Philippines wins Bronze in World Cyber Games 2012

For the first time ever in Philippine Gaming and World Cyber Games history, the Philippines was able to secure a bronze medal.

World Cyber Games, an international competitive video-gaming event, was recently held in Kunshan, China last November 29 to December 2. The game festival featured different tournaments on established games such as Starcraft 2, Warcraft 3, Dota 2, FIFA 12, and CrossFire.

MSIEvoGT.CrossFire.TNC, a professional gaming team representing the Philippines, reached the top ranks of the CrossFire tournament, a historical feat that made a lot Filipino gamers proud.

Joining them at the apex of the tournament was China’s Invictus Gaming(iG), Vietnam’s Freedom, and Russia’s Virtus.Pro. Their first head-on match on this battle for medals was against iG, with a 2-0 result in favor of China’s representatives. Losing the chance for a gold, Philippines faced the losing team of the other match, Virtus.Pro.


Described as a close match, the battle for bronze came out with MSI-EvoGT.CrossFire.TNC as the victors, leaving a historical mark on Philippines e-sports. You can watch their game footage against China here:  Game 1 | Game 2

The bronze medal acquired by the team is the Philippine’s first in the World Cyber Games history.

After this, we still have PH teams competing in another international event which is the Asian Cyber Games which will happen on Dec. 21-22, 2012 at Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. The games will be Dota 2 and Counterstrike: Global Offensive (CS:GO). We hope that we will be able to duplicate our success in this event.
