Following the launch of Predator Gaming two years ago, the premium gaming line is announcing the arrival of the Asia Pacific Predator League 2018, its brand-new DOTA:2 league and esports competition. The Philippines joins the action together with seven other countries as it begins its first Regional Qualifier in Bukidnon on November 18. The emerging victor of the Philippine Qualifier will be heading to Indonesia to compete for the $150,000 prize pool.

The most anticipated esports competition, Asia Pacific Predator League 2018 is set to hold elimination rounds in seven countries in Asia Pacific, namely Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, India, Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Indonesia, where the final round will be held.

The first elimination round of the Predator League will be conducted in each country, and will last for approximately three months (until January 2018). The Philippine Leg consists of four Regional Qualifiers, each with a prize pool of P30,000, and the National Finals, with a prize pool of P100,000. The Regional Qualifiers will be held in various areas of the country, namely Mindanao (Bukidnon), Visayas (Bacolod), North Luzon (La Union), and NCR (Marikina). Winners of these qualifiers will move on to compete at the National Finals. The victor of the National Finals will then represent the Philippines in the Predator League final round, and will compete against the national winners of the other APAC countries for the total prize pool of $150,000.
