Gogagah.com | All-women Esports Tournament ‘Liga Adarna: Laban Para Sa Korona’ To Support COVID-19 Initiatives | Eplayment Entertainment, the first esports multi-platform in the Philippines, has recently partnered with the country’s leading wireless provider, Smart Communications, in launching a charity event for COVID-19 initiatives called ‘Liga Adarna: Laban Para Sa Korona.’
‘Liga Adarna: Laban Para Sa Korona’ is an all-female esports league that aims to help charities and frontliner organizations affected by the pandemic. Participants are encouraged to have a partner charity institution upon joining. The winners and their chosen charities have the chance to win hundreds of thousands in cash, as well take home the much-coveted Liga Adarna Crown. Titles to be played and rewards that are up for grabs are the following: Valorant for Php 20,000; DOTA 2 for Php 20,000; and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) for Php 100,000. Aside from the chance of winning the cash prize, the partner beneficiaries will also be featured in various contents (such as videos, etc) to be published on social media to be able to help them with their fundraising and other initiatives.
In addition, ‘Liga Adarna: Laban Para Sa Korona’ will also have a segment wherein the businesses or side hustles of the gamers will be promoted. This is to put the spotlight on players who are building a career outside of esports. Meanwhile, participants who are working as frontliners will be given a special gaming care package as a token of appreciation for all the hard work that they are doing for the country.
‘Liga Adarna’ was launched last 2019 to answer the call for the inclusivity of women in the rising esports field. For years, the lack of representation for women gamers in esports has been a major issue, this is why ‘Liga Adarna’ worked towards raising awareness and inclusivity in such a male-dominated space. During the tournament’s first run, they were able to tap 8 teams for DOTA 2 Qualifiers and 16 teams for MLBB Qualifiers.
Smart Communications knows how important it is to take one’s passion to the next level, and they believe the inclusion of women in esports is one way to encourage more female esports enthusiasts to cultivate and grow their skills, and eventually, show their talent to the world. That’s why this 2020, they continue its support to Eplayment Entertainment in celebrating and highlighting the women in the gaming community—and for a cause—through ‘league.’
“These are exciting times not only for women in esports, but for women in sports in general,” says Patricia Gregorio, EPlayment Director.
Eplayment Entertainment changed its ‘Liga Adarna’ logo just for this special event. Note that ‘Liga Adarna: Laban Para Sa Korona’ is a special league and not the second season of the tournament. The next ‘Liga Adarna’ league is set to happen in the fourth quarter of 2020.
Registration for the event will start on August 10 through Mogul. The tournament will run from August 16 to September 27. All games will be live-streamed on Liga Adarna’s official Facebook page.
Co-presented by Smart Communications, ‘Liga Adarna: Laban Para Sa Korona’ is powered by Eplayment Entertainment and Tanduay Rhum Official, with Mogul as the league’s official platform partner. This is in cooperation with Razer and media partner, Esports News PH.
We will bring the battle to COVID-19, and we will win! See you at the tournament!
