Who says e-sports aren’t a viable activity?

Not Taytay Councilor Kyle Gacula who is supporting gamers by offering E-sports scholarships to the grand champion winners of the Best Taytay Mobile Legends tournament.

In a Facebook post, Gacula noted that professional e-sports players have won as much as $34 million in e-sports tournaments.

E-sports are new, and many don’t take take seriously, claiming that these are a waste of time, he said.

But he said many people could rise in life through E-sports.

He believes local governments should develop, discover, and incentivize local players, he said.

Schools also offer courses related to E-sports, he said. These develop students’ skills while giving them quality education, he added.

Now he is joining the effort to develop gamers by offering E-sports scholarship.

He’s the gamers’ best friend!

“Alam niyo na ba na meron ng mga propesyonal na kumikita sa mga E-Sports tournament? Ang largest prize pool (kabuuan ng premyo) sa isang E-Sports tournament kung di ako nagkakamali ay sa Dota 2 The International 2019 na 34 million US dollars na kung icoconvert natin ay mahigit kumulang 1.7 billion pesos. Grabe nakakalula.

Ang E- Sports ay isang bagong larangan mundo ng palaro. Sa totoo lang madami pang di sumeseryoso dito. Madaming nagsasabi na kasayangan lang ng oras ang pag aatupag nito at malabong may mapala sa bagay na ito.

Pasensya na po pero baliktad ang pananaw ko. May nakikita akong magandang hinaharap sa buhay ng ating henerasyon at pag asenso dahil sa larangan ng E-Sports. Naniniwala ako na dapat gumawa ng paraan ng LGU para madevelop, madiskubre at maincentivize ang kanilang local players.

Ngayong linggo magkakaroon tayo sa VIRTUAL HAMAKA FESTIVAL natin ng Mobile Legends Tournament in partnership with SMART na may prize na

15,000 pesos sa GRAND CHAMPION, 10,000 pesos sa FIRST RUNNER UP, 8,000 pesos sa SECOND RUNNER UP at 5,000 pesos sa THIRD RUNNER UP. Eto po details at link para sa mga gusto sumali:

Di po ako nakatie up sa event na ito ngunit nakiusap po ako sa ating Youth Affairs Office at nagkwento na sa ibang mga paaralan madami ng kurso na related sa E-SPORTS. Sinabi ko na madami na rin kolehiyo ngayon na nag offer ng scholarship para sa E-SPORTS. Aside from the development of their skills nakakakuha rin sila ng quality education.

I’m proud to announce Taytay will be awarding its first ever E-SPORTS SCHOLARSHIP to the GRAND CHAMPION WINNERS of BEST TAYTAY MOBILE LEGEND TOURNAMENT.

Let us support our local gamers and our E-SPORTS community!” Gacula posted.
