This will be the first time that the World GameMaster Tournament (WGT) is held here in the Philippines. Not to be mistaken with the World Cybergames, WGT is still one of the largest game tournaments that started on 2006 in different parts of the world.
Sponsored by Asus and Intel, this year’s WGT will come here in the Philippines and is open to all 13yo and above players nationwide. There will be three types of games for our WGT:
- 5v5 DOTA
- 5v5 Counterstrike 1.6
- Need for Speed: ProStreet
Online registration will start on September 5th when the official site goes live. There will be a registration fee (just to make sure that players will commit) of Php1000 per team (DOTA, CS) or Php300 per individual (NFS) but they will be refunded once you appear during the eliminations.
Elimination rounds starts on Sep. 20-21 for Cebu (Mango Square) and Davao (Voyztrek) and Sep. 27-28 for Manila (Cyberone SM Megamall). Finals would be on Oct. 24-25 in Cyberzone SM Marikina.
For DOTA team winners, the prize structure are as follows:
- 1st place – Php15,000 (elims), Php75,000 (Finals)
- 2nd place – Php10,000 (elims), Php50,000 (Finals)
- 3rd place – Php5,000 (elims), Php25,000 (Finals)
If you somehow don’t win at least you’ll get a shirt. Hehehe. Time to dust off those DOTA skills and gather up some teammates.
