Last Saturday, thousands of gamers from different parts of the country flocked to the World Trade Center in Pasay City to be part of the biggest and grandest e-Sports event of the year, Level Up! Live 2013.

Level Up! Live 2013 was held in World Trade Center, Pasay City.

The venue was wall-to-wall with online gaming tournaments, with no less than nine national crowns at stake. The culminating finals for Ragnarok Philippine Championships, RAN "Ranbulan", Cabal Champions of Nevareth, Grand Chase Digmaan, Eligium Galgaron Battle Arena , Point Blank National Bakbakan, Perfect World Phoenix Council Wars, Rohan Bloodwars, and Assault Fire Love Masters Cup were fought over by the best online gaming warriors. 

The last team standing won cash prizes, rare and powerful in-game items and the bragging rights that come with being a champion at Level Up! Live. A total of PhP 1,000,000 in cash prizes was also given away to the champions and runner-ups. 

Each team fought a good fight and played their best during the event.

A first for Level Up! Live was the Level Up! Live Grand Prix. It is a series of all-day online game tournaments where hundreds of competitive gamers were also given a taste if what it's like to compete in a prestigious event like Level Up! Live. The winners went home with a tournament crown and exclusive in-game items for their team.

Level Up! Live didn't just celebrate gamers' skills in-game, it also celebrated their real world beauty and talents. The crowd was wowed with colorful costumes during the cosplay and Headgear competitions. We managed to snap a photo of Asian Tony Stark.

The fans also cheered for the fairest maidens of gaming at the Ms. Level Up! 2013 pageant.
