What Filipino Esports Personalities Wish for in 2020
From days of e-Sports past, esports in the Philippines has steadily grown throughout the years. Mineski going to Worlds in 2012, hosting the Manila Major in 2016, TNC Predator winning the country’s first-ever Dota 2 Major in the MDL Chengdu Major – among others, esports in the Philippines is continuing to grow and as we enter a decade anew, we asked a few prominent individuals in the industry for their wishlist for the local esports scene in 2020 and beyond.
David Sison, Project Manager at Mineski
I just wish for better grassroots and regional support. We need to look to the next generation of players, and hope that the old guard (teams, players, influential persons) can help organizers pave the way for the next generationADVERTISEMENT
Gariath Concepts, Makers of ESGS
For the Philippine esports and gaming industry to sustain the momentum built in 2019, and use the momentum to propel itself greater heights this 2020 and beyond!
Dan “Leo” Cubangay, Shoutcaster
In 2020, I wish to continue connecting the mainstream and esports world. Basically more work involving things like TV coverage and LAN events. For the industry, I hope more people become open to English broadcasts. More than ever, it is now a necessity as we reach the global stages of esports.FEATURED STORIES
Caisam “Wolf” Nopueto, Shoutcaster and Host
A bigger tournament/league/ecosystem for Dota 2, so that we’ll have more LAN events to follow. For myself, more international casts, be it Dota 2, Mobile Legends, or whatever tomorrow brings
The support for esports in the country is reaching an all-time high, with companies such as Globe and Smart, Mineski, Gariath Concepts, Rumble Royale, etc. leading the way. What’s your wish for esports in the coming decade?
