THE Philippines is hosting the upcoming RAN Online Global Tournament scheduled on October 4 at the SMX Convention Center, according to local game publisher IP e-Games who is organizing the event.

IP e-Games Vice President for Marketing Ed Pasion told hackenslash that the Philippines was chosen because of the size of the RAN community in Asia, as well as the support it is getting from RAN players in the Philippines.

IP e-Games said this will be the first time that the Philippines will host the RAN Online Global tournament after Thailand in 2007.

The global competition will have the best RAN players from the Philippines, Hong Kong, South Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan and Thailand playing in a local area network-based competition.

IP e-Games said that a Philippine team is currently preparing to compete. The local team is composed of Vincent Van Amado, Carlo Angelo Magcalas, Martin Joseph Buday and Kevin Medina.

IP e-Games said there are online activities planned for the global event, including other player and guild competitions, sponsored competitions by Japanese fast food company Yoshinoya, item search contests, and even challenge-the-champion contests.

Other activities include beauty and brains contest, a dance competition, and a video making contest.

“E-Games is proud to be this year’s host and we want the Filipino gamers to experience a grand event specific to RAN Online,” Pasion said.
