The World University Cyber Games is opening a slot to a campus esports team in the Philippines for DOTA 2. The competition will feature teams from the United States, Peru, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Russia and China fighting for a share of the 12,500 USD prize pool.
It will be held in Sanya, Hainan in China from December 4 to 7 with 1,000 players participating from 20 countries across several esports such as League of Legends, Arena of Valor, Hearthstone and The King of Fighters XIV.
WUCG was founded in 2016 by former professional World Elite players “2009” and “Misaya” as an effort to promote university and college students in pursuing their esports dreams. Since its conceptualization, WUCG has expanded exponentially, expanding the prize pool and the number of countries participating yearly.
Due to the competition being an international event, all teams will be required to have a passport to participate.
Deadline of submission will be on November 6. The qualifiers will be held this weekend on December 9 and 10.
The Philippine qualifiers will be organized by CEDO under the Nexus program.
Nexus aims to provide opportunities in campus esports as well as to hone skills and character through games. There will be a showcase during the Nexus GameCraft & Esports Expo this December 1 at the FEU Institute of Technology to highlight the various international opportunities and tournaments for offer to students.
