MANILA, Philippines – While the Philippine contingent for the Asian championship of the World Cyber Games is currently training on their own, they promised to play hard in this year’s global competition, an executive of the World Cyber Games Philippines organizer eSports said.

The teams are now playing against players from other countries in the official Asian championship website.

Michael Vinluan, general manager of eSports, said the players are now training “within their natural grounds” where they are most comfortable.

The Philippine team will be competing in WarCraft III: Defense of the Ancients (DotA), Guitar Hero III, Virtua Fighter V, and Need for Speed: ProStreet.

The country’s representative to DotA is Team Mineski, which is composed of Rhymel Olete, Jose Silva, Jr., Ronald Robins, Kendrick Sy, and Rovic John Perez.

The Philippine team for DoTA has already been set for Group C, along with Indonesia and Malaysia, according to eSports.

Filipino player Israel Magante will represent the Philippines in Need for Speed: ProStreet. He is matched up against Japan and Malaysia in Group D.

Guitar Hero III Philippines representative Luis Benesa will compete against China and Vietnam in Group D.

Philip Ortiz will fight against Japan and Thailand in Virtua Fighter V.
