PH pro gaming league kicks off in support of frontliners

The Philippine Pro Gaming League (PPGL) returns for its third year of nationwide esports competition with a mobile-focused format and a bigger line up of fan-favorite esports titles such as “Mobile Legends: Bang Bang” and “Rules of Survival” mobile, while introducing new ones including “Marvel Super War” and “Call of Duty” mobile.

Due to varying degrees of quarantines in the country as well as strict provisions of social distancing, all qualifiers for the four featured titles will be held online only. Registration is free for all featured titles and interested participants are invited to register through the link which houses general PPGL Tournament Information.

This season, the league aims to accommodate all Filipino pro gaming aspirants while encouraging them to stay at home and observe social distancing with fresh tournament formats that will surely excite them.

Among many other firsts that the PPGL will be promoting this 2020 is the focus on gathering aid for institutions working round the clock to combat the pandemic. To fire off the new season, PPGL will cater to mobile game titles through daily cups, with long-form tournament runs on the horizon, which has at least two phases that can last multiple weeks.

Another big change this year is the addition of Community Cups, where fans are invited to play with their favorite streamers and esports influencers like Z4pnu, C.hix, GhostWrecker, Kristine Santamena and Een Mercado, and shoutcasters like Shinboo and Manjen for “ML:BB.” The community cups will run for six straight weeks starting in the last week of April until the first week of June. Aside from a daily P10,000 cash prize, winning teams will also be playing for the benefit of the Philippine Heart Center for a total donation of P680,000.

Group stage broadcasts

Launched on April 28, the PPGL will have group stage broadcasts for CODM and ROS on June 20 and 21, respectively. The group stages will conclude with “ML:BB” and Marvel Super War starting July 11.

Teams who survive the group stages will be facing off against each other from July 31 to August 2 to crown the season’s Philippine Pro Gaming League champions.
