MANILA, Philippines — The 2022 Asia-Pacific (APAC) Predator League Grand Finals has been staged with 15 teams from across the region competing in two events, Dota2 and PUBG in Japan from November 11-13.
“After two years of confinement and travel restrictions, we are delighted to meet the esports teams in person again. ‘Become One’ is the theme for Predator League 2022, highlighting the need to reconnect with other players and demonstrating Acer’s commitment to the gaming community,” said Andrew Hou, Acer Regional Operations President for Asia-Pacific.
The previous APAC Predator League was originally scheduled to be hosted by the Philippines, but was held online instead due to the pandemic. The Dota2 Grand Finals saw a battle between the two Filipino representatives TNC Pro Team and Neon Esports, with the former winning back-to-back champions after winning the 2019 tournament.
For this year’s APAC Predator League Grand Finals, TNC Pro Team, Polaris Esports, GrindSky Esports, and Execration will be the Filipino Dota 2 representatives, while ArkAngel Predator will be the sole Filipino representative for the PUBG Finals.
As one of the main sponsors of this year’s Esports and Gaming Summit (ESGS), Predator Gaming has launched Predator’s “Meta City” for gamers and gaming enthusiasts.
Fans can immerse themselves in the flight and racing simulators, play games such as Tekken, Dota 2 and Valorant at the Predator booth, take part in the various activities like the henna tattoo station and claw machine, as well as having a meet and greet session with Predator Gaming Ambassadors Kang Dupet, Reg Rubio, Amara, Een Mercado, Burg, Ashley Gosiegfiao, and Team Payaman led by Cong TV.
“We are very happy to meet members of the esports community and gaming enthusiasts again at events like ESGS 2022 and Predator League 2022 after more than two years of lockdown and restrictions. Our support for these events reiterates Acer’s commitment to the gaming community.” said Sue Ong-Lim, general manager of Acer Philippines.
Predator’s Meta City at ESGS will last until October 30.
