Last Sunday, January 27, capped the Predator League’s PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) Philippine Finals. Over P200,000 in cash prizes were awarded to the winning teams. Also at stake is the honor to represent the Philippines in the Pan Asia Pacific competitions.
PUBG is a player vs. player shooter game. It is currently one of the most popular FPS (first person shooter) games in the Philippines.
PUBG PREDATOR LEAGUE PHILIPPINE FINALS
A total of 16 top teams from all over the Philippines competed for the Philippine championship title. The teams are: Team No Future, Miraculum, TNC, ArkAngel, Anonymous Ilonggos, Nirvana, Vulture Gaming, Mistah, DPT, AdMiral, Ronin, 5peaks, Patriots, Vortexfarm, NCGC Vortex, and Bosons.
This is where the teams played at the Glorietta 2 Activity Center where the finals were held. While they all seemed like friends in real life, there was no mercy against other combatants in game! Most of them also had fans watching and cheering during the match.
Scoring: The team with the highest score wins. This is determined by a point system tallied from 12 action-packed rounds. The winning team will also get a chance to represent the Philippines at the Predator League Finals 2019 in Thailand on February 15 – 17, 2019 for a chance to get a slice of the USD 400,000 pool prize.
Predator League is one the biggest eSports tournaments worldwide. Only the best of the best teams from 13 participating countries will fight for the Predator Shield and prove to be the greatest e-sports team in the region.

Predator has the most complete line of gaming devices ranging from laptops, desktops,and monitors with the latest technologies, enhancing the eSports community’s gaming experience.
“Predator’s support for this tournament reinforces the brand’s commitment to the gaming industry in the Philippines and in the region.

THRONOS GAMING CHAIR
Popular gamer / cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao unveiled the Thronos Gaming Chair.
The Thronos Gaming Chair “opens” and “closes” to let the gamer fully immerse into the game. The chair also has haptic feedback that also allows the gamer to feel the intensity of the game. When I saw it, I felt that another science fiction dream has become reality. It looks insane! If you’re an avid PC gamer, I don’t think you’d ever want to leave this chair.
The chair is adjustable and includes an ergonomic seat design, footrest, and a cabin that reclines up to 140 degrees. The overhead brace supports three 27-inch gaming monitors and a space for a Predator gaming PC. Integrated with a Predator PC and triple Predator monitors plus gadgets, the Predator Thronos is really more than a gaming chair — it’s a gamer’s ultimate cave.
The Predator Thronos is customizable depending on the gamer’s preference. Its CPU is interchangeable from POS-610 RGB, PO9-500 RGB to the best option P09-900 RGB and its monitor from Nitro XV272U P, Nitro XV273K P to the much-raved Predator XB273K. Predator offers three packages with SRP starting at PHP 699,999.
The Predator Thronos is already available – they have a model unit you can check out at the Predator Concept Store on the 3rd Floor, SM Cyberzone, The Annex, SM City North EDSA starting on February 1, 2019, 11am. You can also get a chance to see Alodia there!
