The Tekken 7 champion, along with the finalists, will also get a chance to be picked by the founding teams of The Nationals, the country’s first ever eSports franchise model league that serves as a hotbed for Philippine representatives to major international eSports events. These founding teams include PLDT-Smart, Cignal, HappyFeet, Bren eSports, TNC Pro Team, and STI Holdings.

 

Aside from Tekken 7, ESGS will also host the DOTA 2 ‘Road to the Nationals’ finals featuring some of the country’s top teams, with over Php1.2 million in prizes for the champion.

 

Among the DOTA 2 teams that have secured final spots to battle it out at ESGS 2018 include: Voyager representing Bacolod; Davao’s Pride (Davao), TaskUs Titans (Iloilo); Quid Pro Quo (Manila); and Sterling Global Dragons (Manila). The top team at the upcoming qualifier at UGZ137 in Imus, Cavite will also grab a spot in the finals.

 

As part of the ‘Road to the Nationals,’ PLDT Home Fibr and Smart are also set to host the country’s biggest Mobile Legends tournament soon.
