Predator Gaming staged the culmination of the Philippine leg of Asia Pacific Predator League 2018 on Monday evening at High Grounds Café in Quezon City. Four teams vied for supremacy over the game of DOTA: 2 and punched their ticket to the league’s grand finals in Indonesia.

The most anticipated eSports competition was staged in an intense fashion, with the playing venue being adorned with black stone boulders, crystals, snow, and grass to create an ice dungeon representative of Predator Gaming’s frost-forged vibe, creating a perfect backdrop for a dramatic end to the Philippine edition of this tournament.

At the end of a massive six hours of action, Quid Pro Quo ascended to the summit, defeating Alpha Gaming in a hotly-contested best-of-three final qualifier. Prior to entering the finale, the La Union-based team who earned its qualifying slot from the Nothern Luzon wars held at TNC Marikina defeated NCGC.Davao in the semifinals 2-0, while Alpha Gaming also zoomed past Vigggo.Net (2-0) in the semifinal bout of its own.

Meanwhile, Alpha Gaming who pushed QPQ to the limit will take home PhP 30,000, while semifinalists Vigggo.Net and NCGC.Davao will bring PhP 10,000 each. The Philippine leg of this gaming competition saw the participation of 127 teams of professional and non-professional gamers in line with Predator Gaming’s objective of empowering the amateurs to showcase their skills and talents on a global scene.
