TL;DR: Teams across Asia-Pacific (including 6 from the PH) will battle it out on online-only Predator League 2020/21 Grand Final.
As the Asia-Pacific Predator League 2020/21 Grand Final pushes through after a year of hiatus, teams who qualified for Predator League 2020 Grand Finals as well as organizations invited by Acer can finally display their skills in the upcoming online-only tournament.
Given the circumstance and the scope of this year’s festivities, the competition is divided into four sub-tournaments — two for Dota 2 and two for PUBG. Teams were pre-assigned to their designated sub-tournament.
A total prize of USD 400,000USD to be pooled across qualifiers to the four sub-tournaments and the winners will also be given the coveted APAC Predator League Shield and Acer Predator products.
On the other hand, the tournament’s much-awaited return isn’t the only source of excitement. Complementing its heralded return are the storylines involved including the six teams who will represent the Philippines.
One of the two games that will sparkplug this year’s league is the popular battle royale game, PlayersUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG). Three teams will represent the Philippines under PL 2020/21 PUBG APAC Region.
First is ArkAngel Esports who had a great run in the first PUBG Continental Series last year, hoping they can get the fire burning to this year’s Predator League. The brotherhood of TroubleMaku will also attempt to take home the championship as well as the up-and-coming Gamers Lounge.
Dota 2 fans are also in for a treat as the most sought-after teams across Asia-Pacific go head-to-head for the Dota 2 sub-tournaments. TNC Predator once again will carry the region’s banner on the international stage. The team recently made a big decision to keep its roster all-Filipino with the addition of Marvin “Boomy” Rushton and Jun “Bok” Kanehara.
Philippine esports Neon Esports showcased its lineup consisting of Filipino superstars John Anthony “Natsumi-“ Vargas, Erin Jasper “Yopaj” Ferrer, and Rolen Andrei Gabriel “skem” Ong. Moreover, Reckoning Esports secured its spot in the tournament to further spice up the competition.
Building the hype of the Asia-Pacific Predator League 2020/21 Grand Final, Predator is also giving away up to Php 40,000 discount on select Predator laptops, desktops, and monitors.
Support and cheer on our local teams as the season begins on April 6 to April 11, 2021. For more information regarding tournament schedules and programs, follow Acer’s social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
