As the summer heat continues to rise, tension in the South-East Asian Dota 2 community similarly looks to reach its climax, with the Mineski Pro-Gaming League Season 7 South-East Asian Grand Finals (MPGL7 SEA Grand Finals) set to unfold this coming weekend, May 9-10. Born in the Philippines, the grand finale of what has become the region’s premier esports event makes its way to Selangor, Malaysia, as part of the 2015 Selangor Cyber Games (SCG). Its prize pool of 50,000 USD (2.2 Million php) far eclipses the previous season’s prize pool of 1 Million php (~22.2 thousand USD), making it by far the biggest prize pool in Philippine Dota 2 history. 12 of the best teams from 7 countries in and around the region are set to duke it out, not just for the lion’s share of the prizes, but for the glory of being named the best team in this part of the world.
Teams from the following countries have already confirmed their participation for this weekend’s festivities:
- South Korea
Two teams will be flying to Malaysia this Friday, May 8, in order to represent the Philippines, namely GIGABYTE.Mineski and TNC Pro Team
Once again, the MPGL7 SEA Grand Finals is sponsored by none other than GIGABYTE and SteelSeries, companies who, due to their years of experience of working with the Mineski-Events Team, fully believe that this latest installment to the MPGL will be better than all that has preceded it.
