koreans displayed their skill and composure  beating our friends from Manila and winning the ieSF Asian Championship.

DSC_0323It was another great event and props to Brian Lim, Tryke, Gamevolution, Cheap Rigs, the sponsors and especially the crowd and players for making this such a great experience. Esports is much more than just playing video games, it’s about getting to know people all around the world sharing one passion and one love. Through Esports I made a lot of precious friends all over the world and I pray and hope that one day society and the government will finally change their way of thinking that video games only lead to violence and students cutting classes. Thanks for everybody making the event possible and I hope to see you guys around next year again!
