UniPin, the leading digital content enabler in Southeast Asia (SEA), announces that it will be hosting UniPin Ultimate Plays, an eSports tournament series featuring the critically acclaimed first person shooter – Call of Duty: Mobile (CODM) to kick-start the eSports scene in the Philippines.
“The eSports tournament series featuring the hit shooter with over 100 million downloads will be the first of many more tournaments to come; Filipino gamers can rejoice as this signifies that there will be more battle arenas in the future for them to show off some jaw-dropping skills,” stated Debora Imanuella, the Senior VP of Community. “More than just being an epic showdown between top local CODM teams competing against one another, it serves as a path for gamers across Philippines to realize their dreams in eSports.”
The CODM tournament series is separated into two categories – males and females, featuring a total prize pool of PHP 20,000. It will recruit 32 top local teams with five to six players each for both categories, totaling up to an estimate of 360 participants. Those who want to prove that they are the best CODM team can register for a spot at https://kalaro.gg/ui/tournaments/65 and at https://kalaro.gg/ui/tournaments/66 starting April 26th. The Girls Tournament Finals is taking place on May 23, 2021; the Boys Tournament Finals is on May 30, 2021.
“At UniPin, we always work to unify gaming. As more Filipinos today game in one form or another, I hope the addition of more eSports events will push eSports in the Philippines to the next level; and help us unite Pinoy and Southeast Asian gamers into the UniPin community,” remarked Cynthia David, Country Manager of UniPin Philippines.
In addition, UniPin is planning the return of the largest eSports event in SEA – the Southeast Asia Cyber Arena (SEACA), in the next months to crown the new champions in 2021.
