The Philippines will expectedly be well-represented in the upcoming Asia-Pacific Predator League 2020-2021 Grand Final from April 6 to 11.

After a year of postponements due to the ongoing pandemic, TNC Predator, Neon Esports, and Reckoning Esports will finally fly the Filipino flag in Dota 2 while ArkAngel Predator, TroubleMaku, and Gamers Lounge represent the country in PUBG.

A prize pool of $400,000 (P19.4 million), the Predator League Shield, and Acer Predator products will be up for grabs across qualifiers in the 4 pre-assigned sub-tournaments, two each for Dota and PUBG, to be held completely online.

TNC, which went all-Filipino with the addition of Marvin “Boomy” Rushton and Jun “Bok” Kanehara, will again be one of the teams to watch in Dota while ArkAngel Predator tries to build off last year’s PUBG Continental Series run.

High-chemistry TroubleMaku and the Gamers Lounge upstarts will also showcase their refined shooting skills in PUBG and they have been preparing for possible internet latency challenges brought by the online format instead of traditional on-site LAN.

Back to the Dota side of the five-day tournament series, Neon is set to parade its star-studded lineup while Reckoning is also out to prove its worth in battle.

With the tournament now going fully online, VIP ticket holders of the canceled Mall of Asia Arena event are now entitled to Predator loot boxes on top of full refunds.

Matches will be broadcast live and free on Acer Predator’s Facebook and Twitch channels. – Rappler.com
