Global technology and innovation leader Lenovo, through its gaming line Legion, took the spotlight at the 2019 Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS) held recently at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City. It was a three-day showcase of the latest top-of-the-line Legion gaming hardware, with pulse-pounding Legion of Champions (LoC) action plus an appearance by Lenovo brand ambassador Megan Young.
All eyes were on the Lenovo booth as Legion hosted the LoC Philippines qualifying tournament finals with a prize pool of PHP 100,000. The winning team will represent the country in the upcoming LoC Series IV to be held in Bangkok, Thailand this December.
LoC IV, Lenovo’s flagship Asia Pacific esports competition in partnership with Intel, will bring together the top gamers from 12 markets in the region, with Australia and New Zealand joining for the first time, to face-off in an intense international Grand Finals showdown. The competition will introduce two new crowd-favorite games: Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), as well as LoC’s first ever all-female tournament, Legion of Valkyries (LoV).
“As the Philippines continues its growth path in gaming and esports, we at Lenovo, through the Legion brand, commit to support by continuously innovating and providing the tools that will help maximize Filipino gamers’ potential in this arena and allow them to compete alongside the best in the world,” said Lenovo Philippines Country General Manager Michael Ngan.
