Team Liyab, the professional esports team of Globe in partnership with Mineski, secured their first Philippine Pro Gaming League (PPGL) titles at the League of Legends (LoL) and Arena of Valor (AOV) events. The team defeated fellow local greats TNC, Resurgence and Kidlat in last weekend’s tournament held at Ayala Malls Feliz in Pasig to take home the crown and a total of P400,000 in prizes.
The Liyab LoL squad faced fellow powerhouse Arkangel in the semifinals of the first day. Arkangel managed to surprise Liyab in the opening game, and took the lead of the series. Nonetheless, the team’s championship experience led them to reign supreme over competition and took over the next two games in dominating fashion to book their spot in the grand finals.
In the finals, Team Liyab LoL went against TNC, the same squad that defeated them in last year’s PPGL. The team came out prepared and swinging, as they took out TNC with two quick victories to grab the PPGL 2019-Season 1 LoL championship title.
