Bahamut Gaming beats 47 teams to represent the Philippines at Lenovo’s Legion of Champions IV in Bangkok, Thailand
The four-man team of Bahamut Gaming bested 47 other teams during the Philippine League of Champions (LoC) qualifying tournament held recently at SM Megmamall Activity Center. After a day of intense PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) action, the team comprised of Mark Myles “Shrykos” Chin, Mark Gerald “Ryujin” Licanto, Brandenn “BMG_Rui” Buenviaje, and Larry “ShinRyuji” Yoro (Bahamut Gaming) took home a cash prize of USD 1,000 and won the right to represent the Philippines at LoC IV, which will be held at Pantip Pratunam Mall in Bangkok, Thailand from December 12-15, 2019.
“…the rise of the competitive gaming scene can no longer be ignored, and Lenovo is thrilled that the event [League of Champions] has been steadily growing ever since it started,” said Michael Ngan, General Manager, Lenovo Philippines.
The Legion of Champions (LoC) tournament is a testament to Lenovo’s continuing effort to foster the gaming community in the Philippines and in the entire Asia Pacific region.
Now in its fourth series, the LoC is bigger, better, and features two new crowd-favorite games: PUBG and CS:GO. In addition, teams from 12 markets in the region, now including Australia and New Zealand, will be battling it out for glory.
Both local champions and grand finalists will compete for the combined prize pool of USD$89,100 (approximately PhP 4.51 million). At the end of the competition, the team winning the PUBG tournament will walk away with USD$4,000 and USD$10,000 worth of Legion devices, while the winners of CS:GO will go home with USD$5,000 and USD$12,500 worth of Legion devices.
“As the gaming phenomenon further develops, rest assured that Lenovo Legion and the LoC will continue to provide eSports teams a competitive platform where they can enhance and hone their skills,” Ngan said.
