Pagibig.TnC dominates GPPC Dota 2 Yet Again
Pagibig.TnC ravaged across 149 other teams on the 2-day online tournament and bagged the GPPC Dota 2 crown for the fourth time in a row.
The Gigabyte sponsored event was held last September 8-9, 2012. It was an open and free-for-all competition, and thus distinguished top players and recognized teams have been showing up in an effort to win a part of the Php 15,000 prize pool. More importantly, however, is the prestige to be etched on the record books as podium finisher on one of the rare monthly Dota 2 tournaments on the Philippines. Truly, winning a 150-team Single-Elimination tournament is no easy task,but as veterans would have said, "anything is possible on Best-of-1 matches".
The teams were spread through 4 sets, wherein the last 2 teams standing per set would advance onto the second play date. Advancing from Set 1 are Team F and JG, Set 2 was represented by Pagibig.TnC and Team Phantom, Set 3 had BASCAR and luhh, and Set 4 was won by Cc and Yosh+4.
There was no shortage of known local WC3 DotA players on the Playoffs, but the end was again ultimately won by the rather All-Star cast of Pagibig.TnC. The originally strong team arguably got even stronger with stand-in Michael Ross, the captain of DuskBin. Their worthy foe, JG, wasn't lacking on individual skills themselves - with a mixed-up team of iZone's Joven and Ewe, Pacific.Palit's Ace and 2 others. However, the final match was lopsided, and Pagibig.TnC showed that they are still at least a step ahead against other local teams. Yosh+4, meanwhile, took the 3rd place by beating Team Phantom.
While being called back-to-back-to-back-to-back Champion is a feat, a bigger one would be the fact this Champion team have been undefeated on all 4 of the legs of the GPPC Dota 2 Tournament.
